  1. Strictly Come Dancing

    Still leaves Simon and Brian though, both of whom are pretty hopeless, and at least one of them should have been in the dance off last week. Charlotte wasn't as bad as either of those two.
  2. What's Up in October 2017?

    We had our latest ever delivery of post last night - just before 7.00!
  3. What's the weather like?

    Thanks to the remnants of the hurricane we had that weird orange sky yesterday afternoon, it was like being on Mars. Apparently it smelt pretty as well. Nice and sunny so far today.
  4. Strictly Come Dancing

    We're the only ones so far!
  5. Raven's Reads

    Way to go!
  6. Strictly Come Dancing

    I can't believe no one's been talking about this year's series! I think Alexandra is the best so far, what does everyone else think?
  7. Christmas planning and chat

    Ah well someone had to start it! The decorations are going up in Central London, Xmas departments are open in the stores, can't run, can't hide...have been looking around for some present ideas, have a few and might do some mail order as well (enticed by the offer of a £5 discount if I order before 31st October). I have a Christmas themed novel ready, it's a British Library Crime Classic called Portrait of a Murderer.
  8. What's Up in October 2017?

    That looks gorgeous, have a lovely trip. The trees here are only just beginning to turn now.
  9. Alexander's Literary Odyssey 2017

    I loved the first series of The Returned, but gave up on the second one, and there was an American remake which was Ok. Not sure if they made a second series of the US version.
