    Funny you should mention that…

    No risk of an extension; they got budget for an extra week which has, with my blessing, gone to the other guy, as I'm up for this other gig in a few weeks that requires security clearance. But I've just been asked if I could maybe find some time to do stuff over the weekend, as various things really need to be ready for later on Monday when some aspect of the handoff begins

    It was suggested that I could get the hours back from Friday, when all my side of things would be done and dusted. I pointed out that I'll already be done then, as Thursday is the end of the month - turned out the gaffer thought that's on Friday

    But my timesheet has spaces for Saturday and Sunday, so I'll get some stuff done over the weekend, which I shall book on a "day or part thereof" basis

    It's all fairly easy stuff anyway and should only take a couple of hours, but I know she'll be relieved if it's ready to roll first thing on Monday morning

    Walked up to the high street to visit the optician's and book an appointment for an eye test.

    Then popped into Wilko for Pink StuffTM and other random things.

    Then along to Waitrose for a mooch, coming out with gin, white port, biscuits and chocolate.

    It's a gorgeous, warm day out there. Verging on the 'hot' side.

    Just remembered that my jerrycan for the lawnmowers is almost empty. Not sure how good a look it will be driving to Tesco to fill it up.

    The security people spotted that there were a couple of outdated dependencies of a library used in our build process. As they're only used for that, they were willing to grant a temporary exemption until we can upgrade it, which isn't going to happen any time soon as it's too much hassle.

    For some reason I got dragged in to the discussion on Slack and asked what we could propose as a review date. I just said "My contract ends next Thursday, so any time after that"
