Ep 4: Sparking joy after a loss - Margie

So, um, it turns out I can’t do this one as a live-blog. I can’t detach myself enough from it. The widow in this, despite having adult children, is not all that much older than I am and has lost her husband of many years unexpectedly. The idea of losing a long-standing partner so early, when you had so many plans still to come to fruition, is a bit too painful for me to face. Watching her go through his clothes was the worst, although I will say I was proud of her for standing up to MK and sweetly but firmly insisting on doing that when she wanted to and under the conditions she preferred (alone). And so I don’t end on that note, onward to the next episode.

Ep 5: Frank and Matt

Many spoiler, so CUTECollapse )

I bought the bottle on Monday to open on Friday if I managed to make it to the gym four times (I did!) and get onto the early-as-possible train after dropping off the kids (I did!) all this week. Let the fizz-drinking commence.

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo: Ep 1 [20190115|20:47]

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

Summary: Netflix series in which a disarmingly tiny Japanese woman goes into people’s homes, ostensibly to help them declutter their homes, but mostly to provide stealth relationship counseling.

Apparently this KonMari method of tidying is (was?) a bit of a craze, which naturally I have entirely missed. However, I got really into watching this, am presently alone in the evenings, and decided to live-blog it the way [personal profile] ankaret does with “The Bachelor/ette” series. (She’s much better at it than I am.) Anyway, if you’ve watched it or are watching it, please add in your own observations in the comments.

The excavated Roman Baths in the English town of Bath showcase a fraction of its former magnificence, but still manage to be quite impressive.

There are people in period costume roaming around during visitor hours. Humuhumu didn't meet this one, but she did meet a chap called Peregrinus, who was a Gaul.
