This week seems to have flown by in a flurry of getting things sorted after Christmas including our home and my work! The weather has not been good all week with grey skies and dampness and everyone I know has a cold or getting a cold. What we need is some very cold weather and sharp frosts to kill off all these bugs!!! Or snow, I don’t mind snow!!
DH has a busy weekend with compering a swimming event on Saturday evening for the clubs just in Derbyshire and then he is out all day on Sunday at one of the Clubs their Open. Which means that I am able to be in my sewing room, yeah!! I have DH and The Boys mats to finish and then a few more projects to plan, one of them being Treacle’s new quilt.
This is her quilt I made her in 2012 and she loves it but it is now starting to show its age and some of the squares have ripped in the middle so I have bought some new material for her to make a new one! I think I am also going to use a bit thicker wadding between the layers this time for her as the tiles can be quite hard and definitely cold in winter. I will place this old one in the bottom of her basket as an extra layer.
Talking films for a second, the final and much-anticipated instalment of Avengers: Infinity War will be out in April this year, which we now know is called “End Game” which was mentioned by the character “Dr Stephen Strange” in the previous film. There has been a lot of speculation on the web of how they are going to resolve the matter of half the Universe vanishing at the end of Infinity War with Thanos’ finger snap and here is my theory. The Hulk was conspicuously missing for a lot of the previous film and I think he will be the one to wield the spare Gauntlet that the Dwarves of Nidavellir had made and the remaining Avengers will, with the help of a few newer characters, collect the stones but The Hulk will be the one to wield it to bring about a return of the other half of the Universe!!!! We shall see in April if I am correct! (I have written this in Green for The Big Guy!)
Talking about films DH and I went to the cinema over the holidays, one of those days when it did not get light all day and it was cold and miserable. The Boys were both busy doing their own things so we decided to go to the Movies!! When we were first together we used to on Winter’s Saturday afternoons go to the local cinema for the first showing of the day which was half price and then when the first movie had finished go and see another one straight after! We told The Boys this and we used to do it when they were younger. Anyway we did this, this time.
As you know we are big Harry Potter fans and definitely like the new series of prequels, “Fantastic Beasts” and so went to see the new film “The Crimes of Grindlewald”. We were not disappointed; it does follow on from the last film and adds more characters in and builds on the Grindlewald character played by Johnny Depp. There was a bit of controversy about his casting but he suits the part completely.
The second film we went to see was “Mary Poppins Returns” with Emily Blunt as Mary who is very good. DH and I both love the original film and they tried very hard to replicate it in this film but some of the scenes seemed superfluous to needs, one being the Meryl Streep scene with her singing! Obviously being in Mama Mia has gone to her head and she now wants to sing at every turn! It was okay but the script was too like the original but with different songs and younger cast! Unless you really want to see it on the big screen wait until it comes out on DVD or any of the streaming platforms and save your money!
I hope you lovely lot have had a good first full week back after the holidays, I always think that once this week is under our belts it gets better!!! Tomorrow is Book Club day on the blog!
Have a Thrilling Thursday.
Hugs, Susie xx
