    "This design is very elegant, good quality." High praise indeed!

    I managed to take an early lunch break and get to Sainsbury's, so the shopping has been done

    Spotted several people with masks as I was leaving, but the overwhelming majority were spreading their filthy diseases

    Lunch was, as last week, a couple of sweet chilli chicken thighs from the lukewarm food counter

    Exactly. Proper Track & Trace.

    I have access to systems for pharma/med products that do it, but it was more for the things that you know you have had for a long time, but wonder how long.

    I'm guessing it's late 1990s, but is there a website that will give you the date a product was launched?

    Am now going to strip the bed and wash all that.

    A ciabatta roll has been baked. Maybe I'll remember to put a filling in it and eat it before 4pm today
    Bed stripped and load #1 is in the WM.

    Lunch eaten - the roll was filled with brie and tomato.

    Morning all
    Electricity went off yesterday afternoon and only came back on at midnight. Spent most of the evening lying on a swing bed in the garden watching the Perseids and took a few photos of the supermoon (shared on other social channels)

    CBS, etc, another hot one today.

    Om.

    Morning.

    Sunny.

    Dry.

    Warmish in here at 22.4 deg.

    CBS.

    1014.5 mBar, 29.958 in Hg, 760.937577 Torr, 14.714 psi, (untapped last night), 70% RH.

    Friday.

    Shirts in the WM.

    Order of works is changed this week in an experiment.

    Which posting has returned me to 26th November 2018 wherein I was referring to the slowness of some film called "Thunder Run" of which I have no recall whatsoever, whilst NF was watching "Alien (1979)" specifically not the Director's Cut.

    In addition it was Very Wet, with the Esteemed Customers opting not to bother walking down to Ye Newe Sloughe of Desponde in Ye Docks which was extremely sensible.

    What sort of idiot thinks that's a good place to put a university? Oh. Curly. That idiot.

    Shirts out of the WM & drying On The Line.

    Cottons in the WM.

    Cottons out of the WM.

    Shirts in off the line & roughly iRoned.

    Cottons drying on the line.

    Smalls in the WM.

    Smalls out of the WM.

    Smalls hanging on the line, including the ragged ones.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons oat & barley toast, bramble jelly & marmalade sanwiches, a non corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: was R4 programme which I found distasteful so it went click.

    Thing about Warner Brothers on Sky Arts.

    A film which is listed in the EPG as Monte Walsh (2003) but which appears to be McKenna's Gold.

    It starts with a song over the credits which is Never A Good Sign. . Ah, yes, Gregory Peck has just appeared so Monte Walsh it ain't.

    Towels in off the line resembling sandpaper, pillow cases iRoned.

    Bedsheets in the WM since it's drying so well.

    Bedsheets out of the WM & drying on the line.

    Smalls & remaining towels airing over the banisters.

    Bedsheets off the line and airing over the banisters.

    Tea: breaded haddock, some pear halves, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Salvage something or other: Rover P6 2200SC resto: nice job.

    Wheeler Dealers S11 E5 Maserati 3200 whatever that is: overcomplicated. What's wrong with a bowden cable? Bah fecking humbug.

    Morning all

    Clear blue sky. Currently 22 degrees with a high of 32 expected. Barometer down to 1019 mBar.

    Was rudely woken at 0530 by a bin lorry servicing the school over the road (aren't they shut for holidays? ). Managed to doze off but woke again at 0700. Decided to get up as I have much to do today and maybe doing it while it's not so hot is a good thing. Put a load in the WM, which I hear is just going onto its spin cycle - that'll be dry by lunchtime, I suspect.

    Disturbed sleep, some coughing, some mulling over stuff.
