Something that Mr S and I have been meaning to do for ages is
to have a 'once a week film night'.
Somehow, we just haven't got around to organising it because
I'm usually too tired after I've finished teaching in the evenings
and I just want to flop into an armchair.
However, at last we've made the effort!
And we started with the best, on Friday night!
'The King's Speech'
Oh boy did I enjoy this film! I loved every minute of it;
I thought the cast was superb and I found myself wanting to watch
it all over again, asap!
If you haven't seen it...do!!
Next week, we're watching 'Amelie' . I can't wait for that one either !
It was so quiet there with very few people around although,
amazingly, we bumped into a very good friend
as we were making our way back to our car.
The trundle across the moors was so beautiful but it was oh so very cold
in South Devon, yesterday!
Earlier in the day, we had visited Ashburton.
I hadn't been down to Ashburton for a while and so it was lovely to
pop in and see Sarah and her mum, in their Vintage Emporium.
I don't think the temperature got above 2 degrees all day and I truly
was glad to get home and have a cuppa!
Mr S managed to find a live stream to watch his beloved Arsenal, online,
whilst I logged in to have a quick chat with a friend
in Canada (Hi Gray!) who was following the fortunes of
another great team ...Torquay United!
How I laughed when he gave me the news of a goal
faster than both Sky Sports TV AND Nich's text
(he was at the match, freezing himself silly!)
Comes to something when you get your footy news much faster
from Canada! How mad is that?!
Tonight is the last episode of South Riding.
I've loved this too!
I remember watching and very much enjoying the 1974 adaptation,
with Dorothy Tutin and also reading the book, years ago .
I think that this new adaptation is excellent too.
And, if you're as interested as I am to find out more about the author,
Winifred Holtby, here's a bit of info:
