Thanks Carrie ;o)

 On Tuesday, Carrie posted about her 10 recommendations on Netflix and asked if we had Netflix.  Well, I'm the first to admit that I'm not up to date with all the latest things so I went and asked Hugh if he knew.  Turns out Netflix has recently become available in the UK and Hugh had just signed up and thought it was great.

Yesterday Hugh signed me up to Netflix. He signed up through his Xbox so he can watch the films/programmes on his TV and he signed us up through the Wii so we can watch on our TV. It can also be watched on iPad, iPhone, I would imagine iPod Touch and your computer. Am I impressed? Very!! You have a great selection to choose from and the streaming is fantastic, no delays!  At the moment we've signed up for a month's free trial but if we decide to stay with Netflix it's a really reasonable monthly fee.  Have a look and see for yourself.

I really enjoy a feel good movie and last night I watched "A lot like love", I didn't know what to expect but I really enjoyed it. It made me laugh in a couple of places and at the end of the movie I was in a happy place ;o)  

Thanks for telling us about Netflix, Carrie. Anyone else going to try Netflix?


11 : 365(+1)

As the 11th was a Wednesday and I have Alice (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) there was a good chance my photo for the day would have Alice in it! ;o) 

While eating her lunch today we were counting the number of items of food on her plate.  She loves it on Show Me, Show Me (a TV programme on CBeebies) when the lift goes up the 10 floors and they count from 1 - 10.  So we've started counting little things and today it happened to be some Skips (crisps {English} chips {American/South African}) she was having.  She already counts one, two and I was carrying on, three, four!  I thought it sounded like she was trying to copy me but at this stage it's not clear talking, we just tend to know what she's saying.  However, when Emily got home from school she also though Alice counted one, two, three!  We may be making progress :o) 

I feel so blessed to be able to spend as much time as I do with Alice. I know there are many Grandparents who would love to be able to spend more time with their grandchildren and I/we are so lucky to have the opportunity to do just that.
