So this is where you were

carastradebump.jpg Apologies for the lack of scribbling over the last couple of days, I’ve been having a couple of days off for some R&R with the family, catching up on jobs around the homestead and fixing the car. I’m pleased to announce that these aims were accomplished on all three fronts and I’m especially pleased that the Youthblog mobile is now the same shape as other Astra Estates. Some of you may have noticed the concave front bumper and various other scratches, bashes, cracks and blemishes, which are no more! I have developed green-fingers but sadly rather than this being a new found gift for gardening, it is in fact just car paint, hey ho!
Another success was making it to the cinema to see Ratatouille which I thoroughly enjoyed. The art work was amazing and it was an affectionate tribute to Paris and to good food. The story was witty and original, the characterisation was fun and it’s a definite thumbs up from me. My youngest however got a bit bored, I suspect that it’s too gentle a storyline for a 7 year old and the film is more of an endearing one than a grippingly engaging one, but I thought this was a strength not a weakness.
I had also (rather optimistically) planned to read a whole bunch of youth ministry books but didn’t manage anything heavier than the news paper!
