    Yet more Police Interceptors earlier, because I didn't have the energy to look for anything else - the C5 app was still on the series page, so I took the path of least resistance

    Going to be a warm night, so I think the bedroom window will be staying open. There's the first hint of a cooling breeze just starting to come through it, so it would be good if that keeps up

    Friday tomorrow!

    Somebody's scheduled a meeting with a supplier for 8am, which I've reluctantly agreed to join (to be fair, I think it was the bloke at the supplier who said he could only do that time) but I'll use that as an excuse for an early and long lunch break, and go and do the shopping

    Goodnight all

    Tea: oniony chicken casserole with chips and peas

    Sunny evening out, with just a few token wisps of cloud here and there

    Afternoon all

    Warm, dry, sunny. Occasional fluff. Currently 27 degrees with a high of 28 expected. Barometer steady at 1018 mBar.

    The morning was spent job hunting, looking at courses to do and laundry.

    I then thought I'd better download my final bill from BT and pop that into my accounts. On opening the file, I noticed that it was a normal full months' charge and not the £19 final bill I was expecting to pay. The online chat was useless and asked me to test if the line was still active. I asked if they would (a) return the equipment I sent back and (b) bail me out if I'm charged with breaking and entering as I no longer have access to the property. On phoning, in the hope of reaching someone with a brain cell, I spoke to someone in billing who said the charge was correct because the cease order was still open. On reaching order management, they said the order was still open and they'd raise a ticket for someone to see why. Apparently, there is no way of anyone knowing that an order is / is not completed successfully until a customer calls with a complaint.

    My Nectar points that were stolen in April are back!

    They haven't bothered to notify me, or not yet, but some time between a promotional email three days ago and one today, they've reappeared

    Reply received, which basically says "we've not been testing it properly" ("we" being a bunch of Mrs Sunak's staff, not those of us who have been asking them for the last 6 months to run tests, and they have been replying that the tests were successful)

    Morning.

    Thursday.

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    CBS.

    Coolish at 19.8 deg in here, 21.5 deg in the kitchen, 19 deg in the leanto.

    1014.5 mBar, 29.958 in Hg, 760.94 Torr, 14.71 psi, (unchanged), 73% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 23rd of October 2019 NF found it foggy, there was some lying Tory **** on the Today programme, a chap had brought his very own keyboard sanitiser kit to the library computer room (maybe he was prescient?), DaveB related tales of Things Found When Cleaning Keyboards, giving opportunity of comparing that with the stuff that fell out of the keyboards in Ye Olde Sloughe of Desponde, whereas NF was debating on what to have for lunch.


    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the searing heat. Or something.

    Lunch: baked spud etc.

    Entertainment: Bottom Line: private skools. VAT's that all about? <click>

    Cleaned the downstairs windows due to the afternoon ennui getting too strong.

    Entertainment: The Mentalist S1 E5, E6.

    Tea: soup etc.

    Entertainment: PM.

    NCIS S2 E7 "Call of Silence": one of the best eps they've made.

    The Mentalist S1 E7, E8.

    My sister's just been made a Fellow. Should I worry? Just askin' like.

    Maigret sets a trap S1 E1. I wonder which Maigret this is. We shall find out shortly. Hopefully not Mr Bean. My hopes were dashed, Mr Bean it is, Bob. .

    Doesn't look like I'll be watch S1 E2 of Better Call Saul. . I wonder why that is.

    Looks like my mate is on his last legs. Ho hum.

    Morning denizens

    Another sunny start, and it's also going to be a warm one! Already at 16°C with 25° expected by mid-afternoon, and it's not expected to dip below 16° tonight and will be even warmer tomorrow. The barometers are only up a little more though, at 1009/1016mB

    Telly was, unsurprisingly, an old Police Interceptors

    Tomorrow's the day when the chap has the meeting with the other chap that may be about putting this project out of our misery, or may just be a normal catch-up. I could do with a rest…

    Goodnight all

    Tea has been Barnsley chops (from Chatsworth) with chips, peas and gravy. Very nice

    Due to the State Opening of Parliament, all the government buildings in the vicinity of Whitehall were inside a strict security cordon today, meaning people from the department heading in to the office were being kettled in St. James' Park while ID was checked and so on. One of them was stood next to a bloke who announced to the police that he was the head of MI6, producing his government pass stating same, and he wanted to be let through immediately. The police politely told him to stay in line and wait his turn
