Steamy and fun!

28 Jan

Thursday of the week just gone was a public holiday for the whole of the country in Australia. A day synonymous with bbqs, inflatible pools in the backyard and Triple Js Hottest 100 countdown. In Brisbane it was cloudy and ridiculous amounts of humid. It followed a few days of constant and relentless rain so the steaminess was right up there. Instead of a bbq a friend organised breakfast at the Gun Shop cafe in West End and it was packed and happening. We sat out the back and discussed how great it would be for a function. I’ll pencil it in as an option for my going away, or wedding perhaps.
Breakfast was great but we were all melting. I had a long mac and muesli with summer berries. Not my usual pick. But delightful. Then after all there was to do was stay cool. For me that involved hanging with Riga the gorgeous friends new kitten. Then the movies with S. We went to see The Muppets that one of my friends in particular has been waxing lyrical about for weeks now. It was loads of fun, and the tunes were so catchy and wonderful. We had a great time.

In the evening my viewing took a completely different path and I watched Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with Gary Oldman – it was fantastic. A slow burn, wonderful performances. I think it deserves a second watch as many of the characters were only mentioned by first name and I had a bit of trouble keeping up.

What films have been taking your fancy lately?

      L – that is so true! Quite cute and the tunes are catchy. I have a strong feeling that you would not approve!
