OH was working in Hong Kong 6 weeks before Smallest Panette was born - felt a bit touch and go there. He'd worked abroad/away ever since we had children, so I coped on my own for weeks at a time often with only a few hours notice.

Yea Pan. It's only 23 years since No1son was born but it feels as old as 'Call the Midwife' these days. Suppose it's just another way that the media machine concentrates on young people. Not that there's anything wrong with that as young people deserve respect and a high profile.

Some settings, even some characters, are resolutely unromantic, but the story of their love touches the heart.
I'm thinking of "The life and death of Colonel Blimp", "The Crying Game", "I know where I'm going", lots of other films I love.
lc Hear, hear.

Yes she was good in Bend it Like Beckham, one of my all time favourite films.
I adore Roman Holiday - so I will go to the pictures with erms.
And like clarrieluv I love Truly Madly Deeply and the fact that Juliet Stevenson (what an actress) didn't have a handy hankie made me cry all the more.
I am a bit of a cry-baby at the pictures.
Probably the only person in the world that still calls the cinema the pictures and even the flicks. Ageing or what? I want to go to the flix with you Lynnie (and if you come to my cinema I'll give you a free ice cream..)
Sense & Sensibility, TMD, Far From the Madding Crowd - love 'em.
But what's this? I scroll down and you don't like Humphrey Bogart, this could be the end of a beautiful friendship.
Just watched The Artist for the third time tonight and stil blubbed

I have a huge problem with "Ghost"....that being that sadly I couldn't abide the late Patrick Swayze. Nice chap I am sure - but he was not my romantic lead type at all.
I am the wrong age for most of the rest and I absolutely never ever want to see "Titanic" because of that bluddy song!
LynnieP x Sorry Lynn, but. 'that bluddy song!' is one of my faves - over 70 million hits on YouTube :¬)

I know I know....but Celine Dione gives me earache. And that song ... sorry to say I have hated it since the minute I heard it. It is just not my scene, man...
Three cheers to that person who said "A Matter of Life and Death"... the original of course.
