Found the Nuts!

On Sunday evening, after all day feeling like crap as I could not find the nuts for my dining table that was lying in pieces in the new home. David searched in the draw of my bedside table and ‘lo and behold!’ there were the two bags of nuts and bolts! I do not recall putting them there for safekeeping.

On Monday after coming home from a date night to Cheshire Oaks Vue to see a free preview screening of ‘The Internship,’ David and I put up the table and chairs. See slideshow below on the finished product! I am very happy with the table, I think it  goes really well with the colour scheme I had envisaged for the room. What do you think?

Ohhh! Now that’s what I call a weekend!

Phew! this weekend has been great! Well great to my standards, anyway! I don’t know what David thinks! 😮 There were no worries, or work on the ‘house’! 

Saturday, I dragged David to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall to hear a 65th birthday concert in honour of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber!


It was sublime! I loved it! Scott Davies singing ‘Music of the Night,’ was wonderful! In the concert programme, my eyes alighted on a billing for the Liverpool Philharmonic performing Mahler’s ‘10th Symphony‘. I am featuring that symphony in my ‘romance’ novel and I am wondering should I ‘drag’ David to that? The finale of the symphony usually renders me in tears, it is that heart-breaking! Should I go and hear it? What do you think I should do?

On Sunday David and I have planned to go to a preview screening of ‘Hitchcock’ at Cheshire Oaks. I ‘won’ free tickets via Vue cinemas. Again, I think I will ‘drag’ David there! I hope the film will be good??

UPDATE: I have booked for Mahler! I can’t wait!! Pass the tissues! 🙂

Happy New Year…!

… Let’s hope that 2013 is a much better year!

Here’s the completed video of David and Christine’s 2012! Hope you enjoy!

Slow Progress and Free Tickets to see TED!

After ending my last blog with some optimism I begin this with saying that David and I never completed the stud wall yesterday. 😦 We did cut the wooden beams for placement and David took off the old 1900 nogs but we never built the frame back up again much to my disappointment. 😦

On a happier point, the Haith’s bird food arrived a day after I ordered them. They arrived via FedEx and the Goldfinches are eagerly gobbling up the seed! 😀

We have had many Goldfinches visiting as well as two faithful Blue Tits, and up to three male House Sparrows. I am very happy that the House Sparrows have visited, adding to the bio diversity of the yard. My mum also said that the Dunnock was spotted hopping about the yard and helping himself to the dropped sunflower seeds yesterday. I do love Mr. Dunnock and I am very grateful that he has continued to visit and that he is getting some food, despite the hoard of Pigeons and colony of rats that are in competition for the feed!

I was amused when I got an email this morning from Vue Cinemas. I had entered a competition last week to win preview tickets to the new comedy ‘Ted‘. David and I both think it will probably be awful, but today I found out I got two free tickets to see it! lol 😀 I just sat laughing at the computer for a few minutes and my mum thought I was mad! The screening is tomorrow, so I am planning a romantic date with David, we are going for a pizza before hand and then going to see the film. I just hope it all goes according to plan!
