    • Following Doc Rob's repairs, the hedge is now fully pruned. This will hopefully keep the letting agent happy for a few months. Maybe, in exchange, they will come and paint my hallway?
    • Twitter, or more precisely the users of Twitter, began to annoy me. Again. I have therefore semi-abandoned my …

    I've been slack of late. This post has been sat in drafts waiting for me to finish it but I've not been bothered to do so. Here goes a catch up, then.

    • There was a beer festival at a neighbouring establishment ("pox-secure" by being pre-book only, two hours max per …

    • You know how I mentioned about the free money piss-take in Episode 25-38? Guess who isn't coming back now that the gib-me-dats are finishing‽
    • Autumn is approaching. The central heating is starting to kick in in the mornings, and as a Norfern Munkey, I don't keep it set very high …

    • In another round of "throw some shit and see what sticks", the pub now has to close at 22:00. As well as robbing me of a couple of hours of wage a week, it won't make any difference to the pox. Particularly if everyone is milling the streets looking …

    Another round up because of slack. I'll skim over the main points, with some breakout posts for particular bits coming in the near future.

    • The pub has re-opened, so getting some extra shifts in through the combination of some other staff leaving and the rest not coming back off furlough …

    Another period of slack. A round-up then.

    • I've moved, and have upgraded to a house somewhere in the Sheffield postcode area. I'd been looking at moving before all the coronabollox kicked off - indeed I should have moved the week that all the restrictions were imposed - as I wanted more space …

    So that was a failure. Three weeks then this “regular blogging” malarkey died on its arse. Quite a bit has changed since January, not just because of coronabollox. My laziness hasn’t changed since then.

    Following last week's credit card farce, I applied for another - Halifax Clarity - and was surprised to be accepted at the same limits as Tandem. There's no cashback, which doesn't really bother me, and no foreign exchange fees, which I do need. Result.

    Started doing Couch to 5K, the main aim …

    The Grannywagon got though its MOT without too many issues. The garage recommended a flush as the emissions readings were a tad high. This seems to have improved cold running, there's no longer a large white cloud coming out the exhaust for the first mile.

    The week was generally uneventful, as most of the office had taken the week off. Managed to stretch two day's work over four.

    New Year's Eve was a restrained affair. Couple of pints (the wooden cask OP) at The Alex followed by several in The Pothole. New Year's Day was …
