I am easy about what you call me - Lynn is possibly easier than Rusticus!

Yes Vonny watching the sea is exhilarating, I walk our little dog by the sea most days as I love to see the changes and Lucy dog enjoys chasing the seagulls and dashing around on the beach. Hate it when she finds a smelly fish to roll on though Rolling Eyes

Our daughter loved the book yet she and her friend hated the film! She said the characters were portrayed differently. Laughed at you telling your DH to shut up Very Happy  My DH is easily confused when watching some films!

I am exhausted after reading what Vonny, Mickie and Jennie fit into a day, they certainly make me seem lazy in comparison. Laughing

glad of a quiet day today -sorted out a pair of leg warmers that I want to knit and a way to knit them both at once in the round.
Sunny and warm this afternoon so took a stroll around the neighbourhood. It always amazes me that there are so many people living in a small area but not much going on -perhaps everyone was out shopping!

Today I am brain dead.  It was the Art Society AGM which went on...............and.............on.................. Rolling Eyes    This was followed by an art DVD but the volume was soooooo loud some of us were sitting there with our hands over our ears  Laughing   You have to laugh - you'd be committing murder otherwise Laughing

What was nice though, was that when we came out of the hall, there was a beautiful red sky and it was still light.  Fantastic!  Brought to mind the adage that come the second Saturday in February you will have your tea in daylight.

Planning on having a quiet crafting day tomorrow.

Scrapmate I did smile at you shutting your DH up!  I have heard such a lot about this film that I can't wait to read the book.  I just have to finish The Killing III first.  Shan't see the film until it is on the TV.  We don't have too much in the way of cinemas.

Machine embroidery Jennie?  If that were me I'd get paint or ink all over it.  You're obviously a much tidier worker Laughing  Laughing

The sea where you are is obviously more interesting than it is where I am Lynn - the beach is shingle too so don't go down there much, only when I feel the need for power exercise - walking on shingle being good for one's leg muscles so they say  Wink

Mind you, you probably get similar exercise with your line dancing Vonny - and you don't get bufetted by wind or soaked with spray - think you might be getting the better deal there

that's fantastic Becky - going out for a meal to celebrate your dad's 90th.  In the meantime you're probably right to stay in the warm

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone

never heard that adage Mickie -what a mine of info you are! Line dancing is good exercise but with no fresh air (unless the windows are open)or sun on your face (!)

Well the machine embroidery was very interesting and we were very much left to experiment. So what did I end up doing - collage in fabric! And yes Mickie -there was a comment about the "white stuff" on my machine. Either gesso or paint, not too sure which  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

A quieter today sorting out a fleece for spinning - sorry that's another interest  Embarassed My cousin gave me one of his Tex shearings (I think the breed is actually Texel). I graded the fleece which was huge and carded and spun a little bit of each area to see what it is like. I think it will not be soft but may be warm !

My good news of today is that I am following a new diet regime - high protein and low carb ....... I've lost 2lb this week  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked The food is so nice I was worried that I would be putting on weight! So pleased about the one. Along with the exercise each day I have worked quite hard. So 2 down, 12 to go ................ wonder if i can do before I go on holiday to Crete  Laughing

I am re-reading Girl on the Train - not like me to re-read a book but Terry has just read and enjoyed it immensely. Not sure I will go and see the film - hearing mixed feelings here about it.

Tonight we're going to see a movie called Hidden Figures about black female scientists during the space race in the 60s. Also have to collect DS1 whose flight from Bologna was cancelled yesterday so he and 7 colleagues got an extra day there.
