    Walk and cafe with loony lady 1. She was late as usual. Dunno which is worse, hanging around for 20 minutes waiting for her or still being in the shower when loony lady 2 turns up way early.

    Sounds like my Dad might need a pacemaker. Turns out they're pretty straightforward to install these days - local anaesthetic, and often home the same day

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    Sunny now, but there was a nasty bitter breeze in my face at the start. I think I'd prefer it coming from the other direction so it's in my face at the end, when I've warmed up

    Morning denizens

    Bit on the grey side with occasional near-sunshine through the thinner patches of cloud

    Quite mild at 8°C, but that's as good as we'll get. Barometers distinctly down at 1016/1024mB.

    My Dad went to the GP for an ECG just before and they said he should get to hospital ASAP so the cardiologists can have a look; his heart rate is around 33bpm, and they said it could just stop at any moment, and the quickest way to get seen was to go to A&E and say they'd sent him. So naturally he insisted on my sister, who'd accompanied him, taking him home so he could have his lunch before going

    I realise it'll be a better lunch than they provide in hospital, but there are times when you just have to accept that a flaccid corned beef sandwich is the more sensible option

    Not sure what they'll be able to do; he was ninety just before Christmas and is pretty frail nowadays, so I don't know if they'd be willing take the risk of trying to put a pacemaker in him should that be indicated

    Fog is weird, picked loony lady 1 up at airport yesterday and was clear and sunny until went through a village, really dense after that. Then went to karaoke in evening and awful, had to drive slowly. Was dreading driving back but by then it had almost all gone.

    Morning.

    Dry Wet.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Warmer in here at 13.2 deg.

    1025 mBar, 30.27 in Hg, 768.8 Torr, 14.866 psi, 63% RH.

    Wednesday apparently.

    Due to inclemency, no walk yet.

    Freecell score: 86%, running average 84%: not a good session.

    Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toasted crust, bramble jelly and marmalade sandwiches on same, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: The Bozo Bunter (the fat owl of the remove) show on TWAO.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the intermittent sunshine with big black dark clouds foreboding something or other.

    Morning all

    Still a bit on the dark side but clear sky and dry. Currently 6 degrees ('feels like' 4) with a high of 9 later. Cloud cover expected to increase as the day progresses. Barometer down to 1026 mBar.

    Slept well, all that mental effort must have been good for me!

    Overcast but dry out, and a positively balmy 6C

    Viewing during and after dining was Trucking Hell. Still no Rory, but apparently he's in the next one

    Then Gomorrah S1E2, Ti fidi di me? (TV Episode 2014). TBH it's unfolding pretty much as one expects a Mafia drama to unfold so far, but it's pretty good so I'll go along with it

    And finally S3E2 of Hanna, Grape Vines and Orange Trees (TV Episode 2021). This one seems to be getting into a bit of a rut, but maybe they'll come up with some startling twists soon

    Not as foggy out as last night, but a bit hazy

    Goodnight all
