February was dreadful, 3/4 of us got Flu and then I had Laryngitis. Spent a lot of the month sulking and not really watching new things. We are still watching West Wing, so I’m not going to feature that really as it’s ongoing. Here’s the rest though.
Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
I’m listening to this on Audible right now, it’s a fab book and very motivational in my sad little life right now. I like her speaking style and need this kind of pep talk while I’m sorting washing! She is very honest about her own journey and experiences, this isn’t a guide from a person who always had it all figured out. Link to Amazon and Audible
The Dry by Jane Harper

Three Identical Strangers
Fascinating documentary, just unbelievable. 3 triplets separated at birth, the families were never told. This is the story of them reuniting by chance, and then their quest for the truth of how they came to be split. If you didn’t catch this, you really must see it. Still on All4
Channel 4, you are too good to us people at home in the day, 3 episodes a day of Frasier! I just love it so much, I’m even in a group on Facebook of Frasier Fans! Yes, I need to get a life. Available on Amazon, or every morning on Channel 4!
Such a sweet film! We decided to watch it on date night, just loved it, really funny and so warm. It really is great to see a film that brings LGBT+ relationships front and centre. Reminded me a lot of A Beautiful Thing, which I recommend you watch if you haven’t already! We watched it on NowTV
Adam had been recommending this for a long while, so we finally settled down to see it. Loved it, so compelling, although not cheerful particularly so don’t expect to come away uplifted! It’s about the rivalry between 2 magicians, and who is going to have the last word. It is so well done, and the end will have you thinking about everything in the whole movie for days afterwards. Great performances from everyone involved, and everyone includes David Bowie as Tesla (which is an amazing bonus I’m sure we all agree). We watched on NowTV
The Lego Movie 2
Took kids to see this over half term as big mob with some friends, had a fab time! Loved the first one, and this is pretty much the same fun humour, but about the relationship between siblings rather than with parents (although Maya Rudolph does make excellent mom figure in it). Very interesting to see this sibling dynamic playing out, live a lot of that in our own house, especially as our age gap is 9 vs 5, that can feel just too big at times. And… this song’s gonna stuck inside your heeaaaaaddddd…
Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner Movie
Just the best, most magnificent, extraordinary collection of cartoons ever put together. I used to watch this on repeat as a kid as my clever parents had videoed it for me off the telly. It’s got Marvin the Martian, Duck Dodgers, Bugs Bunny bullfighting, Elmer Fudd (duck season! rabbit season!), Wile E Coyote, Pepe Le Pew, Leopold and of course What’s Opera Doc? – voted the best cartoon of all time. You can watch it here for free, so go do that, now now now!
Penguin Cafe Orchestra
I’ve always been very fond of Penguin Cafe Orchestra, my dad had a cassette of them that I used to play on my old walkman. Remember quite fondly a wet week in
So that was February. I don’t know how different March is going to look right now, I tend to fall in a rut and watch old stuff, especially when I feel a bit down and
