Deer deer…

I was out running a couple of days ago when I saw a deer run across the road in front of me and disappear into some undergrowth.  I approached with caution, expecting the deer to take fright and carry on running across the field.  Instead, I found this.

The road is a fairly quiet one but I’m amazed it made itself at home here.  Needlessly to say I took a couple of quick photos then headed off as I didn’t want to disturb it.

I Know I Should Be Flattered But….

..yesterday I went into my local supermarket to buy a small bottle of brandy for a Christmas present.

The woman at the checkout asked me if I had I.D. with proof of my age.  In this country the customer has to be at least 18 in order to purchase alcohol.

I am 42.

She told me I should take it as a compliment.  I didn’t feel flattered, I only felt my cheeks burning red as though I’d been caught doing something I wasn’t supposed to.

Normally when you are younger you want to look older and when you are older you want to look younger.  I would just settle for not being mistaken as an 18 year old!

SPECTRE – My Review

I completely forgot to post my thoughts on the new James Bond film which I saw last week.  So here’s my comprehensive and thorough review:-

Is it as good as Skyfall?……..not quite

Is it still awesome though?…..absolutely

Is Daniel Craig the Best Bond Ever?………without a doubt.

There we go.  I think that’s covered all of the important points!

Bonfire Night 2015

Yesterday was Bonfire Night which involves the lighting of a bonfire and a big firework display. (the actual Bonfire Night date is 5th November, but usually the displays take place at the weekend.)

The idea behind the whole night is to remember the Gunpowder Plot of 1605.  It’s always well supported and thankfully the weather last night wasn’t too bad (for November at least!) Here’s a small video I took of the fireworks.
