For Mothers' Day, Sas kindly bought me the DVD of An Education and as she's with her father all weekend (this is a once a month event so I won't see her until Sunday evening) she gave it to me yesterday and said to watch the it when I wanted. So last night, I did and it was excellent. Carey Mulligan is such a talented actress and was so good in the film, as was Peter Sarsgaard and Dominic Cooper. Rosamund Pike looked so beautiful and the clothes she wore in the film were fabulous. I'll definately watch this again.
Thanks for all the comments both here and at Shedblog regarding my shed. I looked at the photos again and can't believe how much more I now have in the shed. In fact, dare I say it, in those photos the shed looks positively bare inside. I've now replaced the white plastic chair in the photos with a gorgeous pink Lloyd Loom chair; my laptop has been replaced by a smaller, Samsung NC10; there's more driftwood (though I'm not sure how that's supposed to help any writing efforts); more pictures and notes on the walls; and definately more paperwork on that back table.
This weekend I'm determined to do the following:
- Finish & send off next assignment
- Continue with my WIP
- Finish reading Luxury by Jessica Ruston - I'll be reviewing this book for Novelicious
- Plant 30 Primroses that Rob bought me last week in the garden - the shed and conservatory can have a couple too.
I submitted a short story to a magazine yesterday, which was vastly improved thanks to my on-line writing group and their helpful comments. Thank you ladies.
So what plans do you have for this weekend?
