One Day

Just had a bonding session with my sister and mother at the cinema. This is something that only happens about once every three years, mainly due the fact that my sister does not reside in Northern Ireland and my mother normally has the title of chief babysitter. 

One Day, was the film of choice this evening, well Bridesmaids didn't begin until 9pm and we reckoned at least two of us could be anticipating our Ovaltine by that stage.
My husband purchased the book a few years ago and couldn't get into it to which I have to admit is unusual for him
So what did us girls think? 

Mother didn't feel the chemistry between the two main characters.

 My sister was even less impressed but at the same time strangely entertained as she apparently spent her time during the film spotting continuity errors. Earrings on, earrings off, satellite dishes appearing where they shouldn't have been and apparently even a scene where someone is in the wrong side of the bed. Good god was she taking notes?

 Personally I enjoyed this love story. Okay the David Williams character was a bit annoying. If you go, you will know exactly what I mean. I also wonder why every house the main character lived in appeared to be in desperate need of the DIY SOS crew but then I am used to nothing but films these days containing animated animals and hey no one was nagging me to take them to the toilet half way through, so what do I know? 


  1. Your observant sister here. Mum has since Informed me she didn't like to ask you to take her to the toilet.

  2. Continuity errors in films - your sister and I should be friends.
