Last week was half term and the weather was amazing!
We tried to get out and about as much as possible. These are a few things that made
us me giggle…
Happy Monday 🙂
7 weeks till the summer holidays…
In my search for gorgeous posters and prints, I’ve come across some pretty funny stuff.
I just had to share ’em:
And these are probably my most favouritest. Hi-la-ri-ous!
Recently, LOML entered a competition via Facebook to win a new smart phone. For me. He worked really hard to get loads and loads of votes for a funny poem he wrote about the phone. He got the most votes. But he didn’t win. ‘Technicalities’. Yes, we still have sour grapes about it.
Anyway, since then he has been
obsessed determined to win me a new phone and manages to find all sorts of giveaways and competitions.
The most recent was to win a Nexus S by creating something geeky and edible.
We love android, and think it beats the iPhone anyday. Warning: no offence to iPhone users, but an Apple does get harmed in this photo-story…
This is the (tongue-in-cheek) story of our edible entry’s creation:
Aaaaawwww, how lovely was the royal wedding??
And how utterly gorgeous was Kate’s dress? I mean, the Duchess of Cambridge’s dress. Do you think we can still refer to her as Kate (as though we know her on first name terms, lol)? She looked so graceful and elegant and poised. Well done to her!
I keep thinking back to little moments, like William leaning over as Kate and her father arrived at the altar, and whispered something like, ‘ I though this was supposed to be a small family affair’. And when they drove out of Buckingham Palace in a decorated car – like ‘normal’ newlyweds (except that most newly married couples aren’t driving out of a palace in an Aston Martin with throngs of crowds and cameras, but as normal as a royal couple could possibly attempt to be).
But do you know what was not cool?? The camera work in the Abbey – we missed Kate’s veil being lifted away from her face! One moment she was still covered, then pan out to watch some stuffy VIP’s singing, and then – oh look – we can see Kate’s face. Ummm, that’s a pretty important moment! I want to know how and who and when. Did her father take it off? Can anyone fill me in on what’s traditional at a royal wedding when it comes to veils?
And then Sky tv coverage also managed to miss the second balcony kiss during the flypast. NOOOOOOOO! Sure, it was nice to see a bird’s eye view of Buckingham Palace from the camera in the plane, but not when it meant we didn’t see the kiss. And it was the better kiss, upon watching highlights (and then re-watching it on endless endless reruns!)
You just gotta love the little flowergirl covering her ears during the noisy flypast 🙂
Did any of you see the riderless horse running after the open carriage carrying Wills and Kate to Buckingham Palace after the ceremony?? Brilliant! Apparently the rider fell off (the horses were walking for goodness sake!) and got a good telling off for it!
Ah, it’s all these little funny moments that really make a memorable wedding…. any of you have funny wedding moments of your own that made your day special?
I drove behind a van emblazoned with the company name ‘Stay Dry Roofing’. Surely keeping you dry is the most basic and obvious expectation of a roof. If that’s their best selling point, I don’t think I’d use them to replace my roof.
Calvin & Hobbes rock!
If you’ve never seen a C&H strip you are missing out! Here a few quotes to give you an idea…
(And those of you who have a C&H book shoved under a pile of last year’s filing will want to blow off the dust and read it from cover to cover all over again.)
“Nothing I do is my fault.” – Calvin
“You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don’t help.” – Calvin
“If you couldn’t find any weirdness, maybe we’ll just have to make some!” – Hobbes
“Reality continues to ruin my life.” – Calvin
“One of my baby teeth came out! I have to say, I’m not entirely comfortable holding a piece of my own head.” – Calvin
[Thank you, Quote Addict. ]
I also belong to a group on Facebook called ‘All I needed to know I learned from Calvin and Hobbes’.
If I’ve piqued your curiosity, have a look at Go Comics for a quick look or receive a daily dose of this pair on your mobile.
Hope it makes you laugh and brightens your day 🙂
