I Said I Was Alive - And Here I Am Again

Hi

I don't want to avoid one of my New Year aims and skip my scribbles that you all have to put up with - so here goes.

I am loving the LJ friending meme that is going round, although I am not taking part as I think I need to just get back on track with my friends (*hugs*) and get more organised.  But it is good to see LJers fighting back - here is home, and here I stay.

As I siad life has been busy.

Over the last 2 weekends I have shampooed all of Mum & Dad's carpets ... including moving a lot of furniture ... Jiffy, of course, has supervised.  He found a few of his miss-laid toys, and even a chewy-stick ... which seemed to then "disappear"!!!

Then in the evenings I finished off my latest jigsaw -Collapse )


Last week I was busy at work, and still tired, but have decided to start decorating my kitchen anyway.  Any internal decorators would have a fit, as I am doing it in bits.  I decided to do about 3/4 - 1 hour a day ... that way to avoid the exhaustion.  It is slowly working.  I forgot to take the before pics, but this morning I painted the 2nd half of the ceiling, and touched up the first half's skirting boards.  As I am alone here it means I can live in the shambles for "as long as it takes"

Collapse )

See what I mean!! Still it will get done over the next 10 days, so by the time it is mid-February it will be "new", cleaned and re-organised ... so I can have M&D round for a meal to celebrate Mum's birthday.

Well I had better get on and answer some long-awaited replies to comments. Then off to the post office, before work this afternoon.

Hope you are all well - and safe.

James - Rock On!

Just Had To Share - Enjoy

I had a 60's CD on today while painting - and how ever many songs I know or hear - I ALWAYS have to sing along with the chorus of this one!!



Can't resist a second sing-song this morning!!

100 Meme - Film # 39

I said that I was going to get back on track so here I am with my 100 meme again..

True Lies is a great film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Art Malik and for the Buffy fans, a young Eliza Dushku.

Harry Tasker leads a double life. At work he is a government agent with a license to do just about anything, while at home he pretends to be a dull computer salesman. He is on the trail of stolen nuclear weapons that are in the hands of fanatic terrorists when something more important comes up. Harry finds his wife is seeing another man because she needs some adventure in her life. Harry decides to give it to her, juggling pursuit of terrorists on one hand and an adventure for his wife on the other while showing he can Tango all at once.



This is the trailer - I had also hoped to find a clip of all the horse-ride ... the most epic of scenes ... but here is part of it.
