I distinctly remeber a post from you years ago where you said you never bothered to go out in sunshine and only shot with overcast skies, where I like nothing better than blazing sunshine with a cristal clear atmosphere

Forget the 'highlight tools' and whatnot. If the light is hard, just accept that the shadows wil be very dark and change composition accordingly. In other words, different types of light, different types of photos. In images, this is what I mean:
