Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe

The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll FlandersThe Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book.
Although often times sad, it gives you a glimpse into how hard life was in those times.
Moll Flanders comes across as many things, from sad, to even heartless at times, especially where her children are concerned, to loyal and an opportunist.
The only bad thing I have to say is that there were too many typos in this edition.

Scenic Tree's.

I was standing at my back door just gazing out, when the tree's at the bottom of my garden caught my eye.
I just like the light and shadow effect with the blue sky and clouds.

Nice Day

We had a lazy day in today and we all stayed in our PJ's. I did some stitching and in between we all made cakes.
This is Joshua with the cakes he made and decorated:


And this is Ashley with his cakes:


I made a triple chocolate cake:


Colin decided he was going to bake as well and dropped a pot of cocoa powder all over the floor, boy did it make a mess! Needless to say, he had to clear it up because I was not going to lol. Chef he aint ;-)

This evening we sat down with a slice of cake and watched Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz. I enjoyed it but I wouldn't of let the boys watch it if I had known there was a  topless titty scene in it. Mind you, being 14 the boys just looked away a bit embarrassed lol and did the silly giggle thing.

Nice night in.

Had a lovely evening tonight.
I made a nice chocolate cake and Colin, the twins and myself sat and watched Cowboys and Aliens starring Daniel Craig. It started off a bit weird but during the film, you begin to understand the weird start via flashbacks. It also stars Harrison Ford.

I've been suffering with bad depression lately. I have had a lot of worries lately including money worries, so it is probably down to that. The twins always cheer me up!

The last several months I have let my blogging slip. I had lots I could of blogged about but did not, and now I am a bit stuck with what to blog about now lol. Sods law I guess.

Yesterday I was supposed to have my Colonoscopy but it got cancelled again. Can't say I mind too much as it was not something I was looking forward to!

I had a great year drumming with Section 5. Currently we are on a break and start practice up again in March.
