We went to see the current big hit movie for the grey and creaky set, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, on Friday night, but it was sold out. We had a meal at a crowded pub in Riccarton and went home to plan a repeat visit.
On Saturday morning I bought advance tickets, and we showed up for the Saturday 6pm session to join the stream of 60-plus people yet again packing the theatre. The movie was OK, but not great, in my opinion. It was also a bit long, and I found myself checking my watch in the second hour. A strong cast of British stars carried the rather weak story along, but I won't be rushing to any similar efforts.
On Sunday I fitted a new outboard motor bracket to my boat, and organised a new tarpaulin cover; a job that's been due for a while. Now back for a 4 day week at work, then after Easter I start a stint as AV group leader.
