Harry Potter and The Deathy Hallows was fantastic. It was scary and dark and cold and mesmerising. I didn't look at the time once, or even think of doing it. If you have been reading the books and following the films, then it is a must see. I think the critics who pooh-pooh it aren't fans. I am glad they decided to split the last book into two films, it means the story will be told properly.
MrsDrWho and I have a new Going To The Pictures Rule. Way back in 2005 we went to see Kingdom of Heaven with Orlando Bloom (no, he didn't accompany us, he was in the film) and we went on Half Price Tuesday. The theatre was full of the noisiest, rudest people. It spoiled the film.
Rule One is No Tuesdays.
Rule Two is, if the twenty-somethings behind us are rowdy and raucous during the ads and the previews, we must move to quieter seats. Honestly, they must have thought they were at home. They talked and made noises all the way through. Not Happy Jan.
Last week I did something every day and it was too much for me in the end. Still, je ne regrette rien:
- Tuesday: Leukaemia Support Group and Trivia
- Wednesday: MrsDrWho's school
- Thursday Harry Potter Film
- Friday: TinkingBell came to visit (3 hours of talking, some car driving and a little shopping)
- Saturday: WeeJockandBessie'sMum's birthday
Here's the delicious food. I had the salmon nicoise, first on the middle row, and the lemon marscapone parfait with almond tuile and raspberry sorbet, very last on the last row.
So on Sunday I was very poorly. I was the kind of poorly where I needed a hot waterbottle for my feet to stop me feeling shivery and my lovely crocheted facecloth dunked in cold water and draped across my forehead to keep me cool. Doona: on. Window: wide open.
Also I had very weird dreams. I dreamed someone stole our toilet, I got up and it was gone, so I locked the door (it was our toilet from home when I was little, it had a door to the outside) and I went to ring the police...then I woke up and thought what a silly dream...till I went into the toilet and it was gone and I locked the door and went to ring the police.. by the third time I woke up I was getting more than a little worried, but I was actually properly awake. I haven't been up to very much at all, I have read blogs in my reader and not really commented. I think I am on the mend......
I hope I am on the mend.....
Everyone is so kind to leave such lovely get well comments. Thank you very much indeed.
Yesterday The Dog Car had a flat battery. There we all were, wearing our seatbelts, and I turned the key and nothing happened. We went for a little walk to the shop. Gilly does silly waiting. Maybe she is making a wish??
The RACT man came and put in a new battery. They replaced my last battery 5 years ago so I certainly had my money's worth out of it. The Labradors didn't like waiting at the gate. They felt all left out. We did go for a proper walk at the dam after that.
I have to thank The Australian Women's Weekly. My mum really wanted one of their books that was out of print, and I was extremely suspicious that their 'official' site was in the UK so I emailed them for help. The lovely Olivia said she had found the book my mum wanted in their office and that she would send it to me. Just like that. How kind. Well done AWW. (Something else I had to say... can't remember)
I have a stamp. I am not very good at stamping.
I have made a Nigella's Raspberry Chocolate Pudding Cake for MrsDrWho's turn at Morning Tea tomorrow. It is a good recipe because it is all melt and mix. I am going to drop it off at her house. I can do that because even though it is 28*Cinside and hotter outside, I have the Air-Con in The New Car!!! I am supposed to go to Trivia tonight, and I really want to go, but I don't think I will be able to. I need to rest up and feel better.
Yesterday: The 47th anniversary of the assassination of JFK. He would have been 93. Camelot.
Today: Similarly, the 47th Anniversary of Doctor Who. Happy days indeed.
There, I'm hot and tired now. I'm going to have some lunch and a shower and then venture out. I apologise if some of this doesn't make sense!!!
Thanks Kristen, I have fixed the anniverary dates which did not make sense!!
