    Busy busy. However as I'm waiting on scripts to run I have time to pop in and inform the collective that my afternoon snack is a coffee and an out of date mince pie.

    I noticed that the stollen slices and mince pies left over from Christmas were past their best before date so probably best I eat them

    Morning denizens

    Sunny day but frosty with it, though a triangular area of the outbuilding roof has now been reached by the sun and thawed. Currently 2°C, which isn't a lot but we're only going to get to 4° before it starts cooling down again; barometers are back up high at 1030/1037

    Morning all

    Blue sky, dry. Chilly at 2 degrees with a high of 6 later. Barometer has bounced back up to 1033 mBar.

    Another busy day at the coal face beckons.

    Slept well but perhaps too well as I'm still a bit groggy.

    Telly whilst dining was more of that thing with Trading Standards raiding places selling fake trainers and so on. Not very interesting, but it's something to ignore whilst eating

    And then a bit of a Gomorrah-fest: S1E3 L'omm 'e casa (TV Episode 2014); S1E4 Sangue africano (TV Episode 2014); and S1E5 Il ruggito della leonessa (TV Episode 2014)

    During which the police showed up over the way, blocking the side road with two cars while a couple more lurked further up by the next side road. After about half-an-hour, they all went away again. No idea what they were up to, but if it was anything good it'll probably show up on their Twitter account

    Goodnight all

    My dad had one fitted 4 years ago. Does a great job, and yes a relatively easy op.

    My Dad is home from the hospital

    Turns out what they thought was a slow heartbeat is more complicated than that. At the GP's they reckoned it was about 32, and at home on the blood pressure thingy it thought the same, and in triage at A&E the same, which at least got him fast-tracked to Majors. But in there, it was around the mid-60s

    The explanation the consultant gave is that alternate beats of his heart are for some reason rather drawn out, so rather than "ba-dum, ba-dum, ba-dum" it's more like "ba-dum, baaaaa-dum, ba-dum". That drawn-out beat runs into the next one, so on lesser equipment they're only detected as one beat and it shows 32bpm. The more sophisticated equipment found somewhere like Majors can tell what's going on and, correctly, shows 64bpm

    So although there's clearly something that could do with being examined more closely, it's not necessarily as urgent as a 32bpm heart rate would be. They'll attach one of those 24-hour monitors to him, but there was no point keeping him in hospital for that because: they've got a long wait for beds; the 24-hour monitors for outpatients are if anything being dealt with more quickly than for inpatients; and he's got less chance of catching Covid at home

    Went on a long walk to a supermarket.

    Someone mentioned the moon on the way back so everyone on the bloody road was staring at it.

    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.

    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
