The Best Of Fun

27 Apr

Recently my BFF came to play stay for a couple of weeks. Our twice annual pyjama party complete with fabulous food, furry entertainment from #NotMyCat Mickey (aka Mickster, mooch, buggerboo, etc), lots of conversations and reminiscences, music, stitching and of course movies.

  • Barefoot in the Park
  • Kind Hearts and Coronets
  • Cromwell
  • Goodbye Christopher Robin
  • The Way
  • Walk In The Woods
  • The Road
  • The Battle of the Sexes
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  • Darkest Hour
  • Stonehearst Asylum 
  • In The Shadow of the Moon
  • Bohemian Rhapsody
  • To Catch a Thief
  • Summertime
  • The Fastest Indian in the World
  • Gravity
  • The Zookeepers Wife
  • Sybil
  • Blackboard Jungle
  • Mad Men season one, two, three, four and five

BFF had had a vertigo episode before she came to stay, and while resting in her bed she was able to focus on crocheting some cat blankets and brought 10 finished ones with her, along with a stash of double knitting yarn. She is such a quick stitcher that she could stitch a complete blanket every day. We paid a visit to the local wool shop to source a cotton blend to complete one of my blankets. Before long we had 23 blankets ready, and contacted the local cat protection branch for somebody to come and collect them. They posted a very nice thank you message on their Facebook page.

We ventured in to town to take care of a few errands, and often trotted to the local supermarket for nibbles and treats. On Easter Saturday we even went to the local beach and wondered the Esplanade before sitting on a bench and enjoying the sunshine. It was quite unexpected as often there is a cooling sea breeze but there was hardly any movement.

All too soon our fun has to come to an end, the suitcase is packed, and she is returning home. We re-set the counter for her return sometime in September.

    Now if I could just get well and back into the groove of things here at home. It will be time for a return visit before we know it. Enjoyed our fun time, and look forward to more fun in the Autumn. xx

        Yes indeed. Pity you can’t live nearer each other. A really good close friend like that is very special.

    Love the array of bright colours you’ve been working with. Ooh, those balls of knitting wool in-waiting have delightful potential.

    I looked down your list of films, I think I have seen two of them, certainly one, anyway.

    Your forays out sounded good. Was that the weekend of great weather?

      Indeed it was, it surprised us both. We expected an onshore breeze with a biting chilled edge but there was not one. Typical British views, a gent of a mature age heavily tanned skateboarding along bedecked in cut off denim shorts along with various peeps wrapped in coats and scarves, and all (un)dressed points between. One or two who were going to be rather sore the next day having caught more sun than they thought.

      I wish I could crochet as quick as I can plan, lol. I’ll get there slowly.
