I can hardly believe that it's a whole month since the beginning of the year! We thought we were going to take things at a more leisurely pace to start the year but that hasn't happened, although we have had time to visit the cinema more often! (more later)
I bet Julia at the Stamping Ground can't believe that this is the 400th WOYWW since she started this fabulous link up!
My desk is in need of some care but, believe me, the rest of the craft room is getting better!
The only thing that wasn't there before I took this photo is the tag which the other week hadn't been touched since I sorted some bits and pieces out for it…it is still waiting for some ribbon or thread to finish it though!
The paper covering my desk has some testing of a newly carved stamp - I am quite pleased with it although it took a bit of tweaking!
The Carabelle Studios star stamp needs putting away and my little scrap box is overflowing(no surprise there!)
I think I have space for a couple of film reviews!
"Lion" which we saw last week was just what it promised to be - an uplifting true story of a boy separated from his mother when he was young and re-united after being adopted in Australia, miles away from his home in India! The time passed so quickly and showed some great scenery too!
Yesterday was hubby's choice - "Hacksaw Ridge" - I must confess I knew nothing about the film and judged it from the poster - I wasn't looking forward to it at all! How wrong could I be? Yes, there is a lot of blowing ups and gore but the story is an amazing true story. Although I did feel slightly wrung out towards the end of the film the final scenes lifted me up again!
We went into Manchester instead of our usual cinema and we both saw the film for the grand total of £4.50, (quite a saving from our usual) Of course we used Two For One code from Compare the Market.
We then went for a free lunch(strictly an Afternoon Tea) by using a voucher I had from M and S! As we had gone by the Metro with our free passes it was a great outing for the price!!!
I am on my way to visit!
Thanks for looking, Chris
