    Shirts pass through the WM and the TD: done.

    Even ironed bits of 3 shirts to make them look a bit less like they'd been slept in.

    Denim & darks through the WM & currently in the TD.

    Cottons in the WM.

    The excitement of my day knows few bounds.

    The commentary on an ep of BTVS and and ep of Angel: done & dusted.

    It's still 18 .1 deg in here and has been all morning.

    Quite comfortably really.

    The shivering thing of last night seems to have passed.

    Turns out the over 65 shot has squalene in it as an adjuvant.

    The under 65 one doesn't.

    I think I'll opt for that next year.

    Turns out that the outstanding amount less what is sitting in the offset account turned out to be less than the final dividend payment of the year that MyCo is due to pay later this month.

    After a quick company meeting, the dividend payment was made a couple of days early and we are now debt free. (Well, until Hector says hello on 31st January.)

    There are slight hints of blue sky peeking through the gap between the living room curtains.

    In fact, there's a hint of sunshine atop the mountain across the vaaaalleeeey there's tidy then boyo.

    In fact, more than a hint: the sun has got his hat on.

    Shopping done

    As expected, I got rained on at various points in degrees from light to heavy; though nothing as bad as it is right now, so they missed a trick there

    After collecting the present from John Lewis, which entailed an unpleasant trek through the Eye of Sauron Shopping Mall, I went to the city centre M&S, as the out-of-town one is a pain to get to at this time of year, the access road being snarled with people going to Primark and Currys and such.

    Then on to the market, where despite wanting to get it over with ASAP I couldn’t break the old habit, ingrained from following my then-GF around there on Saturday afternoons in the 1980s, of walking the length and breadth of what claims to be the largest market in Europe, sizing up the quality and price of the veg on different stalls. (They’re all pretty much the same. They always are.) That done, I was then able to get a bowl of carrots and one of onions for a quid each; there’s enough there to last me a month or two.

    And on to the indoors meat market, though I’d remembered I have stuff in the freezer to use up, so I just got some pork chops (probably tonight’s tea) and smoked bacon, the later involving the usual dance of more than a pound being put on the scales, and them going to peel off a couple of rashers, and me saying “It’s OK, leave it on there, it’ll all get eaten”

    Then back to the car park, getting well soaked in the process, and out of town to Sainsbury’s, where my expectation of a limited beer-oriented shop came to naught, as I kept remembering stuff like detergent and so forth that I needed as I wandered around; I ended up spending roughly the same as I always do, just with fewer enjoyable thing to show for it (unless laundry suddenly becomes enjoyable).

    And finally I got some reduced-to-clear BBQ chicken wings off the hot food counter, which I shall now have for lunch

    Mundane laundry done

    Mine's done too.

    Even found the missing sock from last week that I found out about this morning when I only had one sock left in the pile.

    Lunch was baked beans on Morrisons sunflower and pumpking seed toast.

    When rounded off with 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea it was quite acceptable.

    After another round of Freecell at 91%, it was time for tea, being M&S chunky breaded haddock.

    It, when rounded off with 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea, was quite nice, being not cooked to death.

    The faulty simmerstat on the cooker is becoming really irritating.

    The evening's entertainment is BTVS S7 E7 & 8, Angel S4 E7 & 8, with the latter going all apocalyptic and such like.

    Now that was inneresting vBulletin just caught the attempted 2nd posting of this chunk of nonsense.
