    CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED!

    Well, postponed to Easter at any rate

    It seems my brother has decided that it's too risky and thinks my idea of a postponement is the right one, and as everybody always defers to him, it looks like it's a done deal

    "Err, yes?" says Son.

    "Switch them off" says helpdesk guy.

    "OK..." says Son, but does as requested.

    Laptop starts working again.
    Can you interfere with MrsB's laptop and maybe use that as an excuse with her?

    Cottons in the WM.

    Shirts out of the TD and roughly ironed, or as ironed as they're likely to get, thencely hung on hangers and airing on the picture rail in the back bedroom.

    <hiatus while the TD generates random numbers>

    Cottons out of the TD into the washing basket and thence to the floor of the hall since I can't be arsed to walk upstairs again to hang them over the banisters.

    Bit more concreting done in the tin shed.

    Not sure quite how much more I can be arsed to do.

    I suppose I'd better finish it off more or less properly.

    Tea (once I've recovered from the day's exertions): non chunky Tesco breaded haddock, stewed pears and custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    I don't bother to iron things anymore. Wrinkled clothes suit my complexion.

    I give things a good, firm shake on extraction from the WM and out them straight onto hangers for drying. That seems to deal with the worst of any creasing. That and I try to choose fabrics that don't crease too easily

    I very rarely iron things, but occasionally I'll do something. I don't recall having used the iron this year, though

    It's already down to 4°C out, according to whatever tells the weather app things. But my back, which was playing up but has been improving this week, seems to benefit more from my going for a walk than from the exercise bike, so I'm going for a walk

    Just heard The Wife (tm) on a conference call say that she heard me just pop a cork on Friday Fizz. She repeated it a little louder to make sure I heard.
