Here Comes the Sun!

Posted on

Although I was wishing that I didn’t have to go to work this morning, there remained a certain spring in my step as I glanced out of the window while getting ready. That Monday morning feeling after a fab weekend was just made better by the sunshine. As I walked to work I noticed how beautiful the blossom on the trees looked against the bright blue sky. It was also nice to walk home from work in the daylight… it seemed forever ago that I could do that. So I just wanted to say welcome back sun 🙂

So I had a pretty awesome weekend. It began with a spot of holiday shopping which is no where complete as yet but I’m glad I made a start. A spur of the moment trip to the cinema on Saturday evening with my 13 year old niece presented us with ‘The Hunger Games’ which pleasantly surprised me as I wasn’t really expecting much from this film. I haven’t read the book but people who have tell me that its so much better than the film. I don’t doubt this for a second but as it takes me so long to get through a book I have no intention in reading it. Some people were disappointed because the film was aimed at pre-teens which I expected anyway as my niece has been going on about it for months. I couldn’t help thinking that the whole concept of the film was just a little bit brutal for young people to digest but I was happy that it wasn’t too graphic as I didn’t fancy explaining to my sister why her daughter was having nightmares. All in all I liked the weirdness of it but I wouldn’t say that it’s better than ‘Harry Potter’ as some media have been saying.

I had a lazy Sunday morning catching up with ‘Britain’s got Talent’ leaving myself just half an hour to get dressed and slap on some make-up before running out of the door to catch a train to Camden town where I met my mate Mandy for food, drinks at ‘The Worlds End’ and onto Koko to see Lostprophets perform. It wasn’t a proper gig, they were filming for an album chart show and people who had bought tickets to see them in May had been invited along for free to be part of it. To be honest I wasn’t expecting them to sing as many songs as they did… about eight from what I recall! One being their new single ‘Bring ‘Em Down’ and one of my favourites ‘Rooftops’. Roll on May when I get to see their full show 🙂

Get Well Soon Amanda!

I felt a little saddened when I saw the front page of today’s newspaper. It read “Amanda and new baby almost died”. I immediately thought back to the time I met her last year just before she left Shrek. She came out of the Stage door after a fantastic performance looking radiant in a flowing orange dress sporting her then small bump. With her daughter Lexi by her side she spoke to fans and posed for photographs. I remember thinking that there was a certain warmth about her, she came across as every bit of the doting mum as she let Lexi sign her name on people’s programmes, careful not to leave her out. She spent a fair bit of time chatting to a long line of fans while her driver was starting to look impatient to say the least. This just goes to show what a lovely person she is.

Amanda – a judge on Britain’s got Talent, gave birth to a baby girl named Hollie Rose and weighing 6lb. Amanda lost a lot of blood after the birth and had to under-go blood transfusions. She spent 3 days in intensive care. Baby Hollie also had breathing difficulties and was put on a respirator but both are now out of danger. I want to wish Amanda a speedy recovery and I hope she and baby Hollie make it home safe and sound to be together as a family really soon.
