Snap! One flew by our window at lunchtime!

ETA ... and I've dried 2 loads of washing outside today, and just hung out a third. :D

Spring - in the form of Wilf the tortoise - officially arrived yesterday.

Of course, this means that we've already experienced a downturn in the weather today (drizzling and cooler). And the last time I remember him coming out of hibernation before March was 1994 when we then had snow over Easter... So perhaps not exactly the right thread in which to be posting this after all...

Just got back from an excellent evening at Munich Opera where the lovely Joseph Calleja was singing in "Carmen".

Oh it's lovely - how long are you going for? Try and find time for the Hundertswasserhaus and nearby museum (Kunst Haus Wien). It's fascinating and something a bit different. We loved the Secession, too, and of course the Belvedere, with 'The Kiss' and other Klimt stuff ...

I agree with all these suggestions! :-) Enjoy, exile!

Emma, we are a book club of 2 ! Others wanted to join but it was hard to fix a first day so we went ahead and others can join.

Definitely enjoy Exile but be sure to pack layers and especially thermals. It can be bitterly cold at this time of year and although the forecast looks promising if it should change, it could ruin your stay.

I speak from bitter experience. There's a particularly nasty chill wind that blows.... :(

Good to hear everyone's happy news.

I had breakfast at work yesterday, a good chance to catch up with people I don't often get chance to chat to.

I went along expecting croissants, pastries, etc, only to discover that (free) bacon rolls were on offer! They were delicious and it filled me up so much that I couldn't eat the sandwich I'd taken for lunch later.

I hope it becomes a more regular event, but not too often, as it wouldn't do my waistline any good!

I had a lovely day at Comic Con. I met Jonathan Frakes, James Marsters and Kevin Sorbo, and managed not to become a babbling wreck in front of any of them. There's something really uplifting about being in a building full of nerds, too. It's like everyone is part of the same community, you can talk to whoever you happen to be standing beside as if you've always known each other, and nobody is going to turn on you for being a nerd.
I also resisted the urge to bring home a dragon-headed katana. But I handled it lovingly at the stall!

I went to Chirk Castle today, and there were daffodils everywhere. I'm a bit obsessive about daffodils, and there are certain places I like to go to in the spring because they always have particularly good displays :lol: . Having been woken up by torrential rain at half 5 and then had to clear sleet off the car windscreen when I got up, I nearly decided not to go, but the sun managed to come out when I got there. I have snowdrop places and bluebell places as well, but daffodils are my favourites. I'd have been one of those annoying CS girls who held everyone else up by obsessing over the flowers, like Irma does in And Jo and various people do in Exploits :lol: .
