You know when...

so we're all familiar with the now infamous Sony Bravia advert, but here's a genius 'UK-ified' version
- tee hee hee!

everything in its right place

have had one of those weekends where I've emerged feeling like I haven't had a weekend at all - but in a good, manically busy way! After a mad festival related crisis at work on Friday, I eventually managed to escape in time to swig a quick G&T before heading in for the fabulous Radiohead gig at Hammersmith. They played an amazing 2 hour set, featuring around 8 new tracks, plus loads of classic favourites, and it was a truly awesome gig. Afterwards we hit the bar around the corner for a couple of hours, before returning for the aftershow, and then pizza in the suite...somehow this all culminated in my rolling in home at around 4.30am...oops! Saturday featured a chilled out morning catching up on big brother footage - yes, the entire household is now hooked - followed by a virtuous spring cleaning session, most of which was energetically carried out by FMB,, whilst I more sedately tackled the bathroom... went to see 'Brick' in the evening, which I can thoroughly recommend - a really interesting film, with very slick dialogue, which features contemporary american high school students, but scripted in 1940's gangsterish film noir-ish stylee...
Sunday saw me successfully dragging myself out of my round sanctuary of bedness to go visit the lovely winchursts in their new home town of Southampton, where we spent a fun afternoon selecting blinds and lights for their new house, plus some very cute sparkly angel fairy lights for Izzy's room! And it's so muc easier to visit now they're in the same country - hurrah! And now I have to go cos BB's on!

And so, on the eve of Big Brother 2006, the only question on everyone's lips can only be....CNL are you ready to embrace your reporting duties for the next 4 months??!

And now for something completely different...

This weekend I spent most of my time chasing an 8metre tall elephant around the streets of central london....and absolutely amazing it was too! This spectacle was provided courtesy of the amazingly talented French company, Royal de Luxe. The sight of their giant puppets instantly reduced the massive crowds, myself included, into wide eyed, grinning, manic fools (in a good way!). The puppets told the Jules Verne story of 'The Sultan's Elephant'; a sultan who commissions a giant time travelling elepant (as you do) to track down a girl he keeps dreaming of... I took hundreds of pics, but for now, until I get round to posting on flickr, here are a few to give you a vague idea......
