Into Darkness…

With a visit to the cinema long overdue, today I decided to go with my mum to Liverpool One’s Odeon to see the new Star Trek film and I loved it! It had enough plot to keep you interested and action scenes to make you gasp! I just loved the camaraderie between the actors who are all cast perfectly. My favourite is Zachary Quinto who plays Spock and Benedict Cumberbatch was very scary as the ‘bad guy!’

The last time we went to the cinema was when we went to see Les Miserables and outside we found ‘The Big Egg Hunt,’ with lots of lovely eggs painted by UK artists. This time there was a display of four sculptures of African Elephants for the Knowsley Safari Park campaign ‘if they’re gone!’ So out came my camera and I took a snap!

Do You Hear the People Sing?

Wednesday, I had the whole afternoon off work. So with the late winter sun shining upon us, mum and I went to the Odeon cinema at Liverpool One to see Les Miserables. I couldn’t help but sing along to the great tunes! We even got in for 2 for 1, so was a cheap day out!

Afterwards we stopped off at the Lindt Easter Egg Hunt, 101 painted eggs in an art instillation  You all know I love street art and I happily dragged mum around the display and snapped at a few of my favourites!

Charmed!

Today, Sunday my back yard was awash with the golden flash of wings from 18 Goldfinches! 18! There were all squabbling over the three sunflower feeders I have and flew in from a neighbouring tree opposite. They were funny to watch, swooping down upon the seeds, but what a racket they made!

Yesterday, David went walking in Cumbria with his work colleagues so I stayed at home, in the warm, away from the cold rain and wind. I enjoyed a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio and a Shahi from our regular curry house Saffron! It went down a treat. 😀

With work at the university starting again, my days are busy going back and forth too lectures. I have two students who are studying Law and a student I am mentoring who is studying American History.

Two weeks ago, Mum and I went to the Odeon cinema in Liverpool One to see The Hobbit!

I did not have much hope that I would enjoy it as much as Lord of the Rings as I was unable to get through reading the first chapter of the book! However, from the opening scenes to the end, I was hooked! I loved the film! The cinematography, the acting (even the Dwarves) and the score were all wonderful! It was great to revisit Hobbiton. I love Bag End! I so could see myself living there! 😀 I can’t wait for the second film in the trilogy now! 🙂
