Just a quick one

Hello there dearies! Just thought I'd best put in an appearance on the ol' blog in case you think I've forgotten her again :o)

I actually meant to post last night, but then I went out on an impromptu 'date' with the NBM. We had a lovely time; we went to the flicks and watched Juno, which I can wholeheartedly recommend (we both enjoyed it, anyway). And beforehand we went for a cheap-and-cheerful tea at a Mexican restaurant. So a fun evening was had by all - and it was nice to do something a bit different of an evening.

The other very exciting thing about going out was that it took us past a newsagents, where I managed to find a copy of a magazine I was looking for. I had seen this post from Moogsmum and really loved the softie cow from a magazine she'd found (pic at the bottom of the post); being ever-willing to jump on a bandwagon, I thought I might attempt a cow of my own, so that's why I wanted that mag... only now that I've seen the pattern I'm feeling a bit daunted! I'm still going to give it a shot, but don't watch this space :o)

Erm... I think there was something else, possibly even including pictures.... but I don't seem to be able to remember what it was. So maybe I will just cut my losses and click 'publish' (the sure-fire way of remembering whatever I'd forgotten to say!)

Oooh I'd love to see Juno but Moogsdad is all about boys films and shooting and stuff. Having said that he's gone highbrow tonight and is watching an Adam Sandler film!!

Good luck with your little moo :)

Ha ha, you and me both ..... I had to go into three magazine-selling shops today before I stumbled across the last one on the shelf in the Co-op.

That Moogsmum, she's really started something, hasn't she?

I have to say though .... the knitting and crochet patterns in there - apart from the teddy - leave A LOT to be desired. Still, I guess that it is a Woman's Weekly mag, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

I shall look forward to seeing the cow in future posts .....

Oops - I forgot to say .... a date! How exciting!! I remember those ..... vaguely ....

Was the Mexican Casa Mexicana perchance?

I saw juno at the weekend and thought it was great. Well worth a watch.

I bought the magazine after Moogsmum 'advertised' it too - they should really give her a little something for her trouble shouldn't they? She must have boosted profits.

I only liked the teddy and the cow on first perusal - I've yet to read it properly though. Good luck with the cow - I shall have a bash at it at some point too.

Snap! And M.M. I got mine at co-op too!!!!

Seems like the co-op is one of the only places that stocks said magazine as my local newsagents didn't have it and neither did Asda - I had to send out the Moogsmum herself to get me one from her co-op!

How I'd love to be able to go to the cinema with Mr Locket rather than with the three little Lockets one day!

Have you seen the new cow over at Fuzzy Mitten. He's a cute little "cowboy"
