  1. Hi - in a similar vein is The Diving Bell and the Butterfly written by the editor-in-chief of a French magazine who had a massive stroke and was completely paralysed He was diagnosed with 'locked-in' syndrome where the only communication he could make was by blinking one of his eyes. He wrote the book by doing this. It's a concise but riveting read. Tammy
  2. The Hobbit film is great - highly recommend it. Usual prob tho, I spent most of the film trying to work out how true to the book it was and now I'm torn between re-reading the book or waiting til the other 2 come out so as not to spoil them for myself.

  3. I'm convinced that the questions on Celebrity Mastermind are easier than usual. I've therefore concluded that the only way I can win Mastermind is to become a celebrity.

      They are a bit easier aren;t they? Go on then - get your celebrity status and give it a go. Are we thinking scandal or Oscar?

  4. Watching UP - how come a simple opening sequence of an animated movie can bring a tear to my eye? What a soppy thing I am!

      That opening montage is incredibly moving. Even when I saw it in 3D and was struggling with the glasses, lol!

      It is a very moving opening sequence, it's just a lovely film in general in my opinion.

  5. My mobile phone has gone AWOL :(

      Read! Or are you the kind of bored I get sometimes where even a book won't entertain? : )

  9. People shouldn't go leaving around tins of Roses before Christmas dinner-resistance is futile.
