And another 6 months later....

So, this updating LJ thing is going really well, isn't it???

Am currently stuck working from home (as much as I can when I don't have my work laptop and thus access to the systems I need is severely curtailed....) because of Ex-Hurricane / Storm Ophelia, and decided that this is as good as a time as any to update!!

Worst of the storm hasn't hit the East Coast (where I am) yet, but the south of the country is getting battered and there's a high tide due right in the middle of it all, so it's very not good......

TV wise, still behind on everything - but if you follow me on Tumblr, you know that I've fallen in love with Strike, the 2no mini-series that the BBC commissioned based on the Cormoran Strike novels by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) - seriously, if you haven't watched them you should, because they're excellent!! Cinematography is gorgeous, and casting Holliday Grainger as Robin is inspired! Tom Burke wasn't quite how I pictured Cormoran (I had him in my head as older, more dishevelled) but he completely won me over about 10 minutes into the first ep.

And thanks to helsinkibaby, I've been re-watching one of my earliest fandoms, The Flying Doctors!!! (Almost 30 years later, the season one finale still reduces me to a sobbing wreck!)

I do have thoughts on this season of Strictly, but I think that's going to be a seperate post as it shall doubtless be long!!

How has everyone else been?
