Flowers And Movies

I’ve watched an interesting variety of movies over the last week (you can watch the trailers if you click on the movie title) and I’m surprised that the ones I would recommend were the horror and French films.  I loved watching the mother and daughter roles played out wonderfully by Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche in The…

The Week In Seven Photos

My love of photography, cinema and peaceful walks were brought together this week when I had the chance to wander through a few of the 20 beautiful gardens that surround the Cranbrook House, capture photos using the cinematic feature on the Hipstamatic app and later in the day enjoy another “horticultural escape” through the beautiful…

You know you have been in the house too long when you’ve driven the dog to a breakdown and you find yourself walking through the house chanting to yourself “who you gonna call, Ghostbusters!”  I’m not exactly sure what has occurred over these last two weeks, although I believe it began when I had to…
