Thursday, 27th September 2018

It's been a really pretty day, all sun and very little cloud. Temperatures are getting a little cooler, so for me, the best kind of weather.
i didn't see much of it though as i went to our local auction.  i had a fair wait for the items i was interested in - a couple of pictures - and amused myself writing down the unexpected big prices for some items.  Normal line-up of china, pottery, glass, bic-a-brac and jewellery were up first, then the silver before the picture/paintings etc, some 300 lots.  i had a couple of breaks before that and a quick spot of lunch in their cafe.  At last my patience was rewarded and the picture section started.  i really like Peter Nuttall and look forward to one or two turning up.Read more...Collapse )
That's it for now, take care and have a lovely weekend.

Two posts for one day!  i'm spoiling you, ha ha.  Just the Friday Five...

1. Do you have the urge to do a Fall/Spring cleaning as soon as the weather turns?
Not cleaning as such, but do have periodic downsizing on books (ouch!) and DVDs

2.What tells you that the season (a certain smell, a certain taste, that sort of thing) has changed?
Just the temperature really and how the birds are faring

3.What do you look forward to the most with the change of seasons?
The simple fact of having proper changes of seasons really. Having spent so many years in countries that have very little variance, it's a nice change. You may think endless blue skies are wonderful, but believe me, you can get really sick of it.  i LOVE rain and snow; just not crazy about endless grey skies!

4. What is something that you probably should accomplish but won’t this season?
Hmmm, like what, i wonder?  i'm frequently a step behind on my house cleaning and i need to clear out my other armchair, which has disappeared under a mound of stuff!  But need to do a load of sewing/repairs etc first

5. What is the most enjoyable part of the oncoming season for you?
i like the cooler weather and had to stop myself from dancing in the rain after that long dry spell - seriously!

i went to see 'Height of the Storm' at my local theatre, with Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins - enjoyed seeing them a lot - wish i could say the same for the play.  A load of anglasized (from the French) tosh, frankly.  i would not receommed it to anyone, except fans of the pricipals.
i'm off to see a spooky, sci-fi flic on Wednesday, called 'Venom' - i have been warned!  i love special effects, but as i'm not a huge fan of Tom Hardy, i'll let you know.
All for now, toodles!
