With the clocks moving I have no idea what time it is now? Is it still Saturday Night or is it Sunday Morning ? Best way to tell is to stay in bed until someone else finds out, but that can’t happen in house with youths unless they’re asleep (in which case it’s probably early afternoon)

Got the little jobs done yesterday and managed a spanking good lunch in The Brown Jug. Bacon, Brie and Cranberry ciabatta for a fiver. Now that is a result.

Comes with a cracking salad and half decent portion of chips. I’d thoroughly recommend it, even if it is slightly out of town. Only thing that bothers me is that I may be looking a bit like a Japanese tourist by taking pictures of my lunch, but it was just too good not to share.

The morning post delivered the final part of my Christmas present from L&D in Scotland. They very generously gave me an amazon.com voucher, and I spent it on pre-ordering DVD’s of movies that would be available later in the year. Last month was The Time-Traveller’s Wife, which had been dubbed impossible to film (If you’ve read the book – and you should – you’d understand why) although I should add that the film does a pretty good rendition of a very convoluted plot and still manages to make it understandable.

Anyway, yesterdays delivery was 2012. A load of disaster movie nonsense in the best traditions of The Posideon Adventure, Towering Inferno, Earthquake and Armageddon. Thoroughly enjoyable as long as you can suspend any reality for a massive 2 and half hours. John Cusack does a sterling job and I continue to enjoy his works (see “Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil” and more recently “The Jury”). Bonus points if you know the connection between “Midnight-ITGOGAE” and “Cape Fear” (The original 1962 version) and “Forrest Gump”.

Just staying on the Movie theme for a second, I also managed to pick up a copy of “Harvey” in WHSmiths for 3 quid on the recommendation of Scobi in a recent conversation. Looking forward to fitting that in soon.

S is coming to visit this afternoon. Will be lovely to see her and it seems she’s coping well past the funeral from last week too.

After that we have SpagBol for dinner and Come Dine with Me to look forward to, followed by 3 days back at work and 6 days off adventuring.

Right then – Bacon butties and coffee (tea for Mrs G) then off to get the Sunday Papers – assuming they’re open yet – What time is it ?
