Film: Eternals (2021)

The movie juggernaut that is Marvel Studios, thunders on with their 26th production – “Eternals“. For reasons that I can’t quite recall, I didn’t get round to seeing this at the cinema when it was first released in the UK on the 5th of November last year. And that’s quite rare for me – I’m …

Return to The Wheatsheaf

We met up with Mick & Jane at The Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh today. Gosh, we haven’t been here for quite a few years. My blog says November, 2016 (also with Mick & Jane)๐Ÿค” – but we do have more friends and do know more Pubs, honest! It’s fair to say we’ve been great supporters of …

“He’s behind you..!”

With 2021 behind us “(Oh no it isn’t!”)… it’s Panto time! ๐Ÿ˜ Janet and Jo picked us up and after a late breakfast at The Old Forge, and we headed for Milton Keynes Theatre. We haven’t been to a Pantomime, we think, for about 15 years. Back then, the cast would likely to have been …

Return to Great Oxendon

A new year and time to begin resuming many of the enjoyable routines from 2021! ๐Ÿ‘ And one of those routines is our regular lunch date with friends and neighbours, David and Valerie.

Film: The Matrix: Resurrections (2021)

I’m back at the local Odeon with Jo and Janet to see ‘The Matrix: Resurrections‘. I loved the two original Matrix movies (even if I didn’t fully understand what was always going on – I sensed where it was all going!), and this promises more of the same – but whether it was any good …

Christmas 2021 ๐ŸŽ…

How was your Christmas? For us, as I begin penning this during the week leading up to the big day, I really didn’t think we would STILL be worrying about Coronavirus! Why worry? The dreaded Omicron variant was spreading and there was the potential for the Government to lock us all down again! Almost ‘right …
