Its not all about crafting.
So Christmas came and went with a full house, full tummies and too many Lunam’s (My family name) in one place due to a family reunion. We drank, we ate, we laughed and we opened presents 🙂 Santa was a kind and generous man this year
Yep, even though they are adults my kids still all get Christmas stockings. I’m such a sap lol So one of my darlings made me one this year which was epically awesome 😀
Breakfast was the usual influx of people in search of their presents vying with rumbly tummies. Mum bought over wine with gold in it and kept making inappropriate references to bodily functions, sieves and inheritance which even caused the cat to go ewww and hide under the table
That’s my seat he’s hiding under hoping to be saved from inappropriate breakfast conversation . . . or ham . . . probably ham
So after we got Christmas out of the way I put the tree away so that Natalie could continue to eat without having to sit in the middle of it. This was the day after boxing day and we were all knackered. Its been a very busy few months in the Semmens house. And it rained. Just a little but enough for us to not leave the lounge for a couple of days. This lead to many movies and some were even to educate the kids
So the general consensus on the above is as follows:
Suicide Squad (2016): It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Pretty much shit apart from the opening scene
London Has Fallen (2016): After the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances, all leaders of the Western world must attend his funeral. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The President of the United States, his formidable secret service head and a British MI-6 agent who trusts no one are the only people that have any hope of stopping it. Written by Anonymous
Never going to be a classic but a good watch
Shutter Island (2010): It’s 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He’s been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn’t been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy’s shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals “escape” in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything – his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Good premise, shit movie
The Fear of 13 (2015): A convicted murderer who has spent 23 years on Death Row tells his story.
LOVED THIS!!!!! Seriously, its a watcher. Nick Yarris is a magical story teller and you just kept watching. Every time someone came in a talked (I was watching by myself) I had to rewind to hear what he had said. This would be my surprise favourite.
So after all that I went shopping with a voucher and bought we a present 🙂
