We're watching "It's a Wonderful Life" right now. It's DH's favorite Christmas movie.

Watched, The Family, tonight with Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer, excellent with just the right amount of comedy to action to storyline. We loved it!

Watched "The World's End" with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. While I like most of their movies ("Hot Fuzz", "Paul"), I found this one to be just so-so.

Yes, "The World's End", I had to keep waking Shrek up to watch it as it was one he wanted to see.

"Holiday Inn" - again!

Television is kaput so had to put the DVD into my laptop. I think I like doing it like this. I can take the laptop into the kitchen and watch there.

Tonight I think it will be "The Road to Bali" - I'm not really obsessed with Bing Crosby. I just like old films.

Now I've discovered how to watch Downton Abbey's Christmas special when I get back from my aunt's on Thursday I may not bother replacing the television.

Have you bought yourself a Christmas present and Satnav Adventures

Last year I used my accumulated discount points from shopping on-line to buy myself a satnav for Christmas. A mixed blessing. I don't entirely trust it as it has led me in some very odd directions so I always use it side by side with a map!

For some reason it can't cope with Derbyshire (the next county to where I live) and tries to take me on some very strange wild goose chases. Last summer when I was on my way back from Yeovil in Somerset it behaved perfectly until I was about 12 miles from home on a route I could drive in my sleep. It told me to turn left. No, I thought, "I don't need to do that" but for the entertainment value I thought I'd do as it said.

It took me into the railway station car park! Was it making a point about my driving?

This year's my present to me is a new coffee filter machine with a bean grinding attachment. My old Moulinex coffee machine disappeared when I moved house. It was old but efficient and I loved it but I think it may have got into the wrong box and been taken to the charity shop. (Sniff!) I don't actually need a coffee machine as I use a cafetiere jug when there's just me but the machine is good when I have guests.

Yeah, I had a hard time getting into it. I don't mind movies that have a stupid premise (as this one does) but you also have to like the characters enough to care. I didn't find that to be the case.

Our daughter recently bought"Despicable Me" so the four of us did Family Movie Night on Christmas. The movie was good but I liked that the four of us were together even better! ♡ But after seeing the movie I want Minions even more!
