    Nice dinner ordered in from Duck & Noodle although they missed off my main. I snaffled enough from what was delivered to have a decent enough dinner

    Ents was G. I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra (2009) as HWMBO's youngest is keen on the new G. I. Joe movie coming out but hasn't seen what I think is the first one. That and he's obsessed with the replica sword I have from the film that I bought at comic con many years ago.

    Popped down to Sainsbury's, just for a change. I don't recall seeing a single person not wearing a mask, though there might have been one or two I didn't notice as I stopped looking after a few minutes, having been somewhat reassured by then that the general population aren't as fecking stupid as our government

    A bunch of things involving different teams all came together in a series of rushes during the day, with the result that my data pipeline thingy is now deployed to production

    It may even be working, but there's no way to tell until we get given access to the data in the place where it ends up, and the bloke who does that has already knocked off for the weekend

    Still, a most satisfactory conclusion to what has felt like a long week

    Today's mooted high of 24°C never happened. It's 20° at the moment, and not going to get any higher

    Lunch has been the last ( think) of the ham, pea and lentil soup with wholemeal bread

    It's 23 outside and 22.8 inside.

    All windows remain open for the foreseeable. If it rains enough tomorrow one or two may have to close

    It was down to 23.1°C in here about ninety minutes ago, so I shut the window (which had been open all night) before I had to put a jumper on.

    It's now up to 25.1°. Outside has just reached 20°, and the sky is overcast - no sun, which in any case has moved round to the end of the terrace by now. I have no idea where this extra 2° has come from

    Couple of police knocking on doors the other side of the road. Couldn't quite make out what they were saying. Sounded like a stolen verger.

    Makes a change from ambulances.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Hot. 25.6 deg in here.

    White sky.

    Wan sun.

    1011 mBar, 29.85 in Hg, 67% RH.

    Friday apparently.

    Smalls in the WM.

    Smalls out of the WM and into the TD.

    Shirts in the WM.

    And now, at 09:34, it's reached 25.7 deg.

    Smalls out of the TD and airing in the front bedroom.

    Shirts out of the WM and into the TD.

    Cottons in the WM.

    Shirts out of the TD and roughly iRoned & airing in the back bedroom.

    Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast (nonblue so far), bramble jelly sandwich on same, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    26.7 deg in here at 12:29.

    Entertainment: Engineering Disasters: the usual gas explosions caused by antique septic cast iron gas mains, what happens when the load breaks free in a 747 cargo aircraft on takeoff from Bagram in 2013 (hint: nothing good but at least they didn't suffer for long).

    27.4 deg at 15:06.

    Entertainment: Trucking Hell S3 E5: the first ep of S3 I've seen before. Rory not featured.

    Tea: Tesco breaded cod, some tinned fruit cocktail, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Discovering Sean Connery on Sky Arts, which served to remind me how much I didn't enjoy Umberto Eco's pretentious twaddle, though it seemed reasonably enjoyable 35 years ago.

    Michael Ball's Wonderful Wales on 5 at 20:00.

    Strewth it's a bit warm, Bruce.

    27.5 deg in here.

    I've just had what passes for a "cold" shower & I'm already sweating again.

    Entertainment: Elementary S6 E1 on Pick: I had no memory of this until the Bad Man turned up.

    I think I got to about E15 before the Sky Box packed up & I cancelled the Sky subscription since all I was watching was Elementary so it seemed a tad expensive for what it was.

    It's a glacial 26.3 deg in here now at 22:21.

    I agree. I have been tempted on many occasions to replace their fact with one that is far more interesting. Maybe when the diary runs out I will do 'Ladymuck's fact of the day' instead and pick things I like the look of

    But thank you for posting them. As they say, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it
