Monday Links For The Week … Imax & Some Christmas Inspiration …

Hello everyone … hope you are all having a wonderful Monday morning … It’s been raining like mad since last night … it’s amazing … I had a Dr’s appointment this morning and had been planning to walk as its only 5mins from home … but ended up driving cause of the rain … I don’t have sensible shoes or even an umbrella … never thought I would need one in Dubai … ah well … the weather should clear up and be lovely and sunny by the time the weekend rolls around … just in time for when my Mum get’s here … I’ve been counting down the days … really excited to see her soon!

photo 1Oh and this weekend we went to see the Hobbit at the new Imax cinema at the Meydan complex … it’s the largest Imax screen in the Middle East … and it was pretty huge … the building itself is really nice inside … quite understated but with interesting finishing touches and design …

photo 2The film itself was rather enjoyable … I never finished reading the book when I was a child … I think I was probably abit young for it and it didn’t hold my interest much at the time … but I did like the film … Martin Freeman was brilliant as Bilbo … but at 2hrs 49mins I literally had to run out just before the film ended to get to the toilet … it’s a movie that needs an intermission!

photo 3Ok you all know the process … Below is a random collection of stuff that I’ve been looking at/reading/procrastinating over this last week … been keeping with the Festive spirit so there are plenty of Christmas related links below … let me know if you have anything to add to the list by dropping me a message in the comments …
