Right then. Thursday-usually a good day. Friday imminent, the weekend very near and everything in the garden is fragrant (or rotting slowly because of neglect, one of the two). And I don't need to read a book today! That's right. Not a page needs to be turned (apart from the Robert Harris for book club which I suppose undermines that a little). Instead I'm seeing the new Tom Hanks movie Captain Phillips and I'm just a little excited about it. Not only is TH my fave interview ever but Paul Greengrass has directed and anyone who saw the last 2 Bourne movies, or Green Zone will know what a classy line up that is. I'll get back to you...
And if that wasn't enough, Nigel turns up with a fancy root veg gratin for tea. Good day!
And after the Sir Ben Ainslie inspired win for the USA over New Zealand for the Americas Cup yesterday, coming back from 8-1 down to win 9-8, I think COME BACKS will keep  our creative juices flowing.
Have a crisis-free, achievement-filled Thursday, see you after 5.

    A quick reply to Billie. Thanks for the poem by the way.

    I think it was a week last Tuesday I mentioned a trip up to Scotland for work, it was accompanying my boss, so she could attend a Golden Wedding Anniversary. A right nice do it was too. It was also very warm up there, short sleeves all weekend. And the train journey on the East Coast line, I couldn't sit still in my seat for excitement. The views were simply breathtaking...... needless to say, I was very busy with my camera.

    Snappy Days :)

    Good Morning Simon, Team and Blogpoppets

    I don't know whether this week's themes have been particularly difficult, or whether my brain is turning to mush. I suspect the latter...

    There is a great song that fits on the new Kings of Leon album but too recent to be included methinks...

    COMEBACK STORY - KINGS OF LEON

    And a real oldie, sung wonderfully, of course, by The Boss

    KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE - BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

    And this is a good one too...

    EYE ON THE PRIZE - JOE COCKER
