Whilst I sit here contemplating my paperwork and other things I really must do, I thought I would waste some time blogging about my recent experiences.

I went to see Slumdog Millionaire the other evening and I am happy to report that it was absolutely brilliant. A very clever plot woven together with wonderful skill to produce a very satisfying whole. I highly recommend it and I can see why it won so many awards and has been nominated for Oscars.
If you like feel good films with morals which aren't in your face and you want something a bit different - go watch it. There were one or two moments that were a bit icky and I had to turn away but for the most part my eyes were glued to the screen. It certainly gave me a few ideas for my own writing!!

My other recent experience has been to watch Bracknell Bees ice hockey team. I have never been to see ice hockey before and whilst the rink wasn't sold out- the atmoshpere was good and Bracknell Bees delivered an entertaining match against the Isle of Wight players. The programme made for funny reading and as well as the game the chuck a duck and chuck a puck game that's played at the interval made it all entertaining.
