A weekend full of incident and culture including a concert at Sir John Deans. A violin and piano duo by a friend of ours neice who is studying at Manchester School of Music and winning lots of prizes. one can see why - her violin playing was quite amazing. Favourite pieces of Mozart, Franck and Carmen medley. The old school hall was packed.
Last night we saw "Slumdog Millionaire" which was excellent and lived up to the hype. I can see why its been picked for Bafta's and the Oscars now. makes me keen to see other Danny Boyle films that we've missed in the past like "Sunshine".
Popped into Northwich Glass to finalise our new windows. They are so helpful and friendly in there. It will be nice to seeout of our back room window again- at the moment it's like looking through a mist!
This morning was wet but luckily the bootslae at Antrobus was mostly inside though some brave souls froze outside on the cheaper pitches.
I got a few DVD's for 50p inscluding Pixar's "Cars" and Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride". Also one of our favourite films ever - Frank Oz's "The Little Shop Of Horrors". we had it on video but nice to get all the extras like "outtakes" and "making of" etc.
Hazel got some things for her blog including a pile of cotton reels and needles and other sewing stuff. Alos some hideous plates. She got Archie some old comics but he's not too keen these days. We shall keep them though. great to see Foxy in the Topper and Nutty comic which passed me by at the time.
