Tusday second attempt.

        

                                    

Good Afternoon, a very quiet day here we were out and about this morning for a while I needed some shopping from the supermarket and Stuart was having a haircut.  It was very cold and windy so we did not stay out long. Made yet another pot of soup for lunchtime and then prepared the tea.  Have spent most of the afternoon up here in the study on the computer playing games and reading alerts as they came in. 

Stuart is downstairs watching Return of the King the third in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I am not very keen as I did not really enjoy the first one and gave up half way through the second one.  I had great difficulty hearing what they were saying and did not want to keep saying to Stuart what was that he said so I just gave up in the end.

J-Land seems to be thinking back today I was doing the same last night. Stuart was up here on the computer and called me up to see the outdoor skating rink they have made outside the Forum in Norwich by the way this was on the BBC website they have web cams all over the country. This got me thinking how much I enjoyed skating when I was younger and how I am determined to go to Perth ice rink just one more time as I am totally convinced that I will still be able to do it. I think I will wait till after the school holidays when it will be a bit more quiet. All of my skating was done at Dundee ice rink which has been knocked done to make way for a retail park its so sad as it was such a popular place and had great ice. Going to watch the second part of the drama that started last night Secret Smile it was really good and we enjoyed it very much, and of course Holby as well. Look forward to that. Catch you later Much Love and best wishes.

I have Holby on in the background and I'm gonna watch the secret smile too.  Last night was good.  Glad you've had a nice day.  I don't enjoy that Lord of the Rings either.  I've never been ice skating but that's sad about your ice rink

Never been ice skating, but used to go roller skating in the local village hall, that was in the early 1960's. I was useless, only went to eye the lads up lol.

I must be rare because I liked the LOTR films, pure escapism.  However, I really enjoyed Secret Smile, very well acted and David Tenant was really good as the nutter.  Been nice to find something decent on t.v.

I've never been ice skating, am the worlds worst roller skater let alone ice skating!!  Like Sylvia, I used to go skating to eye up the lads ;o)  I liked the LOTR films, but then I like most fantasy stuff like that.  Must be frustrating when you can't hear what they're saying.
