Thrilled with a Moy Tura Echoes scene I wrote last night involving Tuan, the search for the Lia Fail and general practices in this country when it comes to building motorways (i.e plough through an area thick with archaeological treasures as quickly as possible and hope no one notices, blindly ignoring those who do). All happy with m'self! Yes, I know, I get a little too jazzed when things go well.
Although I may have just invented a secret order of nuns who guard the holy grail. Didn't intend to. They sort of popped out suddenly when I wasn't looking.
Meanwhile Nuada is negotiating with the King of Sidhe in Newgrange at night. (Which worries me as it wasn't night anywhere else when I looked. Rats! WIll have to change that then).
Why won't they do what I tell them?????
And as for the villains, where the hell have they gone? Really have to track them down. Which was what Nuada was meant to be doing. This thing needs some action and it needs it quick! I feel a demonic black dog attack coming on. That'll teach them.
Anyway, struggling on, half in this world, half in that. I need to do some work on May Queen too, just to get the next part ready for the crit group. And I have to do crits.
We watched Pan's Labyrinth
last night which was just phenomenal! One of those wonders of European cinema which after standard Hollywood fare is like having your eyes washed out in lemon juice! Fantasy, disturbing, historical, tear jerking, and a line which made me laugh out loud and yell my agreement to the screen. Luckily I was at home rather than in a cinema. My husband still gave me that look
though. Oh, and it had one of the scariest, childhood nightmare inspired scenes of a demon, The Pale Man, which ate kids and had his eyes in the palms of his hands. Yuk and Wow!
It's both inspiring and depressing. I wish I could write like that!
At home, the kitchen is going to be done this weekend. We dragged ourselves and the children around shops looking for cookers, fridges, freezers and tumble driers yesterday evening. It was kind of hell on earth, as we were all too tired to do it and my daughter mainly signified this by screaming at the top of her voice. But we've picked what we want and can now order them. Fingers crossed they will be available before the weekend. The cooker is the main thing. The others we can slot in when they come but we need a cooker! Much as I would love to live on take away for a while, I don't think my waistline would handle it too well. It's taken long enough to get back to a reasonable clothes size as it is!!!
