    Morning all

    Raining. Windy. Currently 9 degrees ('feels like' 7) with a high of 12 expected. Rain due to continue until lunchtime, turning intermittent and possibly even stopping early evening. Barometer down to 1013 mBar.

    Yea olde jalopy has been dropped off at the garage to see if they can fathom why it's taken to misting up. My brother reckons it could be the condenser or the pump for the air conditioning system.

    Filthy out, but still managed a 5km walk. Now stripped down and in my schlompers, hoping there isn't a stand up call later.

    Gloomy grey rainy start today. Currently 8°C and aiming for 12°, with he barometers sharply down to 994/1002mB

    The lurgy seems to have finally resolved itself into a cold of some kind, judging by my rather bunged-up nose

    Tonight's plod-related viewing was To Catch a Copper E3, in which yet more dodgy coppers don't seem to get punished as much as they deserve

    And then part one of The Space Shuttle That Fell to Earth about the loss of Columbia

    Whatever lurgy seemed to be preying on me last week but then receded has decided to return, possibly with a vengeance; temperature's rising, and I've had a stinking headache for much of the day. I just hope it decides it can't be bothered after all and moves on

    Goodnight all

    Lunch earlier was sardine toasties

    And just now, inspired by yesterdays long MOT-related treks: walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    TBH I cheated by leaving the app running on my watch after I got home and started sorting stuff out in the kitchen until it closed the ring

    But a pleasant enough walk. I went over to the nearby road that I moved to about 39 years ago, which is another of those roads to nowhere - anywhere you want to go that isn't actually on it is easier to get to by other routes.

    A week or so after I'd moved there, some friends who lived nearby came over to visit. They'd remembered the number incorrectly and first went to a house near the top of the road. "This is a very nice place he's found himself" they were saying to each other as they walked up the drive and, finding the front door unlocked, walked in to an impressive hallway. A gentleman emerged from a nearby room and politely asked if he could help them, and they explained that they were looking for me, who'd just moved in to one of the bedsits. He smiled and said that he thought they must have the wrong house - because he was the Bishop of Leicester, and he hadn't felt the need to start letting out rooms just yet

    Overcast. Dry. A bit of a breeze. Currently 8 degrees with a high of 13 expected. Rain expected late evening / overnight. Barometer steady at 1028 mBar.

    I managed about half a day yesterday then had a lie down, then gave up and sat on the sofa under a blanket.

    This morning I felt moderately ok but am now starting to feel a bit rough again. I suppose expecting to feel better after three days was a bit unreasonable.

    *He's not alone there, coz I am on streetview too.

    The drizzle started as I thought to go for a walk so I didn't bother.

    Big walk this morning due to Max wanting to head out early, and it appears he wasn't the only dog who did that as we met a couple of other walkers half an hour earlier than we normally would.
    Anyway, >6km covered by me and by the looks of things we had the best part of the day for it, as a mist is descending now.

    Grey start again, though more in the overcast way. No sign of rain, though there's a 20% chance of drizzle at teatime. Only 7°C to start but hitting 12° by teatime, and the barometers are barely down at 1013/1021mB. Going to be windy though, it seems

    No more telly after the chocolate factory, but I read more of The Darkroom

    I'm wondering how my lower limbs will feel tomorrow. They aren't used to walking about four miles in a day. I need to start exercising again

    Goodnight all

    Was watching “The Way” earlier, and they were in a cafe near the start. It was a cafe used in another BBC/S4C drama in the last couple of years, but can’t remember which one.

    It's home again now. They didn't do anything with the wing, because I'd told them it wasn't urgent and it probably took them a while to do the other bits. They farm out bodywork stuff to the bloke in the adjacent units anyway, so I'd be better off talking to him directly. All running a bit smoother now though, and the traffic on the way back wasn't as bad as I expected
