A slow day. A one show Friday. Might even fit in a nap somewhere along the way. And all in the cause of hitting the ARF-high needed at 5pm. I will be as focused and disciplined as a high-performance athlete, albeit one that might have chips at lunch.
The cold continues to make its slow inexorable progress through my finely-honed body. Eyes-streaming, and hanky-dabbing, I made it through yesterday with the occasional sympathetic glance from Matt, Rebecca and Sally. The 2 Aussie Rules guys looked as though I might have been a danger to their sporting prowess (which I may well have been) and Nigel was so busy being 1) late and 2) waving his horrible mushrooms around that he wouldn't have noticed.
So we move on.
The weekend is almost here, there is shopping and washing to be done (yes I will be the one doing it). No movie show as the other one takes half terms off (lightweight) so just the all requester to sort. How about an opening song from (picks year at random, blindfold, terms and conditions apply) 1988? Might be tough.
Have a healthy and sneeze free Friday! See you at 5.

    Supper was Delicious! Mr. Davies was - as always - very entertaining and very edjificashional.

    ppst.................... His cravat was slightly array! Ha!

    I KBoarded "The Dam Busters' March" - not for any Patrionic Reasons - but because its the theme on which "I'll Never Stop Loving You" - Doris Day - is based - and I can play it rather well. Then I played Avril Lavigne's "I'm with You". Then I made an
    attempt at "My Sharrona" which was pathetic - even though I've played it perfectly many times before.

    We've tried to work out why this is so - sometimes I can play brilliantly and other times I'm battling against the keyboard - He's called Sparky - and we can't work out why. Tiredness must come into it - as must Red Wine intake - but we can't explain it.

    Mr. has just offered me the chance to get into my jimjams and he shall read to me an episode from "The Little House On The Prairie" Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    A book that changed your life ? Yeah!

    #138 I hope you don't have the same decorating mishaps we have had over the years Deebee. Glad you enjoyed the concert and yes I would have pinched better seats too!

    I'm hoping Mr W wants to go and see Skyfall when he returns from London. Then I'll get to watch it over again. People say Mr W looks like Daniel Craig so I was laughing a bit to myself during the film at the thought of him (Mr W) doing all the stunts ;)

    Evening All

    I hope everyone has had a good weekend. Ours has been rather busy. We've been decorating the sittingroom. Well, I say 'we' - if I'm honest it's Mr B who's been doing all the work, with me offering tea and food where required and attempting to keep the dogpoppet out of his way...

    Last night we went to see the comedian Greg Davies (from 'Inbetweeners', 'Mock the Week' amongst other TV shows). He was very good, very funny! We'd booked quite late and didn't have great seats, but there were some better ones near us which were vacant so we moved to those. Have any other bloggers ever done that? They were the same price as ours, and if anyone had turned up to claim them we would have of course vacated them at once, but no one did.

    Glad you enjoyed Skyfall, Shona. I'm looking forward to the time when enough people have seen it that we can actually talk about it, without fear of giving away spoilers...

    We've had no snow here - just a lot of rain today - but my Mum had a sprinkling in Dorset.

    #135 Enjoy your meal Billie but I have to say the seats were comfy at the cinema. As Mr W is in London for a few days, I went to see Skyfall on my own. The man sitting next to me had no idea how lucky he was as I nearly grabbed him a couple of times during the movie ;)

    When you said it first, it made me smile, Billie. Even though it has been a time since I went to work, Sunday still seems 'different' to other days of the week. It used to be the day for ironing and generally getting ready for the week ahead - now it tends to be a fairly lazy day unless there is work to be done in the garden.

    Have great evenings all.

    See you tomorrow

    JW

    Good fun up there ^^^ this morning!

    Thanks to PJ for starting it.

    #114 Jennie - you make me laugh! Are you trying to say it every Sunday? It IS true!

    #123 ParsleyCat - You are welcome! "Bechod" is a very useful Welsh word. It can be used - as I did - to mean "Shame!" - or "Pity!" - as I use it when someone has missed out on a mensh - or even "Bless!" when something touches you.

    No snow here - Sal/Hoffs - very cold but sunny and blue sky. We can see White on Snowdonia - don't know if it's hail or snow. Made us talk about having a trip there.

    Glad you enjoyed "Skyfall", Shona. Our nearest Cinema is Llandudno - about 30 miles away and anyhow I don't like itchy seats which you seem to get, nor being confined to one seat without being able to go to the loo or have a glass of red or a fag! Rather wait til it comes on telly and watch it in comfort at home.

    Pork Casserole with Prunes - baby pots. green beans - all together in a red wine sauce. It will look "Very French". Ha! Mr. Davies will be joining us at table.

    What shall I play on KB?

    Well that was a rather splendid way to spend the afternoon! That's the first time I've been to the cinema in ages and what a movie! Well done James Bond.

    I came out of the cinema to see loads of gritters on the roads. Very icy here and Brrrr cold too.
