    Morning all

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    Clear blue sky.

    Slightly cooler. 17.1 deg.

    998 mBar and 65% RH.

    Thursday.

    It transpires that yesterday's leap over the overflowing leat was not a good idea since the left knee is complaining quite a lot.

    Ho hum.

    You can't win, sometimes you can't even break even.

    One hypothesis I've formulated is that this is because I still have the summer duvet on the bed and it just isn't warm enough; I wasn't exactly cold, but it definitely wasn't toasty. An alternative hypothesis is that it was due to having a pot of tea late afternoon, as I'm not used to having caffeine at that time of day. But it seems unlikely it would still be affecting me so much ten or more hours later.

    I'll have to remember to change to the medium duvet today and see if I sleep better tonight. If so, I can then reintroduce the teapot to the equation and determine if that has any influence
    DO keep us posted on developments, the excitement is palpable

    Agreed. It sounds like a fine experiment.

    I keep my 13 10.5 tog duvet on all year round as I can't be dealing with changing weights of coverings. If I'm too hot in the summer, I just kick the cover off or stick a leg out.

    In my defence, I seldom have the TV on before 10pm other than watching a bit of rubbish (usually on Pick or a similar channel of repeats) while I eat

    But speaking of Pick, they're starting ST:DS9 from the beginning today at 18:00. I must series record that as I haven't seen any of it since it was first on, and maybe it'll be something to watch when I finally get to the end of ST:TNG

    10pm usually has me in bed listening to "The World Tonight" on R4. I don't think that I have ever managed to listen to all the episodes of "Book of The Week", without falling asleep at some point (or "Book at Bedtime" - ladymuck)

    I tend to miss Book of the Week (didn't it used to be called Book at Bedtime?) but it's repeated in the day time so not so much a problem to catch up on. Similarly, I end up missing The World Tonight, which is good when I remember to put it on.

    I used to like the 11pm funny half hour but it's gone a bit naff lately. Today in Parliament at 11:30pm can be interesting but I'm usually asleep by the end of it.

    Sunny.

    Walk walked in the glorious autumnal sunshine.

    Managed to pick up an addition to my footwear which took a bit of getting rid of just now.

    Two chem trails observed within 5 minutes of each other, one a heavy, the other notsoheavy.

    Knee held up ok, didn't complain until I came back downstairs after the much needed wee (it's my age, see?).

    I had the opportunity to purchase DS9 in one of those charity emporia, but declined so to do.

    Could have done the same with Farscape and didn't do that either.

    I've never seen the boxset with the Wig Wearing War Criminal in any charity shoppe.

    There's a book reading at 09:45 that's repeated at 00:30 (currently Agent Sonya).

    The book reading at 12:05 is repeated at 22:45 (i.e. book at bedtime, currently "The vanishing futurist").

    And there's a third, the book reading in "Woman's Hour" at 10:45 which is repeated at 19:45 (currently "Broken English").

    Glad we've cleared that up.

    The remaining lamb has been taken off the bone, and bone plus veg set on low in the slow cooker, with the Scotch broth forecast to arrive around 9pm tonight

    And I've remembered to set the pea-barley-lentil-and-so-on mix to soak for a few hours; sometimes I forget, which doesn't seem to matter so much in the slow cooker but it's probably better to do it properly

    Winter's coming. The Rayburn is lit.

    There was some chap waffling away on You & Yours just now about how his one man company was still generating £1000 payslips for him even though he wasn't getting the money out of the company, so it screwed up his UC claim.



    WTF would you do that?

    Generate a P45 FFS.
