    Telephoned the parentals to wish my Dad happy father's day. Mum was upset that a shower had knocked all the petals off her roses, which were in full bloom and looking gorgeous.

    There's been a light shower here and it's still dull and damp out. I need to take the car for a drive to make life easier in the morning when I take it to the garage for its MOT.

    Morning.

    Damp.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Cooler at 20.7 in here.

    1004 mBar, 29.65 in Hg, 67% RH.

    Sunday.



    Sunday shop done, dusted, washed, rinsed, dried, sanitised and put away.

    Very busy this morning, queues for checkout before 10 a.m.

    There must be sommat going on.

    Lunch: roast chicken beef, some yog or other, probably a yellow corner one, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Still very here.
    Well there's a thing again.

    But editing this one works.

    The original post refused to post the edit several times with the "Can't load the post" error message.

    Until it did but the edits remain invisible.

    How the feck does that work then?

    The roast beef was pretty meh all in all.

    I think I prefer the chicken.

    I wonder how much beef & lamb reside in the freezer.

    In other other news: it's raining.

    Today will be spent fixing dodgy rounding errors. of which there are about 5 different ones depend on the software the core data comes from (although I find it frankly worrying that a system sends 1 figure to 1 output and a slightly different 1 to another one).

    The end result is that I need cludges at both ends to account for minor (and in the example of a different edge case. significantly larger but legitimate) differences.

    Morning all

    Dull and overcast this morning. There's a dampness to the air too and rain is expected. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 18 later. Barometer is at 1009 mBar.

    Arm aches from the jab but not as hurty as first time around.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:
    Toymaker 'Mattel' releases 15 new body types for their 'Ken' doll, including one with a man bun 2017

    Nice walk round one of those NGS open gardens with loony lady 1 yesterday. Today she wants me to go to Homebase with her to look for something or other. Keeps nagging me to get some new carpets. Like being married, except for one vital ingredient.

    No. They don't know me and I don't know them, and the young lady taking the order didn't seem very chatty; brusque would probably be the word. So I didn't enquire

    Tonight's major motion picture premiere was Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), though I don't see how it can be part II when the first one wasn't part I; unless it's like an Elizabeth I thing, where they didn't know there'd be another (despite an almost endless sequence of Henry before that). Anyway, it's OK, but not as good as the first one by any stretch. I think that's because the premise of the first one, where an expert in guerrilla warfare finds himself fighting for his life in small town America, is really what made it; put the same character into Communist Vietnam fighting their army and Russian special forces and it stops being anything special, it's just what a guy like that does

    So it works OK as just another action movie, but that's all it is really.

    And after that I decided I was more in the mood for impressive visuals than anything new, so I just rewatched Ghost in the Shell (2017)

    And finally, onwards with The Americans: S4E9 The Day After (TV Episode 2016), in which they watch the eponymous film concerning the consequences of nuclear war. I still haven't watched that one, but I have it on DVD; some time soon, I'll have a special week of watching that, The War Game, Threads, and When the Wind Blows, as I have all of them and it would be good to bundle them all together and ruin one week rather than spreading them out and ruining lots

    Then S4E10 Munchkins (TV Episode 2016), which is a good enough episode but doesn't add anything to my schedule

    Goodnight all

    Not hard, but fairly constantly.

    And the blitzen thing is going apetulipe over France at the moment.

    It's a pretty good Chinese, as it goes. The usual place went through a seriously bad patch in the mid-to-late Noughties before Janet took over, and I used to go to the other one all the time then
