Sex and The City

Sex and The City 2 has been released and all the reviews have been bad. All the reviews I have read have been written by men. This may be a sweeping statement but NO HETEROSEXUAL MALE WILL EVER LIKE SEX AND THE CITY. Straight men are not the target audience- its the gals and the gays that like it. We are the ones that "get it". To be honest if the producers were aiming at the male hetero audience, SJP wouldn't be in the lead role- it would be Meg Ryan (before weirdy face) or Julia Roberts.
I haven't seen the film yet, but I will. I can believe that these women are really friends ( unlike Desperate Housewives. I love the opulence of it all, how they are all insanely rich, the clothes , the places where they live ....I just love it all. It is pure escapism.

Tweet, tweet

I have just had a clean up of Twitterers that I follow. Mainly media types that all tweeted each other about their fab life and where they were meeting for lunch. I thought, hang on, is this insidious advertising? Apart from that it got quite boring to read _ I wasn't part of this social whirl.
My social whirl was going to the SX festival with Mr R at the weekend. It wasn't perfect - and the weather was ropey,but it was great that something like this was happening at Southend. it felt quite punk, watching unsigned acts play. Is it me or are bands getting younger, you know like police men are? I'd deffo go next year.
Finally our HD telly has got its HD source. It is brilliant. I love telly I do *happy sigh*

Out Riders

I have been mainly watching the Election news since Friday. The thing I have learnt is that The Whistlers are actually called Out Riders.

Decorating part 2

We have finished the walls. Now we need to do the paint work. Steve thinks this is a "as and when" job. I think it is a next Sunday job. I wonder who will win?
Actually I am very worn out. I took Tom for a 2 hour walk to wear him out, s owe could get on with the decorating. When I got home , Tom went to sleep and I started to help Steve...

The Robbos are relunctant decorators. However this weekend we are painting the landing and hall way - a job that has needed doing for years. Now, I'm not a magnolia girl, we are painting the hall way lilac bloom. I painted this bit.

I got my hair trimmed and coloured today. It is the darkest I have been (apart from when I dyed my hair jet black when I was going through a punky phase in my teens). Steve took a photo of me on my new phone. Look at my English teeth! And I have gone to the dentist every six months ALL my life!

And here is a photo of Steve.
