Another week closer to Christmas. I’ve already had my first mince pie and it’s still November!
A session at the golf centre and a practice session with Andy at the golf club seen Ethan getting a bit more speed on the ball. We’re getting as many lessons as we can in outdoors while we still have the light, but there are only a few more weeks left before even this will be impossible due to shorter days.
Over the weekend we went to Jennifer’s cousins 40th birthday party. It was great to see everyone together including a visit from Jennifer’s cousins and uncle from Wales. We’re planning a trip down for next year to see them. I am split though between taking the golf clubs or the mountain bike.
Last week Jennifer and I decided to start watching Stranger Things. With all the hype around it, I still wasn’t even sure about the story or the characters. My sister-in-law described it brilliantly as the Goonies meets X-files. I might also go as far to add another movie in there, but that would give it away. Stranger Things season 1 was great television, but the best thing about it was the setting. The 80’s. There were so many things Jennifer and I could relate too. I highly recommend it.
On the flip side, The Walking Dead has been rather dismal for this season. It has peaked and dipped through each season, but I can’t remember it being as slow as it is now. Sure there have been some real low points when characters are killed off, but that’s just part of the story, and in a world of zombies it’s just one of two ways to go. There was only one scene for me in last week’s episode that had any emotion about it. I’m sticking with it though. I’ve watched every season so far, and I hope that it can get better before it gets any worse.
Also still enjoying Star Trek Discovery but with a busy couple of weeks we’ve fallen behind in episodes. Will be catching up this week though.
