REALLY Relaxing!

We went to the cinema this morning to see this


I was sort of holding out for a trip next week – to see H Ford and D Craig in ‘Cowboys and Aliens’ – but I got the feeling Bob would prefer this one today. He has read all the HP books and seen the films. I should explain, I have only read the first HP book, and that bored me rigid. Recently I have tried to watch the earlier films when they were shown on TV, and still don’t get it [unlike Narnia, and The Rings which I greatly enjoyed]

I am sure that if you like HP, you’ll probably like this one – although Bob did say he did not think it was the best HP film. I was relaxing so hard that just after the beginning I FELL ASLEEP!

I haven’t done that since we went to Revenge Of The Sith in 2005. I woke up to find Emma Watson had turned into Helena Bonham Carter, and was quite confused.

I did like the pattern on Neville Longbottom’s cardigan though. I am not sure you are supposed to go to the cinema to ponder on the merits of Fair Isle Knitwear! I bought some wool on Tuesday and began a new project. I will take photos and share details soon – but right now I am still at the ribbing stage.


  1. I've never been a fan of HP, maybe it's too grown up for me? How lovely that you had a relaxing little nap!

  2. Oooh, I like that sweater, too (I've been in a knitting mood as of late). I've tried to become an HP fan without much luck. I like Mrs. Weasley best--that shows you where my heart is.


  3. Still oping to go- we both loved the books, though Prisoner of Azkaban remains my favourite- want to see the film just to have done that thing- but have found the later films disappointing. Am reading Philosopher's Stone to boys at bedtime, at their request, but don't think it works as a read-aloud. Chapters toooo looong. They'd do better to read them themselves!!! Have also to agree with Frances- Mrs Weasley's house by far the best bit in any of the movies!!

  4. Sorry ladies....but I love the HP books. Not so keen on the movies though!

    Gosh, hasn't 'Neville' grown up!

  5. Ha ha ha! Frances is so funny and YOU are, too. I like Mrs. Weasley best, too! And I have only read the first book and was also bored. I am SO glad that I am not alone. I went to see the film with Bill. I stayed awake. Shocker! He gets miffed when I drop off to sleep so that made me laugh to read that you DID, Angela! Oh, thanks for the chuckle. I'm glad you are relaxing!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
