mamma mia mamma

Because I looked after my mum when she had her knee op the other day she decided she wanted to give me a treat. I don't expect to be rewarded for looking after my mum. Besides all I did was collect her from the hospital take her home. Get her sausage and chips and watch TV with her, stayed over night then left her to it while I went to work.


She did give me a shock when I saw her name on my mobile as it rang at about 10.15am, I thought there was something wrong but no she rang me to tell me that there was a whale stranded in Chichester Harbour. ( I actually knew more about it than she did as I had heard it on the radio as I drove to work). I think the anaesthetic has affected her even before she got to the hospital. My mother rang me to tell me the number at the hospital to ring to make sure she was ok. The number she gave me was 07301730..... !!!!! Then when I said thats a strange number she realised that was in fact the times 0730 to 1730 that the number would be manned.


So to give me a treat (I think really it was a treat to herself that she wanted company for) we went into town I dropped her off while I found somewhere to park then found her sat on a cosy sofa. Just as I arrived we were called to join a group of others going into the darkened room. Can you imagine my mother and her walking stick climbing the stairs in the dark right the way to the back of the room where we took our seats in the middle of the back row.


As the film ran I laughed so much, I cried , I tapped my feet and wanted to sing along. I am sure you have guessed by now that the film was Mamma Mia, absolutely fantastic. I have always rated Meryl Streep as a great actress, Julie Walters was hilarious, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth were tres sexy. (earlier tonight I saw an advert for hair colour for men,......... I don't know why men want to colour their hair, a touch of grey is so sexy on men). So if anyone catches me singing Abba songs its all my mum's fault.

Only a touch of grey huh? Define a touch of grey, 10%, 50% 80%.....

Haven't see the film yet. Mostly get to see films on DVD these days as we have to travel to get to a decent cinema.

Have just caught up with your busy life having been mostly away for a week or two. Haven't you had a good time! :)

The whale was actually in the mudflats at Langstone..Hayling Island which is just a 10 minute drive from here :) we went to have a look but it was a bit far out on the mud to see proper, so we decided to go in the Royal Oak pub instead lol....

My lads wouldnt go to the film either lol..... but I might go with me maties who have girls...
