green little review

Poem for Wednesday, Water Gardens, Keeping Mum

Collapse )

My Tuesday consisted largely of chores and schlepping. Adam had plans to go see Harry Potter with his friends, but the friend's mother who was going to drive couldn't do it, so I ended up taking them. Then I had to rush back to grab lunch and take Daniel to his driver's ed class, and after an hour of reading news about the potential impending collapse of Britain's government and catching up on mail, I had to go out again to retrieve Adam and friends, then wait for Daniel.

I did get the laundry folded, and I did get to watch the very black comedy Keeping Mum, which dementordelta loaned me when she was here over the weekend. It has Maggie Smith in a hilariously wicked role, plus Rowan Atkinson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Patrick Swayze, Emilia Fox, and a ridiculously young Tamsin Egerton -- and its exteriors were filmed in Cornwall and the Isle of Man, so it's really gorgeous. Here are some more photos from Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens last weekend:

Happy Birthday, Adam!
