    Great story @gennepher and thanks for the link. I liked the colours. I couldn't/wouldn't buy into the feeling energised or helping my spirit vibe but I like "pretty." I'm much more a words and songs kinda guy even though so much of what I've studied and read about the meaning of much literature and poetry simply does not compute either with the words on the page/screen or anything in real human experience. Film as art absolutely baffles me - I just see big business wants our money and useful idiots call it art. I can become "fully invested" (what have we become?) in live sport, well ball sports and Olympics. I'd be with you all the way giving the art critics/precious short shrift. Too many Brian Sewell's and not enough Genns.

    This is such a non problem but just thinking about adults collecting these things made I larff. Sorry to anyone who finds the Potter dig offensive but look at the problems we have and tell me that matters. I have some sympathy for businesses struggling - people need jobs- but c'mon. So many of y'all wanted either Brexit, this shambles in Govt. or both. Shut the whatever up and own your choices. You knew - we all did if we're honest.

    I am hoping the weather app is telling the truth that we have sunshine all day, because me and his Lordship will be in the garden and warm potting shed all day.

    I love sunny Autumn and Winter days because the potting shed is lovely and warm to be in.

    After he had licked all the pastes I give him (extra nutrients and taurine for an older cat), he decided he wanted cat food!

    He did the guarding me again last night, so I massaged his toes and he fell asleep. Then, I put his warm fleece over him...

    I took this photo in the night. Luckily no badger. My strategies appear to be working. There was just Jade asleep on a cushion on my thatched swing. Her eyes opened. Food? I obliged so I wouldn't tripping over a cat.

    This rose has a bit of a faded glow at night if the sky is light. It is the last of this particular flowering rose bushes. But the phone camera kept compensating because of nighttime. And it wasn't what I wanted. So, I played with it in Snapseed until I got something a bit near the way I wanted.

    Good morning everyone, it’s another very quiet start to the day here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of Chicken salad followed by a slice of my apple and walnut cake came in at 5.4 this am

    Not a great deal yesterday. Finally got the results of the search on the new house. All seems to be in order and importantly all relevant building regulations are in place and there are no plans to do any deep mining or HS2 ploughing through the back garden. Mrs Miggins realised that the MOT on her car has already run out so a couple of phone calls and it goes in this afternoon at our preferred back street garage. Well, in an industrial unit but that description is not as romantic. Mrs Queen has been chirping about the sayers and doers, Big Foot has been spotted in Marbella - other scintillating titbits of tittle tattle available including the hot air balloon that is David Frost - no, not the 9 o’clock news.

    Arty farty bit - another bird on yet another twig. Hope your day is a good one no matter what you choose to call it. Bit early for koffy but hey!

    Despite my stated intention to get outside into the beautiful day, actually spent the morning gainfully employed helping to lay the underfloor heating. The afternoon was entirely wasted on a long, hot frustrating car journey. One if the reasons we are changing cars is because the air conditioning has broken down and will be expensive to investigate and repair. So lovely day to be outside and we spent hours in a hot car, stuck in traffic jams for ages. All to find that the car we had come to view was available, but the owner had changed conditions for the meeting and was not around. We waited an hour then drove home through the same horrendous traffic. Both of us swore we would never live in a city.
    Errant has recovered his appetite, although he still has only a pathetic little squeak of a voice. Otherwise he seems fine. Am wondering if his less than impressive warcry is why I have had to intervene three night in a row when a tomcat I have never seen before attacked him. Right on our doorstep. Luckily Tom left instantly when I put on the outside light, but Errant has another collection of battle scars. With so few teeth Errant cannot possibly be an effective fighter even though he does have long claws.

    Wet, cold and a hideous number of clothes needed to compensate here. Despite being strongly dehorted by young Pritti temporary visas for sun were issued hereabouts by the local news. 18c Sunday and 20c promised for next Thursday - huzzah, BBC website seems to have had an update from Pritti's press officer -:arghh: Fbg of 5.4 on Swipey utterly meh but up to 20 gms carb yesterday (that's inflation for ya), couple of experiments in there. I don't have to like this WOE, just suck it up while it works then ......??? Score draw yesterday and over the 6 years on the meter - maybe. SSSF today. Elsie really doesn't get any better for me and 'tis only a Lesser Festival for Teresa of Avila and mini payday. (Bless you Guv/Gov.) Yes indeed @karen8967. In a previous incarnation it was often POETS day. Enjoy the sun @gennepher and I appreciate the rose even though I can't stand 'em myself. @dunelm so much good news. Searches good, tick; MOT arranged,tick; cake a triumph,tick; my Bestie in Marbella, tick- how very appropriate. Wonder if some underling with a sense of humour booked that after reading The Pandora Papers ? Now, be good boys, girls, non cis etc and play nice but socially distanced if you don't mind - unless you are in a Drs surgery. Feel free to crowd in and cough all over the immunologically compromised in those low risk places. It is your right, nay duty, as a free born English???? Away wiv that clap for carers rubbish, far too woke.

    5.5 this morning. Am a bit late posting because of no wifi. Luckily it was a problem with one of the Halo thingys which Mr K was able to sort out.
    Then we spent rather a long time on the phone trying to sort out switching mobile phone providers. Hopefully the problem has now been sorted and the switch will go ahead smoothly.

    Cold in Cumbria today with wall to wall sunshine if it can get over our large hedges.
    The day started with all the fields around our cottage covered in white frost.
    Winter season is back again .
    regards
    Derek
