My week off has largely consisted of sitting on the sofa watching daytime telly. Sad I know, but Elly is back at university now, doing her Part 2.

Today’s Midsomer Murders featured a very young-looking Orlando Bloom. That was scary enough, but in one of the rare moments when I was actually paying attention, the big boss and Troy appeared to be talking about Tolkien/Lord of the Rings! Not sure whether that was sychronicity or a specific dig, but it made me do a complete double-take!
