Weather #Blogtober17 day 23

Goodness me, we have had some strange weather this past week. I hope you have all kept safe from the stormy weather.
Most bizarre was the red sun and yellow sky effect on Tuesday. It was really spooky and seemed like a sci fi film or the apocalypse!
I don’t really know what happened this summer but there were certainly no scorchers this year! 🙁 It seemed to be mostly overcast from what I recall.
Looking ahead to winter, am I the only person in the world who gets excited by the idea of snow but actually hates it when it appears? There is something magical about seeing the world covered by a snowy blanket and being the first person to walk through it is a special event.
 
But after a few hours it usually just becomes a cold slush which is decidedly less appealing. And don’t even get me started on the traffic and car nightmares that are always associated with snow!

 


Villains and superheroes #Blogtober day 22

Chris and I are watching the 3rd season of Gotham at the moment and really enjoying it. It is fun trying to work out how the characters in this prequel relate to our knowledge of them in their futures.

 

The thing that winds me up about superheroes is that they are too GOOD and the baddies always get away. Usually the villains are more entertaining and fun which is probably why Gotham works so well, while the heroes are a little dull or deeply flawed.
Films like X Men have tried to redress the balance slightly but I haven’t bothered going to the cinema to see a superhero film in a LONG time as it is not my favourite genre.
Matthew has gone through an Iron Man obsession but the films are not suitable for him yet 🙁
That is his hero face in case you are wondering!
There has also been a lot of semi nudity as he rips his top off to become Hulk. Indeed, ‘Hulk SMASH!’ has got to be one of the most unhelpful film quotes of all time!
Last month I wrote that Chris may be a superhero due to his ability to parent so easily. Maybe I do have a thing for superheroes after all…

#MySundayPhoto half term holidays begin!

I am so excited about the start of half term. I know the kids will be driving me crazy very soon but right now I can’t wait to spend time together. Here is what they have been up to this week:
Zach ‘helped’ with the washing after dumping the previous folded pile on the floor.

Anya did face painting at school. She is a parrot. Obviously…

Matthew finished his Roman topic with a dress up day
