    What a productive day!

    All items on the list ticked off. I just need to remember to make the bed before bedtime.

    I am pleased the landlady went for Farrow & Ball paints as it's so much easier to get a test pot that will actually match rather than try to figure out which one of a billion shades of "white" someone has chosen.

    It's clouded over quite a bit, with some ominous grey ones, but still no rain expected.

    Afternoon denizens

    Grey day out, and rain expected shortly, though it won't linger for more than a couple of hours. Currently 18°C which is as good as it gets, and the barometers are up a little at 1011/1019mB

    BH soon got switched off.

    Now finally getting up and the list so far comprises:
    • Strip bed and wash bed linen
    • Take down pictures, remove hooks, fix the walls
    • Take small electricals to the recycling point by Holland Park
    • Look into booking a "too big for the bin" collection from RBKC

    Morning.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Drizzly.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Cooler at 18.8 deg in here.

    1016 mBar, 30 in Hg, 762 Torr, 14.74 psi, (up from 1014 last night), 72% RH.

    Sunday.

    The "letter from America" substitute was in favour of more billionaires.

    Broadcasting House was as tedious as ever, liked the intro to one guest with distinct traces of "Dead Ringers" about it. .

    Walk (abbreviated) walked in sunshine. The umbrella worked well again.

    Met another escapee from Ye Newe Sloughe of Desponde who shared news of more escapees making a break for it.

    Not a happy ship from the sounds of it. . Well quelle surprise & all that. .

    Morning all

    Blue sky and fluff. Currently 16 degrees with a high of 22 later. No rain forecast. Barometer steady at 1019 mBar.

    Woke early so made a coffee and went back to bed. Listening to BH while thinking of all the stuff I have to do today.

    And very nice it was

    I finally felt like I had enough mental energy left at the end of the day to watch a film or two tonight, so I rewatched Blade Runner (1982). I've only ever seen "The Final Cut" and that was what I watched again, if it makes a difference. I think I've finally managed to grasp the whole story now

    Maybe I should watch the version with the voiceover some time? Not that bothered though, to be honest

    And then I rewatched The Mummy (2017). I think this version is OK, but apparently it didn't do well at the box office and the studio abandoned their plans for a series of remakes of their 1930s classics of the same ilk. No staying power, modern studios; they should have been "Well, it's a start, and we'll spend ten years getting better at it film by film"

    Goodnight all

    I ordered way too much food from Dishoom for dinner. On purpose, so I had leftovers for tomorrow.

    It was very nice.

    Watched TdF highlights. Now listening to You're Dead to Me on BBC Sounds.

    I'm really rather sleepy after today's activity and too much food so I'm not sure I'll reach the end of it in favour of a shower and an early night.

    Oh, and my left wrist hurts.

    After a 30 minute wait for the car (traffic issues, Pride apparently causing havoc with so many road closures), I went down to Chelsea and emptied my storage unit and officially closed my account. About £180 is due back having just paid the next month's bill.

    While I was loading the car, the previous user must have finally completed their trip in the app as the car wouldn't start. I finally twigged that I had to start my hire and all was well.

    I then went home, emptied the car into the flat. Had a sit down and a cuppa as it's a bit warm for manual labour.

    Had a panic that I only had an hour to get to Ealing and back so quickly repacked the car. Then remembered I had two hours so sat down again and finished the cuppa.

    Off I tootled to Ealing, battling my way through the traffic. Car unpacked and the bags / boxes I used were emptied so that I can reuse them.

    Plugged in the BT broadband kit (one of the "perks" of BT Business is that you get doubled-up kit so you have two concurrent connections for a short while). It was all working meaning BT had sorted things out well before the expected changed over date, which was a surprise.

    Battled my way back home, did an excellent impression of a Hermes delivery driver by chucking the empty boxes over the railings into my patio.

    Drove around the corner to park the car in its designated bay, dreading the thought of having to reverse park with minimal space on a heavily congested road. However the gods of something were benevolent today and the adjacent bays were empty, allowing me to just drive into the space.

    I ended my hire three minutes late and received a warning about my account being blocked if I repeatedly did that. Gotta love an algorithm that doesn't take into account the previous user having the car for an extra 30 minutes and considers allowing a bit of leeway.

    I forgot to look for the water meter which is somewhere out the front of the property but I've no idea where.

    Yes, though apparently I have to be careful about ibuprofen, being already on aspirin. Though it's never caused me any problems in the past

    But somehow the last bit of amoxicillin seems to have got things under control for the moment, so I'm hoping it stays that way until the dentists can get their act together

    Grey start out, currently 15°C and expected to reach 19°, and a good chance of drizzle (up to 80%) through much of the day. The barometers, however, are up a little at 1008/1016mB

    Last amoxicillin taken, but the infection clearly hasn't been dealt with so I'll have to try 111. It seems one of the emergency practices they refer you to has a surgery close by that's open weekends, so if the worst comes to the worst I'll just walk up there and see what they can do - another prescription for a stronger antibiotic, I assume
