Months worth of used water filter cartridges went to Dyers for recycling in the mall formerly known as the Galleries, thence to Montpelier via the PRSC to take this photo (having failed to do so in anything but an artistically blurred way on my cameraphone last Saturday). Back down to East Street for some veg and black pudding, then to Sainsbury to get ramtops a sweetener refill packet. A distressing phone call along the way: Mac told me that the duck (quack) that we were planning to have that evening had gone terminally off. Lessons Have Been Learned (ie. don't keep ducks complete with giblets past their useby in the fridge), and it was Time To Move On to a tub of emergency beef and orange from the freezer.
Mac was going to make an apple pudding, but calamities compound and I found, on going to fetch them, that the apples stored in a box in the study wardrobe (well, where would you keep them?) had gone far beyond soft to a point just short of mulch. The co-op sold me a surprisingly edible strawberry cheesecake, so all was not lost, and we ate our unexpected dinner over Red Nose Celebrity Strictly Cum Dancing (yes, yes; I know, but it was worth it to see Robert Webb doing Flashdance in drag: utterly splendid, and Good Legs too). Seeing Dick and Dom doing a surprisingly good Blues Brothers routine led to an inevitable movie choice (though The Commitments came a close second and will have to be watched soon).
Today, I've put more laundry out, changed the pond filters and put badblocks to work on 500GB of SATA disc - our in-house server barfed on it being added to its RAID, but I'm hoping (and from other evidence, expecting) that the disc's fine and the problem lies with (perm from) the controller/PSU/cable. Yesterday's photos are on flickr, and I'm left to wonder about the uses to which this might be put, out in the wild as it were (link courtesy ed_dirt).
Another cup of Keemun now, I think.
