Strange Champney's reminds me so much of my mother. She used to do Aqua Aerobics & Yoga, but started in her 60's! http://tinyurl.com/c55skdd
Technology against me, so making notes on the script of film Vigilia for writer Rhianna Pratchett, the old fashioned, way using pen on paper

The Film "The Ides of March" was surprisingly good. Solid performances from all the cast but Phillip Seymour Hoffman is truly exceptional.

The Chilterns are beautiful, even when walking on them in the rain - but still prefer streets of London & that special kind of Autumn grey
Hugely surprised that eyesight has improved since my last eye test 3 years ago, when I was told "your old it's inevitable they'll get worse"
