.. of mice and Melanie's, went whooshing out of the window when tear inducing knee pain forced her to stay put and not move; so bad was it that it overshadowed the back pain and that's quite some pain. I am now back on co-codamol pain relief and am being referred on to a physiotherapist and a chiropractor. Also, the brother in law and his girlfriend visited on Friday so my nice neat home looked like a bomb had gone off when I got up on Saturday morning.
I had planned on visiting all your blogs, doing some reading, some sewing and some decluttering but I have been able to do nothing whatsoever. Pooh. Oh, I have been watching my new DVD's, so far we have seen 'Psych Out' (a real snap shot of 1967/68 with little plot), 'Bunny Lake Is Missing' (another snapshot of the time and a lovely crisp black and white mid sixties film to boot) and 'Please Sir'.
We have very much been enjoying BBC1's new afternoon offering of 'Privates' which is about the last conscription to National Service, which I heartily believe they should bring back (along with the Empire, Andy remarked, poking fun at me). I was not taken in by 'Downton Abbey', as high society Edwardian life does nothing much for me and it usually involves a hunting party which I have even less tolerance for, but I really enjoyed 'Mr Selfridge'. In other telly news, I really am liking 'Ripper Street' and am looking forward to the return of 'Call The Midwife' and am intrigued by next week's BBC1 afternoon offering, 'Father Brown' which is set in the fifties too.
And in other happy news, the postie came with a gift for me from Curtise yesterday which cheered me no end! I opened up the squishy packet to find inside -
Five new to me vintage hair scarves, like the ones I wear on a daily basis that I have never seen (well I found one once) in charity shops and a lovely pair of gloves which literally fit like a glove! I was very excited to see the scarf colours as they are all different to what I currently have. The green one went on straight away and looks lovely next to my hair colour. Thank you again Curtise, I adore them and feel very lucky indeed.
I have also spent some of my Christmas/birthday money on a new petticoat and a couple of patterns, so am looking forward to those arriving.
