I'm watching Much Ado About Nothing. At the same time as blogging. But concentrating on both equally you understand. This is Joss Whedon's Much ado which, incredibly, he filmed in 12 days at his house in Santa Monica. He had 2 weeks inbetween filming the Avengers Assembled movie and editing it, so instead of going to Venice with his wife, they made another movie. That's called being a workaholic I believe but the results are terrific and the reviews are great. Joss is on the 5L movie show this afternoon, along with the new Superman Henry Cavill. I have one hour inbetween the 2 shows so inspired by Joss Whedon, I'll make a quick documentary about the history and geography of the Euphrates river.


Then it is the ARF and your opening year of requirement is 1980. Splendid choices all welcome.


Have a chirpy and spirited Friday, see you after 2 and/or 5.

    Good morning dear bloggies - overcast at the moment but mild and the birds are singing - tra la la.

    All good wishes coming your way, PW, and hoping your boys recover soon.

    Are you getting used to being a nanna, Katy? ;0))

    Amelia - the Wimbledon bit in Simon's chat yesterday, made me giggle too - but I suppose it is something to consider! :)

    CSN - we haven't really met but I 'know' you from when I was a lurker - hello!

    Canute - don't you find that the cricket noise can be annoying too?

    And to anyone I've missed - HELLO!

    What a joy to read ... and once more thanks for ALL the congratulatory messages [and ecard Flo!] I fear I'll leave someone out if I start listing .. but please be sure that I've read every single word and appreciated every sentiment.

    I'm home-based today and supposed to be 'doing my books' - the joys of self-employment!
    Already wondering how focussed I can remain when there's a little 8 lb bundle of poppetness only four minutes walk away.

    In the meantime would like to extend sympathetic but positive thoughts to blogfamilies that might find themselves less than healthy, or a little short on contentment or just generally having an uncomfortable time of it .. I think we all appreciate that not everything can be shared in here.

    xx

    Morning all

    Tired (Justin Rose's fault) and spooked (Viktor's fault).

    Good Morning All

    Busy day yesterday, and I was so tired by the evening that I didn't get a chance to post.

    Went to church in the morning, and we were sitting listening to the sermon when all of a sudden there was an almighty (pun intended!) crash... I'm sure it woke a couple of the old ladies up. Anyway, a few people went outside but there was no evidence of anything. Was it the Second Coming, a bit earlier than we'd expected? Anyway, with a bit of Googling (where would we be without it?) it transpired that it was a sonic boom. Maybe other bloggers in the Cambs/Herts/Essex area heard it?

    So pleased Amelia got Wittertainment tickets. And at the same time insanely jealous... Shame you aren't able to go, Hazel. They usually do 2 or 3 a year, so I'm hoping there will be other chances.

    #163 Thank you Jennie! I will explain later.

    Lovely to see CSN popping by!

    PW, sorry to hear you have two poorly children. Hope they are soon feeling better.

    ~X~

    Morning all.

    And morning Hoffs - oh that was too early a start to the day. Sorry you've got two sick children on your hands - hope it's nothing serious. No fun at all to be worrying about them on your own though. I prescribe several cups of strong tea.

    Hope to be back later.

    Morning (again)

    Please disregard rumblings #188 and 189.

    Two sick children here now and the one who was ill last week is back at school today. Bit tired. Hope to be able to play later, if not, have good days all xx

    Oops, got keen fingers that danced across the iPad onto the 'post' button....

    I will save you all the job of pressing the 'who cares?' button, regarding my early morning thoughts. Need to learn to switch my rather over-active imagination down to 'simmer mode' overnight.

    Deebee - Sending hugs and brave vibes xxx

    See you all soon xxx

    *helloooo?!

    Just thought I might poop by to see if anyone is around.......

    Woken by a sick child,now can't get back to sleep.

    Jilly - Welcome back! - I love your 'ramblings' - don't stop.

    amelia - was the sky clear with you when you last posted? If so, you might have seen the ISS whizz over. Hope there weren't too many midge bites last night.

    ARFO - I'm in the 'I like having a year set for us' camp. Rather selfishly, it gives me the opportunity to spend a lot of the morning reminiscing and playing songs from that year, having been reminded of what was around at that time.

    Two early morning subjects Over which I am pondering:

    1. What would Roald Dahl have written about if James (of Giant Peach fame) hadn't tripped over and dropped all the green crystals given to him by the old man, but had managed to drink the magic potion.......

    2. Why does the manufacturer of my dogs' emergency dog food call it 'kibble'? This would suggest to me that it is small and easy to eat, for some reason. On opening the box I discovered large chunks interspersed throughout the mixture - the equivalent of gobstoppers for small dogs. Have to filter them out or I get 'do you honestly think I can eat THAT?!' kind of looks.

    Hope Nana's little girl and her Mummy are sleeping peacefully this morning.

    A very quick hello as it's way past bedtime. Out all day and most of the evening so I shall catch up on the blog tomorrow, but would like to congratulate Katy on the arrival of her new granddaughter. X

    Awww CSN how lovely to see you pop in here :) Saw the christening photos on FB - beautiful! x

    I confess, I do not have a maternal bone in my body, children are just not my thing. I always find it a little strange that a lot of people seem a bit miffed at my choice not to reproduce. If I had a fiver for every time someone had said something along the lines of "that's a shame" when I tell them I am childless, I'd be a woman of riches by now.

    But, that does not stop me being chuffed, happy and delighted at other people's wonderful baby news :)

    I'm sure there was a point to my senseless ramblings when I started typing ....... :S

    Time for bed, methinks. Snoring dog is my aural accompaniment.
    Night night sweet things xxx
