shameless Aussie movie plug

For some reason, this gorgeous song popped into my head.
Could be because I am sitting by the fire, and I have a cold, and I don’t like the things in my head right now.
This was probably a cry for help from my brain…and it reminded me of this post I did last December.
And here’s a confession, I haven’t seen ‘Hidden Figures’ yet. I know, it’s kind of shocking. But do yourself a favour, and listen to the song on here sometime. It makes for a sublime lullaby.
Oh, and see ‘The Dish’. You know, when you feel like it. God knows I hate bossy social media posts. Except when they have great advice (cough).
Speaking of which, Goodnight xo


I was just watching a commercial for a new movie about the first moon landing. I think it’s called, ‘Hidden Figures’, I don’t remember exactly as a few minutes have passed already. But I was immediately reminded of one of my favourite movies, ‘the Dish’…

I strongly recommend you watch it first if you’re considering seeing the new one. Actually, even if you’re not, you should still watch it, because, then you will be an even more well rounded person. I’m kidding. I don’t know what I’m saying. I just like laughing at myself. It’s always funnier in my head. Because obviously…

I am, in no way, influenced by my Australian bias, except that it’s set in Australia with that brand of humour the world has come to know and love, (and when I say world, I obviously mean people like me) plus Patrick Warburton is in it. You would, no doubt, know him from other movies I consider classic like, ‘the Emperor’s New Groove’ and, well, who cares really? That’s obviously enough of a recommendation.

Right now I am actually in the US visiting in-laws, and if you are anywhere like me, where it’s minus one million degrees outside, you might be considering this some of the best advice you have ever received, because it’s obvious you’re wondering what the heck you could do tonight. (I have no clue what you’re wondering, if that isnt obvious) So you’re welcome. 🙂

One of the more impacting scenes is accompanied by this achingly gorgeous piece of music, perfectly and angelically executed by Dawn Upshaw. I understand 2 videos in one post could possibly make your head explode, (I should rightly edit that…when I say your, I mean my, I can be a little impatient…) but I’m kind of hoping your heart will instead…

  1. I’m such a dweeb. Your comment on your latest blog has made me search back on your blog to see if I can find your location? Is it Australia? I was always sure it was USA. Did you marry an American? Lol …but I found this blog on my search and you mention Hidden Figures which was one of my favourite movies this year! I’m assuming you must’ve seen it by now so may agree with me. Absolutely inspiring film.


    1. No you’re not!! i just forget who i tell things to so i assume people know where i’m from and that people can’t hear my accent lol.
      Yes I’m Australian married to an American. We lived in the US for ten years and have been in South Australia for almost 12 years now.


            1. You know, this rings a bell… have we chatted before about this? I’m so sorry, my memory can be terrible.
              I’m impressed by your mother! Mine is 80 and her international travel days are done, but she’s healthy, thank God.
              So i’m guessing they like WA if they’ve been there 20 years?!


              1. They became Aussie citizens as soon as they could. They went there with no intention of returning so I was never surprised by that. Moving all that way on a whim is not in either of their natures. I’m not sure if you and I have chatted about this but I will have written about it before. 😊
