Currently regretting the removal of the bath when we had the bathroom done. A ‘lazy shower’ isn’t as appealing as a ‘lazy bath’.

Conversely, we had a bath fitted when we redid the bathroom n years ago and have regretted it ever since.  We have an excellent shower, the bath has only been used once by a human and twice by the dogs, and we could have got a weights bench into the space it takes up.

Regretting choices made.

I’ll let you know in 2 1/2 hours. I’ve only got a few LPs, but it seemed criminal to pass up the chance to see her.  The audience is mostly of a certain age*.......


* it’s younger than the audiences at the Liverpool Jazz Festival where I was all weekend though.

She had a throat/chest infection. Very impressed with the NHS treatment & not being asked for money up front.

I really ought to clean the lower half of the fridge.  I did the top half last week in the process of changing the thermostat (which, impressively, does appear to have worked).

Contemplating my packing list for the boys trip to Talin which promises to be a bit chilly. We are leaving at pre-audex o’clock tomorrow morning1. Communication between Dr Beardy and myself is becoming more strained with each passing hour, as is usual when I go away for the weekend2 and by the time she goes to bed this evening3 she’ll probably be hard pressed to say goodbye to me.

1. 2am is really tonight in my opinion.
2. I often wonder why I bother, but then getting her to even go to Yorkshire for a weekend and visit her parents is a major undertaking.
3. I’ll be staying up due to the un<deity> hour. See 1 above.

Waiting for Data Logger Dave to come and meddle with the electricity supply again, hopefully with a view to increasing the number of voles.

Trying to work out who I can volunteer to go through the manway and under the plenum floor of a Rapid Gravity Filter. There is a pile of sand that shouldn't be there so someone needs to determine if there is a broken nozzle or a failed joint in the floor above.

Obviously it is not a task I particularly want to do but I may have to.

Thinking that it's too wet and windy to walk the 10 metres to the workshop so I'll just stay here.

I'd have done it for the danger money!

Observing with interest the supply of voles[1] to KimBarakta-HQ.

I opened the door earlier with a view to going to the postal oriface[2], to be met by the sight of  a) rain that wasn't happening when I looked out the upstairs window a minute or so earlier and  b) assorted linemen for the county, dressed in orange hi-vis, clutching some sturdy rubber gloves and peering at map of Silly Oak.

"Hello Kim," says one, who I recognised from one of the previous data logger installations, "we're swapping connections in the link boxes to see if we can balance out the load better.  Don't suppose you can keep an eye on things this evening, could you?  Cos if I ring you tomorrow and it's still rubbish we can just try something else rather than bothering with a data logger..."

In the time it took me to wrangle my bike out the door they'd lifted the manhole cover and were peering at some Extremely Large Fuses™.


[1] Which has gone from 208 voles when I started this post to 222annabit voles now, so I can safely conclude that it's still rubbish even without mucking about in GNUplot.
[2] ALC types will be pleased to hear I've finished auditing the accounts well within the deadline.

I was having that 'called in sick today but now I feel a bit of a fraud feeling', but now that I've just had a shower and am sitting down having a good sweat with the heating off I don't feel that way any more.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

I was Not In The Mood for the FNRttC after a long and depressing afternoon in the hospital, so some tedious arithmetic was just the thing...

Just going to fix my 5th puncture since 2nd Feb. 3 different wheels and 3 different tyres, one front and 4 back.  Latest one was in a brand new GP4000s II.

Trying to maintain a sense of perspective while discussing the state of the nation with my right wing father. His inability to accept anything outside his world view. 😠

Having just been let blood and had the piss taken out of me, am now waiting for the vet to arrive and vaccinate the dogs.

Cue dog-wrestling music.
