9 years and counting...
a mostly low-key anniversary this year. There's been a lot of changes to his work and our home life that it has crept up on us. I was surprised by this gorgeous impressive bunch of roses last night. They smell divine!!!!
Mum is here today helping me around the house. We've cleaned rooms, re-potted plants, baked 2 batches of biscuits and I managed to complete some scrapbooking. She kindly made some pizza and pepperoncini to share for lunch today. Isn't she the sweetest person???
I joined in (belatedly) the Recipe Scrap last night at Forever Always. Kye did a fabulous job keeping the instructions running along at a swift pace and I was happily snoozing by 10pm.
I really hope Lilly likes these layouts because she gave me permission to cut the original 5x7 prints!! Thank goodness there are a few pics that are the same-ish and lots of scenery so makes for very easy cropping!!
"Mongol" (Palace Cinemas)
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING story. If you like your History, you will LOVE this movie. It's the story of Genghis Khan (Temudgin) - his childhood, his banishment, his battles and eventual success in uniting all the Mongol tribes. I cried, I covered my eyes (those fight scenes are a little graphic) and I laughed. I knew the man from studying Chinese History at Uni, but it was still clouded with my neo-Euro prejudices. I find so many similarities between Temudgin and Saladin - it's making me want to grab my study materials and start all over again...................
maybe not!! PMSL...like I have time......
