Have just returned from driving MWNN into London for his Founder's Day address marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth I
MWNN was quite the philistine before he became Headmaster of Queen Elizabeth's School, Barnet.
Finding himself presiding over a school that was over 400 years' old and having in his possession the original copy of the school's charter, signed by Elizabeth herself, has quite cured him of his heathen views on the value of history.
As I drove back, I was amazed by how beautiful the green belt around London was looking in the morning sunshine. The roads were empty, by UK standards, and I reflected once again at how priviledged I am to live in this part of the country and, despite all the gripes about how expensive, crowded, and wet England is, I love it!
On a more mundane note, I have just watched the penultimate episode
of BtVS (a big
thank you to willowfae
for taping the final episode and forwarding the CDs from catsyj
- they arrived safely yesterday.)
Was I mistaken, yesterday, willowfae
? Did Sky1 viewers vote Angel
as their favourite Buffy guy? And did Giles
come in as runner-up? Waaah, where's the blond Champion then? Perhaps he'll be on tonight's episode featuring 'Buffy's Buddies'? ETA
just had it all explained to me - yes, SKY1 viewers voted for Angel in 'Amends'
as their favourite Buffy Boy and their favourite episode. But no
Giles was not the tunner-up (apparently they're airingtwo different things at the moment; straight-forward re-runs; favourite Buffy's Buddies. Spike
was runner-up and Smashed
will air tonight. (not my favourite episode I have to say, but a girl will watch whatever Spikey goodness she is offered at the moment!)
