    MrsBP and twins wanted to have a WW2 day. I offered to put them in the bunker and drop bombs on them. They declined my kind offer....

    Hints of blue sky observed through the gap in the living room curtains.

    Contrary to my belief that I would sleep well last night, I didn't. I had an awful headache for most of the evening. I took some Solpedeine Max (the good ones with codeine) before bed after which I then proceeded to have some very peculiar dreams. Woke up at 6 am coughing and wondered if this was the start of the end. It stopped after a short while, so I guess not, and I dozed until about 10 am still having odd dreams.

    Head is still fuzzy.

    Last alcoholic drink imbibed was last Saturday evening so it's not a hangover.

    Blue skies out. Chilly. I opened the kitchen window to water the herbs in the window trough and shut it again sharpish.

    Smalls and t-shirts in the WM.

    First coffee being drunk.

    Morning denizens

    Cloudy start out, though with some interstices through which sunlight comes fitfully from time to time

    Only up to 8°C so far, and forecast to get windy in a bit

    My petroleum jelly hand stuff has arrived at the Amazon Locker, so I’ll be venturing out across the back of the petrol station forecourt in a bit

    They were not. I don’t know why, as they usually get done about 1:30pm to 2pm, and the main gate was open then AFAIK. They do say on the council website that crews might be swapped around at short notice, so maybe we got a crew that didn’t know they have to do the back lane? Or maybe they were just short-handed and we were dropped from the schedule

    Anyway, thanks to our landlord’s policy of keeping four tucked away in our actual backyard where the neighbours can’t see them, which he either transfers the contents of to a neighbouring bin that’s been left out or swaps for empty ones if he can find them, we’ll be OK for the coming week
