    Lunch: last bit of the shepherd's pie from the other day. Really nice, that was, and works well for both mains and lunches; I must make it again soon

    Thanks to having mixed with a great variety of strange people from all areas of society over the years, I'm pretty good at maintaining my cover as a bloke who doesn't really mind what they get up to as long as they leave me and my stuff alone, while secretly tattling to the law

    The law, meanwhile, has responded. He pretty much admits there's not a huge amount that can be done until the gates are sorted out (which is why I included our councillor) but he and his colleagues will pay a bit more attention to the area for a while. It is so secluded that it's easy to forget it exists; I never even realised it was there and how big it is until I'd lived here for a month or so. But maybe a copper strolling through now and again will help make it a little less ideal for such activities

    It's been getting worse for months, but the final straw was when I caught a group of junkies taking too close an interest in the Orion last week and the dealer, having arrived and sorted them out, then stopped on his way back to assure me that he would "make sure" they didn't mess with my car or otherwise get up to anything back there. I'm sure he will, as he has a nice little setup being able to do handovers off the street and away from CCTV. But it so happens that I already pay for a police force to make sure of such things, and for the council to secure the area

    I looked in there but didn't find any other than those suitable for a baby which would probably bend out of shape on my toenails.

    Bought some rigger glovers to make up for the disappointment.

    Boots had some fearsome nail clippers but there's some of those in here "somewhere or other" (along with the actual nail scissors I've been using for years).

    I splashed out on these Japanese nail clippers a while back, and they're amazingly good: Takuminowaza High Quality Nail Clippers

    Popped out to post a letter and move my car one street along so it's closer to my flat. Just as I'd gotten out my car, someone moved theirs from directly outside my building. I was half tempted to move three spaces along the road but decided it was too much hassle.

    Fish fingers in the oven for my lunch time sarnie.

    Morning all
    Overcast and murky here, but a lot warmer than of late.

    Just been on a series of calls that have had me laughing...

    Them: That file you sent us is in the wrong format
    Me: It was based on the mapping format we agreed
    Them: Here's an example of a file in the correct mapping format
    Me: That file doesn't match your mapping format
    Them: Here's our mapping format. We highlighted the fields you need to send us, don't send the others
    Me: So am I following your mapping format, or just the highlighted fields?
    Them: Where did you get the mapping format from, it's wrong.
    Me: Hold on, you just said it was right. It's your mapping format, you're sharing your screen.
    Them: Oh, OK. I think we need to change the requirements...

    Now I've had to explain to 4 developers that their work was correct, but it needs to be re-done. (WTFH just keeps on billing )

    Morning denizens

    Had a terrible night's sleep, for some reason. Couldn't drop off for hours, then kept waking up again. Feel rubbish this morning as a result

    It's a mildish grey day, with the promised rain having failed to appear, at least in a noticeable form. Currently 11°C which is the high for the day, barometers are down a bit at 1003/1010mB, and there's a fair chance of rain tonight

    Morning all

    Dry, bright, clear sky to start that has since clouded over. Currently 11 degrees ('feels like' 9) and it might squeak up to 12 in the next hour or two. Rain expected overnight. Barometer down to 1003 mBar.

    Busy start to the day - haven't stopped since logging on at 0830! That's a whole two hours of work

    Today's Kantar diary facts are:
    The world's longest recorded rainbow recorded, lasting 8 hrs 58 mins in Taipei's Yangmingshan mountain range 2017

    Morning.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Drizzly.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Warmer out, chilly in here at 13.5 deg.

    1014 mBar, 29.94 in Hg, 760.56 Torr, 63% RH.

    Tuesday.

    Trip to the post office to buy TV Times which I note has gone up 20p for Xmas. Goodness knows how much the Radio Times is now the Kr Hu Germans own it.

    Followed by a trip to town to buy Yet More Socks from M&S to ensure I don't have to do this again for at least 2 years.

    Looked in Boots for nail scissors and couldn't find any.

    Wilko for 5kg of birdseed to keep the jackdaws happy, plus a Big Thermometer to hang outside the window so I can report the outside temperature as well.

    Walk (abbreviated due to the prior trek to town) walked in the drizzle.

    Lunch: Heinz leek & potato soup with Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt oat & barley bread (getting really stale), bramble jelly sandwich on same, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Oz customs thing: any 5.56 in this I wonder? The usual Indonesian scumbag fishermen killing sharks for their fins.

    The spare roll of roofing felt is on its way back to B&Q this afternoon.
