    Morning all

    Blue sky with wipsy fluff. It's currently 19 degrees with a high of 22 forecast. Cloud cover due to increase as the day progresses with a change of rain this evening (but it didn't materialise yesterday so who knows?). Barometer up to 1021 mBar.

    Busy morning. Had a few approaches via LinkedIn and where I've been found from scattering my CV around.

    Was due to view a flat but that's been postponed to Saturday because (not unreasonably) the current tenants are trying to pack up and move out. Trying to get a viewing of another property where the tenant won't let anyone in to view and there's just one pre-recorded video available. I'm sure it won't look at the things I'll want to look at.

    Realised when I switched to showing the new version that one bit I'd called out as a thing we'd improved had, in fact, not been improved

    So I smoothly continued talking about the other stuff and never mentioned it again, and nobody noticed

    I vaguely remember it being de-prioritised now

    About to demo some UI changes to such people of the department as choose to have a look - could be a few, could be lots. In a groundbreaking use of technology, I've checked out the previous release's Git tags on my local dev environment so I can show how it used to look. Then I can quickly check out the current release's tags (plural because there's an API server and a frontend server) while wittering about the obvious problems, reload the browser window I'm running the demo in, and show off all the new shininess

    Trivial enough, but I don't think most people here think of doing it that way. So such demos tend to start with a long-winded explanation of what the thing in question used to look like and why that was bad, which isn't really much use to anybody

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Sunnyish.

    Cool at 18.4 deg in here.

    <prepares for the discomfort of getting up to tap the barometer>

    1015 mBar, 29.973 in Hg, 761.3 Torr, 14.72 psi (up from 1011 last night), 73% RH.

    Wednesday apparently.

    Ow ow ow.

    Entertainment: "Lifechanging": thing on R4 about an undercover policeman involved in Operation Julie back in '76 / '77.

    Living in a transit van in the summer of '76 must have been fun, probably rather more so than living in it in the winter thereof.

    Shopping trip to Wilko & Tesco done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away.

    Knackered now but the back seems to have survived the experience.

    Lunch: scrambled egg & poached tomato on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast (uncrust version), bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches, a red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Y&Y: assorted courier frauds, benefit problems, child trust fund accounts. All good clean fun. .

    Morning denizens

    Sunny start out, with the temperature already at a scorching 15°C

    No more than 21° expected later though, so not too bad. Showers likely in the evening again, possibly going on into the night. Barometers are up again at 1012/1019mB

    In foul disease news: the antivirals seem to have started to do their work overnight. Although still a bit itchy here and there from time to time, overall levels of itchiness have been massively reduced. I'm hoping that the creation of new spots has now come to a halt, because there are a lot of them and frankly I could do without them. But if the drugs continue to do their thing, I assume it's just a matter of waiting for them to be cleared up by the body's repair mechanisms. Anyway, I had a decent night's sleep for the most part, for which relief much thanks

    Morning all

    This thread is currently showing as last updated by LM yesterday lunchtime.

    In other news, it's a bit misty out, but otherwise a pleasant walk was had.

    The car earlier was a Lancia sports car, though they were originally planning to do one of those old Rover 3500s before discovering it was too far gone.

    Then Italian bicycling happened and no more telly was seen until later: a couple more episodes of S9 of The Repair Shop

    I've noticed that iPlayer is showing S9E20 as watched for me even though I haven't got that far, so I suspect that for some reason it was released ahead of its time, which might explain why ladymuck reckoned she'd seen it before (if that was the episode in question).

    I don't think the itching is quite as bad as it was this time last night, but I still reckon I'll have to rely on how knackered I am after the minimal amount of sleep I got then to get to sleep any time soon tonight

    A bloke on Twitter who's had shingles reckoned the antivirals started making a difference for him after about twenty-four hours, so maybe things will start improving by lunchtime tomorrow. Can't come soon enough for me

    Oh, and the promised evening showers arrived pretty much on schedule, but seem to have moved on now.

    Goodnight all

    The crud coming off the plane trees is doing my eyes in. Horrible trees, surely they can't be native? A cursory Google implies they are some septic hybrid introduced to London in the 18/19thC when people thought they knew better.

    Anyway. Portuguese was tough but I was starting to warm up by the end. i will be popping in to see the tutor early next week to go over things I missed in a vain hope of catching up.

    Lot of that kind of thing about

    Tea has been sausages, bacon, fried egg, chips and beans. Very nice, and probably all five-a-day by some definition

    Yes, slip of the keyboard - as you can tell, I've been Googling a lot of stuff along the lines of "itchy rash"

    Walking, by the way, was accomplished by going to the chemist and back. Hasn't quite closed the green ring, but I'll top it off with mucking about in the kitchen and so on

    VAT return done. Some agents spoken to (of both the letting and the working variety).

    Now off to see if three weeks away from my Portuguese class has resulted in a total loss of what little I had learned.

    It's looks hot and sunny out so I've put a cardigan on.
