First Thing Sunday Morning,

we were up and out,

naturally it was raining,

as we walked into Beckenham,

to the tram stop,

we had to go to Croydon, it was time for Diana's British Citizenship Test, which has to be completed as a part of her visa to stay in the UK,

having found the building I left Diana there and made my way home, Diana had to be there half an hour before the test to register, the test would take one hour, a deserted Surrey Street,

not many in the High Street either, 

good news, Diana passed the test, so 'Cheers!' and a big 'Well Done' to Diana, if you want to see how British you are here is the test, give it a try, you might not be as British as you think you are!

for our Sunday lunch, scallops in butter with dry toast,


for our main course pork with crackling,

without gravy for myself, we both decided against a dessert, 

more good news it is Donna's birthday, so lets get ready for a party at the new house, Dioshane on the right,

the house is coming on a treat,

everybody getting ready for the party,

Diana decided to watch a few films, so we started with her first choice, a favourite from when I was a kid, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, from the novel by Jules Verne, the oceans during the late 1860-92s are no longer safe; many ships have been lost, but who or what is sinking them, a real boys own adventure, we both enjoyed it immensely,

Diana's second choice was Onibaba, we have mentioned the film before a few times on our blog, and this is what I wrote in one of the posts, 'Onibaba (鬼婆, lit. Demon Hag), it is a1964 Japanese historical drama horror film written and directed by Kaneto Shindo, the film is set during a civil war in the fourteenth century, Nobuko Otowa and Jitsuko Yoshimura play two women who kill soldiers to steal their possessions, and one, the mother, appears to conjure up a demon, a slightly scary what some would call a 'Art' film,

we rounded off the evening with another favouriteExcalibur, plot, music, actors, costumes and pace, this film has it all, a joy to watch again, and also try to identify actors, as it was made in 1981, and many have not aged well! and with that we were off to bed.
