    Afternoon denizens

    There's been sunny spells but it's clouding over now. Likely to be some showers soon, apparently

    Child#3 is home. Apparently the wifi at his student house got cut off on Friday. He came home yesterday.

    Wondering how soon I can start nagging him to get a job!

    Was hammering down.

    Then sunny.

    Now grey.

    Windy.

    The roast beef was ok.

    Dishes half done, now drinking the first of my 0.525 pints of Glengettie tea.

    It is Very Nice.

    No need for an eviction notice nowadays, just cut off the Internet and watch them flee

    It amazes me that more of them don't get run over in the street, so addicted are they to gazing gormlessly at some screen or other.

    In other other news, the 2nd 0.525 pints of Glengettie tea have been drunk so it's time to finish the washing up & prepare for the unbelievable thrill of the Sunday afternoon shopping expedition.

    <hiatus or interstitial pause>

    Shopping done.

    The Glengettie demanded that it should be let out urgently by the time I got to Morrisons.

    Severe weather warning of thunderstorms for Tuesday and Wednesday!

    It's been pissing down here for most of the afternoon.



    Today's book is "Lost Honour, Betrayed Loyalty: The memoir of a Waffen-SS soldier on the eastern front" by Herbert Maeger, who, it turns out, was actually born a Belgian, since the bit he was born in only became Belgium after 1919 and became Germany again after 1940.

    To be honest, it doesn't sound like a bundle of laughs, all in all.

    <hiatus>

    And speaking as we were of brave little soldiers, I've just observed one next door in his fecking dressing gown as per usual.

    Naturally enough, doing a bit of housework such as cleaning up some of the accumulated filth therein is plainly much beyond him.

    Idle twat.

    watching people disassembling a jumbo jet.

    interesting stuff.

    It's gone very grey here over the last hour or so, and it's a bit breezy, but the forecast insists there won't be any rain even though there's showers within a few miles according to the radar. We shall see…

    He'd probably just want you to help him take it all down the tip

    I'm back on one of my occasional forays into SpriteKit, Apple's framework for sprite-based games. I've got a blob appearing on the screen, and now I'm going to make it move…
