    In mooching about the Screwfix website to determine what they had in stock, I ended up realising that my order was going to be more substantial than just an empty (easy to carry) tool box so I've gone for the delivery option and added in loads of other stuff for all the little jobs I've been thinking of doing.

    Morning all

    Dull and cloudy but dry and warm. Currently 18 degrees with a forecast high of 21 expected. Barometer down to 1016 mBar.

    Decided to have a look at my little tool box and decide what can be rescued as it's been stored in the outside shed, subject to rain. My small axe (no idea why I have one) is properly rusted but the mallet and concrete chisel (ditto) are ok. The smaller tools need a bit of a clean up and will be fine. Need to find a more durable, waterproof tool box so I feel a walk up to the high street to screwfix is in order.

    Morning.

    Grey. Very very very grey.

    Misty.

    Sunless.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Dire.

    Drizzly.

    Cooler at 18.8 deg in here.

    1011 mBar, 29.85 in Hg, 758.3 Torr, 73% RH.

    Saturday.

    Woke at 04:30 and turned the wireless on so the doze was accompanied by all sorts of things until about half past eight, none of which I can remember, though a bit of "Farming Today" and the Shipping Forecast seem to have registered.

    I suspect it stayed switched on because the voices of the presenters didn't grate like nails down a chalk board today.

    Wireless is now firmly switched off since I can't abide the gabbling idiots on a Saturday morning.

    I do rather miss John Peel's "Home Truths" of yore.

    That was worth listening to.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked.

    It's a bit close out there.

    Still grey & very humid.

    Lunch: Heinz baked beans on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly x 1.2 on same, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    I see we are shortly to be blessed with Fluoridation.

    Ho hum.

    No premieres tonight, only rewatches, starting with Crazy Rich Asians (2018) which is good fun even if it isn't that deep

    Then Deepwater Horizon (2016) which is good but "fun" would probably be the wrong word for an exploding oil rig whatever the depth

    And finally Deep Cover (1992) which is one of those that's very good for its time, but nowadays has you thinking "they wouldn't do that" a lot - mainly because modern films wouldn't have them doing that, of course, because none of us know what undercover cops in California actually do, then or now

    Goodnight all

    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.
