And . . . relax

Friday is here once again, and that deserves a cheer from the Scobi camp.

Reflecting on the week, not too much happened that will stick in the memory.  At work I have made a few tippety steps with a few key issues.  At home I have finished off the last little bits of the shower room door and the tools and associated detritus are now removed from both shower room and (nearly) utility room.

I also have new glasses, which as reported yesterday are taking a bit of getting used to.  Being stronger, I have that thing again where as you take off the glasses to look in to the distance, your eyes take a bit of time to refocus, and that has not happened in a long while, which itself goes to prove that I have needed stronger glasses for a while.

This weekend we are taking it pretty easy.  Maggot 1 has scouts and his scouting friend is coming back to ours for a sleepover tonight.  Tomorrow we are off to see Oliver! in Southampton, and on Sunday we may try to finally get the Sunday lunch at the Nags date sorted with LO's outlaws, the said date having been cancelled twice before due to illness.  The Nags offers a Sunday buffet, somewhat nearer the "pile 'em high and sell them fairly cheap" variety than haute cuisine, but you can get a good roast there, the selection of meats satisfies Maggot 1's insatiable carnivore appetite, and we will all have a nice lunch, paid for by GG.

Other than that, we intend to take it easy, no doubt watching The Voice UK, Britain's Got Talent and the paint in the shower room drying.  We will also be recording for later consumption The Bridge, which is on BBC Four and the latest from what may begin to be called their "Danish season".  Having already seen The Killing 1 US version, The Killing 2 DK version, starting to watch The Killing 1 DK on DVD, and more recently The Killing 2 US which has just started on TV, it is fair to say we are loving the Danish output.  Right now, The Bridge is about as good as it gets.  I have said previously that having subtitles means you have to concentrate 100%, and that concentration really engages and emerges you in the action, so that you get a lot out of the viewing.  I absolutely love The Bridge, and if you have not seen it already then I would definitely recommend you get it on iPlayer because it is a cracker.

Have a good weekend, speak next week.
