  1. What films have you seen recently?

    I've finally got round to watching The Hobbit films. I thought the first one was a bit of a slog, and ended up fast forwarding a few bits, but the 2nd and 3rd films were much better, although I did think that the love triangle was superfluous, and sometimes with all the different battles going on I wasn't always sure who was fighting who exactly! It was of course very padded out and no way should it have been 3 films, two would have been stretching it but overall I thought they were better than I expected. Not as good as LotR though, however I did think Martin Freeman was well cast as Bilbo and was excellent in the role.
  2. Have a Rant!

    Sorry to hear that Momac, and that the medical profession is being so offhand with you, it must be incredibly worrying. Hope you get some answers soon.
  3. I just bought/borrowed/received...

    I enjoyed House on The Strand, it's a bit different to her usual books but I liked it, might seem a bit far-fetched though!
  4. what is everyone doing?

    have a great time Binker! I had today off work, so naturally it's rained all day, yesterday was lovely and no doubt tomorrow will be too. Picked up my prescription sunglasses so hopefully will get to use them.

    Sounds like a good plan Momac, and a sensible one. Good that you're having help too, hope all goes well.

  12. 10th Anniversary

    Happy 10th anniversary! I'm a newbie here, I joined last year as my regular forum was closing, however it's now re-opened but this forum is such a nice one I'm staying with it, I didn't realise it had been around for so long.

    Sorry to hear that, good to hear he's improved though and that you sound so positive. -21 wow, stay warm!
  14. Currently Reading

    I'm not that into short stories either, but sometimes they can be an easy read, and you can dip in and out of a collection, they're especially good if you don't fancy a long book for some reason. The British Library do some good collections on various themes, mainly crime.
