Hey Blogsters. What gives ?

Chris Evans | 06:03 UK time, Monday, 29 October 2012

It's 5.56 on Monday morning - and now, it's not just me and a few other undeserving showbiz types who have been to see Mr Bond in action. The Twittersphere has been alive with nuggets of joy from the increasing thousands who are now party to all the shhh. . . moments. Some poor souls are pretending to try to find fault with Skyfall but I can smell their synthesis. Ne'er mind, there's always going to be someone who claims not to like steaming hot apple pie with melting ice cream. Imagine being one of those !

Not us my friends. Not us.

Have a fab week.

Peace and Love.

CE

    Well, Look who it is!!

    So lovely to see you here Chris.

    I want to see Skyfall! Think that might be an outing this week. Kids are off school and I'm off work so a chilled week for all of us!!

    Although it is Boy1's 16th birthday this week and I seem to have ended up being the one who is going to take him and some friends to one of these horror maze type things that spring up at this time of the year! EEEK!

    Hello Chris & Everyone.

    It must have been great to have been at the Skyfall premier Chris. Daniel Craig is a local Wirral boy who has done rather well for himself. I know I should support my fellow Wirralians but I have to say that my own favourite James Bond was Pierce Brosnan.

    I can't say much today as I'm feeling too heartbroken about the passing of my little cat Tom.

    The weather's sunny but cold here!

    Chris!! Welcome back - you have been sorely missed. xx

    Skyfall for us this week, too, before I end up finding out too much about it!

    Hope everyone is ok.

    Maddy: lots of love to you. xx

    The Blog is back - hurrah!

    good mornig all,

    Really great to see you back Chris ,have been passing by most days to see if you had popped by and hey !!! a red alert from susan to say you had .

    Now ,I am going to hold my hand up here ,I'm not that much of a bond fan ...not our Bond from over the pond but of the films ...so I may not be going to see it ,but on the other hand I have offered to take Ken ,that's if he wants to go . Bearing in mind we've only been to the cinima together twice in thirty odd years ,so you can guess what the out come may be..:-))

    I hope that Tash and the boys are well and I bet they are groowing up fast now ,and I suppose Noah will be getting excited about Halloween ,Eli I think is a wee bit too small just yet ..

    Right must be off things to be getting on with ..take care all and Chris ...thanks again ...

    Hello Christoph,

    Great to see you - I knew you wouldn't give up on us xx

    Oh I can't wait to see Mr Bond in action hoping to see it this week, I've loved sharing your excitement.

    Maddy - sending you a big {{{{hug}}}}

    I'm going to be moving very soon - yes Annie finally getting away from the psycho neighbour! So a fun couple of weeks ahead of me but well worth it, I have a great view from the flat I have at the moment but the one I'm moving to has an even better one over farmland and the Clydevalley and I have a garden too! Can you tell I'm excited? ;o) xx

    Have a good folks!

    Afternoon CLP. Hey it's great to get a blog from you, thank you so much.

    As someone who only ever goes to the cinema about once every ten years , I may break with tradition and go and see this film. As long as everyone is quiet and not munching and crunching, I think I may have the patience to sit it out.

    Maddie, Am thinking of you xx

    Right, must dash , take care everyone.
    bye for now

    Hi Chris,

    There are some joyless souls out there.
    Thanks to Bids, I ain't one of em!

    Took the boy to the Top Gear Live show yesterday courtesy of the wonderful Bids and got a picture of him next to the Lotus that you see Richard Hammond in on the adverts - you know, the one underwater....
    Sadly, I'm going to miss it tonight as me and the CMM are off to see Skyfall.
    So looking forward to it. Daniel Craig is easily my favourite Bond and this has nothing to do with the fact that......stand back for a name drop......we share a hairdresser.
    Probably explains the similarities...

    Said hairdresser is also the Soho Joe that Chris spoke to last Movember.
    I'm getting involved with Movember this year and in an almost incredible piece of synchronicity (given the Daniel Craig, Soho Joe, Chris Evans links), I will be outing myself as a secret ginger!!
    Lord knows why, but that's the colour my face fuzz grows.

    Any of you getting involved in it?

    Not you Deevs!

    I'm gorn

    Chris,

    Went to see Skyfall yesterday at The Big Screen, formerly the IMAX in Birmingham. Excellent film. Craig and Connery the best 2 Bonds by a distance, both in different ways. Great that nobody seems to be plot spoiling.
    I shall be partaking in Movember. The moustache will be brown, unlike any beard I ever grow, which is grey.
    See you soon folks....

    Good day Chris and everyone else,

    On holiday today as it's my Mum and Dad's 50th Wedding anniversary and we are going out for dinner, so I got to hear the whole show this morning - which was great!

    I'm with Bids, I was never a fan of Bond, however I have enjoyed the last 2 Daniel Craig ones and we will definately go and see this one, we will wait a week or so till things calm down a bit.

    Maddy - So sorry to hear about Tom, sending you a big hug {{{{}}}}.

    Mary - Good luck with the new house, please take a photo of the view from your window for us.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Afternoon all!
    Thought I would pop in following the warning order from Suse, on the darkside of the bloggers facecloth page!

    I shan't be joining the movember caterpillar growing as my own non-shaving efforts end up with a Gary Neville-esque dirty mark, rather than a Melchett soup strainer (baaaaaa)!

    I do like Daniel Craig as Bond, definitely moodier, darker more sinister, but Pierce Brosnan played the sarcastic humour, and suave agent much better IMHO.

    Must confess that I'm shocked that Rips has a hairdresser!!!!! Hairdresser, George Michael fan, Ginger-tached! Time to come clean Rips, you're Chris' love-child aren't you???

    Afternoon each!

    What a lovely surprise for a grey Monday...CLP is back!

    Bond..have persuaded the GM that he needs to finish work early on Wednesday so we can go see it (my day off already). Having never having seen any Bond prior to the Pierce Brosnan ones I am now a proper convert! (The GM has decided he will `educate` me by making me watch the earlier ones over the dark and urgh winter months!). Thank you to everyone for not giving any plots away... roll on Weds!

    Marje, so sorry to hear abot Tom... hugs x

    Mary, how exciting! Good luck with the `flit`!

    Right..must get back to it..couldnt resist popping in tho!

    Huzzah CLP is back. Thanks Mr Evans thought you had forgotten us.

    Looking forward to the James Bond special tonight on TG. I think I might have to drag myself to the flicks for a bit of daniel craig, normally you wouldnt get me unless you pulled me there by my hair as I have the concentration span of a goldfish............ what was I saying. Oh yes filums I may give it a go as I seem to be getting pulled into the hype.

    Glad to see the men folk are taking part in Movember this year. If I take part if will be purely accidental and could be down to hormone levels more than anything else as I should strictly be unable to take part. Good luck to all of those growing and all of those kissing... Uuu Hum!

    Mr CB had a moustache when I met him I told him to shave it off as I hated it, but when he did it looked plain weird, so he grew it back. Then about 5 years ago he shaved it off for good I took about a week to notice. You couldnt get him to grow it back now if you tried.

    Ps - Im not really an apple pie person, but I can do a crumble and ice cream if that helps.

    Anyway Hello you lovely lot of bloggers and here's to a good week. Oh and I hope that our american friends are okay after the lashing of Hurricane Sandy which is heading their way.

    CLP has blogged for us today ......

    :-)

    Hi everyone

    ... and you Rips.

    Yes, as said in post #11 above from the love of my life, we went to see Skyfall yesterday. And yes, the screen at The Big Screen is BIG! Massive. Giant. The fillum was rather good too - and that's from someone who's never really "got" the whole Bond thing.

    Anyone remember Daniel Craig when he was in Our Friends In The North. That was such an excellent drama. Wouldn't mind seeing it again.

    I've been networking this morning and my weight loss was noted - 10lbs since 1st October so far. It's weigh-in night tonight so let's se what the scales have in store.

    I've just got back from a long walk with Randall. We tried a head collar to attempt to alleviate the pulling and .................................. it worked! He fought against it a little bit but the walk was so much better and I'm not in agony from being pulled by a 20kg Springer, which is a first.

    I've also been advised to look into a raw food diet for him - anyone got any info/views on this?

    Right, a new client to research, and some old clients to service, if you know what I mean!

    Good to have you back Chris - see you soon.

    Afternoon Ter CLP & ALL Bloggers...

    Bingo Star 'ere...

    CLP - Nice to have you back after such a long time away from your blog!!!!
    I really did think you'd given up blogging!!!!!!
    Great to have you back... I many more blogging days will follow from yersen ;-))))
    Yes The Bond film another thing that shows us us Brits are best at doing stuff!!!!!!
    Long after the likes of StarWars or Jaws 'as gone... Still this brilliant idea for a movie partly based on true life but with added pinache!!!!!!!!!
    A can see where they got the idea for 'er Majesty dropping in at the olympics came from.... Skyfall INDEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On my end much much sadness over the weekend as I lost my little friend of 13 years!!!!!
    Sadly we had to have our cat put to sleep after a few months of kidney troubles!!!!!!!

    A VERY difficult decision of when to put have your pet put to sleep but neverless a very peaceful and calm way to go!!!!!!!!
    Watched my little friend slip away.... So fast, so peaceful.... Gets me thinking why us humans have to go on in pain and suffer for so long after our minds or bodies have long left us when we get old!!!!!

    NEVER did my little friend break my heart, play selfish evil games with my feelings, lie to me or just use me for money!!!!!!!
    I thank god that on this wonderful beautiful world yet often cold and heartless world.... If you know how to.... You can enjoy the unconditional love and friendship that these animals ALWAYS give you if you give them just a little of your time!!!!!!!!!!

    R.I.P to Tom xxx

    For any who think i'm silly or stupid.... A grown man upset over just a cat!!!!!
    I'm just happy that I have a good enough heart to understand what a heart is for and how to use it.... And the same with animals ;-)))
    For any who've never had a proper pet... My advice get one you they really do bring so much for so little in this modern materialistic world!!!!!!

    Bingo, I feel your pain, I've been through it twice in the last 4 years, and I fear will go through it again in the not too distant as my old girl is now 18. I don't think any of your friends on here will think you silly, we have had many occasions where other bloggers have gone through this with furry friends!

    Take comfort in the good times you had and the paw prints left on your heart!

    Evening all, I've been trying to return to here for weeks now - thought it'd all closed down?
    Phew it still rolls on.

    Hopefully going to see JB tomorrow with the lovely MrsW. It's half-term and we've both got the week off but the ankle-biters are booked into a mini-Olympics day tomorrow so we're spending a (rare) day alone. Mind you the teenie-bopper will probably come with us to eat all the popcorn.

    Hope you're all well out there.
    I've changed jobs recently, well teams to be precise. Still doinf the same thing but with a much nicer bunch of people. Lovin' it again having not been enjoying work for a while.
    Still plodding the streets trying to keep the weight down and fitness levels up. I wantedto lose 2 stone which I'm 1lb away from achieving. I have a CRUK golden bond place for 2013 London marathon which I'll be doing in memory of the first MrsW. Totally bricking it though. Booked my hotel lastnight. Anyone stayed at the Aloft London excel? Any blogger reviews?

    Anyway enough about me, how y'all doing?

    Hi all

    So good to see some old and newer faces here. Thanks for the new blog Chris. Can't say that I am a fan of Bond, the last one I saw in a cinema was 'The Spy who Loved Me' (that ages me somewhat doesn't it). With any luck, given the usual turnaround of DVD releases, I wouldn't be surprised if the latest effort is not being shown on flights by the time I go away in March next year - mind you I don't expect everybody to keep quiet about it until then.....

    Bingo, nothing to be ashamed of, as DD said, quite a few of us have experienced the loss of a pet and know how it affects you. I'm sure the 'Rainbow Bridge' is as applicable to cats as it is to dogs. ((((hugs)))) to you and MM.

    As the nights are now well and truly drawing in, it is time for the winter season of our quiz league to start tonight - a home match to ease us in.

    Evening all!

    Thanks for the new blog Chistoph, I was really starting to wonder if we had heard the last form you on here! I for one an delighted to read you latest ramble....

    I am not a cinema goer if I am honest, I never seem to find the time, this week I only have Wednesday evening off and too many things for me to catch up on to think about heading off out in the cold again. I have heard plenty of very good reports from friends and family, not to mention a certain DJ in the morning mentioning it once or twice, ;-) I may see about finding/making a window to watch it.

    Great also to see so many bloggers on here today!

    Much love.....

    Morning all,

    Isn't it great to be back here.

    Really enjoying the show so far, as usual.

    Deevs - we had our dogs on the raw food for a while, it was to put weight on them, which it did, but I hated working with it, we bought the frozed minced variety but it is just horrible to work with and put out for them, give it a go though, you may get on ok with it.

    Doesn't surprise me, what Chris is saying about the sheep dog, good ones sell for a fortune.

    Have a good day.

    Morining All,

    How lovely to see you all on here again.

    Deevs - I feed Henry & Kingston on raw meat most of the time (and also the cats, Lilly & Treacle). We never have any health problems & their coats are always shiny. It started with a dog we had a few years ago - he had a skin condition & as soon as we dropped the tinned food it cleared up. Oh, and cooking the fresh meat doesn't work, it needs to be raw :-) I highly recommend it.

    Bingo & MM - so sorry to hear about Tom, he was well loved and had a good life, always remember that. It hurts so much, doesn't it. [[[ hugs ]]]

    Keep smiling everyone and have a good day

    Hello Gail, Debs, Bids, CG, DD & Chrissie.

    Happy Birthday Keith

    A sunny but cold day here, if it stays like this Ill be happy. Thinking of people in the USA.

    CG-I'm very interested in what you say about feeding dogs raw meat as I had a lovely dog Trixie who had excema (spellcheck telling this is wrong) , we tried all sorts including putting sulphor (wrong again) in the bowl of water but nothing worked. Anyway in 1972 when I was expecting you know who the health nurse said you can't have a dog like that with a new baby. She was only 8 and we had to do the most heartbreaking thing. We ended up at the same practice last weekend where again I walked out heartbroken. I wonder could raw meat have been the answer.

  • Comment number 38.

    Good afternoon dear friends

    Firstly ...... HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEITH! x

    Secondly ..... thank you CG and G on the raw food advice. And Sezza for the link on the other side to a raw food forum. It's definitely looking like a possiblility. I've got a book here to read all about it, how to convert his diet, quantities etc. He's also due to go into the kennels when Nic and I come to London in Nov for CiN so I'll have to check with the kennel if they allow dogs on a raw food diet - I know they're not keen on bones being left with dogs though.

    KW - good luck with the London Marathon, and good for you doing it in memory of the first MrsW.

    Maddy - I'm beginning to doubt some vets. Randall is a 10 month old "typical" Springer - full of life, very mischievious and incredibly lively. We took him to the vet last week for his weight check and to get his medication for flea/worming treatments and they recommended we have his bits cut off to calm him down. I think not! And I'm sorry about your loss (you too Bingles).

    Well, I could sit here chatting to you all for the rest of the afternoon but I really need to start work: ok, I was at a client meeting for 3 hours this morning and then walked Randall and did a couple of housey bits so not been idle!

    Have the rest of a great day.

    MM - I'm sure it would've been the answer. We all treat our animals as part of the family (which they are) - including the way we like to feed them. i.e we cook our food & add gravy therefore we expect our pets to like it too (which of course they do!).but it's far more natural for them as they are carnivores to eat raw meat. Ours do have leftovers, but as a 'treat' not as the main diet.

    I know many may diasagree, but this was recommended by our vet and has stood us in good stead for a long time now.

    Afternoon Everyone,

    Well would you 'adam & eve it', first time I have the opportunity and the inclination to look at Chris's page and lordy lordy a new blog.

    Well done Chris hope you enjoyed your Blog holiday. . . .

    Sorry to say but due to circumstances beyond my control I have not been listening to the radio or looking for a new blog.

    The last time I wrote on the blog I was complaining of a bad headache which I put down to the wine consumed mid-week. How wrong I could be, a day later I was admitted to hospital with what could have developed into a life threatening condition. A week in hospital and 5 weeks at home later I'm well on the mend to enable me to celebrate my daughter's 9th birthday today. Should be back at work next week too, but it does seem like I've been standing still for six weeks, amazing to think Christmas is less than 8 weeks away. Yuk!

    Watched, Graham Norton with the 'Skyfall' trio, Richard Hammond with the car stories but sadly to say it will be sometime until I'm able to go to the cinema.

    Anyway, Happy Birthday to anyone who is celebrating like my daughter however young or old you may feel. And RIP to Tom.

    My brain is still very foggy so having difficulty it taking in huge amounts of info at any one time, so apologies to anyone who had something of interest to say and I missed it. As always must try harder!

    So by for now and love to all. (X)

    It's good to 'see' you here and I'm so pleased to hear that you're recovering well. It does seem like time has stood still for a while after getting home but one thing I find is that we never forget our fellow patients who are in a similar situation. Take care & look after yourself.

    CG-Tom used to ask for raw meat and I always gave him a bit of raw mince when using it. Unfortunately due to being too kind I also shared some food which probably was not good for him. It's a good thing that Daisy doesn't want 'human' food.

    Deevs-you let Randall keep his bits for as long as possible. It's a different matter for cats to prevent scruffs who stay out all night.

    PS I'll tell you a little story about the time I took a photo of Tom in front of other people and had them in fits of laughter. I said 'ham' which made Tom look at me as he knew the word. Ham instead of cheese :-) Yes I know I'm mad :-)

  • Comment number 46.

    Maddy, lol! We get a similar reaction at the word "chicken" from our 2 cats. You're not mad, you're cat trained!

    CG-looking back at my reply to you I seem to come over as a bit know-it-all, I didn't mean to. I agree with you wholeheartedly that it must be more natural for carnivore animals to eat raw meat. What I meant by food which is probably not good for pets I was referring to processed ham, chicken, etc.

    LOL DD!

    Hello everyone!

    Well, I can't afford to go to the cinema to see Skyfall... But I DO know what happens in the end - bl**dy h*ll!! And Daniel Craig is definitely inspired casting!

    Did you know, it's only about 7 weekends left until Chrimble?! Can I put in a request for another Deevs Advent-Calendar this year (easy on the mince pies)?!

    Here's a Roo-made-up-joke (sorry if it's been used elsewhere before... I'm out of touch) - What does Miss Moneypenny eat at Christmas? Mince-spies....

    I apologise sincerely and unreservedly.... ;-)

    Keep smiling!

    Good morning all,

    Sharon - glad to hear you are on the mend, take care.

    Has anyone heard from Bondy yet?

    We had the most torrential rain last night, the lane is flooded this morning.

    Deevs - Just shows how we all differ, as soon as is possible, we have all of our animals "done", male or female, cats or dogs. All this talk of the raw meat, I may give it another go with Glaid and Denny.

    Have a great day.

    CLP loving Noah and his scary voice, I bet he is really going to enjoy Halloween today - I hope you are taking him trick or treating, me I've got lots of little treats in case I get visited, theres not so many kiddies on my close these days though.

    Sharon, sounds like you have had a bad time recently but glad that you are on the mend and able to celebrate with your daughter.

    Right lots to do today so best get a wiggle on - also getting a bit worried that Skyfall is not going to live up to my expectations now with all the OMGs going on about it.....

    Morning Gail,Debs ,and Bingo ...a grey start to our day here on the south coast ,and wondering if we'll have as many treaters tonigh as the rain I think will deter us .
    Debs ,we had loads last year and I actully ran out of sweets so had to raid the fruit bowl and the fridge for yogurts,got exta for tonight ,little devils wont catch me out ...lol..

    Sharon ,here's hoping a speedy recovery for you and take it easy and if your not ready to go back to work dont go ,unless youreally have to ..

    Right folks have a good day and take care and stay safe .

    Hi everyone:

    It really is great to see so much activity on the blog - long may it continue!

    Sharon: how absolutely awful for you. Sounds like you are getting much better, but take it easy - you have obviously had a very serious illness. I agree with Bids - only go back to work if you really have to - we forget how exhausting going to work can be after an illness. Hope your daughter had a lovely birthday. xx

    Maddy: I absolutely agree, if you have been in hospital, when you do get home, you always think about the patients who are still there.

    Hope everyone is fine today - Happy Halloween!

    As an awful version of The Time Warp came on the radio this morning, I moaned!

    Then, 10 seconds in, Chris turned it off and said it was so bad he wouldn't lay it!!!

    Morning!

    Hehe, Sezza, that version of the Time Warp (school disco classic) was by "Damian" - I remember it well... falls into the SO cr*p it's almost good category, but I'm glad CE pulled it - the raw disgust in his voice was hilarious!

    Vassos definitely had the scariest laugh on the echo-mike... there are probably traumatised kiddies up and down the land.

    I think I'm going to pretend to be out tonight. I'm happy to give the local kids sweets as I know them (they used to come 'round to play with Jasper in our little garden), but I feel awful when I've run out. Last year I worked out that if I'd given all the trick-or-treaters who came calling a few sweets, it would've cost me about £40!! :-o

    Bit of Jasperwe'en trivia for you - did you know that the original Jack o' Lanterns used to be carved out of turnips...? Gisèle wants to have a carved pumpkin for a little Gizmowe'en, but Betty is exceptionally gassy at the moment, so I don't think I dare risk it....

    Keep smiling!

    Good Morning Everyone.

    Sunny but cold here, it was still earlier but the wind is getting up now. Nothing to complain about though when we think of USA.

    Like you Roo I think I'm going to pretend to be out tonight. I'm not an old scrooge (or should that be witch) but I've found that when you give treats the word seems to get around and you have to keep opening the door all evening.

    Off soon to have my flu jab, left it a bit late this year as I usually have it in September.

    MM and Roo I too am erring on the 'being out' side especially as our living room bit is at the back of the house so it doesn't really look like we are in (except for the car in the drive!)

    afternoon peeps - it's taken until today to have a chance to read the blog and catch up on all your doings!

    Good luck to the Movember chaps - if I don't get busy with the tweezers I could well give you both a run for your money - including a goatee!!

    As for those of you taking on strenuous fundraising - you have my admiration (and will in due course, my donation)

    Raw food for pets? Honey has the fatty/gristley (sp) bits I cut of meat/poultry but she also has dried & 'wet' food plus leftovers - she particularly likes to play in the garden with the remnants of corn on the cob, holding them in her paws and nibbling like a human would!

    Scones - always jam first as you can spread cream on jam but how do you spread semi-solid jam on soft cream??

    Halloween - I can't remember having pumkins as a child but definitely hollowed out a swede and put a stubby piece of candle in it and I seem to remember doing the same with huge potatoes. Times were obviously hard back in the 60's!

    Right back to it ...

    Evening bloggers, well it's been an age since I last blogged, was probably around the time of the Edinburgh Blog meet...

    Well since then I spent ten weeks on secondment in London with work, and what an amazing time I had. My time coincided with both the Olympics and Paralympics; there was an amazing buzz around the capital throughout, I even managed to catch some Olympic action live, as well as finding a lovely park with a big screen and a fab food village next to City Hall. I have to say that I loved CLPs shows during this time, they really got me into the Olympic spirit.

    The Olympics seems so long ago now though, I've been back in Edinburgh for about 3 weeks, and I'm missing London badly. It really has got me thinking about long term plans, and the possibility of a move back south of the border. In the meantime I've got a flying visit back to London planned for mid December, for a spot of C*******s shopping.

    Not seen Skyfall yet, but am planning on doing so. I loved Casino Royale, but was disappointed with Quantum of Solace, so have high hopes for this one. Loved Graham Norton the other night; how lucky was Judi Dench to be sitting in a Daniel Craig/Javier Bardem sandwich!

    Hope all is well in blogland

    Didnt have many tricksters last night - I think the pouring rain dampened their spirits, so I am now left with 40+ mini m@rs bars!

    Right last day of work for me for 6 working days so lots to get finished off so that my brain can properly switch off at 5.30 tonight.

    I think we may have a good supply of sweeties for CiN this year!

    We didn't have many Tricky Treaters last night either so I have heaps of parma violets and love hearts left!

    We did have fireworks being set off on the field behind us last night - I've just been picking up the remains! - and I didn't realise my little dog could bark so loud or for so long! Every snap, crackle and pop set him off! I ended up sitting on the floor beside him for ages!

    Hello Chris & Everyone.

    Wet, windy & sunny here on the Wirral peninsula! Heating is on!

    Chris, it was lovely to get a new blog from your goodself on Monday despite being very busy with many other things going on in your life but is that it for a while?

    I have to say also that apart from mentioning my fellow Wirralian Daniel Craig I haven't actually replied properly. Apologies!

    I myself don't care for sitting in a cinema, the last time being when I took my little boy to see ET, I much prefer to watch films in the comfort of my own home where I'm free to have cups of tea & snacks and go to the loo without disturbing anyone. Then there's the added risk of picking up a cold from someone (there's always somebody coughing & sneezing). However having heard all the good reviews about Skyfall I think I could be tempted to go and have a look.

    Re steaming hot apple pie and melting ice cream! I like my apple pie & ice cream cold.
    I'm not one of those people who complain about everything though, I've met those people a few times, the ones who actually enjoy complaining as it seems to make them feel important. Very sad!

    afternoon all, hope you're well?

    Damp, dull & dreary this afternoon in Norfolk.
    Took the ankle-biters 10 pin bowling this morning which was great fun.

    Eldest daughter had her first interview for college yesterday morning and was offered a place there and then - all great 'til they came out and told dad (me) who swelled with pride and shed a tear or two. Cue humiliated daughter and laughing tutor. We did giggle about it on the way home though. Well, it'snot everyday it happens is it??

    Trickin' and a treatin' last night was fun, followed by a trio to carrow Road as my beloved Spurs were in town - oooops, shame they couldn't win but nonetheless a good night was had.

    Is CLP's just a sporadic blogger now?

    "Let the skyfoe

    Face it all together . . ."

    Loving that song and I can't wait to see the film tomorrow evening in my little local picture house. I used to dismiss James Bond films as a load of old sexist nonsense, having been made to watch them in the seventies and eighties on Christmas Day afternoons, but then I saw Casino Royale and changed my mind. It was superb. I'm very excited about this one.

    If any of you happened to see Young Apprentice tonight, I just want to confirm that I'm actually wearing my Swimsuit Kimono as I write. It's very nice, but a bit pinchy up top.

    Hope you're all well.

    Barmy - Loving your lyrics, did you hear Vanessa talking about it?

    Maybe we will get to see Skyfall next week. Near us, the cinema had to be evacuated half way through the movie the other night as a workman had cut through a gas cable in a street near by.

    First day of a week and a bit off for me - still awake at silly o'clock but I dont mind that - means you can pack more in to each day :-)

    Will not have the laptop this weekend as our lovely daughter has borrowed it, as hers is "playing up". I will be lost without it!

    My instincts have just been confirmed! I was switching off the tv after watching Coronation Street when I must have accidentally pressed the 4. I caught the end of a silly dating show called Baggage hosted by Gok Wan (I never watch him as I can't stand the little creep). It's not that he's gay, arrogant or that he persuades women to take off their clothes, it's just that there's something nasty about him.

    Anyway at the end of this ridiculous show were a couple talking to Gok, the lad was telling the story of how when he arrived home his partner had to tell him that she had accidentally killed the cat. The three of them were laughing thinking this was hilarious. What empty soul less excuses for human beings these three despicable pieces of s*i* are! I was certainly right in my instincts regarding Gok Wan

    It's not what it was ni - good to see you venturing on here again though.

    I can't say I've ever seen a Gok show - I've seen trailers and his style has never appealed to me. I can see where you are coming from MM and it must have been hard especially this week.

    I've just watched Marley and me - the end is a real tearjerker (and it's supposed to be a comedy....) it brought back some painful memories to me as well.

    Anyway, I've had my wine and G&T (not necessarily in that order) and I've got to get up early to be pampered (it's a hard life !!!).

    Well I can confirm that I am another Skyfall fan... and Javier Bardem is just amazing! Sezza, enjoy..as has everyone else I know who`s seen it so far! We went on Wed night to avoid the trick or treaters.. sounds horrible I know but we are literally up every 2 minutes at our house and it makes for a grumpy GM so always safer to be out!

    Working today but busy weekend with family and friends planned so looking forward to that.... bit cold up here though and will be outside most of tomorrow so shall make sure my scarf,hat and gloves are upon my person!

    Nope, still not bothered about going to see Skyfall, even with the hype. Sezza, I think it will be a while before you can actually talk about it though....

    btw, great impression Barmy - you've got Adele down to a tee..

    Now for another dilemma. I'm not in the country during CIN week so will miss the auction for the drive and dine. Obviously, I do not have the sort of cash available to actually make a bid (unless the eurolottery comes up trumps...) but I do want to enter the raffle (or whatever it's called) for the dine and disco. I can't remember if the contact details were on the programme home page or FB last year (if so I can pick them up and try via skype). Does anybody else remember?

    Nearly time to go to bed, so I'll sign off now.

    A bright sunny day down here on the south coast at the moment anyway ,as there is some fluffy clouds around so not perfect wall to wall blue.

    It's been a busy w/end in the Bids household finishing off my autumn deep clean ,doesn't half make you feel good ,but banjaxed the next day .

    Nothing in the diary for me today so might pop out and do some shopping a bit later ,I do need a couple of things and I might just have a look around for some X**s ideas.

    Now all this talk of (Bond) I'm going to see what the girls have to report as they have both seen it before I decide to venture out to see it and drag Ken kicking and screaming ..and believe me he will .

    Mtd ,where are you off to this time ,hopefully some where a bit dryer and warmer !! enjoy anyway and safe travels .

    That reminds me I hope our Friend Bond over the other side of the pond is safe and well after Sandy ,she really did kick up a storm didn't she .

    well no use me sitting hear chatting when I need to be getting motivated is it and I'm sure you'd like to read some other posts ...ok ...I'm going ...

    Hi everyone:

    Just checking in to say "hi" - I have absolutely nothing to report - so boring!
    Right now, it's all work and no play which is pretty rubbish, but it's just the way things are at the moment.

    mtd: I honestly can't remember what happened with the raffle thingy last year. I want to say it was on Chris's website, because I was so seldom on FB then. But, just to be on the safe side, check both! Not long until your holiday - you must be getting very excited!

    Very cold here today, and apparently it's going to be freezing this evening for the fireworks displays. As much as I loved it when the three of us went to organised displays when MsS was young, I am very grateful I won't be out in the cold tonight!

    Remember, remember the 5th of November!

    Why don't you just come out and say that you can't be bothered with this blog anymore.

    It would be more honest of you to do so rather than just keep people hanging on with a blog every month or so.

    Blogs are old technology, the likes of Facebook and Twitter has killed them off.

    Hope everyone's well and happy. We're finally going to see Skyfall tonight. There is a tiny cinema opposite our new abode and apparently it's just like sitting in your lounge so it could be interesting! And it's half the price of going to the larger cinema in town so all good hopefully.

    Hi everyone:

    Hope all's well.

    I was SO grateful this morning to wake up to rain! Last night, after work, I had a wee visit to my b-i-l, I got home around 9pm and it was icy cold. I thought: good grief, this will be horrendous in the morning. But, thankfully, the temperature rose overnight and I was singing in the rain going to the train station!

    Jilly: how lovely to see you - I have been thinking about you - 2012 has been such a difficult year for you, I hope things are a little better. xx Thank you, the hairdresser situation went fairly well, but when you hear her say "I'll just cut your hair to the nape of your neck" you think: I am going to have a halo instead of hair! Not to worry, it seems ok!

    Still haven't made it to Skyfall - not enough hours in the day at the moment. Jilly, that wee cinema sounds like the business - I hate the great big cinemas!

    Hope everyone is ok.

    Good morning all,

    Blue skies and beautiful sun shine greeted me this monring when I rose ,and no frost to boot so good news from me .

    Crissie ,so I hope it's the same for you minus the rain ,like you I dread this time of year for the frost and the ice ,just wish I could hibernate,wouldn't that be grand.

    MTD ,hope that you enjoy your holibob ...

    Debs ,Is your week off going to plan ,I do hope that you're having lots of you time :-)).

    One more thing before I go ..one of our lovely bloggers has a little one that is poorley at the moment so I don't normally ask for your prayers ,but I'm asking (please) if you could say one for this little person to hope the recovery come swiftly .

    I thank you ....Take care and have a good day all. Bids ..XXX

    Chrissie & Debs - thank you x

    We didn't get to the cinema last night after all ..... I had four telephone calls in a row when I got home (happy ones, thankfully!) which, together, lasted over two hours, and by the time 'im indoors came home I'd only just got the dinner on the go. We're planning to go this evening now, and I won't answer the phone until dinner is underway!

    Chrissie - like you, I really don't like the large cinemas. Our local Vue cinema charges £10 a seat, whereas the little one over the road is only £5. I appreciate the seats may not be as comfy or as plentiful, or the screen quite as big, but it's so close I could almost go there in my onesie and slippers and no-one would notice. Ooh, there's a thought .... !!

    Bids - I'll say a prayer for the little one x

    Have a good day one and all - the sun's shining here - hurrah!

    Hi everyone:

    It's fair to say, isn't it, that we have a very, very quiet blog again!

    mtd: happy holiday! You have NO idea how much I wish it were me and MrS being away!

    Debs: nice to see you, too! Hope you are enjoying your week off - just lovely to have some freedom. And, enjoy the baby cuddles - last time I held a baby (a niece's wee boy - five years ago) I did not have a single clue what to do with the wee soul. How MsS made it to 21 is anyone's guess!

    Bids: after reading your post, I stopped what I was doing and said a prayer for the wee one. I sincerely hope everything will be ok and that he/she recovers very soon. xx Yes, indeed Bids, hibernation would be wonderful. Particularly if we make sure we have enough red wine and nibbles to keep us going!

    Happy Wednesday everyone - another week flying past!

    xx
