Sadly this was from the other day, as London is rainy and grim again (what's new) it's getting really annoying my summer clothing is screaming 'wear me' and I have to throw on a jumper instead! So at the first beam of any sun light, I am grabbing any summer clothing and risking it. So these are the jeans that I dip dyed, you can't see the top of them but they are a darker blue -they were suppose to be a lilac but I got a dud one I think and the dye was blue so a little upset. If only now I was on my way to the beach, book in one hand cocktail in the other and the smell of sea salt in the air. Instead it's the smell of peoples smelly feet in shops, and trying to remember what I went in the shop for ( yeah my brain is still mushy).
I have been watching heaps of films lately, and there are so many I would recommend - One being 'We need to talk about Kevin' I will warn you it's pretty full on. I have to say it's so though provoking and having boys myself it really hit a very unsettling chord, it also really made me look at how in the past I have blamed parents for what a child has done. Let me fill you in a little so this makes sense, Kevin is a teen a rather twisted boy and he does a terrible thing for which his mother really pays for. Is it really right for a mother to suffer for her child's bad choices (when I say child Kevin is about to turn 16), when a teen shots up their school or does something beyond comprehension we blame the parents.

This film shows the relationship between the two, and how sadly a mother just wants to really love her son even if he is a twisted monster. It's so, so tragic and I just wanted to cry, but I think it will make me stop and think before saying ' well it's the parents '. I'm not sure if I could ever love my child if they did something like this, but when you have raised them to be good people it must crush your soul (I felt crushed for her, even as a kid he was a brat). I think she blames herself as most parents do, clearly Kevin even as a child had something missing. Sometimes you don't want to give up on someone, even if they are damaged. Like I said a film that will have you questioning yourself.
