    I managed to put all my rubbish and recycling outside in between rain showers.

    Need to do a bit of housework in a bit.

    Are you going to sell them on eBay? Buyer collects?
    May put on Freecycle. Seem to be quite a lot of people driving ancient old cars round here. Have to keep well back if they are in front due to the stink.

    Trouble is, don't know how to describe some of them. Would anyone know what a "mosquito sex toy" was actually for?

    Lunch: a hot dog, and a couple of raspberry jam doughnuts

    The recycling bin has been trundled back in, whilst doing which I got rather wet as the rain has become persistent

    The map said he was seven deliveries from mine, but showed him parked close by. So I popped over to the window, just in time to see him getting back in his van and driving off!

    But when I popped down, the parcel was in the hall as the chap in the downstairs front had got the door. There was also another parcel for somebody else, so maybe the algorithm was going to send him here twice and he saw through its machinations or something

    Morning all

    Lovely bright sunny morning with a few fluffs of cloud here and there. Currently 14 degrees with a high later of 17. Rain expected overnight.

    Enjoying my day off so far, having had a nice long lie in and HWMBO bringing me coffee in bed.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
    Macadamia nuts are first planted in Hawaii 1892

    Steady drizzle out, and with all the windows and internal doors open to get some air flowing through the place, the living room and bedroom are now down from 25°C to 21°. I may have to reconsider switching to the summer duvet

    Expecting the delivery of some Apple AirPods Max today, being the over-the-ear headphones that can even tell when you move your head and things and adjust surround sound accordingly. I've fancied getting some for a while, but as I need to stuff olive oil down my ears a couple of times a day until next Wednesday ahead of the ear wax removal thing, I won't be able to use my hearing aids until then so I splashed out

    The DPD driver is currently just around the corner, literally thirty seconds' walk away. Yet he's on delivery 54 and I'm 81, so he won't be here for at least another half hour or so… and yes, refresh the page, and he's now three streets away

    Yesterday constructed two rose arches for our honeysuckle to spread out on. Now just need to figure out how to stabilise them. Made garlic bread and had it with garlic snails last night. Very tasty.

    Another flaming hot day.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Grey.

    White sky with a very few blue bits.

    Sunless.

    21.5 deg in here.

    1012 mBar, in Hg, 67% RH.

    Friday.

    The washing frenzy is in progress.

    Smalls in the WM.

    Smalls out of the WM and into the TD.

    Shirts in the WM.

    Walk walked in the rather cooler morning.

    Despite the half crown sized blister raised by The New Shoes, the old shoes were pressed back into service along with some Morrisons Strapping across said blister, enabling the longer walk to occur.

    Smalls out of the TD.

    Shirts out of the WM and into the TD.

    Cottons in the WM on the shirts setting bumped to 60 deg.

    Pollen count seems high.

    Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich on same x2, a yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Shirts out of the TD.

    Cottons out of the WM and into the TD.

    Five minutes more before the cottons are done.

    Yeah, right.

    And a mere 19 minutes later the cottons are airing on the banisters.

    Frenzy complete.

    Remembered to pop to the postbox on the far corner and post a Father's Day card before the last collection - well, the only collection, at 9am

    Morning denizens

    We finally had some proper rain arrive just after I went to bed last night, rather than the drizzle that fizzles out in no time that was all we'd had since the weather started to break. No rain at the moment, but it's grey and still damp out there now. Currently 14°C and not expected to get any hotter, chance of showers between 90% and 100% for the whole of the day and into the night, but barometers up a bit at 1008/1016mB

    Having a nectarine for breakfast, which makes a change from wholemeal toast

    Friday tomorrow, and the thing we've built so far is due to go live on Monday. So it'll either be a hectic day of trying to fix last-minute things that crop up, or a mellow day because we've sorted everything out and we're good to go

    I'm hoping for the latter, as I've got something else to work on for the next part of the project which is interesting and doesn't (yet) have any great amount of time pressure; and after the hectic week this has been, I could do with winding down a bit

    I'm glad I did the shopping earlier so I can just sit back and relax tomorrow evening, whichever way it turns out.

    An early night is called for now, I think.

    Goodnight all
