    Lunch was red pepper and tomato soup, I can't confirm of the status of the laundry as the washing machine isn't answering her phone
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Lunch was nasi goreng that had been maturing nicely in the fridge since Friday. Topped with an egg, as it should be.

    Very yummy.

    The boiler man and his young apprentice came round to do the annual gas safety check. As usual, they noticed the pressure wasn't as high as it should be as the pipe coming in isn't big enough. As usual, the landlady will ignore that as it doesn't have a material impact on the boiler's performance and to change that pipe will be a bit of a big job.

    Now just waiting on the electrician to tell me when he's coming to fix some lights.

    Washing done and the errant sock will soon be reunited with its partner

    I bung all the cottons in together, it doesn't seem to make much difference since everything is so old anyway.

    What temperature do they get done at?

    I do mine at 75 deg to ensure they're properly dead. and un malodourous.

    Haven't had lunch yet since I've been to that Swansea for the morning.

    Now in with the hoi polloi and a ponger has just sat down next to me.

    Off home now since my stomach thinks my throat's been cut. .

    In other news my right big toe is complaining.

    I wonder if it's gout from all the port and spirits I drink.

    I don't separate towels. They have all been washed plenty enough times that they are now colourfast.

    My WM does either 60 deg or 90 deg as its hot wash options. The latter feels a bit too hot for cotton, and I'd rather not end up with a flannel, so I wash mine at 60.

    Home again home again jiggety jig.

    Lunch: poached tomato and leathery scrambled egg on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast (crust).

    Yum.

    Currently enjoying 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    The toe has been dosed with TCP and will shortly experience some surgical spirit as well.

    Having lost my O2 PAYG phone a few weeks ago I applied for a refund of my account, about £20 I thought. Got a cheque today for £0.05!

    I’ve got roughly equal quantities of light and dark ones, and each lot makes for a reasonably sized load in the machine, so I group them thus

    Same here, both on the age/colour fastness and the available temperatures. I do towels and such at 60°, with a scoop of that Oxi stuff added to help keep odoriferous microorganisms at bay
