I watched the movie 'the Help' to fill in some time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Down side was that at the end my weepiness made my nose run which was not pleasant. I thought the performances were all really good and loved Celia & Hillys' mother as much as the 'help'. I hope to read the book soon, I've heard that it is a very good read also. Fittingly I watched 'Guess who's coming to dinner' the same day. I had my fill of civil rights and wondered how I would have felt living at that time.
I was also entertained by the Oscar presentation. I love the fashions and the frocks and thought they all looked fabulous. All except Melissa McCarthy and Meryl Streep, not my favourites at all.

This was my favourite, but it was hard to choose just one.

 I have a list of movies that I want to see including

with my boyfriend Ewen McGregor.

Erin and I popped into the library so I could swap over some books. I have started Jodi Picoults' 19 minutes and have absolutely devoured it.  I'm up to page 312 of 588 and will back into it any minute now. Its one of those books that is hard to put down to do the necessary things like cook a meal, sleep etc.


  1. Olivia took the book of "The Help" away with her. I don't know if she has read it yet, but if she has I will borrow it for you Saturday week. (Not that I'm counting or anything!) Louise

  2. I posted her gift, hopefully she will get it on Friday and that it will cheer her up a little
