    Morning all

    Cloudy but dry. Currently 9 degrees with a high of 18 expected. Sun is scheduled to break through the cloud this morning before disappearing back under its blanket later in the day. Barometer up to 1023 mBar.

    HWMBO arrives this afternoon as he decided on the spur of the moment on Friday to visit for a few days.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Grey.

    Vaguely wanly sunny.

    Cool in here at 16.1 deg, 17.5 in the kitchen, 14 deg in the leanto. Noticed last night that there's condensation in the leanto. It's that time of year again.

    1021 mBar, 30.16 in Hg, 766.04 Torr, 14.8 psi, (down from 1023 last night), 74% RH.

    Monday.

    Telex machine glowing nicely.

    Meanwhile back in 15th January 2019 NF was eating health food, whilst I was watching "The Eagle has landed(1975)" which I found acceptable even in a 4:3 transfer (at 50p per copy).

    Shopping trip to Boots & Morrisons done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

    Shopping trip to Lidl(tm) (the first in about 3 years IIRC) done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

    Bought two sets of SDS drill bits (defence in depth), a thing for profiling stuff, a thingie for doing door hinges, and a pair of elongated sidecutters.

    I managed to resist the temptation to buy More Spanners or the bench grinder polisher (which looked a bit feeble).

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed soya & linseed toasted crust, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Y&Y waffling on about the Hermes rebrand (spend all the money on the rebrand & keep the service crap), the TPS, dogs, and how dire it was to be stuck in a care home once the plague had struck (hums "The song thrush and the mountain ash" to himself).

    'Ere, there's a last verse to that I've never seen before where he sees the reflection of the song thrush and the mountain ash in the hospital window.

    Food waste now in the approved (20 years ago) food waste recycling containers which are very likely not the ones they use these days but there you go.

    Various jars washed out & added to the glass recycling.

    Noted that the various scruffy pots & pans thrown out by Strangelove Sis have returned inside next door. .

    Walk (abbreviated due to hedge cutting and an overwhelming feeling of I can't be arsed to go any further) walked.

    Quite a pleasant afternoon, it must be said.

    .

    In a fit of enthusiasm the bucket of semiconductors extracted from the skip at Wolsey Comcare was added to Ze List.

    It would appear that I have about 40 processors for a long obsolete telephone, and they're all OTP and completely useless.

    Alongside that there's roughly 1000 TC4001BP cmos chips. I've never used one 4001 much less a thousand of the damn things. At least they're DIL rather than SO14.

    Some hacking of the rose on the patio, it's self planted & has in its entire existence had exactly two flowers. I've warned it & warned it, but did it listen?

    There's also a reel of 5000 SOT23 somethings or other marked ADp. No idea WTF they are but I've got 5000 should the need arise. .

    Allegedly it's a BCW60D. Whatever that is.

    Tea: meatballs with rice n peas, some peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    I noticed that the corner yogs have gone up to £3.50 for 6 in Morrisons. Won't be paying that.

    Entertainment: Wheeler Dealers S13 E?: I think this one's a clip show..

    Abandoned Engineering S10 E?

    Oak Island Nutjobbery S9 E?

    Tonight's viewing started with an old episode of 24 Hours in A&E

    And then a more recent episode of The Repair Shop featuring a nice old Philips radio and a very fine elephant called Pookie

    And this afternoon, I got my mathematically generated Möbius strip rendering in 3D, both on my MacBook Air and on the iPad Pro

    Goodnight all

    Oops, looks like I forgot to post this ​​​​​​​

    The weather improved greatly, and after pressing 10l of apple juice, we went for a walk on the beach.

    Tea: a bowl of lamb scouse with a couple of thick ends of seedy bloomer. Very tasty, very filling, very warming (though it's not particularly cold)

    Finally remembered to launder the clothes that I mentioned needed laundering a couple of days ago.

    Used the supplies I brought yesterday to attempt to fix the grass.

    Then read an article about whether people in the southern parts of the UK should have lawns anyway.

    Now watching highlights of another car crash interview.
