    Afternoon denizens

    Grey and a bit drizzly, but at least it's raised the temperature a bit, to 8°C

    I've asked my Mum to send me her recipes for a particular stuffing I like and for the turkey soup she makes on Boxing Day, as Christmas may be cancelled but that's no reason not to pig out when The Day Formerly Known As arrives

    Vac run over the bits of floor I can see without moving too much stuff.

    Taking five minutes now before I can summon up the energy to put back stuff I did move.

    Zoom call with the Kiwis at 8:30 tomorrow morning, so this is advance notice that I'll be getting an early night

    Police have applied to take away the licence of a bar up the road. Apparently this is related to the fact that they recently discovered that while it's been closed during lockdown, it had been repurposed as a cannabis farm

    In fact, so energetic did I become that I've moved stuff that hasn't moved in 8 months or more and rearranged the audio system a bit, along with the Lidl(tm) battery chargers and the Halfords(tm) drill battery chargers and the slightly defunct computer audio thingie* that's been keeping the whole lot up since Xmas or so.

    Then I vacced where it had been and dusted a bit.

    I did look at the tv setup but that's not been moved for years, but the wiring is remarkable in its complexity & I really really can't be arsed though there's at least one VCR that's 90% fecked & now only operates as a modulator for a sat receiver.

    Could have been worse:

    Afternoon

    After a foggy start today's high was 12 degrees.

    I had to go get a parcel from Next.

    They had put a desk blocking one of the doorways with a couple plastic screens on it. You then said your parcel number to the shop assistant, who would wander of into the store and find it.

    Now doing very little.

    Date night tonight.

    There's fizz in the fridge with which to make champagne cocktails. White wine in the fridge to accompany one of the courses. HWMBO has chosen a red wine for the other courses.

    Today's meal came from Lyles and was delivered yesterday. Immediate excitement as the presentation is completely different to the meal we ordered from Club Gascon.

    More of your own effort required to cook and compile the dishes but that's way better than eating a cremeux from a cardboard box because the dessert can't be replated.

    HWMBO is now planning which cocktails we will be drinking that compliment the menu.

    Something tells me I'm going to be very drunk this evening...
