    Oh Lyn - Brideshead is my favourite piece of TV ever made. It was very faithful to the book too. My favourite book  ;)
    Did you know they were originally cast the other way round? 
    Hard to imagine now. His was a truly stunning piece of acting. He never did anything particularly outstanding after it really, although he's stuck mainly with theatre.

    Today is Art Garfunkel's birthday. Wonder if he got a new wig?  :D

    My birthday in late July usually coincided with the start of the school summer holidays which meant I'd be sitting in the back of my Dad's old Standard 10 on the way up to Scotland to go camping - not a good way to spend a birthday. At least I got out of being given the 'bumps' at school though! My OH's is on Thursday so he always got fireworks for his.

    I don’t keep many books to read again, but Brideshead is one that I will read over and over. I didn’t know they were cast the other way round. 
    I could listen to Jeremy Irons reading the phone book.

    Very pleased to find a new Rick Stein series on hidden France after professional Masterchef as it hadn't been trailed.  All going swimmingly until hislast dish of Andouillettes which are just too disgusting.  Foul smelling things.

    First cookery programme I think we've watched - out of sheer boredom of other programmes tonight - rather enjoyed it to my surprise, but I'm with you Obelixx about Andouillettes! OH once ordered it in a little village restaurant and the waitress did her best to talk him out of it. He likes trying new things but as you say, it was totally disgusting although he did manage to eat half. He got ribbed every time we went back there.

    I had no idea what Andouillettes are so did a search on Dr Google.  First entry I found was this and it's a great read as long as you have a strong stomach.  Just the descriptions are enough to start you heaving otherwise

    I think I'd rather eat a parsnip😝

    It’s ok folks ... I’m a huge fan of andouillettes and am willing, in fact I insist on
    eating on your share, your OHs’ shares and any others available. Really really love them 😋

    I'd rather eat my own hair.

    It makes Haggis look more appealing though. ;)
