    After the usual Sunday New Zealand police stuff earlier, this evening's main viewing has been the latest episode of Surgeons on iPlayer, followed by the latest 24 Hours in A&E on… ah, I see now why they don't call it 4Player

    And now I have taken to my bed, where I shall read my book for a while before getting to sleep

    Goodnight all

    Just baked some sausage rolls. The oven here does a very good job of them

    Hmm. The programme was about moving a Deltic from the Great Central Railway to a heritage railway in Derbyshire. Now we're on to the next programme, which is about moving a (different) Deltic from a (different) heritage railway in Derbyshire to the Great Central Railway. They really should make their minds up

    Breakfast, or possibly lunch: a couple of croissants with strawberry jam

    Afternoon denizens

    Bright sunny day out with just some very high wispy layers of cloud here and there. Not as warm at 6°C, and tonight it's expected to dip below freezing for the first time in a while. The barometers are ever higher though, at 1034/1042mB

    The gas engineers over the road started up around 7am this morning, mainly sounded like getting equipment in place. Then went off for a couple of hours' tea break, came back and did a bit for an hour and are now getting started again.

    Morning all

    Bright and sunny, barely a wisp in the sky. Currently 6 degrees ('feels like' 4) with a high of 8 forecast. Barometer is up to 1042 mBar.

    Kurios at the Royal Albert Hall yesterday was very entertaining. I never know what's going on in a typical Cirque du Soliel performance but they are genuine "switch off and enjoy the spectacle" events.

    My favourite of the three: it was the first one I saw in the cinema in those long ago days.

    Morning.

    Sunday.

    Sunny.

    Blue sky.

    Dry.

    Colder in here at 11.7 deg, 11.5 deg in the kitchen, 8 deg in the leanto.

    Windows covered in condensation upstairs. The leanto roof is dripping.

    1044 mBar 30.829 in Hg 783.06 Torr 15.1419 psi (up from 1038 last night ), 69% RH (GDR hair), 67% (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 23rd of April 2019 Countdown was Counting Down apparently.

    Walk (abbreviated due to the ongoingly ongoing works and mud) walked in the bright sunshine.

    Had to take my scarf off to avoid overheating.

    Lunch: baked potato with cheese and baked beans, a yog (non corner), bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast, 0.91*1.55 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: TWTW. Redwood, aka The Man From Mars who mimed the Welsh National Anthem badly, was on spouting praise for Truss. WTF? I'll have some of what he's taking please nursie.

    Shopping trip to Morrisons done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away. A nice afternoon for it.

    Entertainment: Mega Disasters on Blaze: Alien Infections: (from comets and Mars as it transpires). Plainly preplague by the sounds of it. . Oh yes: 2007. .

    Breaking Mysterious: The Watchers, with Jimmy Church. More Blaze paranoia. The CIA/NSA are listening. They're even reading this as I type. Who's that knocking on the door?

    Aliens: area 51 area 52 and all that bollox: watched it before.

    Tea: some soup or other with rice, red corner yog (there being no other variety than other red corner yogs), some peach slices, 0.91*1.57 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Lost: not the island moving about but the lost boxcar of gold in Lake Michigan, the lost nuke in Savannah, and something else I wasn't innerested enough to bother with, watched it before.

    Leg Ends: big foot, the Chicago based Plan A for the Kennedy assassination.

    Vera S12 E2 "for the grace of God".

    The Repaire Shoppe: Guitar (bought to punish his ma), regulator clock from Zanzibar,

    Ad then a rewatch of Elysium (2013) for some cracking psychopathic Afrikaner action

    Goodnight all
