Before I forget, the lovely Annie from Queensland has started her own blog, it is fab, very inspiring, check it out! http://redrosesandcrystal.blogspot.com/
I am attempting a new approach to bloggitisation*! Little and a bit more often. We'll see how long this lasts!
A couple of weeks ago at Blighty HQ we were all about dates.
First Grandma Whacker was en residence to celebrate her Birthday.
I dare not tell you how old she is now. 372. Remarkable.
Then it was our Wedding Anniversary, with the usual gloomy comments from Mr B about serving less time for murder.
|The card read: "Happy Wedding Anniversary Mrs B, can I have my passport back now?"|
And then very excitingly, Mr B took me on a surprise date. I did not know where he was taking me. I was All Agog and Stuff.
He drove me to Berkhamsted, to an old Art Deco cinema called The Rex.
I knew they were showing a French film "Potiche" - with old Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve.
I don't know quite how to break this to you all. Here goes.
Mr B had selected a film about motorbike racing on the Isle of Man.
I am NOT making this up.
It is the first time I have been speechless for years.
(Maybe that's why he did it).
Happy Wedding Anniversary Mr B. Hope you sleep well in the spare room...
*ok, I made that word up, I just enjoy winding up the spellcheck gismo. In the same way I enjoy deliberately going the wrong way in the car and listening to Tim the Sat Nag going bonkers - "Turn around when possible. Turn around when possible. I SAID TURN AROUND NOW, YOU HAVE RUINED EVERYTHING!!!!!" What can I say, I am a natural rebel and Tim is such an uptight little fusspot).
