weekend update

This weekend were working around the house mainly but took a break on Saturday afternoon to see a show at the Citadel theatre in St Helens: The Elves and the Shoemaker. The boy was pretty sure he wouldn't enjoy it since he had seen and heard this story "a hundred times already". From the first song both kids were taken. The songs were bright and cheerful and the actors did a nice job. My only criticism would be the costumes... might have been less distracting to have some "period" clothing?

Sunday was mothers day in UK and the kids delighted in giving Megan their hand made cards and bringing breakfast in bed.

Top movies...

Lisa tagged me about 2 months ago to post my 5 top movies... this is probably more difficult than top music.

Having trouble putting them in order, but here are 5 mainstream movies and 5 dark movies, because I couldn't possibly recommend watching the dark films to normal people!

Forrest Gump (1994)
The Princess Bride (1987)
Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Dark / alternative:
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Natural Born Killers (1994)
Titus (1999)
Gattaca (1997)

And thats all I have to say about that...
