Where to start? The beginning of the week I suppose...
First I'm grateful to Twilight (again) as the DVD of "New Moon" eased the chore of dealing with the ironing mountain which is no more - until I next do the laundry! I did have to stop and sit down a couple of times - I cried at the same bit of the film as I did with the book. Speaking of which ..Robert Pattinson made me cry again on Wednesday. I thought the DVD of "Remember Me" would ease me through the afternoon - oh boy! Definitely a full box of tissues job. Crying is good for your eyes - mine must be fighting fit by now! The DVD is now on its' way to Carole - if anyone else would like to borrow it please let me know and Carole can post it on to you instead of back to me.
Best thankfulness of the week is reserved for DS and his girlfriend who arrived on Tuesday evening to spend a few days with us. They're now on their way back to Bristol to pay the deposit on and pick up the keys for the house 10 of them will be sharing for the next year. DS made my lunch today - thank you for a wonderful toasted ham,cheese and tomato sandwich!
Thanks to OH for taking us all out to Prezzo last night for a yummy Italian meal - good food and good company - perfect.
I'd also like to thank Gordon Ramsey for his baked cheesecake recipe (it appeared in the Sunday Times magazine several years ago) - it is always delicious esp. when served with a mixture of summer berries and it went down well on Tues. evening.
I'm also grateful to Facebook as a fun way of keeping in touch with people and a place for interesting adverts for "must have" items such as sparkly Team Edward T-shirts and mugs with the words - "I'm having trouble dealing with the fact that Edward Cullen is a fictional character" - priceless!
And finally I am grateful to Krister Henriksson and the team that made "Wallander" - I've been recording series 2 on BBC 4 and watching them whilst having lunch. I really hope there will be a third series, if only to improve my speaking of Swedish...at the moment it's limited to "Tak" which means thank you (and I learnt that in Denmark over 30 years ago)lol! I can pronounce Malmo with a Swedish accent too.
I have lots of things to be grateful for this week but am feeling a bit flat today for obvious reasons.
Hope your weeks have been as good.
p.s. mustn't forget Sue-bubbles for making me buy yet more stash from QVC! She recommended a kit in the last click section and two others "fell" into my basket as well. Naughty me!
