And good morning to you all! The sun is sunny but not too hot, all my windows are wide open, I've had a productive morning cleaning to the sound of Classic fm on the radio and I am going to spend the rest of it scrapping and baking. Bliss! Two long shiny weeks of freedom are ahead and I intend to make the most of them.
The parents are coming today (hence the cleaning) which means two things: first of all, Mum and I will make our annual pilgrimage to the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show this weekend at Ally Pally (Dad will have to look after himself) and secondly we can share our big reveal.
This is the first Mother-Daughter challenge we did: the brief was Blue, Birds and Buttons. Some of each had to be on the page.
The page is about me having a film and pizza night to watch Inception. A film recommended to me by my form in no uncertain terms. It was more disbelief that I hadn't seen it than anything and resulted in a bit of a falling out when I said the bit where they all ski around in the snow wasn't my favourite. They thought it was an action film and I thought it was a film about guilt and human relationships. Oh well :D
At the time, they wanted to do their class assembly on Conspiracy Theories. They don't any more (fickle!), but while they did, Inception was all they talked about and so I promised to do film and pizza night at the weekend and see it for myself. Thanks LoveFilm! A quick email round the usual crowd found that Ruth was free to help me out in my time of filmy need and this page was born!
P.S. Feel I should point out that as I shared this story with other classes, they all approved of the plan but advised that I eat the pizza before watching the film as "It's bare deep miss" and they were worried I would be confused.
P.P.S. What does any of this have to do with Blue, Buttons and Birds? Nothing. But I didn't have a story to tell about those and I wanted to scrap this story :D
P.S. Anyone else off to Ally Pally?
