I should mention that the garden is next door to a fairly busy pub - possibly not so great when attempting to sleep!

Depends on the pub....

I live about (precisely) 19 paces from a busy local pub. The Landlord and Landlady are really good neighbours and the people who use it are great....

Were however the people that use the pub to be a bunch of chavs, it would be awful....

I'd go to the pub on a Friday and Saturday to check it out before making a decision.

I know this place, and it han get a little rowdy. Everywhere I'm looking is in the same town I currently work in, and I've lived here for about 25 years ;) It is just over the road from my favourite, though...

Know what I really want on a place? A balcony. Doesn't need to be massive. but I really want a balcony to do a barbeque on.

I'm watching Les Mis. There are some parts I like so far, but most of it is so all over the place it's ridiculous.

It seems to cut every 2 seconds, I hate the way it's been filmed. While I love the majority of the songs, some of the singing lacks emotion considering what's going on. For someone like me, who is pretty good at "getting" films, I'm really struggling with following the story. It's still a very good one, but at points is explained in a pretty shit way. The settings, costumes, makeup - all of that is brilliant, and I cannot fault that at all. Out of all the peoples' singing, I prefer Crowe's. The scenes I've liked the most so far have been with Carter and Cohen though.

I have a feeling it's "easier" for people who are either French or British to appreciate this, as most of those people seem to know the details of the story. The films seems to take for granted that you should do, which is a shame.

I've still got another 40 minutes or so to go, and I'm considering turning it off. Sorry, but not for me. TEAM DJANGO.

Moo, you are the only person I know in perhaps the whole world who prefers Crowe's singing. :lol:

I was actually majorly impressed with Crowe's singing.

He wasn't the best, but it was much better than I expected.

Stars and javert's suicide were pretty great.
