Yesterday's trip to the cinema was a pleasant enough way to pass a couple of hours. There were quite a few laughs mixed in with all the super hero fantasy, but quite a strange ending. If that ending was designed to make us go back to see the next Avengers film, assuming there is going to be one, it's worked - we have to know how 'it' all gets resolved.
There are plenty of birds visiting the garden now - no photos yet as I still haven't sorted out the problem with loading them to the blog. I had the French doors open while I was eating my lunch and saw a very busy blackbird, quite a few starlings and sparrows, a magpie, loads of pigeons, and a chaffinch (I think). It was at the far end of the garden and moving quickly so I didn't get a good look at it but I heard a chaffinch calling so there was one in the area somewhere.
I'm thinking of giving the U3A another go, this time with the Bradford on Avon branch. From their website they seem to be much more organised than the branch I tried before and they have a better choice of active group I'd be interested in. Just looking through the list of groups there's scrabble, rummikubs, card games, easy walks, family history, photography, boules, and country dancing. Some of these groups meet monthly, some fortnightly and a couple are weekly, so I'll have to put my thinking cap on and decide which ones I'd like to try. The decision may be made for me as the next step is to contact the organisers to see if there are still spaces in my chosen groups and if there are any extra costs in addition to the annual membership fee. That'll probably be a job for next week.
