All Change

Amazing how different the old and new packaging of Anzac biscuits is and yet I didn't realise until I put them side by side! Time to revisit the Optician do you think LOL?

At Last...

What Was I Thinking?

Some work colleagues persuaded me to join them last night playing badminton. I haven't been on a court for at least 20 years. What harm could it do, what might possibly go wrong? Except for the twisted knee, sore lower back and aggravating a near forgotten tennis elbow.

Same again next Thursday then LOL.

When Did This Happen?

When exactly did Doughnuts become Donuts?

I've been reading today that a hard drive containing unfinished novels by author Terry Pratchett has been destroyed, in accordance with his wishes. 

Isn't it lovely the desire for a fast or easy buck wasn't allowed to win out? Pratchett's long term assistant Rob Wilkins was able to carry out the instruction nearly two and a half years after the authors death. 

Nothing could be worse in my opinion than (perhaps a well intentioned) fellow author trying to second guess plot points and motivations or attempt to reproduce another's writing style. At least this way Pratchett's words remain untarnished and true in the minds of his fans.

In case anyone is interested, the Lord Jericho, a six and a half tonne steam roller at the Great Dorset Steam Fair was used. Wonderful.

Back To 30

Unusually for a public holiday we've enjoyed a lovely hot day with not a cloud in sight. Temperatures in this part of the UK touched 30 degrees Celsius or so. Fantastic. Most school children are enjoying their last full week of summer holiday before the new school year starts in September; make the most of the time off in this lovely weather, girls and boys! And don't forget to stay hydrated.

Next UK public holiday is Christmas Day. It's gonna be a long slog LOL.

Have binge watched the BBC production Top of the Lake, set in New Zealand. Looks to be a beautiful place despite all the violence and murder portrayed across the 6 episodes.

Currently half way through the sequel Top of the Lake: China Girl. This time the action has relocated to Sydney, but still with an equal share dubious characters and motives.

Gripping stuff.

Back from visiting Dad. To say he was not very good today would be an understatement. He seems to have deteriorated since his birthday in June. Very confused and frail. He's missing SM this weekend, who is attending a family event, and clearly aware how much he struggles when she is not around.

Wasn't hard at all, seems he was hiding at the Sea Life Centre in Brighton LOL.

And what a lovely Victorian era building the centre is housed in.

Some countries refer to the "rainy season." In the UK we call it "summer."

I'm not at all impressed and feel sorry for the school children who have just broken up for 6 weeks holiday.

Bucket List

Can't help but feel this needs rewording. I fear otherwise we might have a large section of the construction industry lacking a vital piece of equipment LOL.
