Avatar on Blu-Ray

Just received Avatar on Blu-Ray from Amazon yesterday and watched it today. It's my favourite movie ever, but not only because of the special effects and that is was 3D in the movies, but because it represents a culture that we should all aim to get towards to, although I find we're getting further away from it day by day. I love watching Avatar with the brilliant Pandora planet that is unbelievably amazing and the Navis who are living a full life without stress and arguements. I do envy them... Hopefully we will wake up one day and start working together and appreciating each other instead of constantly fighting and stressing...

Winchester Craft Fair and New Pendant

Hi All :)
Sorry for being quiet for so long, the last week was very busy with organising and stock building.
I had a very successful craft fair in Winchester on Saturday that I have truly enjoyed. I have met some lovely crafters and hope to see them again very soon. :) We had great fun and talked to lots of customers.
I brought a new design with that was a leaf shaped fine silver (PMC) pendant with a Japanese symbol stamped in the silver. I hade one for Love, one for Happiness and one for Good Fortune they all found their happy owners by the end of the craft fair. I have enhanced these with pearls for Love, amethyst for Good Fortune and Rose Quartz for Happiness.
Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures, but planning to make more of these for the 3rd of May Craft Fair and I'll make sure to load a picture later. :)

Nintendo Wii JustDance

This is hilarious :) my OH is 'dancing' in the middle of the living room to That's the way I like it... sooo funny. I just finished 'dancing' to Cotton Eye Joe a minute ago, he has laughed his head off and promised he'll record it next time and put it on YouTube lol :) meanwhile Happy (the puppy) was holding onto my trousers while I was trying to dance... great fun :)
We have JustDance party with our neighbours this Saturday, so I feel lots of practice coming up...
This is a brilliant game, well worth buying, moves you around as well and gets the heart rate up if you could still move after all the laughing ;)

The Puppy and the Hedgehog

We have a gorgeous 10months old Cocker Spaniel puppy who I love to bits :) One night he drove me and my other half nuts as he kept barking and barking and just would not stop. I must add to this that he lives in the garden and has got the full run of the garden. When he was barking so loudly we decided to go and check out what actually was happening and we had a surprise picture when we opened the french door to the garden. Happy ( the cocker spaniel puppy) was sitting in front of the door looking at the hedgehog and barking at it. The funny thing was, that the hedgehog was looking back and watching the dog like he was saying 'What are you barking at?' :) it was sooo cute. Of course we have decided than this can't really go on long term as we had to wake up almost every hour for a night to stop Happy barking at the hedgehog. The next day we have waited until 9pm when the hedgehog came to visit Happy again and we took both of them into our living room to socialize. :) The hedgehog was not bothered at all, it happily explored the living room and was very interested in Happy and the tiny piece of cheese was gave him. Happy soon realized the hedgehog is now part of the pack and has not barked at it ever since, though his little hedgehog friend still comes and visits him every night, we wouldn't dare leave the cheese out for him though, as Happy would nick it straight away. lol :)
Unfortunately the camera battery went flat when we tried to take a picture of the hedgehog and Happy together, but I have attached one from Happy when he was just a baby.
