    Morning all
    Before going out on our walk earlier, I could hear the rain beating down on the windows. Given the temperature, dress code was shorts and a t-shirt with wellies and stockman coat.
    If it had been any wetter, I'd have been calling a general election.
    By the time we got home, having surpassed 10,000 steps and 9.25km, I had time for a quick shower before work. Meanwhile Max thoroughly enjoyed the rain, running through fields of long grass like he was Theresa May.

    Some of my fine words are missing above:

    Morning.

    Tuesday apparently.

    Wet. Wet. With more wet incase the first wet wasn't wet enough.

    Cool in here at 17.2 deg, 18 deg in the kitchen, 17 deg in the leanto.

    1007 mBar, 29.7366 in Hg, 755.3 Torr, 14.6 psi, (down from 1009 last night), 78% RH (GDR hair), 72% RH (Lidl electric).

    Today's nightmare before waking was yet another involving a new job at some tuliphole somewhere or other. I woke up when some clown I was working with/for declared that I'd be working in Sussex for the next month, upon which I told him I don't drive any more. Curiously the chap walking through walls wasn't so problematic, strange to relate.

    Meanwhile on the 3rd of October 2019 there was discussion of iPlayer, expiry dates thereon, LM watched a sunrise from the tube (glass tunnels in that London?), while NF watched eps of "The Troubles" on iPlayer followed by more Breaking Bad, and WTFH was preparing for his op, while I had a poor night's sleep due to too much gardening the day before.

    Raining. This is set to continue until early afternoon and possibly return this evening. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 17 expected. Barometer down to 1014 mBar.

    The job and flat hunts continue.

    Morning denizens

    Having turned off my alarms for the Bank Holiday, I forgot to reenable then, so it's been a nice lie-in that's turned into a hasty start

    Grey start out; 13°C now, 19° later, rain starting shortly and continuing until the afternoon, barometers trivially down at 1000/1007mB

    Must dash!

    Tonight's viewing started with Trauma Room One - HT to ladymuck for the tip off

    And then another C5 thing, Police: Suspect No. 1 which also has a one in the title, but is otherwise unrelated

    Back to work tomorrow. Oh well, only four days…

    Goodnight all

    When I first moved here, there were ambulances outside quite often. But the old lady in the other half of my block died earlier this year, and I think the other frequent flier was an elderly gentleman from the adjacent block who died about a year ago. So we haven't had one in a while

    Bedding wash part I is on - mattress topper and pillow protectors

    As the same machine is required for drying, and the estate frowns upon anything as plebeian as a washing line disrupting its elegant views, I expect part II will have to wait until tomorrow

    Morning all

    Started off bright hut has clouded over somewhat. A bit of a breeze. Clouds threatening rain but that's not due for another couple of hours. Currently 17 degrees and that's the high for the day. Barometer up to 1016 mBar.

    First load of bed linen has been washed and is on the line. Hopefully it'll have a good blow about before the rain comes. Unlikely I'll get the second load out there.
