I'm still low key freaking out about the cost.

But my wife's usually the one doing that and she's pretty zen so I don't know what's wrong with me here.

Just stumbled across this:


Peter Jackson's latest project will be amongst us soon. Looks to be an absolute belter.

We quite often see Peter Jackson's bi-planes flying over the house.

I guess I have finally gone full yank.

Nice. My first trip to Abu Dhabi was in a Silverado, the city is sort of on a grid and I'll never forget the guy saying, 'watch this' and flooring it round a U-Turn to get the back end swinging out. Hilarious.

Found a shop in Toronto that sells Russett Apples. 2 Brits in front of us buying the same.

I read about that a while ago and will make sure to watch it.

About the same time, we watched a 6 part series about Paul McCartney with Rick Rubin. Worth watching…

20 minutes of fun with McCartney and James Corden. For some reason I found it surprisingly moving - the old geezer and the younger man taking such pleasure in the music together.

We enjoyed it. Macca comes across as a very ordinary guy. I’ve posted this before…hubby met him years ago, a few days later several of his ‘doodles’ appeared in the mail. All signed. Maybe one day they will be worth a pretty penny.

Shopping in Morrisons this morning, Christmas special offer, 'After Eight' with a new flavour (Flavor for our American friends) of 'Mint and Mojito', never had a Mojito, but I've now had some After Eights with the flavour.
