Bluebells and wild roses
Gorgeous weather on Good Friday. Lorraine and I went off to our usual woods to look at bluebells. We were never sure what this bit of wood was called, but its name is actually Bluebell Woods. Sauntered about happily in the fragrant pepperiness of the bluebells for a while, feeling lucky to be alive. Then a drive in the country, pausing at a garden centre, but buying nothing.
In the evening off to the Duke of York's Picture House. We saw the advert for Sky with Beth's bestie Olivia in it (as well as Idris Elba) then watched a movie called Wild Rose with Julie Walters utterly convincing as a Scottish grandma and Irish actress Jessie Buckley putting in a great job as a Glaswegian country singer. An entertaining film, bleakly dream crushing till the last reel when everything goes right.
Noticed the sign outside the Duke of York's Picture House afterwards, that there is a claim that this cinema is the oldest cinema in constant use in the country. They have been showing movies there since 1910. We're lucky to have this place just a stroll from home.
