Movie Weekend

Saving-Mr-Banks-Movie-PosterHad the whole weekend off and now it's already Sunday evening again. How does that happen? I guess I was in need of a pretty low key weekend after working two 6-day weeks in a row. Had a very busy week this week as well catching up with everything holiday related at work. Our incoming phone calls were through the roof with all the schools plus other businesses arranging for off day deliveries due to the holidays. Busy, busy.

Saturday we slept in a little bit and then went to see "Anchorman" at the movies. Such a crazy promoted sequel so the expectations were definitely high. I thought some parts of the movie were pretty much out there but all in all I didn't dislike the movie. 

Today we went to see "Saving Mr. Banks", quite the opposite of a movie. I really enjoyed it. I have always been a fan of Mary Poppins, watching it over and over growing up. It was interesting to see some of the back story and I thought Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson played their characters very well. Definitely enjoyed the movie.

Right now we are in Fairfield at Flipside. Fun place. Still need to go grocery shopping on our way home. Then tomorrow it's already Monday again and back to work. Monday will be a busy day I am sure. Tuesday is Christmas Eve so I will try to get my staff out by 2pm if we can manage. Wednesday we have off and Thursday it's back to work.

The following week we are heading up to Cape Cod for New Year's which should be nice. Staying at the same bed and breakfast we stayed at last year. Looking forward to it.

Mail Update: Received a letter/owe a reply to: Lotte/Denmark, Caroline/Scotland and Charles/TN.

I may actually go see Mr. Banks in the theatre because I have heard such good things about it. Have a Merry Christmas, Hanna! Your letter is on it's way.
