    Morning all

    Dull, overcast but dry out. Currently 12 degrees and that's where it'll stay for the day. Unlikely to rain. Barometer down to 1024 mBar.

    Assorted clothings in the WM.

    HWMBO is making bacon and eggs for breakfast.

    <taps screen: Is this thing borked again?>

    Lunch: Heinz leak & potato soup, Morrisons multiseed bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    The endless drizzle is greyly endlessly drizzling.

    Clothings have been washed and hung about the place.

    I am beginning to suspect the drainage from the shower / utility room is connected to another flat in my building as, once again, I have backflow into the shower tray when my WM drains. When this happened a month or two ago the plumber found tights in the pipe and i couldn't fathom how they got there. However, having now had what looked and smelled like fresh vomit upchuck into the shower tray, I am now thinking I am not the only person using it.

    Fortunately, I don't use that shower as it's crap or else I'd be very, very grumpy.

    Email sent to my landlady along with other gripes that I need to tell her about

    I wonder if this week's tenancy renewal offer will be recinded?

    I well remember the small river of raw sewage that made its way from the manhole at the bottom of the steps, down the garden path, crossed over my potato patch and made a nice big puddle in next door's lawn.

    We had ever such a good crop of spuds that year.

    In other news, the endless grinding is ongoing next door, along with what may be electric planing, and a good deal of hammering.

    And the thermostat / timer for the heating has gone on the blink. I wondered why the boiler was on and the flat way too warm. Turns out it had reset itself and thought it was 4.52 PM and the temperature was low enough that heating was required.

    Hurray.

    I think I'll cancel the tenancy renewal and move out at this rate.

    Drizzly.

    Unpleasant.

    Bored.

    Now.

    Afternoon all

    Grey but still warmish.

    Dog walked, along with picking up some eggs from the small holding along the way that has lots of rescued ex-battery hens now living the free range life.

    Shopping done.

    Bike prepped for a long but local ride tomorrow. 200km all within 20km of home to keep my Audax RRTY on track.

    Time for a sit down with a cuppa before thinking about what to cook for dinner. Could be ribs, could be curry, could be kofte's. Haven't decided yet.

    Yuck! For a few years I was always hearing a loud running noise from my en suite shower whenever it rained. Discovered recently the dip tube was missing. Got a detached fortunately, don't share sewers with anyone.
