It's Wednesday and ordinarily I would be sharing a photo of my workdesk.
But I can't. Cos my workdesk is in Yorkshire and I'm currently in North Wales, having a mini break at my mum's with the kids. I meant to take a photo of my desk before I left, so I could post it today, but tbh in the frantic chaos of a) getting everything packed for myself and 2 small kids and b) trying to get craft projects finished up before I left, I just plain forgot! :lol:
Needless to say, I left the desk in a state of utter chaos, having spent the previous week or so trying to get as far ahead as possible on DT projects in advance of my few days away.
Soo... seeing as I have no workdesk photo to share this week, I shall do as I threatened last week and fill my WOYWW post with excited bletherings about the Wolverine movie, that I finally got to see last weekend! ;D
It. Was. Awesome.
I don't know what the critical reviews will say about it, but as a long-time Wolverine fan, it was total fangirl heaven. :) I love how they reinterpreted the source material (the Claremont/Miller series of Wolverine comics from the 80s depicting Logan's time in Japan), I loved the storyline (I'm a sucker for anything to do with Wolverine's healing factor), I loved Yukio (she was fabulous), the action/fight scenes were freaking awesome, there were some lovely humorous moments and there were also some genuine "Oh my god!" moments.
I loved it so much that, seeing as I'm here at my mum's and therefore have a babysitter... I went to the cinema on my own tonight and saw it again! :lol:
Yes, I am a sad geeky fangirl. I'm thinking seriously about making some Wolverine ATCs. :D
Anyhooo... hope you're having a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'll be spending the next couple of days mostly doing trips out with the kids and my mum. Hoping the weather picks up so that we might get to spend a little bit of time on the beach. If not, it'll be zoos and petting farms and the like until we head home on Friday. :)
I'll be back with the usual desk photo next week. :)

Hope you have a great time! Ah, petting zoos - that takes me back! My kids are twenty-two and nineteen now! Sometimes though I reckon they'd jump at the chance to visit a petting zoo again! I don't think it's 'sad' to have enthusiasms! I'm not a Wolverine fan (sorry, though I can see the appeal) but I think it's lovely to really get excited and involved about anything that you love - that's being alive in my book! Julie Ann xx #41

Ha! You're addicted. I haven't and probably won't see it..but only because it's the wrong genre for me...if it was an hour and half interview with HJ and pics of his life to date..I'd be there, waving my tenner!! Enjoy your break!
