Ooops I did it again.

You'd think by now I'd have learnt not to do this but do I ever listen to my own advice? No, evidently not!

What did I do? Well I read the book before I saw the film.....again.

The book was great, dark and scary in that good way that keeps you reading on.

The film.....well it was roughly the same story but of course it had the whole Hollywood treatment - an extra character, bits added, bits missing.

But all in all it was a fun film and because it was a preview it was in 3D which of course the smalls loved. That and the pop and the sweeties :)

I really need to get on top of myself, the kids have been off school for a very long weekend with the Bank Holiday. They finished school last Thursday afternoon and don't go back until Wednesday morning. All for one Bank Holiday!!!! Anyway no bedrooms have been tidied, no very very late packages have been put in the post blah blah and a big bleurgh too. I need the sun to come back out and recharge my very very depleted batteries.

I didn't realise there was a book, must look out for it.
The film looks pretty good, unfortunately we have to wait ages for films to come to our local cinema. It's only a small one but it's the oldest purpose built cinema in the world so I like to go there to keep it from closing down.
Have a good week hunni.

Hiya Taz, It is getting hard to find goodies isnt it? A few years ago you could find loads of things. And the prices (dont get me started!!!)

I have a book of the period drama The Blackheath Poisoning, it sounded really good on the summary, and then it came on TV in 3 parts so I decided to watch it before I read the book.....I wish I hadnt it was awful and Im sure the book will be better, but now I know who the murderer is!!!

Like you with your kids, Im looking forward to tomorrow as Mr K has been off work all week and I cant wait for him to go back so I can get on with the things I cant when he is around. I dont have children, just Mr K LOL!

P.S.We managed another trip to Ikea while he was off I spent £95 eek! but it could be ages before I can get there again so thats my excuse X

Hi sweetie

Nice to hear from you :)

My weekend was OK thanks, uneventful but alright. How about you?

I am keeping a low profile at the moment, I haven't sent off my PIF's or finished my freestyle swap *sob*
