    Lunch has been a Frenchified cheese and ham baguette from Paul at St Paul's (cos that entertained me).

    Pub for the wake has been booked.

    Speaking of lunch: Heinz tomato soup, with a couple of thick rounds of seedy bloomer toast

    I've got to go to the office tomorrow. I was worried they'd want me there in the morning, but managed to get them to let me off that. So I'll be heading down on the train that leaves two minutes after the cheapest tickets start and arriving in time for lunch

    Yes, I saw the timing chain bit - very clever

    Following the unexpected brightness & blueness of the sky, the weekly trudge to Tesco took place and the provender was duly washed, dried, dusted, sanitised, & put away.

    It did spot with rain a little on the way home, and the repaired "Bag for Life(tm)" didn't suffer a failure on the garden path this week.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toasted crust, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Tea: chicken in white sauce with rice n peas, some pear halves, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Also an almost ripe pear off the tree, and a not so ripe pear off the tree. V. difficult to tell the state of pears, 1 day past delicious & they're rotten.

    Took the detritus from the weekend's efforts out onto the pavement in the hope that the recycling engineers with take it all away tomorrow morning..

    Entertainment: Wheeler Dealers S13 E2 Volvo PV544. Twin SU carbs. Why didn't Edd use the lift pin? It's put there to do what he was doing with his thumb. I can see why very few mechanics know how to deal with dual SUs any more. .

    Morning all

    Blue sky with wispy fluff and chemtrails. Currently 7 degrees with a high of 15 expected. Unlikely to rain. Barometer down to 999 mBar.

    I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be in ClientCo's office today. I have a 90 minute meeting which would have been good as a F2F but was put in my diary as WebEx so I presumed that meant the person I'm meeting wasn't expecting to be in after all. Needless to say, I'm at home.

    I have Inside Man lined up on iPlayer, looks good. Also need to watch the last season of Shetland at some point. There's also a Storyville programme, One Day in Ukraine, which has auto downloaded due to series link. The BBC still manages to drum up some decent programming but it's a poor shadow of its former self, sadly.

    Blue skies on the walk (but about 7oC), then a brief rain shower after we got back in. Now back to blue skies again.

    The heating kicked on last night for the first time. Seems to be working OK, and at least one mouse appreciated staying in overnight. Maybe catch it later today.

    More wispy than cloudy out there, so it's about to turn sunny as the orb ascends above the buildings opposite. Autumnal though: currently 7°C, climbing to 14° later. The barometers have lost yesterday's 1mB gain, being back to 992/1000mB
