“He’s on our side,” I shouted to Finan. “He looks like a rat,” Finan snarled. “His name,” I said, “is Sihtric, and he once swore me an oath of loyalty.” “Still looks like a rat, he does.” “Are you on our side?” I called to Sihtric, “or did you rejoin your father’s troops?” “Lord, lord!” Sihtric came running to me and fell to his knees in the trampled mud beside my horse. “I’m still your man, lord.” “You didn’t take an oath to Guthred?” “He never asked me, lord.” “But you served him? You didn’t run back to Dunholm?” “No, lord! I stayed with the king.” “He did,” Gisela confirmed. I gave Serpent-Breath to Gisela, then reached down and took Sihtric’s hand. “So you’re still my man?” “Of course, lord.” He was clutching my hand, gazing at me with disbelief. “You’re not much use, are you,” I said, “if you can’t beat a skinny Irishman like him?” “He’s quick, lord,” Sihtric said. “So teach him your tricks,” I told Finan, then I patted Sihtric’s cheek. “It’s good to see you, Sihtric.” #uhtred #sihtric  #thelastkingdom #netflix #bbc2 #sihtricsunday #alexanderdreymon #arnasfedaravicius #teamuhtred #season2

We reckoned we were safe in Bebbanburg for it had never fallen to an enemy’s assault, yet my father and uncle were still worried that the Danes had returned to Northumbria. “They’re looking for food,” my father said. “The hungry bastards want to land, steal some cattle, then sail away.” I remembered my uncle’s words, how the ships had been at the mouth of the Tine trading furs for dried fish, so how could they be hungry? But I said nothing. I was ten years old and what did I know of Danes? I did know that they were savages, pagans and terrible. I knew that for two generations before I was born their ships had raided our coasts.  #uhtred #thelastkingdom #netflix #bbc2 #alexanderdreymon #dane #saxon #bernardcornwell #saxonstories #warriorchronicles

Forced Marriages and Honour Killings.  A slightly different post which I think needs to be shared and people need to be made aware of. I cannot imagine life for some Asian females, and to think that parents are involved in this is so heartbreaking.  Disclaimer: not all Asian families are like this. 95% of Asian families are forward thinking and would never put there own children at harm.  Any organisations that are involved into coming into schools to talk about Forced Marriages and Honour Killings please do get in touch! . . . #forcedmarriage #forcedmarriages #honour #community #indian #pakistani #documentary #honourkilling #news #support #faith #marriage #helpinghand #women #power #culture #ego #pride #familyhonour #bbc #doc #bbc2 #teachers #teaching #pshe #social #devleopments #religion #minority
"In the worlds before #monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order. But the phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven and the moisture of Earth, the powers of the sun and the moon all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation. And it became magically fertile. The first egg was named "Thought". Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said, "With our thoughts, we make the world." Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible" - the opening spiel of the classic #nhk show Monkey, a regular watch for me on #bbc2 back in the day. This is the #soundtrack #lp, music by #japanese band #godiego, that I bought a very long time ago (as the slightly worn sleeve testifies). #vinyl #bbcrecords

It's been a very boringly chill day... not fun. Also, apparently Stephen Fry was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had surgery last month... sounds so awful. I'm not one to take interest in celebrities but I've been a huge fan of his since I can remember... 😕 . . . #nerdlife #geek #gamer #gaming #videogames #playstation #ps3 #food #vegam #veganmeal #salad #healthyfood #bbc #bbc2 #qi #stephenfry #english #comedy #greek #uk

“I am so overjoyed to see you,” he said, still smiling, “my old valued friend!” “Jarl Haesten,” I responded, giving him the title he liked to use, though in my mind Haesten was nothing but a pirate. I had known him for years. I had saved his life once, which was a bad day’s work, and ever since that day I had been trying to kill him, yet he always managed to slither away. He had escaped me five years before and, since then, I had heard how he had been raiding deep inside Frankia. He had amassed silver there, had whelped another son on his wife, and had attracted followers. Now he had brought eighty ships to Wessex. “I hoped Alfred would send you,” Haesten said, holding out a hand. “If Alfred hadn’t ordered me to come in peace,” I said, taking the hand, “I’d have cut that head off your shoulders by now.” “You bark a lot,” he said, amused, “but the louder a cur barks, lord, the weaker its bite.” I let that pass.  #thelastkingdom #uhtred #haesten #netflix #bbc2 #theburningland #saxonstories WarriorChronicles #bernardcornwell #alexanderdreymon #jeppebecklaursen #dane #saxon #vikings #warriors
