    My nice new pillows have now been encased in their protectors and pillow cases, so the bed is all ready for when I need it

    And before that, tea was a steak & caramelised onion burger in a toasted sesame bun with sweet chilli sauce, accompanied by chips

    So everything is done and dusted at last, and I can finally relax

    The Sainsbury's delivery arrived! All put away and cooking has commenced

    I didn't need very much stuff, but at least spiralling inflation makes it easier to hit the £40 figure that gets you £1 delivery (if you take your chances on unpopular timeslots). And it's always easy to bump it up with stuff that keeps for a while, like wine and beer

    There was a nice rainbow outside about twenty minutes ago

    Sainsbury's Delivery Wait begins in a minute or so… hope they're here soon, I'm getting quite peckish

    Yes, the itching is basically a thing of the past now, and I'm not feeling anything like as run down today

    Still covered in sores that are, in the case of the larger ones, developing impressive scabs. So I'm not ready for my close-up, Mr. de Mille

    The day not being particularly busy, I found time to get the mundane laundry on for a Quick Wash in the afternoon

    Henry did a good job of vacuuming the mattress, and also getting rid of the accumulation of dust under the bed, in the nooks and crannies of the bed frame, and so on. And then he sorted out the living room carpet (where accessible) too.

    And the bed has just been re-made, except for the new pillows (and new pillow protectors) which I've only just retrieved from their packaging and have left to air for a bit

    Lunch: roast pork (out of the freezer) in a wholemeal bap with apple sauce

    Only 16°C out according to official sources, yet it seems warm enough for me to have the windows open front and back and a nice breeze wafting through the place

    Aaargh! Now I'm being asked by the person who is supposed to collect the item if it's heavy. I put in the listing "it's about 18kg so bear that in mind if collecting on foot".

    I agree a collection day with the first person to ask for the item I've listed. It's a couple of days away, no issue for me. Someone else expresses an interest and I say that it's due to be collected on x day but if they don't turn up, they get next dibs. That person then says "but I can collect sooner" like I'm just going to tell the first person to naff off because of a quicker collection. I guess some people are like that but I'm not one of them.

    Morning all

    Dull and overcast this morning. Looks like some spots of rain trying to get through the scaffolding (yes, it's still there). Currently 14 degrees with a high of 17 expected. Rain forecast for much of the day it would seem. Barometer up a tiny bit to 1018 mBar.

    Waiting to hear back on three jobs, including the one I was supposed to start on Monday. Also need to nag many letting agents who don't respond when you send enquiries in to view properties.

    Bed has been stripped and the first load of linen is in the WM.

    Other than that it did seem to come to bits in a rather more logical way than the previous iterations. Hasn't even got that little rubber bypass hose between the head & the block.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Sunless.

    Cool at 18 deg.

    Smalls in the WM.

    I think I'll stick with the paracetamol and ibuprofen, thanks all the same. .

    Smalls out of the WM & into the TD.

    Shirts in the WM.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the chilly semigale and grey gloom.

    Smalls out of the TD and airing upstairs.

    Shirts out of the WM and into the TD.

    Cottons in the WM.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toasted crust, bramble jelly and marmalade sandwiches on same, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Shirts roughly iRoned & airing upstairs.

    TWAO.

    Deep fake thing: bring out your undead dead. Or something.

    Would have helped if I'd put the roller towel & tea towels in with the cottons whilst I was doing it, however the discomfort of carting the washing basket out to the salting house somehow took my mind off it. That's my theory & I'm sticking to it. .

    They'll be done soon: in the WM, out of the WM, into the TD, out of the TD & the tea towels duly iRoned.

    Freecell score: from a low of 50% finally crawled up to 73% at which point it was time to make tea.
