We returned back to Lincoln with D's birthday present from his Mum and Dad - a Playstation 3. I know nothing about this sort of thing but he asked for one because it is also a Blu Ray player (eh? what? not a clue). Suffice to say that this system makes the picture better. D had bought me Sherlock Holmes so that was the first film we watched on our new Blu Ray player. It was just as good as it had been at the cinema. What a great film! Funny, thoughtful, witty sleuthing in a magnificently reconstructed Victorian London. And, of course, Robert Downey Jnr in the lead role.
And today it is D's birthday. We are going for tea at a place called Damon's. It has been recommended and the birthday boy eats for free. Bargain! They even give him a cake. I'm hoping they'll make him stand up while they sing 'Happy Birthday'. That would be hilarious!
D and I have concluded that Lincoln has been hot for the past month. Man, you get some serious weather down here. We are not used to it at all. It is just baking! All our windows are open and D was lying on the balcony at 11pm the other night. Phew!
Anyways, I am going to carry on with Virginia Woolf's Between the Acts and get ready to go out. Enjoy the evening.
