I usually read when I am on the train, but as My Ipad has dragged my sorry arse into the 21st Century this year, I have downloaded a few cinematic and TV treats to enjoy as the slow train chugs through Manchester and over the Pennines to Sheffield.
My arthouse watch is Yossi, an Israeli film which centres upon the long term grief and loss suffered by a former defence force soldier for his fellow officer and partner, who was killed in the Lebanon.....while my indulgent watches will be two episodes from the first series of The Walking Dead
and the Norwegian Horror movie Død Snø ( Dead Snow).
|Don't worry, I have headphones|
I am not meeting up with the first of my friends until early evening, so will have a few hours city time this afternoon......
I will do John Lewis, have a mooch around the city, and if the mood takes me, will even buy myself a superior quality scotch Egg from the deli on West Street to eat slowly and carefully in the Peace Gardens next to the city hall
I am so easily pleased...........
