    In other news, I've got to the module testing stage with the intermodulation thing.

    The reason the oscillator wouldn't is because I'd left a capacitor out.

    I've now got a hole in my hand from the trim tool while frantically turning the two pots from one end to the other while it never had a chance of working.

    Ho hum.

    Well the rest of them work as far as I can test without a handful of missing bits.

    Which is relatively good.

    Note to self: when these cheapo digital voltmeters are showing the "Low Bat" sign, the accuracy goes to pot and not in a good way.

    When it says the 15V rail is measuring 19V you know something is wrong.

    Never had that particular foible with AVO 8s.

    I've felt like that all week

    Initial theory was hangover from going out on Saturday, but once it got too long for that I concluded it might be the weather. Then, with a little research having seen something on Twitter, I started wondering if it might be a response to grass pollen, which is apparently profuse around this time of year.

    I'm going to pop into the chemist's (when I remember and can be bothered to go) and see if they've got any hay fever stuff that I can take with all the other pills I'm burdened with and which won't turn me into a zombie

    Lidl were selling tablets at 99p the other day.

    Same stuff from the same manufacturer that I buy for £1.80 from Morrisons.

    Though you'd better consult someone other than the til operator before taking such stuff.

    The grass is beginning to do its thing now but the peak will be in a week or two.

    It's been so warm and dry that it's ahead of itself.

    When it's really bad I take one kind of one a day in the morning and a different kind of one a day in the evening.

    Apparently it's ok to do that with the two I use.

    I'd never really thought about the interaction problem until I had a cold a few years ago and went to get those Day & Night tablets, as they were the only ones that ever seemed to do me any good. The pharmacist told me I couldn't take them because of one of the heart things

    Couple of dressing gowns washed: the one with a fleecy lining and a hood, suitable for winter wear, and one of the lighter ones, better for warmer weather.

    And I'm making chicken stock in the Instant Pot following the same method as last time, as that worked out exceptionally well

    Is it too early for...? Unfortunately yes, I have to drive at the far side. So lounging around on cranberry juice and sandwiches. Maybe have a glass on the plane, or maybe have a glass here shortly.

    I've still got a packet of those antihistamines that kill you stone dead if you take them with grapefruit juice.

    Just in case I ever feel really al.
