And for tea tonight we have

Buttered Crumpets, Scones (with jam and cream) and Chocolate Cake ~ I shall return to being diabetic tomorrow.

Mrs S was in a baking mood.

I opened up one of thsoe stollen thingies earlier and made a pot of tea. I have now had rather too much cake.

Still, got the house to myself all day and "The Spy who Came in from teh Cold" is on the box.

Feet up!

I like those cakes but we had to stop getting them as minimus has a nut allergy.

Bugger ~ missed the fact that "Spy who ......." was on. Great movie and one to watch many times over .... Watched Wild Geese on video the other day ~ another goody .... they just don't make 'em like that any more ... but then few of today's "stars" have anything like the presence of Burton, Moore and Harris.

Also channel surfing the other night (unable to sleep again) I fell over "Smiley's People" ~ Brilliant!!!

How could you have missed it?

And yes Excellent is the word ~ captures all the early Le Carre storytelling brilliance and Burton's brooding presence just fits perfectly.

Burton was on top form - playing himself as usual.

And a cast of actors all of whom were familiar from that era.

And Claire Bloom eyes:

We're having bangers too ~ but for supper when the tribe returns from the 9 Carols and 9 Lessons service at Cwm Parish Church.
I, however, feel agoraphobic so will stay at home and drink green tea ~ in perfect harmony with myself.  cloud9:
