We fired up the iPlayer and watched Russell T’s version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream last night.


Not at all sure.

Much preferred his Casanova – and, that said, the Dream bore some resemblance. A similar formula. Methinks Russell T has become a one trick pony. Maxine Peake was a let down too. I thought she would make a brilliant Titania but the promise was not quite realised and her fawnings over the donkey-eared Bottom were far from convincing. The whole thing was a bit too pantomime-ish. Shakespeare as Candy Floss. Unsatisfying. Disappointing.

Loved Puck, though.

Did you see it? What did you think?

Today has simply shot past. No idea where the time has gone to. Perhaps I too was bewitched.

Spent my time with the camera. Oops.

Certainly no time to graft that sweater and wash it.

The hooded scarf is seamed. I think I do not like it. It is all wrong – poorly fitting or maybe just uncomfortable, but definitely wrong. One more item for the giveaway list, I think, but that is okay because I knitted it with the Orcadian winter winds in mind and now I am leaving so will not be needing it for ferry journeys and the like. I shall be in balmier climes.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
