last day of the year

leave a comment »

Well, here we are then. The last day of the year and all is quiet. All our vistors left yesterday and Elise has been at Wayne’s so it is just the three of us left. It is very quiet here. Mark went into the Amnesty Bookshop to do his last shift of the year. Eva and I went to Cribbs to take some clothes back and to potter then we went to see Enchanted. Eva has been desperate to see it all holidays – and I think I’ve been quite keen as well. We both loved it. It had a reasonable sense of self-reflection and irony though I still think the Disney smaltz was a little on the heavy side. The thought of a city lawyer marrying a simple, innocent, Disneyfied pale thin virgin in preference to his long-term designer ‘woman of the world’ left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. But at least we didn’t have to see them snog too much or have any nasty sex scenes. The moral ending was a bit confused and I am not sure if (according to the film) true redemption was found in this world or if we still need Disney to save us???? I discussed this with Eva who was very sure that God would still be involved if it was a ‘really true story’. At least one of us can tell the difference between fact and fiction.

We met Mark for a spot of lunch then came home to rest – for some reason we are still very tired and can’t be bothered to move from the house again today. We have this made capped plan to go to Wookey Hole tomorrow. We have free tickets and rather than stay at home festering on the first day of the year we thought we’d spend it down a hole in Somerset – and why not?

Well, I hope you have a lovely rest of the last day of the old year…and Happy New Year! xxx
