Bank holiday weekend

Pete and I spent Friday evening watching a very interesting French film called 'Little White Lies'.  It was mainly set in Cap Ferret near Bordeaux where we went last October.  An interesting film about money, selfishness and love.  A strange mix you may agree, but worth a look.

Yesterday we ventured into the local town and brought a few things in the shops before returning to make fresh juice (a mix of apples, carrots, grapefruit, peppers and plums!).  We then went to the see Hitchin Town play Circencester in a lower league football game.  Hitchin won 6-2 in a pulsating game that was non-stop action and despite the initial baulking at the £9 entrance fee, we both agreed it was worth the money in the end.  The weather started with heavy rain, then blue skies, then more rain, more rain and then ended with a brilliant rainbow.  Crazy summer weather!

On the way back we stopped for a quick beer before getting back and cooking roast chicken and roast potatoes, followed by a selection of cheeses.  A wonderfully cheap and satisfying meal.  What a friend we have in cheeses.

Today I drove us to Cambridge.  We had a coffee and then a walk around the shops.  There were some very fit guys free running - I wish I could do that and also have the pecs and abs that they had too. 

I had a voucher for some free photo printing after buying a new camera last month.  I have to say that the Jessops system is atrocious to use.   I was tempted to leave the shop after pressing the so-called-touch-screen over and over again and getting nowhere.  After some time, we got there and I now have a selection of photos that I don't quite know what to do with!  Actually, a couple may become Christmas presents.

We had intended going out this evening - let's see how we feel after dinner.  

Bank holiday tomorrow!
