Lovely long weekend.

Saturday we had some people over to watch England lose ignominiously to Portugal in the free kicks, despite my loyally wearing the England team shirt my mum-in-law had sent me a few Christmases back.

Lots of Doctor Who talk, which was interestingly problematic as some of the group have only seen Eccleston in the SciFi run and others of us had just seen the first half of the Tennant finale, but luckily, not a spoilerphobic bunch.

And of course, we saw "The Idiot's Lantern", which had M. all "look, look, it's the Ally Pally!" (Do they shoot some external shots outside of Cardiff? Obviously last season they did, but this season too? Because he swore that was the real Alexandra Palace, where he used to go for CBer rallies, since it was the highest ground in the vicinity.)
