Les Miserables: The Movie!

So last week I was very very excited because, Les miserables the movie came out in the UK! Yippee! My dad and I went to see it and wow, I was absolutely blown away. I don't want to ruin it for people who havnt seen it, but I will say Anne Hathaway is amazing as Fontine, and the acting and music is just beautiful. Samantha Barks as Eponine (On my owwwn...) is wonderful too. Go and see this film because the story is rich and intense, mixing love, death, hate, religion, politics and every part of human life. Its a very different experience from the stage show but I loved it all the same.

Here are some photos from the movie to wet your appetite and if you have seen it what did you think???

On an English snowy day....

(image: BBC)  (Snow in Greenwich, London)


Today, in England and much of the UK, we have lots and lots of snow! It is absolutely beautiful and makes the world look like a postcard. 

Our neighbours built such a cute snowman with a scarf, it looks like the one from the John Lewis Christmas Advert:

So while I sit here on this beautiful white morning I am thinking and hoping for a lovely day. Apparently today is meant to be the most 'depressing day' of the year. To counter this, I am going to try and have a really positive day! Hope you all have a lovely Monday wherever in the world you are.

A love letter- Rosa Luxemburg, an extract..

Over the past few weeks I have been reading the book 'Love Letters of Great Women' by Ursula Doyle. Its a book of love letters written by famous women to their lovers and is really uniquely beautiful. 

Part of a letter sent by Rosa Luxemburg (political activist) to Leo Jogiches in March 1899, I found very lovely and something that a lot of us women and maybe men could connect it is...(after the image)

''You have no idea with what joy and desire I wait for every letter from you because each one brings me so much strength and happiness and encourages me to live....
I was happiest of all with that part of your letter where you write that we are both young and can still arrange our personal life. Oh darling, how I long that you may fulfil your promise....

Our own little room, our furniture, a library of our own, quiet and regular work, walks together, an opera from time to time, a small- very small- circle of intimate friends who can sometimes be asked to dinner, every year a summer departure to the country for a month.. and perhaps even.. a baby?......

No couple on earth has so many facilities for happiness as you and I and if there is only some goodwill on our part, we will be, must be, happy.''

Oh for the hopeless romantics of this world :) I hope you like the extract x
