    Waitrose wine delivery has arrived.

    A few phone calls from agent and client and they are working on a solution (someone in HR got involved and wants to delay the start so she gets her annual bonus for saving the company money)

    Might not be un-retired quite yet

    As if there's ever any washings that aren't mundane but there you goest.

    Since it's sunny I decided to wash the bedding as well so it can dry on the line before greeting the TD later.

    The sheer unadulterated excitement of my pointless retired life is beyond belief.
    Bedsheets on line, cottons in TD.

    Shirts out of WM1 and denim & coloureds in instead.

    The cottons seem to be taking an age today.

    It reckoned it was 54 minutes before I went for my walk, when I came back it reckoned it was 1 hour 22.

    Waiting to put the shirts in there next.

    <brief interstitial hiatus>

    Cottons out, shirts in.

    I don't suppose the sheets are much drier than when I put them out.

    I have seen similar with my washing machine. towards the end of the wash. It sometimes reports how much is left in part of the wash(a cycle?), not the whole wash. Which is highly annoying.

    Finding a Dutch food restaurant is proving a challenge. We may yet just go back to Amsterdam.

    Had a fabulous meal here Welkom bij Cafe Lalalaa, het meest culinaire feestcafe van ’s-Hertogenbosch. All small plates and we want for the 'trust the chef' four dishes so had no idea what we were going to get. Highlights were the lobster bisque and veal served on a bed of chicory.

    Now to the hotel bar for a nightcap. Have walked over 15k steps today!

    Home!

    The conference overran by about twenty minutes, and then it turned out the car park fed into some very narrow street which was chockablock at that time of evening, so it took until gone half-past-six before I was on the main road pointed out of Brighton

    Could have made it in a straight three hours from there, but there was a lane closure for roadworks on the “smart” motorway just past Northampton. The problem is that everything on what used to be the hard shoulder has to get over a lane, and the end result is that all the remaining lanes are brought to a halt as everyone jockeys for position. I spent a year working in Northampton so I know that stretch very well from pre-smart days, and only at the height of the rush hour was there a vague chance it would jam up like that with the normal three lanes

    Still, other than that it was plain sailing (pace the deranged drivers of the M25). Time to get my dinner on

    : Evening all :

    Did a bit of gardening this afternoon in the bright sunshine.

    Sheets dried nicely on the line & were finished off in the TD.

    Tea this evening was M&S chunky breaded haddock.

    It was nice enough.

    Rounded off with 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    The evening's amusement came courtesy of BTVS S5 E1 & 2, Angel S2 E1 & 2, none of which were crossovers.

    Dawn made her advent.

    As did Dracula.

    The aforementioned "smart" motorways seem as dubious an idea as the "smart" meters.
