    Morning all I’ve been instructed to either juice or throw out the remaining apples.
    Now looking at stills for making calvados.

    The DogTW had half a paracetamol before going to bed last night, and that seems to have made her feel a bit better.

    Tonight's major motion picture night was Morgan Freeman Night, opening with Kiss the Girls (1997) which is a very good thriller

    Next up was Lucy (2014) which I continue to insist is scientifically ridiculous. But, as I often mutter at the usual suspects in the IMDb goofs sections, it's a movie, not a documentary

    And finally, Going in Style (2017). Also a movie not a documentary, and great fun

    Goodnight all

    Tea: rack of ribs and chips

    Accompanied by the rest of the Trucking Hell episode I started watching last week, including Rory's transformation into a woodsman

    The car earlier was a Porsche 996, and the gold diggers were the same as always

    Afternoon project meeting complete, the tide was out so it was a very pleasant walk.

    Sainsbury's has been gone to

    No masks in evidence other than mine

    And I filled the car up on the assumption that I'll be doing a lot of back-and-forthing as of Monday, around lunchtime - and also because it was almost empty

    Still very pricey, those decayed zooplankton

    For some reason the pay-at-pump thing wasn't working for the pump I was at (number 1, naturally) so I had to go in the shop to pay. It's been a good long while since I've been in there - possibly even pre-pandemic

    Morning denizens

    Sunny start out after some overnight showers. Still not as warm as we know it's capable of at 7°C, with an expected maximum of 10°. The barometers continue with their upward trend at 1004/1012mB

    It was 40° a few months ago! That's four times as much

    I want to go to Sainsbury's, but a rational analysis shows I don't need to - there's nothing I lack or will lack between now and Monday, particularly if I use up some of the stuff that's spent too long in the freezer. But I could do with filling the car up, as there'll be a fair bit of back-and-forthing to the new place if all goes well on Monday. It's expected to remain fine all day, so I'll put off making a decision until after lunch
