    Dinner has been a roast pork loin crackling joint with the usual trimmings, and very nice it was

    The potatoes were perhaps slightly below par, as they were fairly old ones that needed finishing off. But still perfectly edible.

    As it was eighty years ago that the Dunkirk evacuation was drawing to its end, tonight's entertainment (courtesy of iPlayer) was Dunkirk (1958) - IMDb, being the one with a linear narrative starringJohn Mills, Richard Attenborough, Bernard Lee (aka M in the Bond films) et al. rather than the recent one with the multiple timelines. Very good in a stolid English kind of way

    Goodnight all

    Ooh! A turnover! Now that's a fine idea.

    Currently 17 degrees and cloudy. Forecast it for a high of 19 and chance of rain increasing from 0900.

    The hourly chance of rainfall from 0900 to 1700 is 40% or 50% but the overall chance of precipitation today is 60%

    Undecided what to have for breakfast. It'll most likely be toast to use up the loaf.

    First coffee almost finished.

    Morning all
    Thin high-level cloud and a bit humid, but doesn't look like "rain at 9am" as was forecast.

    Morning all

    Grey,
    Wet,
    Cooler.

    Breakfast was more sourdough toast with marmalade, eaten out of MrsB's presence to avoid dietary angst.

    1st coffee done.

    2nd now being contemplated.

    Todays plans include the construction of a work bench for th garage from the assorted bits of timber and board left over from the office conversion.
