It’s St David’s Day today – Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus! I am wearing a daffodil, had some leek and Caerphilly cheese crumble for my lunch and one of my nan’s lovely Welsh cakes with my cup of tea.
The Queen is in town to open the new Assembly building. Lots of people are very cross about the Queen and Cardiff and the Welsh Assembly and want to throw leeks at her.
I wish I was out walking, playing, taking pictures in the snow.
Just finished the Morality for Beautiful Girls – the third No1 Ladies Detective Agency book. I love the main character, Precious Ramotswe, a philosopher for modern women everywhere. Forget Bridget Jones – Mma Ramotswe thinks men are silly and need looking after, can’t understand why Western people rush about so much, and best of all, she loves a nice slice of cake. I want to live in a country where when someone says “You look very well, very fat” and it’s a complement.
Saw Walk the Line last week. Here’s my review:
Joaquin Phoenix – phwoar!
Also watched Proof. Here’s my review:
I like Gwynnie. Jake was a dreamy, doe-eyed, sensitive type (just like Mr M when I met him) and I love Anthony Hopkins when he has his proper Welsh lilt.
(I don’t think Jonathan Ross has got much to worry about, do you?)
Have been quite music-less of late, but about to order the new Belle and Sebastian album as well as a book from my wish list.
I got published in The Guardian – and got paid for it!
I’ve got together with a group a creative and marketing types to put a bid in for a three-year contract to produce an anti-smoking magazine.
I’ve got two wedding cake commissions.
Mr Meep and I have resurrected date tonight. This evening we’re going to see Cock and Bull Story, followed by a takeaway from fab veggie Indian place.
Made a lovely 1st Birthday Card for Amy, which I will scan in.
Took lots of photos in the forest on the weekend walk.
Er... that’s it.
I am still thinking about James’ posts about his brain tumour, which had me sitting here with tears streaming down my face. James is the boyfriend of my friend and colleague Phil, and they are both brave and strong and amazing. And James gives a lovely cwtch.
Found this lovely lady, who makes me want to sell up and move to Australia right now, to garden and paint and roam on beaches with my dog and Mr Meep.
And that was my week.
