Christmas has started officially here. How do I know? I’ve just bought the Christmas edition of the Radio Times from WH Smith’s. Strangely there wasn’t a copy of the TV Times available at the same time – but I managed to pick that up at Tesco’s.
We’ve also started to wrap the Christmas pressys too!
I’ll hand deliver the local cards tomorrow.
Oliver Postgate died yesterday aged 83. He was the creator of Noggin-the-Nog, Ivor the Engines, Pogles Wood and Bagpuss. Most people seem to remember him for Bagpuss – but for me (maybe it’s my age!), Noggin-the-Hog and Ivor the Engine are still very clear images in my head.
I caught up with Spooks on Sky-Plus. An excellent final episode, with the predictable cliff-hanger ending. The BBC has already confirmed an eighth series – that’s great! For me, it’s easily the best show on the TV at the moment, and the production qualities are excellent! 👍
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
