We Had A Quiet Day,

so we did not take any pictures,

 after our evening meal Barry popped into say hello and wish us a Happy New Year, after he left we started watch The White Queen, the year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King, it is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster, three different, yet equally relentless women - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville, in their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne, the few episodes that we watched was great viewing, 

to round the evening of we continued with Peaky Blinders, which just gets better and better, this is what we wrote when we first started to watch the first series, 'the name is of a gang in Birmingham, so called as razor blades were sewn into the peaks of their caps and then used as a weapon giving the user extra reach and always aiming for the opponents eyes, hence the name of the gang, it was so good we watched another two episodes, the series is set in Birmingham and has it's roots in the history of the times, to say it is good is a total understatement, it is excellent, everything, the backdrops, acting, story-line are all spot on, really enjoyable', Netflix announced the new series and it is just so good, as the midnight hour approached we were then of to bed.
