If you've hung around with me for a
while you'll know that
Friday is the day for remembering
the week's 'happies'.
There's a happy band of Rockers
and we 'meet up' over at
Virginia's blog Celtic House.
There's always room for more, just
pop over to Virginia with your
'Rocking' blog post and link up.
So, on with what has made my week
better this week -
Coffee and catch up with my dear friend Dawn.
We don't see enough of each other because
of work and family commitments,
and it was lovely to spend a couple of hours
with her, before we got on with our lives again.
Luke, who managed to catch Cally-Cat
as she tumbled down the stairs from our
loft room (a spiral staircase). He was watching
her as she went up the stairs, when she decided to
stop and scratch half way up. Being rather
wobbly she misjudged this and she fell -
straight into his waiting hands! She looked
rather surprised to be placed gently back onto
the floor, and couldn't work out why she
wasn't at the top of the stairs!
Well done, Luke.
Hope, who managed to get through a
heavy week of school exams without
getting herself into a total pickle.
She got to choose the dvd for family
viewing tomorrow night,
I'll let you know what we think.
Grant, for not despairing when I brought
home a great storage unit for my
that I bought from a charity shop.
What he DID say was, "You'll NEVER fit that in there."
Up to that point I had kinda quietly thought the same,
but once he said that I just HAD to prove
him wrong, didn't I?! Well it took a couple
of days, but it's in, it's in use, and
conservatory studio is cleaned and tidied.
And Grant, it DID fit in there!
Luke, Hope and I went to see
last night at our local cinema in Oxted, Surrey.
Now, when we booked it there were 2 dates
available, one with Benedict Cumberpatch
as the creature and Jonny Lee Miller
as Victor Frankenstein, and on
the other date the roles were reversed.
We specifically booked yesterday
which had the creature played by
Benedict Cumberpatch. Unfortunately,
the cinema showed the wrong one, doh!
I have to say it was still brilliant.
Jonny Lee Miller was outstanding as
the creature, and Benedict Cumberpatch was
excellent as Frankenstein.
As a result of the cinema's mistake,
we've been offered free tickets to the next
film of our choice :o)
I REALLY enjoyed the play/film.
The production was really imaginative
and heart rending. I felt so sad
for the creature, rejected by everyone,
including his own creator.
It was a different experience, watching a play
on a screen, but I loved it.
Hope enjoyed it (although she squirmed a bit
at a rather graphic rape scene).
Luke didn't really 'get' it, and missed the slick
action of a 'proper' film. He said he thought
he would have enjoyed it more if he'd actually
been in the theatre audience.
online class has started.
I've had a quick look and downloaded
the pdfs, and I'm looking forward to having a
go at some of the techniques.
If you missed out on this one
there'll be another one in August 2012.
Ok, that's it for today.
I'll link up with Virginia and visit
the other Rockers later.
I'm just going to make Grant a cup of tea,
who's suffering because he's watching the
England v Sweden
Euro 2012 football match.
If he had any hair he'd be tearing it out!
Have a lovely weekend,
