It can't be Thursday again already, surely?! Here we are, hurtling towards the end of another week...
I went to the cinema with my friend on Tuesday evening, to see Steven Spielberg's War Horse. This film is set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War.
Beautifully shot throughout, this really is an epic film, and one that I would have no hesitation in recommending to you. In fact, I would go so far as to say it is a "must see" film. You might also be interested to know that all the scenes shot before the horse goes to war, were filmed on Dartmoor (a National Park), which is only ten minutes away from where I live. I think you will enjoy the scenery! As I was watching the film, I knew that hubby would really appreciate it, so we are going together on Sunday afternoon!
I have to confess that I didn't know just what those poor horses went through during that war. All I will say is, "don't forget to take your tissues along" - well, the ladies anyway!
Shortly before Christmas, my friend Claudia over at The Story held a giveaway, and, guess who won?! I received this lovely pair of ear-rings, so thank you for that Claudia.
Another really delightful bloggy friend of mine is called Jenny, over at kneesandpaws. She has an Etsy shop, and I had seen these delightful little hand made cottages on a recent blog post from Jenny. I thought that they were so cute, that I went right in and placed an order. They arrived yesterday, and they just look so sweet, with the little L.E.D. nightlights inside them. Perfect, in fact, for a night light for a child's room, or just to display on a shelf or window sill. I love them!
I'm going out to lunch with another friend today, so, as you can see, I'm trying to make the miserable month of January as exciting as I can! Oh, and on Saturday evening we are going to friends for a meal. All this food - Eeeek!!
Thank you for all the replies about commenting on blogger at the moment, and for all the suggestions. It seems that quite a few of us have the same problem at the moment :
