Well – it’s my birthday. Not something I particularly would wish to advertise – but in this social networking age – and given my age is out there – am not able to hide the dreadful truth.
Forgot when I signed into facebook this morning – only to be greeted by loads of ‘happy birthday’ messages – which was really nice. Thank you everybody! I had just finished an hour of ironing (which I do every Sunday whilst watching Andy Marr) and was (and am still) waiting for my two daughters to arise and wish me Happy Birthday.
So – as I just hear now footsteps coming downstairs – I must go. Today I am not going to work – but am going out to lunch followed by a movie – St Trinian’s. I know – extremely lightweight – but it’s Christmas and I want to laugh and eat popcorn.
Then it will be tidy the house, write out the food shopping lists for Xmas key three days, more ironing and watch Christmas movies. My favourites are: Miracle on 34th Street (both versions), Scrooged, Love Actually, Prancer, It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone (shame on me) and several others.
If anyone has any really great Christmas films that they can recommend – please do. I like ones that make me cry (with happiness) when it all comes right at the end!
