    Worth saying we spent 20+ years shopping at Morrisons and we now go to Sainsburys instead.
    Probably due to being taken over by Septic scum.

    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.

    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, in Hg, Torr, 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.

    Big Garden Bird Watch this morning, then we’ll see what the rest of the day entails.

    Tonight's major motion picture premiere was Hotel Artemis (2018) in which Jodie Foster runs a secret hospital for criminals in riot-torn near-future Los Angeles. I thought it was pretty good

    Early night now, with the vague hope of Getting Things Done tomorrow

    Goodnight all

    Tea came from the kebab shop and was, therefore, a kebab with chips

    Free trees picked up at village tree giveaway. Got 2x crab apple and a blackthorn. Was supposed to be 2x blackthorn and 1 crabapple, but I think they handed me the wrong one. Free tree is a free tree, so I’m not complaining. Then dug out an elder that was growing at the side of the drive, which did my back in. I still need to dig out another elder, two hazels and a mock orange (we’ll keep the mock orange, but planted somewhere better). Then we can start clearing that bit of land to plant it up with more appropriate and manageable plants. Also put the 1/2 barrel in place for Mme Alfred Carriere, who will be climbing over the front of the house soon.

    I’m done now.

    Afternoon denizens

    Grey again, but no rain and fairly mild at 7°C; the barometers are trivially down at 1019/1027mB

    Just having a bit of wholemeal toast while watching something about Australian bats

    It wasn’t my usual Lidl and it seemed a bit more cramped, so I didn’t do a full peruse of The Middle.
