  • Procrastination (I hear you all yell) ... this is why this is only get done as and when I get organised!

  • Lack of organisation ... untidiness.

  • Quick temper ... although I am really trying to slow it down.

  • Hating any compliments at all.

So, that's a start ... maybe you will add others!

100 Meme - Film # 51

Wow it seems a long time since I posted on this list of memes ... so will try to get on and do some.

This set of 10 is going to be some favourite musicals.  I have already listed a couple under other sections, but will carry on here, with my first one being one of only 2 films that I saw at the cinema with Mum & Dad (the other being Gone With The Wind).

This is the "classic"  Sound of Music

As we all know, it's based on a true story ... but for any who have forgotten the plot ... In 1930's Austria, a young woman named Maria is failing miserably in her attempts to become a nun. When the Navy captain Georg Von Trapp writes to the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job. The Captain's wife is dead, and he is often away, and runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives -- including the Captain's. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love, even though Georg is already engaged to a Baroness and Maria is still a postulant. The romance makes them both start questioning the decisions they have made. Their personal conflicts soon become overshadowed, however, by world events. Austria is about to come under the control of Germany, and the Captain may soon find himself drafted into the German navy and forced to fight against his own country.



And, the nice thing is that they have stayed friends with each other -

Catching Up

As I have just said in my 31 day meme, procrastination is a fault of mine.

Wow - seems days since I was last here, so now this is my 3rd update within the hour!!

I have made an entry for both memes I am doing - so well done me!

I have signed up for seasonal_spuffy ... and it's back on LJ, so I am happy.  I will admit I never got organised over the last couple of sessions as it was on DW ... so now I have to just get some ideas as to what to do.  It will definitely be some icons, but I would love to get a fic done.  I have 2 fics I am working on ... and must get back to them.  See, I told you that procrastination-is-me!

The orchestra concert went well - so was pleased with that.  Whether I will still be needed again in March, I don't know.  For my sake, I hope so ... but for the orchestra's sake I hope they find another clarinettist.

I had this afternoon off, so have done a bit of cleaning, as my best friend (& hubby) are popping in later.  Toni wants some (osteopathic) treatment ... and a chat, so I am also cooking them a meal.  I saw them on Saturday and we have promised each other we will meet up more often.  It's amazing how quick the weeks go, yet we miss seeing each other.

Hope that you are all keeping well ... will try and keep in touch better ... I promise.
