Phil and Jane

Phil and Jane came to stay for the weekend. Lots of fun was had all round.

The boys went to Murrayfield to see Scotland v The Pacific Islands and I was told it was an excellent game. Jane and I were quite surprised when we met up with them after the match and they were totally sober. However this was not due to abstinence on the boys' behalf, but the fact that there was no beer tent in the rugby ground.

Jane and I were not so restrained. We went into Edinburgh for a shopping spree, a nice 3 course lunch with wine, more shopping and then gins in the pub. We then all came back to Linlithgow for a meal in Bar Leo, our local Italian restaurant. Phil had the most gigantic steak ever.

On Sunday we went to see the new Bond Movie, which I thought was brilliant. In fact I would go as far as to say it is the best Bond movie ever. (in my opinion - you can disagree, I don't mind) It was much more realistic than Bonds of previous years, more gritty, less corny (although still a bit corny naturally.)

The product placement for Sony was absolutely outrageous and once you notice it you'll see it more and more. They had sony lap-tops, sony mobile phones, sony cameras, blue ray disks, and everytime they opened a drawer to get a gun there was a sony mp3 player in the drawer with the gun. It was hilarious.

Laughable product-placement aside, I thought the new Bond was fab.

(And not only because he spends 90% of the film bare-chested / dripping wet / both)

yeah but do you think he's actually good looking? I'm not sure he is. He has got a funny pouty mouth and his pecs are too high up his body. He looks all wrong to me.

He's definitely got the "Posh Spice" pout going on. It's a weird look.

The reason his pecs look too high is because he's a diddly little short fella.

You should try and see Daniel's best film ever "Layer Cake". It's a british film a bit like Lock Stock. The first part of the film is really confusing - then it gets going and is really good. It has the best ending of a film EVER!!! He's really good looking and hunky in the film, and he's a little unsure of himself which is better!
