As usual I’ve left it too late after the weekend and I can’t actually remember much of what I did last weekend. On Friday evening we didn’t really do much… on Saturday, Philippa’s parents and her aunt & uncle (who live in Australia) came round for the day. It was really nice to see them. We had a tour around Colchester Castle (very interesting), and as it was heritage weekend went and had a look round Peake’s house in the dutch quarter as well.
In the evening, after they’d gone we watched “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. It was a rather surreal film, very clever, but I’m not sure it’s one which I’d like to see again.
On Sunday morning, we went to church and then came back for lunch. In the afternoon, again due to heritage weekend, we went and had a look at St Leanord’s Church at the Hythe. It’s not used very much at the moment – it’s managed by the Churches Conservation Trust – but it’s a very beautiful church albeit in need of redecoration inside!
In the evening we went to see “Run, Fatboy, Run” at the cinema with Esther and Alex. It’s a really good film… Simon Pegg does well, and with Dylan Moran very very funny!
Ok, I think that’s all for now.
