Pupils Reunited!

I hadn’t travelled to London for almost three years and then today, I was here in the capital again, in just two weeks! Recently, it was the rather excellent Doctor Who Experience with Jo; this time something much less timey-wimey – today, a small reunion of ex-school chums (Valerie, Hazel and Bob) and all official …

Film: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022)

Off to the flicks with fellow superhero enthusiasts, Jo and Janet, to catch Marvel’s latest blockbuster – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – part of the continuing expansion of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (the MCU). ๐Ÿ‘ Hard to believe that this is the 28th movie in Marvel’s rollout (yes, really!) and the 11th instalment …

Food and more food!

Increasingly, we’re both a little bit more conscious of what and how much we eat these days – so today was going to be a challenge! Not so much quaLITY but quanTITY. Potentially, there was a big chance we could easily over-eat – and no doubt, pay the price the following day! ๐Ÿ˜• First stop …

London-bound: Doctor Who Immersive Experience

We haven’t been to London for nearly three years (because of you-know-what) and it felt slightly weird boarding the train. Some things don’t change though, and because of engineering works, we had to skip Kettering station and drive to Huntingdon to get to the capital on time. Again, ‘normaility’ meant the train was PACKED! The …

Return to the other George!

A welcome return to the newly refurbished ‘other’ ‘The George’ today – the Pub/Bistro/Hotel in Buckden. Since we were last here back in April 2019, the place has had a complete makeover – not just the eatery but the whole Hotel! The ladies’ loos had gold taps and were immaculate from top to bottom (so …

The Wheatsheaf – Again!

We returned to The Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh today to meet up with good friends Mick and Jane. We were last here in January, again with Mick and Jane, and we’d chosen today’s repeated visit for the simple reason that previously, we’d all been mighty impressed with the food and service! ๐Ÿ˜‹ We arrived just a …

Film: The Batman (2022)

In complete contrast to our recent outing to see The Duke – a rather light-hearted affair – here we are once again at the local Odeon (sans Meerkat) to see the new Batman film – by comparison, it looks like a much, much darker offering!ย  ๐Ÿค” It seems only yesterday that we had Director Chris …

Friends Reunutted!

Here we are at The George in Great Oxendon reuniting with The Northants Nuttersโ“‡, aka Geoff & Rhonda and Paul & Sue. We last got together for our Warner Weekend at Alveston Hall, back in January and it was good to see everyone again! ๐Ÿ™‚ As we arrived in the car-park, it was clearly a …
