The bodyguard program I mean. I have not been watching it but after all the "feeding frenzy" that is all over radio and TV I thought that I should have a look. The SO downloaded it last night and we watched the first episode. Those deep set dark eyes, all that shading(?).
Brooding looks, dark hair, dark pools for eyes. Oh er, Is it? can it be?
Oh My Word it's Heathcliff, but where was Kate of the flailing arms?
Now now all you fans, there is no need to get excited. I will give the second episode a look as well, in the interests both of fairness and the fact that I might miss something good.
It was good seeing Mrs Durrell again, lets hope that she doesn't get tipsy and make a fool of herself.
This is all in jest, I have not set out to offend anyone. It is, after all, a work of Fiction! It does, however, take me back to the heady days of The Forsythe saga, do you remember?
The Churches in many areas put Evensong back to allow their parishioners time to see it, the churches would have been empty if they hadn't.
Come to think of it Soames was a dark haired, dark eyed brooder with "issues". There is nothing new under the sun, as my Granny would say on a regular basis.
I remember when I made my first mini skirt and my Mun tutted rather pointedly, My Granny just said that the flappers dresses were positively indecent behind all the fringes, and do you remember that Chinese style dress with the slit up to your thigh? your dad made you wear 2 pairs of knickers just in case. I fell about laughing and dad choked on his coffee.
Silly season may just have made a comeback. I am a bit off piste here.
Anyhoo, I had a grand day out yesterday.
A visit with Chrissie, tea, chat and knitting, a pop in to see Sue and drool over some fabric in the Flying Goose.
Then a bite of lunch.......Bite....Who am I trying to kid, it was more of a controlled slurp.
Off again to see Bovey Belle for more knitting, more tea and Joy of Joy's CAKE!!! Home made (of course) Carrot Cake, what can I say. Moist,soft, tasty and a HUGE slice, no tasting the knife in that house.
I didn't pick the plate up and lick it, even though I thought about it. I can be polite, it did take will power.
We chatted away, put the world to rights, and did some knitting. I did a demonstration of my way of joining to knit in the round and the kitchener stitch. Why is it so difficult to explain something that you do without conscious thought ? it is akin to giving driving directions in your home town, you suddenly realise that although you could almost do it blindfold you can not tell anyone whether it is the 2 nd left after the big roundabout or the 3 rd.
On that confusing thought I am off to get Rufus and Herbie on their morning walk. The sun is shining,it is dry with very little or no wind and the air is crisp. Just Perfick.
PS. I came back from my last visit with a massive box of apples, I know that I have a relatively decent crop from my trees but 2 of them are mini trees and the others are too young to crop fully. That booty was most appreciated, just as much as the cake.
I haven't seen the Bodyguard in full either Pam only snippets of the first episode and I had missed the first 15 minutes of that so haven't really followed it since. I too had one of those chinese dresses with the split up the side but my dad didn't make me wear two pairs of knickets thankfully. Sounds like you had a lovely time knitting and eating cake too.

It was a grand day out, I do not do well in crowds and steer clear of busy places. A gentle day spent with lovely people is my idea of heaven. cake makes everything special.Delete
The Bodyguard was fantastic. I really loved it. I've been keeping an eye out for Richard Madden ever since he went to the wedding of Kit Harrington in a stunning kilt. Do yourself a favour if you haven't seen the pics, google Richard Madden Kilt. :)ReplyDelete
I went, I looked, I loved the kilt.Delete
Sounds like a lovely day Pam.ReplyDelete
I'm ready for a day out. It seems ages since we went to York.
I had a lovely time and plan on a "rinse and repeat" asap.Delete
Ref the bodyguard, I was going to ditch it after 2nd episode, but was told to stick with it, it defiantly gets better as the weeks go by. Lucky you, home made cake and free apples all in one day.ReplyDelete
I will do my best to watch the lot, if I can not believe a little in the characters though it makes me wriggle. physically and mentally.Delete
Loved the bodyguard and it's reality regarding both the forces, terrorism and dirty politicians etc. Very well written. Keep watching.ReplyDelete
I did see the truth in that, I have met a couple of politicians and found them very oily.Delete
Sounds like a great day out, always good if there is cake. I haven't watched The Bodyguard either.ReplyDelete
I will give the second episode a look and maybe the third. Then decide whether to carry on or just ski to the grande finale.Delete
I was gripped by Bodyguard from the first 20 minutes, it is brilliant and Tania has hit the nail on the head in her comment about dirty dealings. Stick with it Pam, not least for Richard Madden!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad your mouth is healing now. The cake sounds scrumptious .
Not so keen on him, not my type at all. I will stick for at least 2 more showings. The cake was glorious.Delete
A fun post .... I kept thinking Mrs Durrell too lolReplyDelete
Knitting, tea, cake, lunch - sounds like the perfect day.
As soon as I saw her i went straight to the "bohemian " scene and had to pause for a giggle session.Mind you I expect that there are peeps in government who have done worse.Delete
Hmm, now I need to see The Bodyguard. It sounds intriguing. Glad you had a lovely visit with Bovey Belle.ReplyDelete
Fingers crossed that you enjoy it. It was a great visit.Delete
