    After the usual Sunday New Zealand police stuff earlier, this evening's viewing started with The Repair Shop, of which I still have many, many episodes in hand

    And then a couple of old episodes 24 Hours in A&E

    Goodnight all

    TFBSZ.
    Got a few bits of (unpaid) work next week, having snaffled half a rhubarb crown from a friend, she wants me to come round and prune her apple tree. I also need to let a plumber in to the beach house for him to do a couple of repairs and check up on a tree surgeon who is doing work on the neighbour’s hedge at the beach house. This may also mean that me and The DogTW get to have a couple of walks on the beach now they’ve repaired the bridge from the car park.

    Anyone want to place a bet on how long/where I sleep tonight? I’m guessing 4 hours, mostly in the spare room.

    Tea has been a Pukka chicken and mushroom pie with chips, peas and gravy, which was very nice indeed

    And some jeans have been put through the wash

    Evening all

    Apologies for the tardiness.

    Today has been a mix of sunshine and showers with temps up 16 degrees.

    HWMBO and I have mooched around the hotel, having a relaxing day. We're now in the 'Local Pub' having a predinner beverage.

    Lunch has been a sausage bap with red sauce

    The sausages in question were Sainsbury's TTD generic pork ones. They're good enough as a standard kind of sausage

    Odd how that never seems to turn out well, yet it keeps happening

    Oh dear. Looks like I'll have to carry on going to the variously sized Sainsburyses then

    Other scum are available.

    Meanwhile on the 20th of April 2019 I'd found my copy of "Backtrace" whatever that is*, while NF was consuming a very late "breakfast" and a very early "lunch" in an attempt to avoid a portmanteau word from Septicland.

    *Turns out it's a Stallone epic with a score of 3.8 on imdb made by the same bunch involved in the dire Willis epics from the sound of it.

    Morning denizens

    Cloudy day but tending more towards cumulus so with a few more slightly blue gaps here and there, occasionally letting a little sunshine through. Mild enough for the time of year at 7°C and maybe reaching 8°, no rain expected, and the barometers are down a little at 1013/1021mB

    The main roads close at hand are closed to traffic at the moment because of some charity 5K run thing, though I think they reopen very soon

    Morning.

    Sunday

    Grey.

    Gloomy.

    Sunless.

    Drizzly.

    Slightly warmer in here at 10.8 deg, 10.5 deg in the kitchen, 9 deg in the leanto.

    1026 mBar, 30.29776 in Hg, 769.56 Torr, 14.8808 psi, (down from 1030 last night), 65% RH (GDR hair), 62% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 20th of April 2019 NF was watching "The long good friday" and "The Passenger" (in the small hours of course) whilst somewhat later I was doing the washing, and visiting Morrisons & Tesco on a Saturday since both were shut on Easter Sunday. Bargains were sourced from Morrisons. Oh how we miss them. Whereas WTFH & The Dog went for a Long Walk.

    I note that my erudite contributions to the UK vintage wireless site on the subject of "process" and "geometry" in data sheets from different manufacturers is yet to be moderated so it's still fecking invisible.

    I was intending to offer some stuff for sale there but I'm reconsidering this. .

    Especially since it's a) very fecking heavy and b) a long way from the Sais who'd have to drive here to get any of it since I don't think they make cardboard boxes able to take items weighing 114lbs.

    Lunch: baked potato with cheese and baked beans, a yellow corner yog, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of sunflower & pumpkin seed toast, 0.91*1.61 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: half of "Just a minute" sans Paul Merton.

    The Food Programme on the wonders of the effect of B**x*t on the UK food industry.

    TWTW: no doubt wall to wall crap about Zahawi much as Broadcasting House was, though I dozed through much of that.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey gloom with hints of some brightness somewhere.

    Pretty muddy now the frost has melted.

    Freecell score: 86%, running average 85%.

    Noticed some long tailed tits on the bird feeders earlier: made a change from the sparrows, chaffinches, and jackdaws with an occasional collar dove pecking at the leavings underneath.

    Tea: the first portion of chilli con carne from the new batch, with rice, some mango slices, a yog, 0.91*1.59 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: POTW.

    Motorway Patrol S5 E8. Little old lady on a mobility scooter thingie on the motorway. A couple attempting sexual congress on the hard shoulder. . Several shunts. A nutter towing a trailer with a boat sans any indicating lights.

    Vera S12 E1. Didn't find that one as satisfying as last week's.

    The Repair Shoppe: dressing table mirror & brush set rescued from a house fire, a metal canister that dropped supplies into occupied Europe back in the last global unpleasantness.

    My contributions to the vintage radio site have now appeared after undergoing moderation.
