  1. Not strictly on TV, but I finally got around to watching 'The Hollow Crown' on DVD last night which was first broadcast by the BBC in the summer. I watched the first episode, Richard II with Ben Whishaw. His performance, the whole production left me speechless. Even if you don't like Shakespeare I would urge you to watch this. It's so captivating you can't take your eyes away from the screen.
  2. I'm about half-an-hour away from Leek. I don't think I've walked The Manifold Valley. I did lots of walks in the Peak District when I lived in Sheffield (I lived on the side that borders the Peak District). I'm not sure where exactly, except it was bloody hard work but worth it for the views.
  3. ^^Maybe I should, I hadn't thought of that.
  4. It's snowing lightly here. I took this photo from the bottom of my garden this morning.
  5. I put on a pair of boots this morning that I haven't worn since last winter, and I felt something in the toe. I took them off expecting to find a stone, and a pound coin dropped on the floor.
  6. I'm looking forward to watching the final episode of 'Merlin' tonight on BBC 1. Then I will be watching the sequel to 'The Snowman', The Snowman and the Snow Dog'. I know, I'm a big kid, but I like to watch something festive on Christmas eve.
  7. I watched a the film 'Another Earth' last night. I was worried that it was going to prententious nonsense like 'The Tree of Life', but it was a really interesting and thought provoking flim about redemption.
  8. Today it's just Dairylea and some cherry tomatoes, and a couple of pickled onions on the side.
  9. Getting my hair cut. Nothing drastic, just an inch off the ends, but I feel like a new woman.
  10. I'm having my brunch. Mixed seed Ryvita, a packet of cheesy Wotsists, and an apple for good measure.
  11. ^^I had a crap secret Santa present too, a fork the swivels round so you can eat spaghetti without moving your hand. It's in a bag ready to go to the charity shop.
  12. I love my Christmas tree, and getting out all my decorations. I have a traditional colour theme of gold, red and and green. The only thing I never look forward to is untangling the tree lights. Mr. Magic normally deals with them, and then I get to do the fun bit. It took him nearly 2 hours to get them untangled this year. Then when we switched them on they didn't work! There was a loose bulb, and they are now on the tree looking very 'magical'. I also have a wreath. I made my own wreath this year which was lots of fun.
  13. I had a great evening last night. I had some friends round to watch Celebration Day. They are Zep heads but hadn't seen it. It's such an amazing show, it just seems to get better and better, and I keep noticing new things.
  14. Waiting for Ikea to deliver my shelving unit. Then I'm off to my work Christmas party tonight.
  15. Most parts of the country might get a light covering. Nothiing to worry about I think since it's going milder at the weekend.
  16. It's really foggy here too. I was driving home late last night with my other half on the country roads in the freezing fog. That wasn't a fun experience at all. He was doing the driving. I just kept praying that we'd make it home alive! Snow is forecast for tomorrow.
  17. ^^Yes, happy birthday Kiwi!! As I mentioned to you, I was offline on Sunday so I missed your birthday. I'm just glad so many members here remembered. I hope you had a great day.
  18. It's pretty chilly here too and still frosty this afternoon.
  19. Not a meal, but I'm consuming aniseed balls at the moment. They're quite hard to to find these days. I was in one of those old fashioned sweet shops on Sunday and bought a couple of bags.
  20. I will Kate, thank you. Poor Danny having to wait, but I'm sure it will make his Christmas! Send him my very best wishes.
  21. My copy of 'Celebration Day' finally arrived in the post. I nearly hugged my postman when I saw that Amazon package in his hands. My next door neighbours, a lovely retired couple, have just gone away for a few days so 'Celebration Day' will be played at an appropiate volume tonight without me worrying about disturbing them. Somehow I don't think they're Zep heads! 'My, my, my, I'm so happy, I'm gonna join the band'.
  22. ^Hi Kate What a great picture. Any idea where this was taken? I don't recognise the building.
