    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    Fairly bland grey day out there; not warm, but no biting wind or anything of that kind either

    There was a car broken down at the minor junction just over the "hill", with the woman who had presumably been driving it standing nearby looking at her phone on the regular. I thought I spotted a damp patch spreading downhill in front of it, though the road was fairly damp anyway, so I assumed it was a radiator problem. They were still there when I came back, this time approaching from the rear, and as I passed I noticed a strong smell of petrol. So I think it may be a bit more complicated than a radiator hose, and she'd be well advised to keep an eye out for anybody approaching with a fag on

    Lunch was some left over soup from whatever HWMBO ordered on Sunday evening. It was very nice.

    Afternoon snack was some fig rolls.

    Lunch: turkey soup with multiseed bread. Nice and peppery

    Morning denizens

    The fog had passed overnight leading to another sunny morning. Cloud's due soon though, leading to a rise from 4°C to 6°; barometers remain high at 1029/1037mB

    Dryish.

    Cold at 12.2 deg in here.

    1035 mBar, 30.59 in Hg, 777.06 Torr, 15.03 psi, 62% RH.

    Was there anything that Nixon didn't feck up? Just askin' like.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey chilly rawness of the morning.

    Lunch: leek & potato soup, a red corner yog, bramble jelly sandwich on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Roswell S3 E15 "Who died & made you king?": well Max did as it happens, but then he was undead again & wanted his kingly powers back. (spoiler alert).

    Roswell S3 E16 "Crash" wherein a jet collides with a UFO, bringing down both and TPTB decide that the jet pilot and his daughter need to die so the aliens decide they're not having that & fix it.

    Two eps to go (and a commentary at a guess). It's a pity they didn't get a chance to round it off properly but at least it has a sort of an ending.

    Morning all

    Blue sky and dry. Chilly at -1 degrees with a high of 6 expected. Barometer up to 1036 mBar.

    Already a busy morning at the coal face. The migration I was expecting to have completed while I was away was postponed because the sheer volume of data was taking much longer than expected to reconcile.

    Morning all
    S'murky out, but 4oC, so more pleasant on the walk.

    Did a bit of binge watching last night - Hidden Assets (on iPlayer). Didn't manage the final episode which we've saved for tonight. Another one of those dual country crime dramas, this time Belgium & Ireland.

    Yet another new Traffic Cops watched whilst dining

    Then S1E1 of Gomorrah, an Italian thing about organised crime in Naples, Il clan dei Savastano (TV Episode 2014). Seems like it might be OK, though perhaps lacking the humorous aspects that helped to leaven the violence in The Sopranos

    And finally, a Swedish crime thing: Blå ögon (TV Series 2014–2015) (Blue Eyes in English), being set in the world of Swedish politics but with added disappearances and murders and stuff. Judging by this first episode, it's a bit run of the mill and lacking the panache of things like Bron/Broen, but I'll see how it goes

    It's pretty foggy out now, and cold with it

    Goodnight all

    I know.

    Earlier I passed small children staring at it in wonder.

    Quite pleasant out in terms of blue sky and sunset and that, but it feels colder than the supposed 7°C even though there's no wind. But it was OK once I got in the swing of it

    A small group of the local derelicts had for some reason congregated around the porch of a derelict care home about a mile away. One of them who I think I've chased out of our back yard more than once called out a cheery "Hiya!" to me as I went by. Nice to be so widely recognised in the community, I suppose
