I saw her too.

GabriellaG54 Tue 12-May-20 09:09:54

Me too. Is Lara South African or Australian?
I detected a twang in her accent.
The ubiquitous bookcase in the background. 😳😁

I saw her too. She did represent us well, pitt.

Welcome bookbaby2. You could try the good morning thread if you haven't already.

I have a thing about the bookcase background, gabriella. Didn't we have a thread about it?

Pittcity Tue 12-May-20 09:17:43

The first I believe Gabriella
Welcome Bookbaby2. Why not tell us where you are and what the weather's like on the Good Morning thread.

Great minds Kitty...

sad I haven't got a bookcase.

University of Stellenbosch and University of Cape Town ... smile (there's nothing that can't be found on the innernet).

Well done fevertree! Saves me looking. 😘

Nortsat Tue 12-May-20 09:47:08

I have asked GNHQ to make the clip of β€˜Lara on the BBC’ available for us all to view ...

GabriellaG54 Tue 12-May-20 09:51:12

You can see it on iPlayer.

GabriellaG54 Tue 12-May-20 09:53:31

If you're gonna have a bookcase, have a big one full of interesting books that we have to screw our necks into unnatural poses in order to read the titles.

Niobe Tue 12-May-20 09:55:49

I sometimes have bookcase envy nowadays! Very distracting!πŸ˜ƒ

Puzzler61 Tue 12-May-20 10:00:59

Great idea Nortsat. I missed it so Thanks.

Just seen Lara on TV this morning and this was the first time I found out about gransnet. So I’ve signed up straightaway as I am one of those grandparents who does masses of childcare and now going through the challenges of keeping in touch.

It was either the bookcase or our laundry airer! I spared you seeing a family's worth of pants grin.
Here's a link to iPlayer - it's on around 8:25. Watching yourself on TV is definitely worse than hearing a recording of yourself. blush

tanith Tue 12-May-20 10:15:18

LaraGransnet I think we were well represented thank you.

trisher Tue 12-May-20 10:17:14

Ooh that was early! Were you in your jammies? Saw Rafe Spall on the other day pictured in front of what looked like a bar. He said it was more appropriate to what he was doing in lockdown!

LaraGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 12-May-20 10:23:39

Thank you. We do a lot of research on the threads to try to put your views across accurately so that means a lot to us. smile

Most certainly not in my jammies shock. I even brushed my hair for the occasion grin

Nortsat Tue 12-May-20 10:44:51

Well done Lara for representing us all in a balanced and positive way. πŸ’

Fennel Tue 12-May-20 11:51:32

Thanks for the link Lara - I found it.
And I agree with the others that you gave a balanced and positive view of Gransnet. So many different opinions on here.
