    That's Clients/Employers for you, anything to take advantage, its "batten down the hatches" for the next few years.

    Walk walked in the glorious sunshine.

    Warm enough to take jacket off unlike yesterday when it took half an hour to get warm enough to stop shivering.

    CBS is no more: grey/white fluffy clouds across the valley, there's tidy then, boyo.

    But the sun is still shining on the righteous side of the valley.

    i.e. on me.

    Lunch: Heinz tomato soup with a hint of chilli, Morrisons multiseed bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, pippy red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Simple traditional lunch of a wholemeal bacon bap

    The knee I banged yesterday isn't too bad but grumbles slightly from time to time, so I'm skipping the exercise bicycling today to avoid exacerbating things. Instead, I'll go for a brisk walk round and about the neighbourhood later

    For some reason this reminds me of the fact that the grass roller in the Centre Court at Wimbledon is too big to pass through any of the entrances. They put it there first, then built the place around it

    Which in turn reminds me of when Broadcasting House was built, and their shiny new Bechstein grand piano was delivered for the Concert Hall therein. The question arose of whether it would fit through any of the entrances, and the Director of Music refused to let them try until they were certain they could get it in without damaging it. So they asked the carpenters to measure it and build a full scale replica they could experiment with. This was done, and they then found that the replica was too big to get out of the carpenters' shop

    There's some incompetent lying twats infesting TWAO this afternoon.

    The wireless is definitely endangered.

    One of the idiots doesn't even understand his own rules.
