Gyms and nuns

A leisurely start to the weekend. Then back to the gym for me. Hard work, and a week or so of gormandising and boozing certainly took their toll in terms of fitness. Good to do some sweating though. Met Lorraine afterwards, who had been shopping, and we scampered home in the rain. Curiously, both of us in need of a holiday after our holiday.

In the evening Lorraine and I sauntered down to the Duke of York Picture House to see Philomena, starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. A film in which the Irish Catholic Church and nuns come out of looking particularly poorly, selling children to American couples in the 50s. Based on true events, and a story covered by journalist Martin Sixsmith, who is played by Coogan in the film. Lorraine and I both enjoyed this.

Back in time for Match of the Day too... Although Chelsea mysteriously lost. A single glass of sherry with my wife on the sofa. All well.
