  1. When abroad I would order my Dad his favourite foods and wine from Sainsburys as a home delivery. Not giving much care for branding and packaging, he was over the moon with this. If presentation matters (which to be fair is important for most people when reviewing a gift) then an actual hamper would be better even if less value.

  3. I feel like I must be one of the few people that found Groundhog just very annoying, and wasn’t that into Silence of the Lambs. Mind you it’s a tricky era for me as most films were watched as a kid (the number of kids films being evident of that) or retrospectively.

  5. Thanks for all the work on the right ups I certainly feel inspired to go back and watch some that I missed at the time
  6. Blood orange sorbet is one of the nicest things I've every tasted

    Coffee

    Just thought I'd plonk this here as I've heard mention of the Algerian Coffee Store
  8. I kicked started getting back into reading by finding two books in a second hand bookstore on the weekend. A Darker State by David Young, part of the Karin Muller series, was consumed in three days and satisfied my detective habit (big fan of all things Michael Connolly) plus a bit of cold-war thrown in. Was nice to read a well formed female lead in this genre too. In the Shadow of Papillon by Frank Kane is an interesting read of life in a Venezuelan prison. But I'm finding the auto-biography aspect reminds me of a certain banned poster.
  9. I'm happy Children of Men is getting so much. one of my favourite films of all time.
  10. Not often but yes. In an almost empty screen it can make the right film extremely tense or spooky.
  11. Those look seriously yum @Gotters I've been on the soup and strews recently, did a Beef goulash and looking to do Borscht next. Do you have a link to your coup tupperwear by any chance?

  13. @Gotters I've been seriously considering making batches of soup for work lunches this winter. Over the summer I've been making layered salads in a big jar every morning to take in, but now the weathers snapped I don't think that's going to cut it. I can't stretch to anywhere near a Thermomix at the moment (maybe a soup wand lol), but none the less you've inspired me
  14. I'm wondering if an Ikea Hack might be possible, rather then building from scratch.
  15. Building up a collection stopped as we got busy and stopped playing what we already had. We had been in the habit of a game of something quick each evening after dinner. Also Coup felt like a bit of a let down, maybe it's just not very good with two players? But while on a trip to Bath I went charity shop hunting as my friend slept in and I found two games Rail Race and Billionaire for about 3 quid each, old. Neither seem amazing, but good enough to have some goes on.
