Thank You To My Followers

Hi all. Hope your week has been going well, and that you have a relaxing/fun weekend waiting for you.

I just wanted to say a big thank you today to all of my followers.

When I started this blog back in February, I never for one moment expected to get many(if indeed, any)followers; I was just happy to be here writing about films, and hoping that at least one other person might read what I’ve written and share my love of classic cinema.

Now, just a few weeks later, I  have several followers, have taken part in my first blogathon, and I am feeling much more confident about blogging in general. So, whether you follow me from another blog or you follow via email, I just want you to know how much your support, comments and likes are meaning to me. I’ve met some lovely people and am enjoying so many fun and interesting conversations.

I want to give a special mention to Patricia, over at CaftanWoman. Thank you for encouraging me to give blogging a go in the first place and for offering me so much advice/help. It is very much appreciated. Not familiar with her blog? Be sure to stop by and check it out for some terrific reviews and comments.

I’d like to give a special mention to some other bloggers who I’m really chuffed to have come across for various reasons. Not familiar with them? Get yourselves clicking on the links to their sites and see what they’re all about.

Brian, over at Bonnywood Manor is your go to chap for classic film related satire. He knows how to make you giggle. Keep those laughs coming.

Charlene, over at Charlene’s (Mostly)Classic Film Reviews has a love for classic cinema from around the world. Be sure to stop by and check out her comments and feelings about various classics. I was delighted to run into Charlene, as she shares my love for classic era Japanese cinema.

Theresa, over at cinemavensessaysfromthecouch is passionate about the classics, and it really shows in her character and performance focused posts. Classic fans will surely envy her when they learn she met Kirk Douglas, Robert Osborne, and appeared on the TCM channel in America.

Fritzi, over at MoviesSilently  is your go to gal for all things to do with Silent cinema. I will be forever grateful to her for introducing me to some Silent films and stars that I had never heard of.

Ruth, over at SilverScreenings is not only passionate about the classics, but has one of the most lovely looking blogs I’ve come across. I really like the layout and look. Get over to her blog for interesting discussions and posts.

Many thanks once again to you all. I appreciate you stopping by and reading, and replying to my posts.

Spring Has Arrived

I came home from work this afternoon to a lovely sight, a perfect spring day had arrived in my garden.


The sun was out, it was feeling quite warm, the flowers were blooming, and a very fluffy robin was enjoying a bath(and causing quite a bit of a mess, splashing water everywhere.)


Following the horror of this Wednesday, this beautiful sight raised my spirits quite a bit. It was a perfect moment of beauty and peace.


I love this time of year. Everything looks fresh and bright, cute baby animals pop up all over the place, and we see some life continuing around us unblighted by the horrible things we as people can do to one another.

Just wanted to share these spring day pics and say how much this time of year cheers me up.

Welcome to Spring.
