My darlings after a weeklong intermission, I am back.
I was in desperate need of some Me time ...pampering and relaxing.
My TV and laptop stayed switched off for the entire week.
Instead I buried my nose in my books, drooled over my catalogues, listened to my favourite music, took little naps, ate and ate!!
Had a lovely lunch, couple of glasses of bubbly, and tea-licious desserts. After lunch we went and saw Alice in Wonderland.
Here is my review… The first half starts off virtually magical. A well re-told grown up version of the tale complete with tiny doors, rabbits and waistcoats...a more Walt Disney version rather than Tim Burton. Sadly, the second half took a dive into the rabbit hole. It was much darker and perhaps closer to Lewis Carroll’s orignal tale rather than Disney’s sweet, slightly saccharine place where people sing and say silly things. In my opinion the second half lacked the necessary magic to generate any narrative excitement. I am a huge fan of Johnny Depp, hence the reason I sat through the entire film. However, this movie was a complete letdown for my taste.
I realise I have a lot to catch up with …my emails and comments and of course your blog posts. I will hopefully get to them in a day or so. Pampering days were delightful; however, I must admit it is good to be back to some kind of routine again. My darlings, enjoy your Sunday, and keep your kettles whistling, I just might stop by for a cuppa.
