Last Minute Christmas Ideas - Adult Colouring Books

Adult colouring books made a great stocking stuffer or just a nice gift idea for people who are hard to buy for.

Here are a few of my favourites.

The Lust List - Sally Spratt

This is the perfect colouring book for people who enjoy the finer things in life - whether they have the funds or not - you can just colour them in and dream.

Roald Dahl: A Marvellous Colouring Adventure

45 images to colour, based on Roald Dahl's amazing books. Such a perfect gift for both children and adults who love the brilliance of Mr Dahl.

Mindfulness Moments - Emma Farrarons

Nice, smaller colouring book to pop in your bag. Beautiful, relaxing images to colour in by French illustrator, Emma Farrarons.

Singer, Bobby Vee, has passed away

Bobby Vee has died, aged 73. 

He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011.

Love this kitschy music video of his 1962 hit song, The Night Has A Thousand Eyes.

He also sung, Rubber Ball and another one of my favourites, Take Good Care Of My Baby.

Grease fan theory - was Sandy dead the whole time?


Well that's the theory of some people on Reddit.

So, here is what they believe really went down in the movie.

She drowns at the beginning of the film. Danny tried to save her, but she went into a coma.

The entire story takes place inside Sandy's mind as a dream.

Sandy sings 'Goodbye to Sandra Dee', as she knows the end is nigh.

Then, as we see Sandy and Danny fly into the sky, in the car, that's Sandy dreaming of her last moments before she dies. Phew! 

Sounds likes these theory people have vivid imaginations :)
