Oh my what a frantic week this has been. Remember how this time last week I was hankering after a bigger flat… Well, things have moved on considerably from there. At the weekend we went to view several flats (really not intending to actually buy anything yet) and found one we really liked. By Tuesday I had viewed it again and decided that I didn’t want to pass it by. We then proceeded to get an additional mortgage rushed through, put our current flat on the market and, finally today, we put an offer in for the flat. 😀 It’s quite scary and the past week has been dizzifying. Now we’ll just have to wait until Tuesday to find out if our offer has been accepted. Fingers crossed. And if it is successful, fingers crossed that our current one will sell damn quick. 😐 Anyways, three bedrooms and a small garden… bliss.
I saw Constantine last Saturday. I wasn’t sure what to expect as the reviews had been quite bad, but I actually quite enjoyed it. It looked damn good visually and I for some reason always like films with some religious ‘fantasy’ about them. And it must be said that it was possibly the best anti-smoking advert I’ve ever seen. =P Keanu is always criticised for his stiff acting, but I think he fitted the role really well. And I loved loved loved the fact that Tilda Swinton was playing Gabriel. I regocnised her straight off from only seeing her back. 😛 Since Orlando she’s been the one and only choice to play the ultimate hermaphrodite. The biggest let down was Gavin Rossdale, who really should have stuck to looking pretty and singing well, acting is really not your thing, love. But anyways, if you like special effects and some angel action – do go see it.
The Hours was on TV the other night and that was the third time I’ve seen it. I must say it just gets better and better with each viewing. Rarely do you see such touching and deep performances on screen. The whole cast is just so very good. Especially Ed Harris. God, he just breaks my heart. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but to me it’s one of the most beautiful and touching and real films ever.
I took some Easter pics tonight, just to unwind from all the stress and stuff. Cute things. 😛 Mmmm four days of holiday (and of trying not to think of the possible new home) ahead. Bliss. I wish you all happy Easter. <3
