my splendid missus sue just got accepted onto a phd course starting in september.
this is a big thing for us - it's quite a career swerve for her and it'll be a bit of a learning curve for all of us as a family [she won't be working teacher's hours for a start, so school holidays will be interesting!]
it's exciting though!
last nite me and the boys went to the opening film of the leeds young people's film festival, which is a great annual event in our calendar... the movie that they'd chosen to open with was 'monsters vs aliens', and despite a slow start [not unlike 'the incredibles', actually] it really gets going and we all loved it. i laughed so hard at one point that i lost a filling [absolutely true, though i was also chewing a toffee at the time...]
if you liked shrek and kung-fu panda, then i suspect you'll enjoy monsters vs aliens too...
so that's two movies in a week. it's almost like having a social life... :-)
