Films I'm very Excited to Watch in the Next Few Months (and why you should be too)

 If you didn't know this about me, I LOVE the cinema! I go pretty often, and film premiers feature heavily in my planners! So after lockdowns, the cinema industry is struggling to get back on its feet. Cineworld is even teetering on bankruptcy. As an unlimited card holder, this is such sad news, and I hope they can pull through. However, it is not all bad news as the film industry has some corkers coming up! 

After the D23 Expo, there are a lot of good films coming out of the Disney/Pixar studio. I will not be listing them here, but I've popped a link you can visit to see. I'm incredibly excited about The Little Mermaid coming out in the Spring (2023). 

Talking about Disney magic, This next film has been 30 years in the making. I'm excited to kick off Halloween 2022 with Hocus Pocus 2! It's being premiered on Disney+ on September 30, 2022. I'm away for work but I will be catching up with my hubby when I get back. I'm scared of the Sanderson sisters 🤣. There is no way I will be watching this on my own. Isn't that the funniest thing? 

This next film is already out everywhere but the Isle of Wight for some reason. The way my heart soared when I saw the trailer a few months back! A black Byronic Hero! Where are my smelling salts?! Mr Malcom's List has a Jane Austen vibe. I'm so excited to see this. As a huge fan of period dramas, historically, I have not seen myself reflected in the characters. Sure, Lizzy is witty, bookish and outspoken like I am, but does she struggle with her 4C hair every day? Anyway, I'm glad to see more diversity in this genre.  

Ticket to Paradise is next on my list. Starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney, this hilarious romantic comedy is exactly what we need to end the Summer. It's realised on the 20th of September, 2022. A divorced couple has to form an alliance in order to stop their daughter's ill thought through marriage. Through a few high jinks events, they realise that family is more important than being right. a classic feel-good movie.  

The Last two Films I'm excited about have a sense of Royalty about them.  The first is The Woman King starring Viola Davis ( Who I happen to be watching currently as Michelle Obama in THe First Lady, Streaming on Paramount+), playing the general of the Agojie and all-woman unit from the Kingdom of Dahomey back in the 1800s. This is based on a true story - I love history, so this, plus the female empowerment storyline, makes this a must-watch for me. 

 My last film follows the same lines, except it's a classic British film. British filmmakers know how to tell stories about regular everyday people in a very comforting way. The Lost King is the true story of how Phillipa Langley, an amateur historian, found the remains of Richard the 3rd that was previously lost for half a millennia. She heard lots of "Nos" and "You Can'ts", but she persisted. It's out on the first week of October, a perfect way to get stuck into the joys of Autumn.  
So that's it! I hope you found a film you can look forward to! If not, there's always British Bake -Off & Strictly - Both guaranteed to warm your cockles through the next few months! 

Stay Cozy!

What to put in your Hospital Bag for a Mastectomy

I have scrawled across the internet , read lots of blogs and watched lots of videos. Most of which were of an American slant. I have come to the conclusion that the American hospital system is very different to our good old NHS. I asked lots of people who have been through this too. I also used information from the booklet entitled "Planned Admissions" which I was given when I went in for my Wide Excision back in March.  Putting all the above to use, here is what I have packed in my hospital bag . Most British hospitals do not have vast amount of space so you are advised to bring a soft bag not a suitcase. I chose my favourite Cath Kidston X Disney Peter Pan Tote. It's not a big bag either.

IRL: Crafty Catch Up 2017

Well what can I say? My first ever planner meet up was all I thought it would be! I had an absolute ball. I had wanted to come to the last one but being an islander meant it was just too far for me to consider however things changed when this date was announced. 22nd July was only a few days away from our wedding anniversary. We'd planned to spend it at Disneyland Paris so it made perfect sense to do the crafty catch up on the Saturday, and then continue on to France the following day. Serendipity. What I didn't account for was the mania that it would entail. Kids breaking off for summer Friday afternoon, finishing packing, cleaning the house etc , getting the 7am ferry, driving to Kent, etc on the Saturday. As I arrived, I saw the beautifully laid out Lydd Community Hall. In the hallway was the table plan, I was on table 3... I met great people! I was reminded that all kinds of people love crafts, I was inspired by their creativity Specifically the mummy/daugh
