  1. Change-a-letter Book Title

    Metaborphosis - we studied this by Kafka for German A Level, and it was our nickname for it.
  2. I hear you! the Power of Love - Frankie Goes to Hollywood/Huey Lewis/Jennifer Rush
  3. What's the weather like?

    Oh yes, about 30 mins every night watering, I don't mind it though, it's relaxing and gets me moving after a day stuck working at my "desk". bit breezier today so a bit more comfy.
  4. What's the weather like?

    My mum has a theory that all those wind farms are causing the winds..... Saturday was also windy and we had a brief downpour with hail for about 10 minutes, then it cleared up but was still very windy. Sunday and yesterday were glorious though, managed to get to a garden centre and it actually felt like a Bank Holiday weekend.
  5. Reap the Wild Wind - Ultravox
  6. What's the weather like?

    Well the last couple of days the weather has cooled down, it's been very windy and today we had a brief heavy shower with a bit of hail! Hopefully the rest of the holiday weekend won't be so wild.
  7. Blowin' in the Wind - Bob Dylan (even older than the 70s I think!)
  8. What's the weather like?

    Went out in the garden at about 9.00 and it was quite warm even in the shade! there was a nice breeze yesterday which helped but when it dropped it was very warm!
  9. Always on My Mind - Pet Shop Boys/Elvis Presley etc
  10. What Are You Watching Now? - 2020

    Is that the one with Eva Green? I think it's due to be shown here too.
  11. The Last Film You Saw - 2020

    Glad I didn't waste money in the cinema, it was on TV! I noticed a continuity gaff too, but I can't remember what it was.
  12. What's the weather like?

    It was quite warm around 9.00, cool in the shade. Yep meant to be mid or maybe even upper 20s tomorrow (depending where you live) then cooling down a bit.
  13. What's the weather like?

    Gradually got warmer over the weekend, although there were a lot of rainclouds but they blew over, meant to get warmer this week.
  14. The Last Film You Saw - 2020

    the Snowman - the film version of Jo Nesbo's novel - what a mess! I have read the book but couldn't remember that much about it apart from the basic storyline, but it was very disjointed and they fudged the ending - the final confrontation is done much better in the book, whereas the film's ending felt very rushed and anti-climactic. I also thought Michael Fassbender was too young, again this is where the book comes in - Harry is about 10 years older than MF in the book, and he was just too young to capture all the world weariness that Harry has, he just came across as the usual petulant maverick cop, which he is in the book but there is much to his character than all the usual clichés. It was obviously hoped there'd be another film judging by the last scene but I remember the reviews weren't very good so I wasn't expecting much. Also one of those films with lots of familiar faces popping up in tiny roles. Great scenery though.
