    Trying to tell you something, perhaps?

    It's wrong to ascribe malice when simple incompetence is more understandable.

    Managed to get my hair cut after a mere hour and a half wait.

    Also realised that I'd been a customer there for 50 years.

    Bought the mandatory 2nd hand dvds before wandering to Morrisons and thence back home.

    It then started picking with rain but it's stopped now.


    This chap has turned up on The Archers recently.

    Mr Pointy hasn't though.

    Lunch turned out to be a five egg scramble.

    The eggs were BBE January.

    Though 2018.

    It was ok, if a little odd.

    The added Worcester sauce and chilli spiced it up a bit.

    Nice lunch of an M&S crispy breaded chicken fillet, on a wholemeal bap with lashings of tomato ketchup

    Trying to decide whether to bother going shopping. It seems like a lot of hassle, but on the other hand it's likely to rain tomorrow, so…

    I came across a couple of letters to the people who live at a similar, but different, address a couple of miles distant. Usually I drop these off when I'm going shopping, as it's barely even a detour to go there.

    These, however, arrived last December. Shortly after that, of course, I was off to hospital, and I'd forgotten all about them

    And something else came for them a couple of weeks ago, which I've forgotten to take with me whenever I've been down that way.

    So I finally got around to making a proper label template that precisely fits the pack of 21-per-A4-sheet labels I bought from Staples years ago in a these-might-come-in-handy spirit, and printed off a sheet of labels requesting redirection to their actual address rather than ours. Now their severely-to-moderately delayed items are safely in the pillar box on the corner, and no longer my problem.

    I'm not sure why I didn't think of doing this before as it's loads easier

    Got 45 minutes to kill at Edinburgh Waverley waiting for my train.

    So I’ve gone a nearby pub - £5.40 for a pint

    In other news Microsoft are asking for over £1000 as the company has qualified to be silver competency ISV.

    Given that the software changes the internals of their powerapps systems I will be paying for the endorsement - as it says they are happy with the way I change things

    Not sure what to do with the free msdn licenses I now own and don’t need

    Tea was lentil <pfffft> soup.

    In fact it was 3 different batches, which, when mixed together before meeting the poppity ping, proved to be quite toothsome, the overwhelming parsnip gone off of one mixing with the overwhelming saltiness of the 2nd, and the combination going quite well with the 3rd.

    Sounds like it might work quite well.

    Followed, as is only right and proper, by Bird's custard augmented with stewed blackberries.

    Which was even more toothsome but is a right pain in the molar as I attempt to remove a recalcitrant seed.

    This afternoon's holiday endeavour was the shifting of the worktop over the fridge upwards by about an inch, while the cupboard by the side of the fridge was shifted left by an inch and threequarters.

    Which reminds me I haven't put the workbench away yet.

    While I was at it, I took the opportunity to raise the shelf in the cupboard by 2 3/4" so more whisky bottles could fit under it.

    I very rarely drink whisky which is why there's so many bottles of single malts in there, along with an ancient bottle of White Horse, and a bottle of brandy in a Crofts' sherry box.
