DVD: Pride and Prejudice

We watched the 1995 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice in all its Blu-Ray glory this afternoon (five episodes today and one yesterday!). In my view, it’s still the best adaptation ever producedNot sure about the transfer to Blu-ray though – it looked decidedly grainy in places, and it also had a very strange voice-over…

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

…and the morning too! Unusually, neither of us had that much to do today. I got the books ready for Nick, my Accountant (it's my end-of-year), whilst Ann attacked the shower-room armed with an elbow full of grease - and the oven, with a chicken full of err.. chicken! Lee and I caught up with…

Lee and Ann go Flat hunting

After dropping the cats back, Lee and Ann went flat-hunting in Kettering. The reality is, we think, that Humberto will never come out of the care-home. So, our suggestion is that Lee will move out of Cromer once she has found somewhere suitable round here.

Cats in…Back out…

Julie’s Rules

Popped round to Julie and Tom's to try and deal with a problem Julie was having with all her emails automatically going into the deleted bin! It turned out that a 'rogue' rule was to blame. Technology is wonderful isn't it???

Result!

BA is NOT our favourite airline! Over the years they’ve consistently managed to fall well below our expectations whenever we’ve flown with them. Against better judgement, we chose to travel with them for our recent holiday to Barbados. When the return journey went t***-up and we had to find another way to get home, they…

Chris, Gill, Steve and Denise – Get together

I was out all day in London. Meanwhile, Ann and Lee performed miracles in the kitchen.The gang arrived just after 7 and as a result, we stuffed ourselves silly on all the home-made grub that had been prepared. Scrummy!!!

London calling!

What a busy week! Six-days too. Today, I’m off to London for one of our regularish LNG meetings. Luckily, Denise has managed to find us a semi-permanent home in Holborn (at least for this year), so that’ll help preserve the LNG funds. Nice one Denise!!!Today, we’re recapping assertiveness techniques courtesy of Angela.

TV: EastEnders at 25

The soap celebrated 25 years on-air tonight with a live episode. The BBC hype machine went into overdrive leading up to the event – you couldn’t go anywhere on BBC TV without a reminder at every possible opportunity!!!. Viewers were heard singing the theme tune and being asked for their opinion on the ongoing plot…
