2 : Taylor get to play Jacob in New Moon
As you can tell from my blog I love Twilight (I had you fooled didn't I lol) and am a proud member of Team Jacob (I love Edward too, but there's just something about Jacob). So I was so excited to hear that Summit have decided to keep Taylor as Jacob for New Moon. Yay!!!!
3: Anne Frank
This week the BBC have been showing a new adaptation of 'The Diary of Anne Frank' and it has been fantastic. Young actress Ellie Kendrick is fantastic as Anne.4: Mini Eggs
When I went food shopping this week, I knew Christmas was truly over as the Easter eggs were out already!!! I do love Mini eggs though and a packet fell into my trolley lol.....
5: Sorting my Stash
Martin got me some 'really useful storage boxes' for Christmas and I have had great fun sorting out my stash (finding things I forgot I had) and becoming more organised.....
