Date Night

One of my wishes for 2011 is to spend some more quality time with AJ. Just the two of us. My wish is that we make time together - away from our house- and to enjoy ourselves doing something different from the norm. Hence "Date Night".

This afternoon (well being as it is a Bank Holiday in the UK), we decided to go on our date and visit the local cinema. We went to see Little Fockers - the third in the Meet the Parents franchise. I have heard a few negative reviews of this movie, but I'm very much of the ilk that you make your own opinion on such matters. Although not as good as the two previous films, AJ and I enjoyed the movie. I think Robert De Niro is just fab as Jack Byrnes and Dustin Hoffman makes me laugh too.

We decided to have something to eat after the cinema whilst we were in town also, so we had a nice meal in the local Wetherspoons, and now we are at home, snug and warm for the rest of the evening. I taped Miss Marple from last night, so we will cuddle up on the sofa and enjoy our last night before we return to work after the holidays.

I'm hoping that we at least make time to go on a date night once a month. It may be the cinema again, which I don't mind as we haven't been for such a long time and I really did use to love movies and there looks to be a few good movies coming up in the next few months or so.

Good Evening from Pickle Land
Hope to speak to you soon

  1. That's a great idea :-) It's so important to set aside quality time with each other, it's something we want to commit to more, too. We enjoyed a takeaway together tonight, which was lovely, but it's good to get out of the house together!

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
