G-g-g-ood morning, everyone. I'm just back from a rootle in the freezer (out in the shed) and it ain't 'arf cold out there. A hard frost and more or less clear skies. In the summer I go out to the freezer bare footed but no way today!
At least it's not snowed, unlike yesterday, not that it caused much more than a load of very excited children! There was snow in the air all day but no more showers and some glorious sunshine which made my wander around town very pleasant indeed.
I did OK in town. I got some more pjs including (very exciting, this) some a size smaller! And they fit (just!). I also got a lightweight suitcase which was my main reason for going in. I have a smaller lightweight case but next week I will need something larger to avoid having extra bags. I got just what I wanted in Matalan. I also found the couple of Landranger maps that I needed (goodness, aren't they expensive?) and had a good rootle around both Foyles and Waterstones. I love bookshops, don't you? Disappointingly, neither shop had anything like a guide to Cambridge, so I went onto Amazon when I got home and found what I wanted there, bit the bullet and paid for a fast delivery. My fault for leaving it until late!
I was terribly lazy come the evening and decided to defer the ironing until today. As I have a free day until tuition, I shall do it while watching my daily dose of Hugh F-W this morning. An hour should be plenty long enough.
Instead, I took a nose dive back into total nostalgia. Anyone old enough to remember The Man From UNCLE? Oh, that was my to die for TV in the sixties. How I totally loved David McCallum, as did everyone else at school. I lived for Thursday evenings.
Well - I can see why, watching it again in my advanced years! It was funny, tongue in cheek, spoofy type stuff, budget-made, I suspect, but entertaining, very entertaining. And I could still have a massive crush on Illya Kuryakin!
Back to normality and time is zooming on so I will finish this now. Have a lovely day, whatever you are doing.
Oh I remember the man from uncle yes I am that oldReplyDelete
I loved it!ReplyDelete
I saw re-runs! Love Ilya - I could never see why the other guy kept getting the girls (temporarily)ReplyDelete
Oh, I didn't mind that. After all, he was mine, all mine. :-)ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy Cambridge.ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, The Man from UNCLE! But I drooled over James Garner as Bret Maverick, in the cowboy series Maverick (in the late 1950s). Also Barry Foster in anything he was in (perhaps best known for Van der Valk - is that the correct spelling? with it's very catchy theme tune, which I bought on a 45 rpm record).ReplyDelete
Oooh, yes, James Garner was scrummy too - just not as scrummy as David McCallum!ReplyDelete
