The second incarnation of my blog
Watching… just one film Sunshine on Leith. I am not a great fan of musicals and this one was based on the songs of The Proclaimers about 2 soldiers coming home to Edinburgh from Afghanistan. I have to say that, if the songs were taken out, it would be a good film. For me, the songs added absolutely nothing and just made the characters look stupid. With songs, it’s 5/10, without songs it would have been 7/10.
Entertained… fully at Charlie and the chocolate factory. This was yet another part of a friends surprise birthday presents with Pete and I turning up yet again. The show was great and the audience of many kids helped with the atmosphere. The stage sets were stunning and we had a great old time and craved chocolate afterwards!
Visiting… a town in the very north of Buckinghamshire called Olney. We went on bank holiday Monday and had a very pleasant walk around this odd (in a good way) town. Around 7 miles east of Milton Keynes, this place has history seeping from every old building and open space. It also has a great number of shops selling mainly ladies expensive clothes and “stuff” for homes. We had a walk along the river with Zac and coffee and cake.
Running… in a 10k at Silverstone and my 33rd Parkrun in St Albans. The latter was awful, with low energy levels and annoying puddles!
