"About Time" :)

I'm not going to be a spoiler here however I went to watch 'About Time' this evening, the new Richard Curtis film....and I absolutely loved it!  This has to be one of my favourite British films in recent years. :)

The film is a British Romantic Comedy with a touch of Sci-Fi and it stars Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy. It's a very moving film which reminded me of family life the way I once knew it. 

Incidentally, I thought Domhnall Gleeson sounded just like Hugh Grant!!!

I suggest if you are going to watch the film, then take some tissues with you, you'll need them. 

Family life in general can be wonderful. One minute you're all doing the fun things together and then in an instant it can change just like that!  There may be a death in the family or a divorce in the family and suddenly family life the way you know it becomes completely different. 

Sometimes I look back at old photographs and I wonder if that really was me in a past life? I once had a very perfect family. We had some very beautiful and fun days out together. I remember sitting on a beach once and I was surrounded by some of the folk I loved. I remember thinking how perfect my life was on that day and if I never live to see another perfect day like it, then how grateful I was to be there at that time. 

Many of us take life for granted sometimes, however we should all appreciate the good days and keep them locked away in our memories forever. :)

About time.....Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present. :)
