Good and Bad

Great movie... worth seeing! I actually saw it twice, first with dear friend B. It was sooo good I wanted PJ to see it too. We saw it over the weekend.
"The Vistor" - Vale is a dull widower and professor at a Connecticut university whose life is transformed for the better after he discovers Syrian squatters Tarek (a percussion artist) and his girlfriend Zainab (a jewellery maker), living in his New York apartment. When Tarek is taken into a corporate-run alien detention centre, Vale becomes his only conduit to the outside world and helps Tarek's mother Mouna with her efforts to free her son.

Bad movie... don't waste your time and money. Saw this with girlfriends last night. OK, we did laugh at some of the funny lines... but really, you can wait until it's on your cable channel.
"My Best Friend's Girl" When guys get dumped, they hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives – an experience so horrible it sends them running gratefully back to their beaus. So when Tank's best friend, Dustin, is dumped by his new girlfriend, Tank naturally offers to help out... and ends up meeting the challenge of a lifetime. Smart, beautiful and headstrong, Alexis is the first girl who knows how to call his bluff, and Tank soon finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dustin and his love for his best friend's girl.

I'll be back in two minutes then...

uuggghhh.... I HATE the sound of the vacuum cleaner. I really hate the the sound of the vacuum cleaner... did I mention I hate the sound of the vacuum cleaner?!

PJ took the vacuum cleaner out to get rid of the cobwebs in those corners of the ceiling on the landing of the staircase... the place that I certainly don't reach, not even with the vacuum cleaner.

"It'll take just two minutes" he says... "ok" I replied..."I'll be back in two minutes then."

I went for a walk around the block!

Good and Simple

It was such a busy work day... and PJ was the last appointment tonight for JF so we got to come home together. I'm still the driver for another week (most of you will know what that means). Thursday night is PJ's night to cook and because we came home together, he made scrambled eggs on toast for me. It's good, it's simple, it's yum and most of all it's easy...for PJ! With a nice glass of red, it's a great night for comfort food! Thanks honey!

No Insurance Available

I'm a little behind on my quilt making projects but hopefully KD received this for her birthday. She is the sweetest 6 year old granddaughter ever and I just want her to be warm! I mailed it in plenty of time for arrival for her birthday but I wasn't able to insure it as no insurance to Mexico is available. Fingers crossed it was received! I love you to the moon KD!

A Box in a Box in a Box

I picked this box up at the post office several days ago. It was addressed to me and PJ but I couldn't wait for him to come home, I had to open it up first! What a VERY special gift we received from M&M. It's SO beautiful. Thank you so much.
I'm going to have a cup of tea now...
