It would appear that our short-lived 'summer' has run out of steam as today feels thoroughly autumnal.
A steady, light, mizzly, drizzly rain has been falling steadily all morning, and there's a damp, dreich mist in the air.
Of course this matters not a jot as I have a To Do list as long as my arm to tackle today, almost all of it computer based, so I have a feeling I'm going to be prey to the displacement goblins, several of which are gathered around my laptop already, waiting to pounce if my attention to the task in hand wavers even slightly.
See what I mean......
You might remember this disreputable duo from an earlier post.
They occasionally answer to the names of Vern and Malcolm, but usually an "OI.... YOU!" will suffice to gain their attention.
They have an unerring ability to sense when my focus might wander, and they're suddenly right THERE in a puff of demonic red smoke.
Here's Vern successfully attempting to distract my attention, declaiming his 'hilarious' rendition of Hamlet's soliloquy.... "To wee, or not to wee", which as he was sitting on the edge of my tea mug at the time was both extremely distracting and worrying.
I have the feeling it's going to be another l-o-n-g day.....
