353 of 365


19th December: It was the first 'proper' day of The Children's school holidays (we don't count the weekend as they'd be off school then anyway!) In the morning we went to the nearest town so they could do a bit of Christmas shopping of their own, we had lunch out, and then in the afternoon we watched The Voyage of the Dawn Treader together. (I found it a bit disappointing to be honest - as I've said before, I like a film of a book to BE the book, with a few adjustments made to tell the story well on screen. I don't like it when big changes are made or new plot strands are added in. I immediately began re-reading the Narnia series to remind myself of how it should have gone...)

Detail: shopping

I've enjoyed so many posts on a catch up here that I have a record number of windows open I've just noticed! I loved that pile of shiny new books especially. Always a treat at any time of year, but especially nice at Christmas!

I hope you are all having a wonderful time

Wow, that looks like a glorious building! And there's nothing like a little holiday space for a nostalgic encounter with some old favourites ...

I've not watched this new series, the BBC dramatisation was the last I remember. The radio plays and audio books are a favourite as you can imagine just like reading.

I haven't seen 'Dawn Treader', but I agree with you - I am usually disappointed by the film of a book. Not so with the TV Great Expectations this Xmas though, which I thoroughly enjoyed

Oh I am so with you on movies not sticking to the book. Happy New Year.
