late card is late

I've started watching The Bletchley Circle, a new drama about ex-codebreakers turned detectives. It's a heady mix of post-war fashion, serial killers and the complex issue of folding yourself back into ordinary life after the war; the struggling with women's place in society gives it a bittersweet girl's comic touch, as if the Four Marys had grown up, gone to war, and were back fighting the slings and arrows of outrageous and ordinary existence. I find it nice, but YMMV -- I seem to remember at least someone saying it was wrong in every possible way. Anyone gone through the link and thinking, hang about, isn't that her from Bonekickers, yes it is. Nothing on fire yet but I have high hopes. Other news: there's a Hobbycraft in Oxford, off the Botley Road. Picked up some cut-price promarkers! They also have haberdashery, wool, baking paraphernalia, etc.

Also: late wedding card is very late.

Mysterious card! Anniversary!
... or, maybe? shelf of CARDS!

Oxford post has its moments ... and this one may be my favourite.
