I can't believe Cara is a one year old. It's just crazy how quick that has all gone. She's changed so much. Look how cute she's got. She's even better in person, just so happy and fun.

I Love you Cara!

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

This evening Andrew and I were able to go and see this film at the Watershed. Thanks to Alex and Tamara who played with Cara. Andrew managed to get us free tickets to the preview.

This is a French, subtitled in English, film, based on the book. I have read the book, and really enjoyed it. The film, although different from the book in many details was amazing. It was filmed really well, the acting was great, and it was very moving.

It is amazing how people react to different situations. This man did so much despite having 'locked-in syndrome' and the people around him that helped him were amazing also. It is interesting how those friends and family around him acted with the situation too. How would I react if this happened to me? or someone I know? or love?

So, it seems that Andrew and I will be going to London again for our Anniversary. I managed to get a room for a £1 in the Hoxton Hotel, and for the following night for £29 pretty good for a 4 star hotel in the middle of London.

I heard about their £1 sales a while ago, but I forgot to even try last time. This time I set a reminder on my phone, and then set everything up so that I could be extra speedy. It took a while, as their servers were busy, but we got it!

Spanglish - Film review

A really great film. Not as funny as I thought it would be, but an interesting look at different families, and the way that different people parent, and are.

The Nativity Story - Film review

I had been wanting to watch this since I saw the trailers for it, and it lived up to my expectations. It was really well made, and made me think about how it may have really been for Mary and Joseph. It was such a touching moment when Jesus was born, and then when the Shepherds and wise men came to show their respects. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone.
