Film: Black Widow

It’s been a while since we last went to the cinema (December, last year, when we saw Wonder Woman 1984). That visit was to the local Odeon, but it’s been even longer (August, 2020 – almost a year) since we went to the shinier, newer, Cineworld, here at Rushden Lakes to see Christopher Nolan’s mind-boggling …

Party, Party!

Well, we haven’t done this in a while! It’s fair to say that many of our immediate circle of neighbours have all had significant things to ‘deal with’ these past few months, so tonight was the perfect opportunity to get together. We played to our strengths, Ann weaving her magic in the kitchen and creating …

Fully Charged Live 2019

It seemed appropriate that our first major outing in our very first EV would be the Fully Charged Live Show at nearby Silverstone! After picking up Chris and Mark in Northampton, we headed for this iconic location, where, in addition to plenty of ‘talkie-bits’, there was also an opportunity to test drive the latests EVs …

Well, we finally did it! We’ve taken the plunge and we’re now all electric for our main car! ? We fancied something in white, maybe with a touch of blue… Our Choice Ahh, there it is! The Kia e-Niro ‘First Edition’ After a lot of research, we narrowed it down to just ONE model! – …
