Where does time go?!
From the minute we were catapulted into a deadline day-after-two-bank-holidays on Tuesday, last week seemed to last about two hours… mental.
It included some very random weather on Wednesday. Having left work in bright sunshine and driven through rain on the way home, it was dry as I got near the yard then, a mile out, I saw what looked like snowdrifts on the road… it was hail.
It had seriously drifted to up to four inches thick, I’ve never seen anything like it. But as I’ve been a complete eejit and left the memory card of my camera in my work computer, I’ve only got the ones I took on my phone the next morning:
Random but beautiful…
Gone now though, thank the good lord
Something else I need to talk about is this:
I was lucky enough to be sent some Twinings green tea bags to try and although they didn’t tell me to say so (!) it’s definitely the best green tea I’ve ever had. Smooth and with a lovely flavour, with none of that almost-bitterness you sometimes get with green tea. Twinings will no doubt be pleased to hear they’ve got two new customers; not only me but my mum’s bought some on my recommendation too
And talking of my mum, I went with her to see the Hunger Games the other day. If you haven’t seen it/read the books and don’t want to know, skip this bit
We both thought it was brilliant. I’ve never seen a film version of a book that’s been any good at all before – the huge liberties taken with storylines usually really wind me up *cough* Peter Jackson, Lord of the Rings *cough* – but this one was something else. The way the Gamemakers worked for example, I’d never even thought about but that control room, with Seneca Crane saying things like “get me a tree there” and the way it was so clearly a game to them, really added something to the story. And although they did add bits, like Snow and Crane’s conversations and the rebellion in 11, it was all to explain the story and I liked the way Crane had to fall on his own sword with the berries… all in all, definitely a winner.
But now, of course, another weekend has gone and it’s almost Monday again… how did that happen?!
