Mr Holmes*

Read my book for an hour before the gym this morning. This one:

Have ordered Selena Hastings’ Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford biographies too. They are both paperback I think so can take them to Abroad if they arrive in time…

Darkest Hour is wonderful. Do see it. Gary Oldman in – I reckon – award-winning form as Winston Churchill, Ronald Pickup strong as Neville Chamberlain, Kristin Scott Thomas is good as Clemmie and Ben Mendelsohn from Bloodline is pretty good as the king. Three star review in The Sunday Times today but we enjoyed it much more than that. Also Whistlejacket is in it…

Work hard at Pilates today, see attached photo.

These popped up of Mum and the fluffy monster from a year ago today:

See how he loves his grandma.

Now am going to watch Mr Holmes which starts at 6.20pm. Have been meditating and sleeping. Am going to knit in front of my television.

Also feed birds, change their water and put some fat balls out for them and a coconut filled with fat and mealworms. I know they like that.

The attached photo is today at Pilates. Note the fake woodland scene.

Happy Sunday everyone!

*2015. Feature film. Stars Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Hiroyuki Sanada and Hattie Morahan. Directed by Bill Condon. Written by Jeffrey Hatcher, adapted from the novel by Mitch Cullin. Sherlock Holmes created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (obviously).

    Selina Hastings’s biography of Evelyn Waugh is superb – probably the best there is of him. I haven’t read the Nancy Mitford one yet but it would be good for a rainy day (though ultimately it is a sad story of unrequited love for Colonel Gaston Palewski).
