    I didn't get time to walk up to the high street to book in my eye test and, having discovered a hole in the knee of my leggings (which I made worse by poking my finger through it), I couldn't be bothered to change into less religious clothing to do a walk after I'd logged off.

    I will go up there tomorrow.

    Watched the tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh that the BBC aired yesterday. It was pleasant enough but not sure why it attracted so many column inches in the paper.

    Realised I'm on the home run of TCoOI having just passed the half way mark on S8.

    On the way out I took the recycling down with me and trundled forth the bin. It's only about half full, but they'll empty it anyway so it might as well go out

    Right, that's me done for the day

    I didn't even have time to go for my walk at lunchtime, as I've taken to doing on Thursdays, because there was too much going on

    But it's sunny now and up to 21°C so I'll go in a bit

    Only five more working days

    Nice and warm and sunny down at the coast. Loony lady 1 still not up to long walks but I just dump here at the cafe and stride off.

    Don't understand that lack of wind for wind turbines thing, it's always breezy by the sea and the loads of turbines on the horizon were zooming round.

    I don't have a problem with the principle; but there's somebody who urgently needs this available or they'll be working over the weekend. So the appropriate thing to do would be to say "I'll open a ticket so we remember to go back and tidy up this file when the pressure's eased a bit, but in the meantime, I'll approve this PR that has successfully passed the 411 unit tests and 465 functional tests we have in the system so they can get their work done"

    Lunch: Scotch broth and multiseed bread

    The nitpicking has begun, because letting the Delivery Manager get on with the shedload of work she has to do is obviously much less important than the risk of leaving an unused variable in a file that will be executed exactly once during a configuration step and could then be deleted without making any difference whatsoever

    As well as bringing down two large trees, to get to them they cleared some other hedging. We've now got an extra 3 metres of garden.

    (Both of those are real objections that he's raised in the past. The commented-out line of code one almost every time.)

    Heavy night's sleep, don't feel especially rested
    Funny, but seems little correlation between sleep time and tiredness. Got no sleep till gone 4 last night but don't feel as tired as I did Monday after a fair night's sleep.

    Anyway, off to coast shortly with loony lady 1. She'll be telling me, yet again, that my bad night was due to the full moon. I shall disagree and say it was the bedroom fairies.

    PS Just checked that the full moon was officially on Tuesday 12.45AM. She won't like FACTS!
