all the cinemas I've seen only have this in French. Has anyone seen this in English yet or have any idea when it will be available to buy. I loved the book and am dying to see the film.

You can tell i'm getting a bit bored at the mpment, I suppose it's the end of the summer and the dark mornings and early nights. So wht do you get up to at weekends? I seem to shop, organise the house, nip out for a beer or two in the local bar on saturday evening and practice my French at some of the local guys. I'm not sure my language is very good and i don't understand half of what they're saying but we seem to communicate pretty well. Then its backt o the house and the goggle box. I do like the sunday ritual though Late breakfast, lazy lunch and a few glasses of plonk, settle down in front of the fire for the evenings telly with a sunday tea.

I'm always on the look out for new things to read and have quite varied taste. So what are you reading at the moment. I'm reading a very interesting book about the Congo called "Blood River  - a journey to Africa's broken heart" by Tim Butcher.  It's quite an eye opener and makes you realise why the region is so messed up. Its a very good read and not all history as it tells the story of the author following Stanleys footsteps. Somethinhg a bit more up beat i think next time though.

We love blues music and were looking to find a suitable venue somewhere in the region that hosted blues music at the weekend. Doesn't matter where it is as we're happy to make a weekend of it...

I don't normally rave about films but we went to see this on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed it. really worth making the effort to go and see it and it is very well done indeed.

IJust found this on the blog! In Beauvais on the 20th to the 24th May there is a music festival with a difference, this is a Cello festival, although there are other performers too, this year they are featuring English music, and have some well known performers, go and see. http://www.beauvaistourisme.fr/Actualites/Festival-de-violoncelle-de-Beauvais Meanwhile in Gerberoy on the 7 & 8th May there is a medieval fete, this is to celebrate 1435 and the battle of Gerberoy, unfortunately against the English, but I am sure they will have forgotten all about that by now. They have a full programme including, cavaliers on horseback, archers, games and music as well as medieval food and drink.
