oh my god

I just added the tripods to my wish list 🙂 blast from the past or what Takes me back to english classes when we had to write a book review of the books we had read over the summer – I had stayed with my cousins in Connecticut and Kenneth ah introduced me to john christopher – I bought all 3 and read and re-read them all that year.

I was 14 [allegedly it is classed as Juvenile Fiction/Science Fiction, Fantasy, & Magic] when this series was first shown and I was amazed how well they had taken the books and brought them to life. I was astounded that they stopped filming after the second series and always wondered if they would re-run it – I never saw it if they did. A definite case of you should read the books first but if you haven’t got time then maybe you should just watch the series 🙂 I know I will be when the first pay check comes in 2002!

Merry Christmas Everyone

hope everyone has had [or is still having for those of you in the US] a fabulous and merry christmas. It truly has been a family christmas for me for the first time in a few years. My brother, sister-in-law, neice, nana, grandad, mum, dad, and numerous aunts and uncles are all staying at my parents for a hectic but fun christmas dinner. a joint effort thankfully or my mum would have collapsed with the effort I think.

so whereever you are and whatever you are doing have a great time.

It snowed today

whilst I was christmas shopping in covent garden – wandered into neals yard and it started to snow – made me feel all christmassy – or whatever 🙂

also went to the national film theatre to see the wizard of oz today – kate and paul were very suprised that this was the first time I have ever seen it. Well it was and I tell you had I seen it as a child I would have had nightmares abot the munchkins I tell you – scary was not the word.

then off to david and andrews for a christmas party in sydenham which was lovely met lots of pauls friends [well he claims not to have known most of them] which was nice and I’m feeling happy and lovely.

gotta take his pressie back to the BT shop though so he can have a dect phone with an answer machine – I mean not content with patrick cox shoes

anyways feeling really festive now with my tree and the snow so I added some snow to the site too [only on IE and AOL I’m afraid not NS] so off to walk jack and then to bed to dream of nice things.

tomorrow is jacs party with mulled wine and minced pies and then monday – thursday at my folks in liverpool so less blogging than usual. so in case I don;t log on before then – if you celebrate it – MERRY CHRISTMAS – and if you don’t – have a good few days!
