Slowing down the world

Slowing down the world

We've all had that feeling, haven't we - stop the world, I want to get off! For me, these few days between Christmas and New Year are just that. It doesn't exactly stop, but it slows down - not as much as it used to before emails and internet - but enough to let you catch your breath, reflect on the holiday just gone and plan for the year to come.

Last night was a perfect example of that for me. My husband had a friend over so that they could sample each others' Christmas whiskies so big daughter and I took the opportunity to watch a girls' film together (as opposed to a boys' film which usually involves aliens, espionage, shooting and lots of fast-paced, edge-of-the-seat action). We watched Sliding Doors, a film I remember going to the pictures to see when it came out (in 1998, doesn't time fly!) and knew that big daughter would really enjoy. A glass of wine, a roaring fire, a box of chocolates, a good film and a daughter to share it with - perfect! Oh, and something woolly, of course!
