I thought I'd jinxed it but the very next day this is what I saw when I looked out the bedroom window
It's still freezing, but there are signs of life in the garden too - see?
That's a cute chick my colleague gave me. I bit off its head.
So yesterday, on a whim, Claire and I decided to go to the cinema. For the first time in so long, I seriously can't remember when we last went! The plan was to go Harrow on the Met line but of course it was suspended due to engineering work. In the end we got a taxi (eeek) to Vue Watford, bought our tickets (more eek!) and, as it was lunchtime, went to the concession to get some, um, "food". Triple eek! Boy was it an expensive outing, but oh so worth it. We saw Danny Boyle's "Trance" and it blew our minds. I can't even tell you the plot, really, and I'm glad I didn't read the Guardian's review before I went because, honestly? I don't think they saw the same film we did.
