The catching up game

I seem to be stuck in a pattern of blogging furiously on a Sunday to catch up with the previous week. My legendary stubborness means that I don't want to give up on my "blog each day and post a snapshot each day" challenge - but at the moment, I don't feel as though I am really writing anything worth reading... however, I will keep on, and hope that my writing spirit returns soon.

There's lots going on at work, but I don't feel as though I can write about it. Let's just say that there are changes and decisions made which I don't agree with. On the other hand, it's the summer holidays, lots of people are away and there is a slightly more relaxed feeling about work. I hope things will get better. And in my personal life, I am waiting each month for something to happen, or not happen. And it hasn't yet... I seem to be playing a waiting game and patience was never my strong point.

We have a few long weekends planned, but have no time to take a joint holiday together this year :-( We'll take some time off over Christmas and hope to do a proper holiday next year.

Anyway, as for today, we went to Imagine for brunch, which started the day off well for me :-)

Orange Cinema at the lake

Tonight my friend J and I went to the Orange cinema - the outdoor cinema runs for a month, showing films when the sun goes down - this means it's pretty late - 09.30 til 11.30 ish. Tickets sell out online immediately - and I am grateful that J is more organised than me and always manages to get tickets for a choice of films :-) We also went last year.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous today - hot and sunny event at 18.30. We got there early - ate, drank and gossiped.

And then watched the orange screen rise over the lake as the light dimmed. The film was almost an afterthought!

We say "Happy Go Lucky" by Mike Leigh - a film about a single woman living and working as a teacher in London. The film ambles along, there is no real clear narrative, but it was delightful anyway. I really liked the portrayal of long term female relationships - how we live and work together and understand one another. Fantastic.

Happy Go Lucky
