    ^^ I believe there's a new series of Britain's Busiest Airport on ITV IIRC too.

    Ents has been a listen to Lucy Worsley's Lady Killers on BBC Sounds.

    Ribs and chips for tea

    And then a bit of coffee & walnut cake for good measure

    All accompanied by The Airport on iPlayer, about Heathrow getting back to its concept of normal, featuring that chap Jeremy who was on the airport programme years ago.

    The car earlier was a Corvette, though a more recent model than the one they did the other week; and then the bicycling began so I started reading R. V. Jones' Most Secret War, which I've somehow never got around to reading in full (though I remember it on the TV in the Seventies)

    The recycling bin has been trundled forth

    I didn't bother taking mine down, other than some Amazon packaging that was easy to carry and just topped it off nicely. The bag is only about half full, and now it's contained by the old bin it doesn't take up much space.

    On mulling further, I wonder if the other person was offered the work but refused and so they went for the backup, hence why it took a while, but obviously it's easier to blame me for my impatience.

    Two fire engines went up the side road over the way not long ago. Then a police car went shooting up there a few minutes ago; and now, two more fire engines have gone up there

    And another police car right now

    I'm guessing a cannabis farm's caught fire

    I think I've picked the right role if the consultancy is going to get shirty and play tricks like that. They never told me there was more than one person being considered for the gig whereas I knew client A was only going to see more people if I said no.

    They seem to think we're sitting there pining for their call, like a fisherman's wife waiting for him to return from the sea

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    My debugging talk went OK, I think. Not sure I'll bother doing one of those again; you spend half the time thinking "They probably know all this" and the rest thinking "They probably don't need to know this bit"

    I also managed to do a bedding wash, though

    And lunch, late because I was still working on my React map demo so didn't have time for it until after the talk, was prosciutto in a white cob with a bag of crisps

    Oh and this afternoon's flat viewing was postponed and will now happen tomorrow. The tenant was reticent to let anyone in then the landlord said they were doing work on the property.

    Oh the joys.

    Afternoon all

    Overcast but the sun is trying to make an effort. Currently 17 degrees with a high of 21 later. Barometer up to 1021 mBar.

    Busy morning. I had a pre-meeting then a potential client meeting then a post-meeting. Waiting to hear if an offer will be made. In the meantime, some laundry was done and hung out. Then many calls with letting agents to book in more viewings. Off out this afternoon over Hammersmith way. I think this one may be a bit small for all my tat.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Chilly at 17.5 deg in here.

    1019 mBar, in Hg, Torr, psi, (up from 1016 last night), 73% RH.

    Thursday.

    The recycling engineers made their merry way along the road without waking me. Which was nice.

    This morning's dreams seemed to involve something about NCIS. Which made a change from the trauma of copying CP/M diskettes.

    Entertainment: Discovering Richard Attenborough (the remaining 40 minutes).

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey gloom.

    Lunch: baked potato with beans and cheese, a red corner yog, bramble sandwich, marmalade on toasted sunflower & pumpkin seed, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Y&Y Sliced bread: electric toothbrushes. £500 for a toothbrush? Don't tell Zeity.

    TWAO.

    Freecell score: 93%, running average 85% (84.598%).

    Entertainment: Discovering John Hurt.

    Tea: chilli con carne & rice, some pear halves, a yog (or two), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Farscape S2 E18 "A Clockwork Nebari": the mind cleanse one with added plague.

    Wheeler Dearlers: 2002 Corvette Z06. Yank tank. Clutch change: remove rear suspension. You fecking what? That even dumber than Yesterday's Hose From Hell in its idiocy.

    Faulty relay in the EBCM (electronic brake control module). Gosh. You can read the error codes sitting comfortably in the car.

    Other good news: BBC4 online only. You really couldn't make this tulip up. Ah, it's been an "archive" channel for the last couple of years anyway. Which explains why there's nothing new to watch on it.

    More UFO bollox on Blaze though "watching" is probably not quite wot I did, seeing as I spent a fair amount of time doing a quiz on 1960s tv programmes. Got 43 out of 50 right.

    Sky Arts: The Movies: the 2ks to today. More films I've probably never heard of.

    Slept in, which was very nice. Overcast out, but a pleasant morning none the less.
