    Morning all

    Dull, damp, raining. Not very heavily but it's been going on since the early hours. Currently 17 degrees and that's the high for the day with the rain easing after lunch and the sun due to come out. Barometer down to 1004 mBar.

    Very fidgety night's sleep - my duvet was half off the bed this morning, which is very unusual for me.

    Morning all

    We had rain overnight! The first in weeks.

    Managed to trash the blade boss and woodruff key on the main mower yesterday, replacements due in the next couple of days. Had a bonfire last night to get rid of some of the garden waste/cuttings that the tree surgeons didn't take, which burned well.

    And now it's blue skies again.

    Rainy grey day to start the week, and is forecast to continue wet until at least lunchtime; a bit breezy as well

    Barometers decidedly down at 990/998mB

    Telly, apart from Monkey Life, has been some motorway cops thing on My5

    Final Monday of this gig tomorrow!

    Better get some sleep I suppose, so I'm rested and ready for the final frantic four-day rush to get it all finished

    Goodnight all

    Tea has been pork chops out of the Remoska, with chips, peas and gravy. Delicious

    That was the last two of the chops I bought on the market a few weeks before lockdown started, so they've been in the freezer for about a year-and-a-half. Tasted OK though

    The queuing traffic outside persists

    Traffic appears to be backing up a lot outside, particularly in the inside lane. I suspect this is related to the presence of a petrol station just up the road

    The Thanks/Likes plugin struggles with a thread that has so many thanks and likes.
    That's the solution then, ban all the most popular CUKers and only allow comments by drivelling sockies and others that nobody likes.

    Ran the remainder of Friday's joint of beef through the electric slicer, set to ultra-thin. So lunch has been a wholemeal bap stuffed with the results, and very nice too

    There's shedloads of it still left though; about a pound and a half. Should last for a while

    Afternoon denizens

    Fairly sunny out though with a fair amount of cloud too. Currently 19°C and heading for 21°, barometers down a little more at 1002/1010mB

    The sun has come out and it's turning into a nice, bright day. Checked the forecast again and the thunderstorms have gone away. Rain now expected overnight.

    Morning all

    Overcast but reasonably bright nonetheless, and dry. Currently 19 degrees with a high of 21 forecast. Thunderstorms also forecast around the 1300 and 1400 hours. Barometer down to 1013 mBar.

    Slept well enough. I must have had a strange dream as I woke with the feeling of 'did that happen?' but I don't recall the details.

    Couldn't see much on TV last night so thought I'd give Hetty Wainthrop Investigates (Sweaty Bumdrops Investigates in xoggoth terminology) a go. Watched it once before and not too bad. Turned out to be the same episode I'd watched before.

    I found S7 rather less than gripping in parts.

    Oddly I thought I hadn't watched S6 but in the event I must have watched it somewhere sometime.

    It's rather strange that the end of some series leaves a feeling of "Thank feck that's over" whilst others leave a sense of loss.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Warmer at 19.3 deg in here.

    1007 mBar, 29.74 in Hg, 755.3 Torr, 74% RH.

    Sunday.

    Shopping trip to Tesco and Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitisied and put away.

    No petrol queues were detected, though it was early.

    It's attempting to rain.

    Lunch: roast chicken & sausage, forgot the roast onion & roasties so I had those afterwards , a red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    It rained.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the sunshine.

    Entertainment: DSOTM.

    "Monte Walsh (1970)" with that Lee Marvin chap and that Jack Palance chap, and that Michael "Let's be careful out there" Conrad chap in a bit part.

    I think I've seen it before since bits seem familiar, which isn't really surprising.

    And, in other news, at 19:18, it's practically dark. Winter draws on. It's all downhill from here on in until the days start getting longer on the 23rd of December.

    It's being so cheerful that keeps me going.

    "Am Dro" at 20:00 on S4C: Merthyr, Aberystwyth, Talgarth, & Llanrwst.

    One of the contestants had an inneresting career in burlesque.

    "Endeavour" E3: "Terminus" at 21:00 on ITV1+1. Snowy. Obviously in The Before Times when we had snow & stuff.

    It's chucking it down.
