When you have spent the afternoon watching I Capture the Castle.
Followed by The Bishop's Wife (Cary Grant, 1947, great skating scene).
Then Brief Encounter (for the umpteenth time, but you've never noticed before that Celia Johnson has such very bad skin).
And then it was straight into The Passionate Friends. (More Trevor Howard, still asking "Are you happy?" And was that the same coffee percolator as the one in Brief Encounter?)
Well, no wonder there's only sausages for dinner.
And perhaps it is time to get off the sofa and get back to work.
