Miserable weather appears to have moved on and one can now see blue sky and sunshine.

More tea to be had, then jobs(various) to be attempted and completed.

Notarious, tea and coffee both. And then drink it quite happily cold.

After the pooch had scoffed down her lovingly prepared lunch, Wiking went into hotel mode and inquired were she willing to fill out a guest questionnaire?
How was the food presented? Was the server friendly? Did the taste and quality of the meal live up to her expectations?

After 25 years of being the Man Who Didn't Want a Dog, hes certainly changed.

Grey and miserable here, but the fire is cheery, nobody wants anything from us and we shall be deliciously lazy and unkempt!

Sounds like a perfect Sunday, Juud!

Dog is wuffing angrily at the magpies - she absolutely loathes them. Fellow dog-owners will know the sound:

WUUH.....(pause) wuh wuh wuh....wuuuuh..........(long pause) WUUUUH!

I think it's doggy-speak for, "if I wasn't shut inside I would come out there and personally rip every feather from your cold dead bodies, a**holes".

Sorry

I have been plagued by an ear-worm since yesterday. The only way I know to get rid of an ear-worm is to pass it on

Sorry again

Who else forgets where the tea was put down: or finds it to have gone cold?
Cold tea/coffee is standard SOP for nursing and medical staff.
RBG - Bryn gets upset if something bothers the blackbirds but is otherwise very easy going where birds are concerned. Dilys, however, hates magpies, is none too keen on crows and if she could catch a woodpigeon she would give it what for for clog dancing on her conservatory roof. Cats are not allowed in her garden and as she is allowed to come and go as she wishes (when the weather is suitable for the door to be left open) one or two have had a rather nasty fright but have managed to escape by the skin of their teeth.

Invented a new dish tonight that could become a classic - fennel braised in brown beer and mashed-up piquillo peppers. The beer because I didn't have any chicken stock and the peppers because I didn't have any tomatoes.

Whatever, any excuse to open a bottle of brown beer (this was Leffe) is a good excuse.

Good morning all. Bit damp here and overcast.
Got 4 hours last night so something of a miracle.

Done my one legged knee exercises to strengthen the muscles.
Rain overnight again.
It is time for us to make the collective effort and inspire Handsfree.
Who spotted the helicopter reference?

Maybe you should do cyclic exercises for your knee

A documentary from 1962 (Tyne Tees Television) about the North East of England. Lots of nostalgia for you Mr Draper

Thank you for posting the video Mr Ricardian.
Very interesting and a nice little diversion while passing the night hours
unable to sleep.
Lots of MkIV Doris to be observed too.

Dry here but still dark of course. Forecast is fairly good though.

Visit to the Sons of Morris later as the cupboard is bare.

Another video from the same site. This time a Manchester street scene from 1901

Good morning all. Good video clip, looks a lot busier than today. Not raining was the weather different then, as it is raining here again.
