Rocky Horror Show

Well, last night was the night. We went to see Rocky Horror Show at Wimbledon Theatre. Our seats were excellent, 5 rows from the front right in the middle. It was brilliant. Haven't been to see it since before I had the kids and Tim's 15 now! We hired an Eddie costume for David and he looked great. I went as Magenta. Felt like a tart, until we got there and saw loads more people of all shapes, sizes and genders dressed in less! Had a fantastic time.

One stupid cow behind me spoilt it a bit (she was obviously a virgin as she wasn't dressed up!) I took 2 photos as everyone around me was taking pictures and she tapped me on the shoulder and told me I wasn't supposed to. Well yeah, I know that, but everyone else was and I wasn't annoying anyone else or using flash, so what was the problem. Silly bitch.

But we all joined in shouting responses and singing. The best bit was all standing up and doing the Time Warp. Fab, hilarious. Can't wait to go again, in less than 16 years this time. Hope you like the pic. I have a few more to add but am having problems uploading at the moment.....

RIP Patrick Swayze

I was very sad to hear Patrick Swayze had lost his battle with cancer. I just loved him in Dirty Dancing & Ghost. Sad day for his family, the acting community and movie-goers everywhere. RIP xx

I'm back now from my Nan's funeral. It was a lovely service but a sad one. Dad did a reading and made me cry, his sister wrote a reading which the vicar read out and also made me cry. Another chapter closed. RIP Nan xx

Wedding scrapbook

Finally, I've made a start on the scrapbook for David's sister's wedding. (They got married in June LOL!) I've done 4 pages so far which I'm really proud of. I used a 12x12 Moments Scrapbook with cream mulberry paper cover. Last year I was fortunate to receive a fab wedding scrapbook kit from a magazine (forgot which one!) It's Hot off the Press Finished in a Flash Wedding Kit, complete with ribbons, sentiments, and lots of lovely brads. Hope you like it.

I'm so excited

It's astounding time is fleeting
madness takes its toll
but listen closely not for very much longer
I've got to keep control
I remember doing the Timewarp
drinking those moments when
the blackness would hit me
and the void would be calling
Let's do the Timewarp again!

It's just a jump to the left
and then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane
Let's do the Time Warp again!

It's so dreamy, oh fantasy free me
So you can't see me, no not at all
In another dimension
with voyeuristic intention
Well-secluded I see all
With a bit of a mind flip
You're there in the time slip
And nothing can ever be the same
You're spaced out on sensation
like you're under sedation
Let's do the Time Warp again!

Well I was walking down the street just a-having a think
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
He shook me up he took me by surprise
He had a pickup truck and the devil's eyes
He stared at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again
Let's do the Time Warp again!

I'm so excited. I'm going to see the Rocky Horror Show on 19th Sept and can't wait. I'm dressing as Magenta and David's going as Riff Raff. Will post pics to prove it.

Did you know...

...that Cancer Research shops will accept old and well worn clothing, old linen and curtains if you mark the bag as "rags". This generates significant income for the charity and these items don't end up in landfill. So they help research into new treatments for cancer and save the environment as well. Excellent.

Craft against cancer update

The lovely Michele has done really well so far in her craft against cancer and raised £378. She wants to raise as much as possible for the Royal Marsden Hospital by the end of September so why not pop over to her blog and see how you can help. It's a charity very close to my heart and I think she's done so well. She's also a very clever crafter....

Sad news

Had some sad news this morning. Dad rang me at 7am to say sadly my nan passed away last night aged 84. Poor lady had been in hospital for a while and was in a lot of pain, was mentally confused and not very well at all. In a way, it's a relief for her as she's free of pain now and back with grandad. Poor dad is upset, he went to see her in hospital yesterday and she didn't recognise him. He did what he could, so did his sister. RIP nan, we love you xxx

Peace at last....

I would say it's nice to have the house to myself again after the summer holidays but it actually feels too quiet... Tim went back to school on Thursday and promptly twisted his ankle. Didn't seem too bad and he did go to school on Friday. Emily started in Year 1 today. Seemed a little subdued in the playground but was ok. Some of the mums were getting really upset. But I couldn't cry... not because I'm hard but because I've done it once before so I'm used to it. Plus neither of my kids are the clingy crying type, both were ready for school and enjoyed it. I'm glad about that.

Anyway, once I'm back to "normal" LOL with housework etc I'm going to do some crafting. Not really interested in cards much now but want to do scrapbooking. Have a wedding, an anniversary one and our holiday one to do. Any ideas??
