Note to pretty-much everyone. If you have an iPhone 13 you really don't need to upgrade to an iPhone 14. You're welcome.

Thank goodness we’ve got lovely neighbours! This one is an engineer on flight simulator machines so was very handy to have to around as had a toolkit etc.

Well that was a palaver. Had been in the office today and when I got back to the car I saw the lights were on. I must have knocked the switch as I got out but that meant the battery was flat so car wouldn’t start. The battery is knackered anyway. So call my wife to ask about the car recovery we get with our bank account. She ends up coming with our neighbours to jump start the car. After ages with the jump leads we haven’t got anywhere so go and buy and new battery. Fit it and bingo!

Need to go and see this exhibition on how the countryside has inspired artists over the years. A trip to Pellant House in Chichester is on the cards then.

If you were going round to knock on a neighbour’s door to talk to them how long would you wait for them to answer? 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes? Only asking as I saw our bonkers neighbour knock on another neighbour’s door and then wait 15 minutes for an answer. 15 minutes!! WTF?

Mind you. This young black man was shot dead in his car in cold blood by the Met Police. His crime - err well they're still thinking about that
