It's Oscar!!

Busy weekend - Started with Auntie and M on Friday night in Morans followed by the Beehive - both of which I can highly recommend. Great night with great company, but Auntie didn't fare to well and we have a wonderfully funny story that will just run and run - so might be quite some time before she gets to live it down.

Saturday saw a large cooked breakfast, Mother's day shopping, The Vampires assistant, Harry Brown, a great sun-dried tomato spag-bol thing from Marks & Spencer and Episode 1 of Five Days.

Sunday saw shed building followed a great roast chicken and episodes 2 & 3 of Five Days. I was trying to stay awake for the event of the season, but to no avail...so now...

Happy Monday!!... "How could I possibly be expected to handle school on a day like this?" Crack of dawn and I'm sat watching the Oscars which I helpfully pre-recorded last night. Got to just get up and watch it before I hear it all over the news - Talk about Spoilers!!! I already had to shout had Chris-boring-Moyles who tried to trash it for me at 7am. Why do they do them on a Sunday and not a Saturday ?? Thank god for fast forward - at least I don't have to endure endless adverts and Claudia-stick insect-Winkelman! Anyway, I made my predictions on Sunday and here's how I got on (if you don't want to know the results don't click the links). So without further ado...
