So I am starting with a film – on Thursday night I went to our local cinema with 3 friends to see PS I Love You (one of whom should have been at choir practice, but her reply to my invite was, and I quote: “Stuff choir”!)
Our first observation was goodness, look how many people are out on a Thursday night! We don’t get out much after 8pm on a week night because going out late to the 24hr Tesco’s to do a “big shop” does NOT count as a night out.
We loved the film – I know, chick-flick, no depth……perfect! Some great music, a romantic, although sad, story with plenty of laughs for 4 thirty/forty something girls.
It did show the rural beauty of Ireland off very well, but there were a few woeful Irish accents from the 2 leading men. I loved the book by Cecelia Aherne the film was based on, and enjoyed the film too, despite the plot differences. In the book the whole story is set in Ireland, but perhaps Dublin was not glamorous enough, but imagine how much worse if all the accents had been so terrible.
One of the saddest moments of the evening was not, perhaps, the obvious sad part of the plot, but when one of our party identified some Nicolas Mosse pottery on the dresser in the background of a romantic moment! How sad are we? If you are not yet acquainted with the delights of Nicholas Mosse pottery, you can go HERE, but remember to come back please!
Finally, about 10 minutes from the end, when I would estimate that 90% of the audience, who were 90% female were all sobbing, sniffing, wiping tears and blowing noses a voice behind us could be heard to say:
I can’t believe some people are ACTUALLY crying
and then repeated it for effect, with different emphasis, and more incredulity
I CAN’T believe some people are actually CRYING.
Of course it was a man, with a heart of stone.
After the film ended, many who had not had the foresight to wear water-proof makeup, were to be found in the Ladies repairing the damage.
So it was a great night out, isn’t it odd how a good cry can make you feel all happy inside!
If you have seen the film, please let me know – did you cry? did you spot any desirable pottery items in the background? did you overhear any comments?
So on to the George section of this post. George is FREE – free of his collar, free to go outside, free of his litter tray ……well almost free. We are keeping him in at nights for a few more weeks, to try to keep him out of mischief and away from the vets for a wee while.
Here is George with his first taste of freedom
I have not shared any digital creations in so long, so here is a birthday card I made for a 40th birthday party I am going to tonight.
I made it using a new kit coming soon to PrimaHybrid.com by Gina Marie Huff at Weeds and Wildflowers. I will let you know when it is released – and you’ll be glad I did, trust me!
