So last week I managed to have a bumper 2-nights in a row dinner and movie experience with friends.
I had a lovely drive up to see my god daughter, who to be fair was much more captivated by Blaze and the Monster Machines...
...than finishing any of the 3 games we set up to play!
In the evening her mum and I went for our first Nando's of 2016 (it is becoming the default eatery for pre-movie dining...) followed by this:
Well, I have enjoyed the previous two Tarantino outings, but this took some real time to get to interesting story... It was definitely style over substance in places, and let's just say I was very glad that I closed my eyes in certain scenes where my friend Kelly sadly didn't! So yes, we walked out of the cinema rather bewildered and that's about it...
Saturday night it was an Indian meal out followed by a very different movie:
And thank heavens! Really good film and possibly my favourite of the now multiple "Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper together on one screen" outings I've seen. Are they the new power-duo ä la Helena Bonham-Carter and Johnny Depp? Anyway, I saw them most recently in Serena, which was one of those movies where I just wondered why they'd bothered to make it. No great shakes... So thankfully this restored my faith that there are movies out there with a story worth telling in an entertaining fashion - no style over substance here, it had both in ample supply.
Apart from that, work has been ticking over this week. I've been wanting to craft more on the evenings, the desire has been there, but I have been hit hard by the procrastination bug.... so hard. In fact this evening I really want to carve out some time to do a little crafting with my card kit before the next one arrives early in Feb!
But first I need to have something for my tea!
In the meantime, here's a pic of some happy mail that arrived today - the CHA products from MME just came in over at Hey Little Magpie, plus the 50% sale is happening right now, so lots to check out! :D
