Fox Talbot Museum and Lacock Abbey

20130727-204312.jpgWe went to Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot museum today.

Having joined the National Trust earlier this year it was time we got some more use out of our membership so we went to the local tourist attraction that draws 1000s of visitors every year – except for us!

It was kinda fun. I like looking and old stuff and taking photos occasionally, though I didn’t take a camera today and had to make do with the phone. The kids enjoy looking around old buildings like this – marvelling at how people used to live and wondering where the TV is!

Obviously they filmed parts of Harry Potter here it was fun to see some of the locations.

As you can see the kids enjoyed dressing up a little too.

It’s now spent the rest of the afternoon chucking down with rain, which has its good and bad points. Good because my wife has decided not to do the car boot sale tomorrow morning which means I can get out for a bike ride. Bad because it’s going to be muddy and greasy… I shouldn’t moan as that’s usually par for the course in the uk, but we have been spoilt this last month with such dry weather and sunshine.

I am sure I’ll cope though!

Dexter returns

Started watching the latest season of Dexter tonight. Great to have it back on the TV.

I’ve actually watched quite a bit of TV today, using the new Sky Go download service.

Watched the Pilot Episode of Vegas with Dennis Quaid doing an impression of Harrison Ford through the whole thing… It was good actually, and made part of my train journey go quicker.

So a quick overview of our tv viewing is – Dexter, The Walking Dead, The Following, Stella and now I’ve added Vegas to the list…

Breaking Bad – what’s the fuss?

Breaking Bad – I know its not new but I haven’t seen one episode yet. My nephew just loaned my 4 series on DVD and I will try and find time to start watching this week.

In other TV news, The Walking Dead returned last night. Good action and gritty story again but I’m not sure about Rick and his hallucinations. Hope the hole thing doesn’t turn out to be a dream and he wakes from a coma in the end…

And in yet more TV news Dexter returns on the 24th Feb. That I cannot wait for!
