Going round in circles

Oh My! yesterday was just such an unexpected social day. I spent the whole day chatting, I had an invite for lunch from a friend and before we knew it it was school run time, both our little boys had the best time playing together and they made some great ladybird cakes...flour everywhere!!! My friend has just stopped being a Bodyshop consultant and was getting rid of her stock...FAB FOR ME!!! I got a HUGE bag full of goodies. VERY HAPPY! Then I spent the early evening on the phone with various people phoning to see if our Friend had had her baby yet. It was good to catch up with old friends. Sadly my boys did not get much Mummy time because of this, but they got their Dino Track out and ran it through the house so they actually had a good time. In the evening I curled up on the sofa and watched Pans Labyrinth. I had my cup cake knitting at the ready(see above picture as proof of my not so good effort) SHOCK...the film was in subs, I had no idea, so it was knitting down, glasses on. It was a great film, two excellent story lines running through it, a little scary and in parts down right horrific but equally beautiful. It is as good as all the reviews say, I would say it would take someone with a good imagination to REALLY enjoy it, you do have to allow yourself to get sucked into the film or it just would not have any effect on you.
So with all this activity not a single stitch got knitted, not a single photograph was taken...No wait I did make a few patchwork stitches whilst at breakfast with the boys...That was it, I can not believe I did not take a single picture...
The latest Month of Moo picture is one of my favourites, I got the Moo on a holiday in Yorkshire with my boys a few years ago and its on the nursery bedroom door, its a very child like Moo and of course its wood and I have a real passion for this wonderful natural material.

Pan's Labyrinth is one of my favorites. I ussually don't like subtitles, because I find them distracting, but I didn't have that problem with this film. The part were the nanny lady attacks the step dad... EWW! I mean, I was waiting for someone to kick his butt, but it was so well done it grossed me out!
