Once a week me and DD3 and whichever other daughters are around sit down together to watch a film. We might have recorded something or we might get a film from the DVD shop. We make ourselves a huge bowl of popcorn, delicious with a bit of melted butter mixed in and some salt, and if I have any in the fridge I will treat myself to a cold glass of white wine. We might do ourselves a manicure whilst we watch. It costs hardly anything and is fun!
It’s nice to have a bit of girlie time, as I am always so busy with work, the house and the garden. Making a regular slot to do this means we are guaranteed a bit of quality time and assuages the guilt I have about working full time and leaving DD3 particularly to sort the tea or wash up (although I think it is good for my kids to be capable and independant too).
Last night we watched the Devil Wears Prada – an oldie but goodie. Meryl Streep is brilliant in everything she does and it is really a clever and stylish film. It’s not always easy to find films we all like! We have watched some stinkers!
If anyone has any suggestions for good films that are likely to appeal to both a 50 year old and a 16 year old they would be welcome 🙂
