    Romantic walk had with HWMBO to Screwfix and the garage where his ex had left her car for us to pick up (not that we need a car this week)

    To escape the endless building work I went down to the garage to have a potch about with the bags of paperwork that resides therein.

    Found Strangelove Mater's passport (expired 1999, never used), some premium bond numbers, photographs of Neath, photographs of my great Aunts from about 1918, photographs of my Grandfather and Grandmother and Grandfather's brothers from Oz & South Africa in 1962, slightly too late since GF's dementia was too far advanced for him to reaiise who they were.

    Tea: Tesco chunky breaded cod, stewed pears Tesco Granny Smiths apples (being too unpleasant to eat otherwise and barely edible when cooked) with custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: "Wrong side of town (2010)" with Dave Bautista, it having fallen out of a pile so it would be rude to put it back.

    It has a rating of 3.8 but Stormy Daniels is in it.

    Secret Scotland is on 5 at 20:00, it being about islands this week, so hopefully better than last week's effort.

    Thanks to repeatedly going up and down stairs, dragging bins around, shopping, and so on, the watch has already credited me with seventeen minutes of exercise for free

    Going to go for a short walk round some acceptable bits of the neighbourhood just to top it off

    Walk duly and briskly walked, red and green rings closed

    Very briskly, in fact, because it feels very chilly out there - 7°C, but despite there not being any breeze that I noticed, it feels colder

    Calman is more entertaining this week: Fingal's Cave & a rallying old mini on Mull.

    Now she's digging up maram grass.

    To protect this:

    The Outer Hebrides Machair

    Now making wooden sea shells.

    Tobermory.

    Biscuit factory powered by woodchips.

    Sea Eagle.

    That's a big bird's nest.

    Mull's a great driving island for sure.
    as long as you don't encounter any largeish animals on blind bends.

    I once encountered a cow on the sliproad off the A465 at Neath Abbey.

    It was quite exciting.

    Then again I once encountered a yellow van that I eventually realised was stationary in the fast lane of the M4.

    That was even more exciting when I squeezed the Zodiac MkIV between said van & the central reservation crash barrier.

    A deer once caused much damage to the parentals' car. Took out the headlight and front grill IIRC. On a Merc that wasn't a cheap repair.
