    Typical Scottish response. Granding themselves up to be better Celts than they really are.

    it still stereotypes Irish as drunkards, - so - typical english racism.

    Some selfish gits have booked our preferred venue for the wake. Apparently it's not on to have a wedding party happening at the same time.

    Lunch was chicken, tomato and coleslaw in a freshly baked ciabatta style bun.

    Lunch has been a smoked pancetta omelette, which was very tasty

    After some gaps in the cloud made a brief appearance late morning, it's now gone back to solid grey and continuous light drizzle

    I know! Hurrah for Freelancer Financials! (or Contractor Mortgages, they're the same people)

    The thing that amazes me is that they approved it in full knowledge that my current contract only has a couple of weeks left to run and I don't have anything else lined up yet

    The adviser said it was best to just get the application in straight away as that would secure the rate for a month, then if they came back demanding more certainty about the future I'd at least be safe from rate rises, but he thought it would be OK anyway. And so it proved!

    It's raining. An hour earlier than forecast but I'll allow it.

    Looking at the monthly repayments made me wince. But not as much, I think, as I would have done if the application had been made next week rather than last

    Morning all

    Cloudy with flecks of grey interspersed with bits of blue sky. Currently 10 degrees with a high of 14 expected. A shower is forecast for lunchtime. Barometer up a squeak to 1001 mBar.

    Went to bed later than usual after bin trundling (general waste and food waste that wasn't collected last week) and watching tat on TV. Then discovered the batteries in my Tado radiator thermostat had died and I needed to find replacements or my bedroom would have been very cold this morning. Took a while to get to sleep, tired this morning.

    A mix of cloud and sunshine here.
    Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of my mum's death. My dad was annoyed the day before when I mentioned it, as he had forgotten. When I spoke to him yesterday he made sure to tell me that he had gone to visit her grave.
