Truly Knackered

This week was my first week back at work and I gotta say, by Friday, I was bloody pooped. I don’t work 9-5, but what I do do, I actually work really hard at but normally, I’m great. But this week, it just so took it out of me, I couldn’t believe it. I went to bed last night and I just hit the pillow straight away! Maybe it was first week back feeling and maybe, I think, it was more hitting my head against a brick wall feeling (not literally I might add!).

Anyway, I am going to be enjoying my weekend off by doing everything I love to do, which mostly involves watching lots of telly lol! Revenge was back on Monday and if you remember how last year I ended up so behind, this year, it’s not a problem, because I’m actually watching it live, rather than recorded. I really enjoyed Monday’s opening episode, even if at some points I felt like I was missing out on something. I don’t know if everyone felt like that, it just seemed at times they were talking about stuff as if I should know it but I didn’t, unless it’s just my memory failing me, I don’t know. Then on Wednesday I watched the new series “The Tomorrow People”, which I enjoyed so much more than I thought I would. I don’t for obvious birth date reasons remember the 70’s series of the same name and don’t for some reason remember the 90’s revival of it either. Some people are saying that it’s in the possibility to be cancelled area, which I hope not, because if the rest of the episodes are just as good as the pilot, then I think it’s going to make a great series.

And this weekend it will be the last episode of Sherlock! I can’t believe it goes that quickly. I know a lot of people didn’t really enjoy episode two and I must admit I do miss the long case investigation type edge to it, but watching Sherlock get drunk – priceless! I also managed to finally watch The Brady Bunch Movie Sequel too, which I don’t even remember going anything like it did and I swear there were scenes in it that didn’t happen in the film I watched recorded from TV – unless they cut them for time reasons or something I don’t know. I could be thinking of an entirely different film!

The Annual Christmas Cold

I don’t think there is ever a December that goes by that I don’t get sick. Last year I had the mother of all colds, which meant I had to have a week off work, which is something I never do. I have the odd day, but never a whole week in a row, I think the most I’ve had off is two days. I am currently in the throws of another Christmas Cold but this one, touch wood, is not as bad and I can still go to work, even though it wasn’t great today working with a cold. But nevertheless, it would not be Christmas without one (though one year, I would like to see December clear and not delirious in cold!).

Christmas is fast coming round and while I thought I was pretty much prepared, I’m in fact not! You may notice the rather lovely pile of parcels in the twitter pic to the left and while I’d like to say they are all Christmas presents, only one is! The bloody problem with Christmas shopping is that you tend to browse and while you browse, you see so much bloody stuff you like, you end up spending more on yourself (at least I do!). I’m not too bad and think I have most of the stuff mentally bought just not physically. In theory, this means they are still in the shop and waiting for me, my name on them. I very much doubt that in reality!

I planned to watch some Christmas movies this weekend, but in fact, I watched 4 movies and non were Christmas related. As I was pretty much sofa bound on Saturday, I watched my cheer me up movie, which is Tangled! I could watch this movie so many times and never get sick of it! I just love the song “I See The Light”, it is one of my all time favourite Disney songs. Then after that, I watched my main man Thor – btw, I think The Dark World is so much better than the first, but if Thor is happening to be listening (he is currently sat opposite me in Lego form anyway), like children, I love them both equally. Then I also watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which gave me everything I could have wanted from a British movie – perfect.

On to last night and as soon as I saw this was on, I knew I just had to watch it. We all have our guilty pleasure movies that while might not have got the best reviews or might not be “Oscar” worthy as it were, you just can’t help but love and watch. And one of my all time favourites that I have watched since I was a kid, is The Brady Bunch Movie. I love that fact that as an adult, while I still remember loads of it, there were some bits that I understand now and realise how rude in fact they are. I love films like that, that children can watch, but adults can totally get an in joke from. I have a copy of it on VHS (that’s a video btw), but I looked it up on DVD and bloody hell is is expensive, because your can’t really get hold of it and I’m not being funny, but who wouldn’t want it on DVD. I am going to go and look in a replay shop tomorrow. And can I just say, I never truly appreciate how much Greg Brady is actually very good looking!!! As a child, I obviously didn’t appreciate that!
