Pudding and falling in love.
Heres some little puddings i made last night. I was meant to be making an owl tree decoration for Debbie in red and gold, but it didnt look right so made these for her instead. The photo is awful and not showing the little flecks of gold very well. The berries also sparkle a little, as do the leaves.
Ive been busy making other decorations and will show them when im further along. I need to buy ribbons and threads before they are finished.
Last night after waiting all week i snuggled up to watch Being Alan Bennett on tv.
This was such a treat and thoroughly enjoyed listening to the genius he is.
I've looked on bbci player if it's available, but sadly it's not.
Here is my favourite from talking heads. This is Waiting for the Telegram with Thora Hird, from Talking Heads. Thought i would share with you. Really gets to me, and the end without fail always makes me cry.
I reckon there will be more of his monologues available through the week on bbci player if you like the above one.
I find i prefer the book rather than watching.
Here is a link to my fave book The Lady in the Van. http://www.faber.co.uk/work/lady-in-van/9780571204717/
Here is a link with more info http://www.contemporarywriters.com/authors/?p=authC2D9C28A1d7801BDEDPnG34A0E32 and a full bibliography.
So onto falling in love. Thought i had found my favourite singer but last night i switched over and wtached the Ray Charles movie. Heres the link http://www.raymovie.com/index.php Once there click on enter site to hear some of the soundtracks.
I've always thought it not possible to love every song a singer produces, but since watching the film and listening to further tracks online, there is not one song i don't love and now i'm so in love with this man its beyond words. If you get the chance go to you tube and look him up. He's now a fave for my christmas stocking!
Once again blogspot refuses to allow me to leave comments. i have tried several times for the previous post and will do so once it works again.
