    Nice and warm and sunny down at the coast. Loony lady 1 still not up to long walks but I just dump here at the cafe and stride off.

    Don't understand that lack of wind for wind turbines thing, it's always breezy by the sea and the loads of turbines on the horizon were zooming round.

    I don't have a problem with the principle; but there's somebody who urgently needs this available or they'll be working over the weekend. So the appropriate thing to do would be to say "I'll open a ticket so we remember to go back and tidy up this file when the pressure's eased a bit, but in the meantime, I'll approve this PR that has successfully passed the 411 unit tests and 465 functional tests we have in the system so they can get their work done"

    Lunch: Scotch broth and multiseed bread

    The nitpicking has begun, because letting the Delivery Manager get on with the shedload of work she has to do is obviously much less important than the risk of leaving an unused variable in a file that will be executed exactly once during a configuration step and could then be deleted without making any difference whatsoever

    As well as bringing down two large trees, to get to them they cleared some other hedging. We've now got an extra 3 metres of garden.

    (Both of those are real objections that he's raised in the past. The commented-out line of code one almost every time.)

    Heavy night's sleep, don't feel especially rested
    Funny, but seems little correlation between sleep time and tiredness. Got no sleep till gone 4 last night but don't feel as tired as I did Monday after a fair night's sleep.

    Anyway, off to coast shortly with loony lady 1. She'll be telling me, yet again, that my bad night was due to the full moon. I shall disagree and say it was the bedroom fairies.

    PS Just checked that the full moon was officially on Tuesday 12.45AM. She won't like FACTS!

    My optician has emailed to say I'm due an eye test, so that's a good excuse for a walk up to the high street to make an appointment.

    Morning.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dire.

    Dreary.

    Drizzly.

    Misty.

    Sunless.

    Wet.

    Cool at 18.5 deg in here.

    1018 mBar, 30.06 in Hg, 763.5 Torr, 73% RH.

    Thursday.



    Stayed grey until after lunch and I stayed knackered about as long.

    Correlation is not causation.

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

    Entertainment: NZ Border Patrol: big yellow mofo spiders on heavy plant, assorted ingredients for making meth, some ketamine, and a credit card fraudster.

    Two trips to B&Q this afternoon: the first one being sans wallet.

    Caliper seems to be sticking on the Corolla which is irritating.

    Went to buy some more shelf supports from Buyology only to find it wasn't there any more.

    Tea: the last portion of chilli con carne with rice, some peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Blue sky again. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 22 expected and cloud cover increasing as the day progresses. Barometer is down to 1021 mBar.

    Heavy night's sleep, don't feel especially rested.

    Today's Kantar diary fact is:

    Morning denizens

    Bit of a high, hazy overcast at the moment, and apparently it'll continue cloudy for much of the day, maybe brightening up towards evening. Currently 13°C with 20° on the cards, and the barometers are dropping at 1011/1019mB

    I had a very good night's sleep; there were moderately weird dreams about something, but I can't remember what and they don't seem to have woken me, or not much
