Seasons greetings

I've been lax, I've sidetracked my blog and tried not to feel bad about it. But I've always believed that if something is worth doing, it's worth doing well. And I've always tried to keep my blog on a level that has been interesting, at least to me. This month has been a complicated one and unfortunately my mood and the weather have seldom coincided. I didn't feel that doing half-hearted posts was worthy of my blog or of any of the potential nomads out there that drop by and so I decided to have a break, get the enthusiasm back, wait for the spark to ignite once more. I'm getting there!

But the time is upon us once again to celebrate, to wish good cheer and goodwill to one and all. To raise a glass and toast the good things in life, to let peace reign for one short moment.


And so I wish you all the very best for Christmas, for the festive season, and hope that all your dreams come true in  2012 (I didn't win the lottery this year so there's always hope for next year!!).

Hasta pronto!

Something to think about....

 separate you from the destination;
it is essentially a part of it.'-

Wherever you are and whatever you're doing this weekend, have a great time and enjoy!

Hasta pronto!

Breaking Dawn: Part I

Yesterday I went to see the latest film in the Twilight Saga, 'Breaking Dawn: Part I'.

I have to say that I'm a complete sucker for this franchise! I've read the books and enjoyed them, it's not Shakespeare but then I knew that before I read them. I found them entertaining and sometimes that's all I'm looking for.

The films have followed the same line. They are fairly true to the books and the characters are easily likeable. Ok, and the male roles (and the ladies for that matter) are very easy on the eye!

This film was a good adaptation of the book and totally different in feel and atmosphere from the previous ones. The material is more serious and I think that it was well interpreted.

What can I say? I enjoyed the film! If you're a fan of the Twilight series then I'm sure that you'll enjoy it too. I also think that where it ended was just right, the first part of the story was dealt with and completed but there's still a lot to come and where it left off leaves the story at the right point.

Now all we have to do is wait a YEAR for the next, and final, part. Looking forward to it already!

Hasta pronto!
