    OTOH sometimes I wonder what the hell I'm working for. Can't see a lot of good things on the horizon and I find living in the moment almost impossible. It's depressing surveying the possibilities for the next thirty-odd years. If I had decent life insurance I'd string myself up and save myself the bother.
    You will be able to go on holiday outside the UK easily in the next 18 months. Pandemics are tulip but they don't last forever.

    Oh and morning.

    Nice blue sky but feels like autumn outside.

    Morning denizens

    Grey out, a bit chilly at 11°C (which I'm pretty certain is going down - sure it was 12° half-an-hour ago), and a high likelihood of rain starting soon and carrying on into the night

    I need to venture to the post office again!

    At least it gets me out of the flat. I may go to one further away to get more of a walk in.

    Although, looking at the meetings I have today, I'm not sure when I'll have time. Whilst the journey is a known duration, the queue is not!

    Maybe I'll do it tomorrow.

    The insomnia struck again, so I was reading about the Battle of Kursk at 03:50 this morning.

    Sleep returned at 05:55ish.

    Morning all

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Grey.

    Drizzly.

    Sunless.

    Wednesday.

    1003 mBar and 65% RH.

    17.3 deg in here this morning.

    Morning all.

    Grey, dull, generally horrible.

    And that's before we get to the weather.

    I have a call later where I get to explain to a PM and her boss why the extra resource they've engaged to be a "technical lead" for a migration project we're planning is a. unnecessary and b. not part of the currently agreed process for using a 3rd party for running all migration work. Sadly said resource will be on the call.

    This is what happens when PMs jump and do things without asking any of the people actually involved in the initial planning, design and handover of work, but just keep repeating the same mistakes from previous projects.

    I'm not wasting my time handing over anything to a guy whose technical knowledge is basically zero and who isn't part of any agreed process for the work. If they push it I might just say tulip it and walk.

    Still on passing showers here, but unremittingly grey

    Steady rain is scheduled for around lunchtime, I believe. Currently wondering whether to go for a walk or stick with the exercise bike for today
