I am sorry I have been absent all weekend. It was one of those weekends when life just took over and I felt like my feet didn't touch the carpet in my house. On Friday, I went to see New Moon with my friend and I have to say it was absolutely fabulous. I actually thought it was better than Twilight. The film was a lot more action packed and the arrival of the pack of wolves really added a new dimension to the story. I think I may have moved my alliances from Team Edward to Team Jacob, as Edward looks so pasty and puny in comparison to Jacob.
My friend and I watched the film amongst a hoard of hormonal teenagers, not a wise move. Every time either Jacob or Edward took their shirts off, the audience went into a frenzy.
At the beginning they showed a preview of the new Sherlock film with Robert Downey Jnr and I have to say it looked out of this world. Being a lover, of Victorian Gothic, I just can't wait to go and see it.
After the film, my friend and I went to Nando's for some serious spices. I just love Nando's, I drown all my food in their extra hot sauce and then spend the next day wondering why my stomach hurts so bad. The food was extremely delicious; we had chicken wings, olives, corn on the cob followed by white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake. Yum!
Saturday was spent back in Essex, helping my husband's family empty my father in law's house. It was a very long day and very sad. It is awful to think that when we go all our possessions need to be redistributed so quickly. A very sad day.
We had really terrible storms through Saturday night, to the point where the rain was so heavy it woke the whole family up. I have never seen weather so bad in England, it was actually quite frightening.
Yesterday was a lovely day though, as my whole family went out for dinner for my mother's 70th birthday. We went for a Sunday roast at a local carvery and it was really lovely to spend time with my brother and his family, as well as my parents.
So, you see, I have been very busy and as you can imagine the reading has gone out of the window. I am even struggling to read in my normal evening slot, as I have become addicted to I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. I normally hate reality TV, but I just love watching these so called celebrities suffering.
I am really behind in my reviews, so I hope to catch up with them this week.
I hope you had a good weekend and I hope to get around to every one's blog throughout this week.
Thanks for stopping by.
