But enough snow to make the lane silent as the grave and to make me cancel a routine visit to the surgery and my help Sheila to miss two mornngs. Note the hills in the distance - the Quantocks were looking particularly attractive this morning although nothing to compare to the mountains the Angry Parsnip http://twosquaredogs.blogspot.com.uk/ has on her doorstep.
Watched a feel good film last night 'It's Complicated' with Alec Baldwin, Meryl Streep and Steve Martin. Nancy Meyers wrote and directed it and IMO the awards and nominations it garnered were well deserved. There is a web-cam scene which had me screeching with delight. Tubby Alec Baldwin is a joy and I relished a very restrained Steve Martin finally breaking out. Meryl always throws herself wholeheartedly into whatever the part demands and there's lots of' 'interior decorating and confectionary porn'.
It's becoming a habit: every Monday morning - usually when I'm in the middle of leaving a comment over at Savannah's http://savmarsmama.blogspot.co.uk/ I'm bounced off line. Still it's an ill wind - I did some housework and had a long chat with an old nursing pal who is about to have a new knee - she already has a new hip. She's in her eighties so hats off. She is a widow and tragically lost her daughter some years back but happilyshe and her brother decided to pool resouces and live together and they have a high old time travelling and having cruises. Great example of seizing the day.
Something strange happened over the week-end the number of hits I had went viral. What did I do?
