Pictures of Matchstick Men
7th July 2012
I planned on blogging yesterday but the day didn’t go as planned. My mum had to go into hospital which scared and upset me. She told me not to worry but that’s what I do. I always worry. Luckily she came home around 7pm and there is nothing to worry about. Just doctors being over cautious. But that’s never a bad thing.
On Wednesday I went to see the new Spider-man film, The Amazing Spider-man. Out of the previous three films I had only seen the first one, and to be honest I wasn’t that impressed. I was hoping that this one would be better and it was. A lot better. Like when I went to see The Avengers a few months ago, I was on the edge of my seat and I really got into the story. I thought the story was great, possibly better than that of The Avengers, but don’t make me choose between the two films. I can’t pick! After the cinema we decided to have a late lunch so we went to Pizza Hut. I had a Hawaiian and Ty had a margarita.
I’ve always been a DC Comics fan. Even from a young age I remember liking Batman more than any other superhero. But recently I’ve started to become a fan of Marvel. I think I prefer the heroes from Marvel but I prefer the villains from DC Comics.
Tomorrow I’m going to a book launch, but not just any book launch. My brother’s first book is being published! I’m not sure whether I’ve mentioned this before but my brother, who is 9 years older than me, is an illustrator. This book is a children’s book and the characters he has created are amazing. They’ve also made some merchandise to go with the book such as mugs and badges. I’m definitely going to get myself a copy of the book and I’m taking my camera so I might get some pictures if I’m allowed to. I’m really excited about it. I’ve never been to anything like this before. I’m not even sure what to wear to a book launch.
Next Friday I will be on my way to Portugal for two weeks. As some of you may know, I go to Portugal every year and I have done for about the past 5 or 6 years. We have friends who own a villa and apartment out there in the town of Lagos. We basically stay in which ever place is available at the time and this year we will be staying the villa. It’s more like a town house rather than a typical style of villa. Although I’m not really bothered where we stay, I do like the villa as I get a room with a double bed and a small balcony with steps up to the roof terrace.
If I don’t blog before then, I will definitely blog when I am away. I’m not taking my laptop but I have the WordPress app on my phone. I might even post some pictures on my photoblog, but they will be off my phone so I apologise in advance for the rubbish quality.
