Thanks for popping in.
Can’t stop long. Got a date with Dave. He’s taking me to the flicks! Guess which film….I’ll give you a clue…. I don’t do Psycho head stuff, I don’t do War, I don’t do thrillers, I don’t do tragedy, I don’t do chick flicks and I don’t do porn – it makes my eyes water.
MARY POPPINS IT IS THEN !!!!!!!!
Grace called yesterday, and was raving about it. Lucky girl got comp tickets to attend a special New York showing, with a live Emily Blunt QA session. Dave wasn’t as excited as me, to be honest, and even suggested I go with a girlfriend. Now I can’t say for sure when he went online and pre-ordered deluxe armchair seats for this evening at Tunbridge Wells, but it was either when I said not to worry, I would go alone, or when he tripped over my bottom lip.
I loved the original, and Grace assures me that the new remake is fantastic. I remember the magic of it as a child when it came out in 1964, and I remember watching it through my kids’s eyes when they were young. We knew all the words to all the songs, and we would sing them together tirelessly. I remember they were doing a rendition of it at Mark‘s school, and he was one of the chimney sweeps. And I remember him larking about in the supermarket, prancing and dancing up the aisle, belting out chimchimanychimchimanychimchimcharoo! And Grace was mortified in case anybody she fancied saw her with this loony little brother. And as soon as he picked up on that, he took it to a whole other level, a whole other dance routine and a whole other volume!! Yep, Mary Poppins lives on, and apparently Dick Van Dyke can still dance at the ripe old age of 93!! I bet his cockney accent is still crap though!
Anyway, what’s this got to do with craft? Absolutely NOTHING. But I will leave you with something crafty… Last time I did a Youtube with Josie’s Queens Duet grids, many of you Eagle-Eyes spotted a roll of Groovi Tabs on the counter. Ooooh! Where can we buy a roll of them, instead of a piddly little pack of 16, was the chorus… So we took a look, did our sums, and worked out a really good deal for those of you who asked so nicely!
500 sticker tabs would usually cost £93.44. So we can reduce that to a bulk-buy price of £60, plus your club discounts. (We can do that because nobody has to sit and count out and cut and pack the little packs!)
