I thought I was going to have to live 'til a hundred before I ever received a telegram, but No!
Look what was waiting for me in the mailbox this morning. How cool is that?... I was planning to send my new penpal a letter in return but now I'm going to have to find a carrier Kiwi bird that can manage the round trip to the U.S. (before you tut tut at my lack of ornithological knowledge, I realise Kiwi's can't fly... I plan to buy it a canoe!)
Happy house move Heather!
So, what else have I been doing recently...
My cinema chum and I have enjoyed a couple of excellent English movies, Four Lions and Made in Dagenham.
I've linked above to the relevant websites in case you're interested, I recommend them both, wholeheartedly.
We actually saw the films in two different cinemas... Four Lions was in one of those old school theatres where the seats are a little lumpy but you don't have to sneak your wine in a drink bottle; Made in Dagenham was a multi plex monster affair, run by twelve year olds with a delicious array of pik n mix lollies and ice cream. Both enjoyable in their own way, although this time I really enjoyed the multi plex because we went during the afternoon and walking out of a cinema into bright, shiny sunshine always makes me feel I've cheated time somehow.
I'm drowning in sweetpeas... which as a way to go would actually be quite nice I think... preferable to a shark attack anyway.
I'm eating rather a lot of asparagus with hollandaise, salt and pepper and I'm baking bread... from scratch... without a breadmaker... this is a big deal... believe me! The recipe is one from Nigella and involves no kneading, yum, gobble, yum,yum, chew!
What have you been up to?
