One foot in front of the other ...

Today is one of those days ..... one foot in front of the other.  I'm having one of those days when I feel Blah.  Blah is the only word I can think of to describe today.  

Does anyone else have those days?  I'm guessing I'm not the only one.  When I feel like this I try to think about tomorrow and hope for a better day.  

I keep thinking writing a blog is supposed to be about positive things and for the most part it is ... but not today.   

I've been sitting watching movies all day because I don't feel like doing anything else.

First I watched Funny Face ... an oldie, but a goodie, with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire .... Audrey Hepburn is beauty personified.  

Then I watched Stepmom with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon in it .... great movie .... love the part in the movie when Julia and Susan's characters are talking, over dinner in a restaurant.  Julia Roberts, the Stepmom to be, (for those of you who haven't seen the movie is dying of cancer), says to Susan Surandan's character, the mother, about her daughter ....   

"Look down the road to her wedding. I’m in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful."
"And my fear is she’ll think, “I wish my mom were here.”

Then Susan Sarandon says ....

"And my fear is, she won't." 

Those lines just make me cry every time.  It seems like it's the point where they finally realise that they can parent the children and both be part of their lives. 

Next I watched the Holiday .... well half watched it .... and fell asleep.  I did end up watching the rest when I woke up.  I do love this movie however, I would watch it again and again just to see Jude Law.  He's very cute and nice to look at.  Actually not a bad actor either, but that's beside the point.

And this little cottage in the Cottswalds, England, was just so very pretty.

Not sure if I should feel guilty for spending the whole day watching films or not, but nevertheless that's what I've been doing.  And actually now that I've written about it, I don't feel so guilty after all ..... and now I'm off to bed ..... oops just had a phone call on the a/hours phone and now I have to cover a shift at 7.30am in the morning.

Of those movies Funny Face is the only one I've seen. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Fred Astaire fan! He's my favourite!

I hope today is a better day for you! Sometimes you just need blah days - I'm convinced they help you recharge on some level. I love a good day on the couch (it's something I miss). My go to movie is Steel Magnolias - makes me cry every time and I could watch it back to back I just love it so.
