I don't know what it is, but it seems like most people have a lot going on that's stopping them from making it to their blogs lately. Either that, or - like me - they just couldn't be bothered to put the PC on and write a blog.
Actually, I think the main reason for my lack of interest in blogging over the past few days is that I've done sod all worth blogging about over the past few days. And, what's the point of doing a blog when you've got nothing to write about?
About the most interesting thing that happened was the doctor called (well, it was the doctor's receptionist really, but still) to ask me to make an appointment to come in for more blood tests. Got to go in for them on Thursday 7th February 2008 at 10:20 am. Only thing is, I was so busy trying to find a time and day that worked for everyone involved I forgot to ask why the doctor wants them done. Oops! I guess I'll ask when I go for them. It's probably just to keep an eye on my iron level anyway.
Also, Mam dropped by on her way to town with her friend Kelly to ask if I wanted anything from town. I said I wouldn't mind a baguette... Apparently she was meaning she wanted to know if I "needed" anything. *Shrugs* Well, she said "want" not "need" so how was I to know which she meant? LOL! Anyway, there wasn't anything we needed, so she did end up getting my baguette (and a chicken sandwich for my hubby). And, very nice it was too! I guess she decided since she was going in for driving practice anyway, she might as well grab my baguette. LOL!
Spent most of the weekend watching some of my ever growing "need to watch" DVD pile.
First I watched series 9 and 10 of Friends, which I got a few weeks ago with the rest of my birthday money. So, that's that all spent now.
I was going to watch series 6 of Buffy too, but I was watching the DVDs in the bedroom, and the DVD player in there is REALLY picky, and decided that after two episodes of Buffy I had seen all it was going to let me see. LOL!
So, instead I watched "Double, Double, Toil And Trouble" which is a movie starring the Olsen twins (Mary-Kate and Ashley). The movie is about how 7-year-old twins, Kelly and Lynn (played by the Olsen twins) find out that their Aunt Agatha has trapped her own twin sister (Sophia) in a mirror, and the girls have until midnight on Halloween to free her, or the spell becomes permanent. I think it's a really good movie. But then, I'm a big fan of the Olsen twins (especially the stuff they did as kids).
I also watched "The Wild" which was about a lion named "Ryan" who lives in a zoo in New York, and who is trying to find his roar and thinks if he goes in to the wild he'll then learn how to roar like his Dad (Sampson). So Ryan goes off and Sampson has to try and rescue him and bring him back to the zoo (with a little help from some other animals from the zoo). It was a pretty good movie. Quite funny in places too!
At some point over the past few days, I also finished listening to "Cider With Rosie" by Laurie Lee. I've read it before (for one thing, parts of it were used as materials during my English GCSE) but it was only this past Christmas I actually got myself a copy on audio book (well, actually, someone brought it for me... I think it was my Mam). Anyway, it's Laurie Lee's autobiography, and it's really good. At least, I think so.
