    You know that thing? That thing where you go downstairs for a cup of tea and return to your desk with a refreshing cup of boiling water?

    Yeah, that.

    No exercise bicycling done. Instead, I've been for a brisk walk around the more salubrious parts of the neighbourhood, with an emphasis on those pointing upwards, such as they are. Added to the very few minutes the watch granted me for the shopping, that gets me to green ring closed

    Elevation gain in total was 109ft, proving that the uphill bits round here aren't very uphill

    Near the end, the local copper passed me in a car. He slowed down and gave me a big wave out of his open window, thereby demonstrating to anybody watching that I am well known to the police

    Lunch, lunched - seafood pasta which included lots of my favourite sea creature (dead and alive) - Octopus. I had a surfeit of the baby variety in the freezer, so they were duly prepared in Mediterranean fashion (lots of lemon, sundried tomatoes, capers, garlic and anchovy).
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    Mackerel pate on toast here. Blue skies outside now, but getting breezier, and the temp is only around 6C.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    Snitches get stitches.

    And another afternoon bites the dust.

    Brushed up more of those expensive chippings I paid a lot to have stuck on the external walls of the house.

    Took an old door down to the one pigsty that still has a roof of sorts.

    Cleaned up around the garden bench and next door's untouched for 18 months barbeque thingie.

    Then off down to the garage to inspect any ingress of water after yesterday's deluge: happily it seems to have remained dry, maybe all that expanding foam stuff worked.

    Then into the shed to inspect the contents of my grandfather's tool box which was inherited by my father & stuffed full of yet more tools, obsolete locks, and stuff I have no idea wtf it is.

    Found an odd thing that turned out to be a weighing scales.

    Also a selection of extremely rusty planes & such like that have received some WD40 before I attempt to clean them up properly.

    Once I'd got bored with that it was time for a shower, and now I'm sat here listening to the wireless.

    After a glorious sunny day it's got remarkably dark out there, and windy with it.

    There may be a squall on its way.

    Tea: Tesco chunky breaded haddock cod, etc.

    It's 17.1 deg in here currently.

    I thought the cold shower was a bit more bracing that it has been.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    Dog walked, sun shining, blue skies, still billing hours.

    Well there's a thing: the two wooden planes I found are "coffin smoothers".
