I've had my nose in The Hunger Games books.... I saw the movie and although I was upset at the thought of any city being so cruel (yeah I know it's just the movies, so I'm trying to calm down), I was nothing less of curious to find out what happens next... OH!
So, after reading the first book I managed to get my hands on the second, no less than 24 hours ago. Now I have finished the second book and my head hurts. But - on to the third I must go! And I will, indeed.
I really like the story. At first, having watched the movie first, I was sickened. But I did become curiouser and curiouser as friends of mine talked about the books with enthusiasm.
On a completely different note... I went to a wedding not so long ago. It was the wedding of a couple of dear friends of mine. I not only went to the wedding, but I participated. It was SO much fun!
The bride has asked my husband and I if we would sing the song that the bridal party would walk up the aisle to. I was so excited and gladly accepted.
You see, my husband is amazing. He plays guitar (and all sorts of other musical things) and sings. I used to, and still can, play the bass guitar. I love love love to sing.
We didn't know if we would have much in the way of a sound system, because the wedding was in the woods. That's another story if it's own, but I assure you, it was so lovely and romantic! So, armed with his accoustic guitar and lovely singing voice and me with just my voice, we sang a sweet song. It was terrific. That's all.
And here are some photos of my shoes. I'm kind of giggling about the build-up to these photos. It's all about the shoes, right?
|Top right, my pyjamas!|
Just kidding. Well, kind of. I wore these same shoes three years ago on the day of my wedding. They've had a little bit of wear since and got pretty scuffed up on the tips of the toes so I painted them. Just roughly, with a simple white paint to cover the brown/dirty-looking scruffy marks.
And, because the wedding was in the woods, I didn't want to be losing my shoes and accidentally step in a dog-turd (there were a few of those around), I tied them on with ribbons.
And here is what my son wore on his feet.
