Well hello! Firstly, I guess I should address my absence. There’s quite a simple explanation – I’ve simply had nothing to say. Which is most unusual for me!
I mean, I have had things to say and I could have written posts or added to my ongoing Lacunae tale, but my heart’s not been in it, whether that’s down to being busy, tired or just plain lazy. So apologies… *must do better* 😉
So what have I been up to since I last posted? Well, it’s only been a couple of weeks so I’ve not changed the world or anything, but I have visited South Korea. Kind of…
Last year, I made a note of every film we’d watched throughout the year and shared them in a post at the end of December. It seemed to be fairly well received and it also helped us review a year through a different medium.
So I decided to do it again. Except this time, due to the entire year being quite a gargantuan task, I intended to compile a post quarterly. And then we got to April…then the end of April…and I realised I’d missed my fraction window!
So instead, I’m hoping this is the first of a trilogy – because every good film comes in threes, right?! (Please don’t start giving me examples of when this hasn’t worked – there are far too many!)
Although this last month has been light on celluloid entertainment, we have still maintained an average of just over one a week, with 21 in total.
But what were they?
Hello everyone! I did say at the end of last year that I would continue with these compilation posts, so I thought it was well overdue that I’ve left it this long and we’re already half way through March!
Therefore, without further ado, the ninth edition is actually the first Web of Wonder of 2017, featuring an entire collection of YouTube gems that have tickled my fancy. As I’ve said before, there are some incredibly talented people out there!
I know I’m getting older, as we all are, but always considered my age bracket to fall into the ‘retro’ category, rather than ‘vintage’. That was until last week when we visited the Vintage Tea Shop, full to the brim of mismatched 1950s china tea sets, frilly aprons and vinyl records from days gone by.
Oh, and Pacman set up to play on a black and white portable TV, alongside a stack of these fellows for
children Haylee to play with…my drawing skills have not improved with age!
The Etch-A Sketch used to be a staple in my creative arsenal, despite generally only being able to achieve a dodgy house shape.
I’m sure most children these days would look at them with utter bemusement, wondering why these ‘old-fashioned tablets’ didn’t have sound, or colour…or access to YouTube! But as one of these was a huge part of my childhood, and with the Moodle Army theme this week being ‘Look Back’, I thought it was time for another edition of Nostalgia with a visit to my toy box.
(Hmmm, I realise this sounds like a euphemism, don’t get unnecessarily perturbed…)
As it’s almost that time of year again, (and I’ve had a surge in new followers recently – hello and welcome!) I thought I’d reshare my Valentine crush post from last year.
My tastes remain the same with an added edition this year of ‘Floki’ from Vikings (not sure how I missed him before). See the guyliner reference further along for an explanation – oh and I discovered he’s a Skarsgard (Gustaf to be precise), so naturally he has good genes!
Anyway, on with the drooling…
