M&Ms and the Dark Movies Painting

It’s a little game that’s actually pretty fun and very well done. It’s a treasure hunt where you search an original painting for visual puns that are the titles of “Dark Movies”.

It’s flash based and kind of resource intensive (if you’re on dial-up ... anyone still on dial-up?). You move around the image and click when you think you’ve identified a pun and input the title into the little box. The box glows green when you get it right and the pun fades. You don’t have to complete the game all at once, you can save it for later by inputting an email address.
There are 50 movie titles.

After a busy week with the kids at nanny's the kids had a ball, and naturally what happens when the sun come out.. yes you got it.. "can we go in the pool"? They were not going to let up, the solar system had been on for a while, the water was a bit chilly but to have a little sanity I thought ahh why not 10-15 min tops I think they were in there for.. but atleast they didnt ask again.
Definately kept us on the our toes, went shopping, visits to the park and being spoilt by all. Then it was time to go and move on and give nanny a rest.. off we go to Cazz's for the night we met for some lunch and more shopping then soon after back to Cazz's for a bit of drink or two or three. Been a busy week

Home again now, preparing for another big weekend.

Look Out Mum .. Here We Come !!!

Decided to visit mum during the kids school holidays. So up we got, packed the bags, and the car and headed off for your marathon 3hr trip. As Haden has just recently got his "Learners Driving Permit" , and after some nagging from him, I let Haden drive, thinking its highway travel and would be good experience for him. So trying to remain calm and not panic.. as mothers do, we were off and on our way. We experienced one small incident, with me yelling at the other bloody impatient driver who was clearly in the wrong .. I'm giving them the "bird (middle finger salute)", pointing to the "L" plates .. generally doing what I would have told him off for if he had of done so !!! But to his credit, he kept his cool, and handled things well. I might give him a new nic name though "LEAD FOOT ANGUS' had to pull him back a few times but overall he did great. Well we arrived safe and sound, got out the car, kissed the ground and got myself a stiff drink ....LOL !!!!

The kids drove me mental "are we there yet?" ... "are we there yet?"... after a while patient mum yells... "does it look like we are there yet", I had the kid nagging me, a lead foot when i wasnt watching... what a journey and we gotta get home yet.

Timothy(7), Kara(4) & Liam (3) were very happy to arrive at nan's with heaps of cuddles and kisses and not to mention a few lollies and chocolate frogs (I did question to make sure she did chocolate coat that lovely froggie in the spinach leaves packet)

Soon as we arrived I could smell the aromal of a lovely roast lamb cooking (good one mum), then the kids wanted to run inside and put there swimmers on, even though mum put on the solar heating system on the day before, the water is still a bit to chilly.. tomorrow on the other hand is going to be a lovely 27c.

Am of to visit my sister Donna, nephew and nieces tomorrow whilst mum goes and plays her pennant bowls, I think I'am banned from taking the kids down to the bowls to watch... mum says the kids might be a bit distracting ... I mean geeeee .... does she mean the kids would be loud and boisterous ... NOOO.. not my little cherubs ... hmmmm yeah right!!!!

Anyway am going to go and enjoy a lovely roast, will have some photo's to share later in the week.

Take Care
