Charmed!


Today, Sunday my back yard was awash with the golden flash of wings from 18 Goldfinches! 18! There were all squabbling over the three sunflower feeders I have and flew in from a neighbouring tree opposite. They were funny to watch, swooping down upon the seeds, but what a racket they made!

Yesterday, David went walking in Cumbria with his work colleagues so I stayed at home, in the warm, away from the cold rain and wind. I enjoyed a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio and a Shahi from our regular curry house Saffron! It went down a treat. 😀

With work at the university starting again, my days are busy going back and forth too lectures. I have two students who are studying Law and a student I am mentoring who is studying American History.

Two weeks ago, Mum and I went to the Odeon cinema in Liverpool One to see The Hobbit!

I did not have much hope that I would enjoy it as much as Lord of the Rings as I was unable to get through reading the first chapter of the book! However, from the opening scenes to the end, I was hooked! I loved the film! The cinematography, the acting (even the Dwarves) and the score were all wonderful! It was great to revisit Hobbiton. I love Bag End! I so could see myself living there! 😀 I can’t wait for the second film in the trilogy now! 🙂
