    It may have been all sunny and that, but it hasn't been very warm. I left the kitchen window open all afternoon and now it's really chilly in there

    Not sure why it never lets any cool air in when the place is baking hot in the summer

    never knew they existed until i moved south that loooong time ago, and was confronted by a ruffian with a brazier outside Finsbury Park underground on a cold November evening, hawking brown paper bags of them, roasted.

    Vague memories of trying them once when I was very, very young. I can't even remember if I liked them

    Wonderful dinner of sausages, bacon, fried egg, chips, and beans

    This evening's epic123 was "Collateral Damage" with Arnie and some other people.

    It was ok in a post 9/11 sort of way.

    <spoiler>All the bad guys bit the dust in the end.</spoiler>

    Collateral Damage (2002) - IMDb

    I appear to have just the one dvd.

    Or I haven't found the other 3 yet.

    Tea/dinner involved Heinz baked beans and a chunk of Morrisons pork pie with egg, which was acceptable if not particularly exciting.

    Mowed the 6 lawns for the last time, from now on it's just the two of my own.

    Fecking hard work since the grass was very long, but fortunately not wet.

    Ironically enough, got invited to Sunday dinner (i.e. at dinner time not lunch time) this evening.

    Unfortunately I eat Sunday lunch at lunch time & have done for most of my life & ain't changing at this late date.

    Twas a kind offer though.

    And it's getting up at stupid o'clock tomorrow once more.

    Only two weeks left in this term, then it's a couple or 3 weeks off for Easter, after which it's downhill all the way to retirement.

    I'm a bit worried in case that Blade Runner chap turns up.

    Used to roast them on the open fire back in the day when we still had chimneys and grates.

    Lovely.

    Yum.

    They went quite well in the oven of the range too, and tended not to get quite as incinerated as the ones roasted on the fire though they required more patience if you did them that way.

    Just discovered last week's purchasing disaster: Muller fruit corner turned out to be something rather unpleasant with little chocolate balls instead of fruit.

    Ho hum.

    It'll have to be eaten, nauseating as they are.
