Keeping everyone entertained over the holidays
How are you all coping with keeping the children happy & entertained during the Easter holidays? It's not always easy is it?....
A couple of days ago a friend of Phoebe's came over to play. After lunch in Pizza Hut we went to the cinema to watch Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. I have seen the first one 2 or 3 times with Miss P. I like the idea of a Nanny McPhee. There have been times when I have thought: "Oh how I could do with a Nanny McPhee right now" but sadly she has never materialised when I have been in need of her...;-))
I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy the second film as much as the first one. Although I still think that I prefer the first one I did enjoy this one very much. What helped is that it's set in the 1940's, one of my favourite decades!
The Mother of the 3 children is called Isobel in the story. As soon as Miss P heard that, she shouted out loud in the cinema "Mummy that's your name!". A few heads turned round, I smiled sheepishly...
As the film progressed, I observed the decor of the interior of the house (ignoring the mess), especially the bathroom, master bedroom & lounge. I confess to missing out of some of the dialogue as I was busy studying the wallpaper, furniture & colour scheme! I loved the interior look of that house, the colour scheme (lots of green) was right up my street.
The clothes that the Mother was wearing were gorgeous! Pretty tea dresses.
If you have have children and haven't seen it yet, I would recommend it!
Apart from that there has been a lot of walking, cycling, playing and housework during this holiday so far. Miss P helped me wash all the downstairs windows inside and out today. She did a great job.
Tomorrow (Sunday 11Th) we will having a day out in Dorset to visit the Dairy House Antiques centre for the Vintage Textiles and Costume Day. There will be a selection of beautiful stalls there, I can't wait!
Have a lovely weekend
