What We’ve Been Watching is a monthly feature where we talk about everything we’ve been watching over the past month.

10 Films I’m Looking Forward To in 2019

If you are a regular reader you might have seen our monthly ‘What We’ve Been Watching‘ feature where we talk about everything and anything that we watch in that month. Something we haven’t done much of in the last year though is to watch films. I only went to the cinema once last year (actually in the last 3 years) and it was only because we got a deal for Now TV on Black Friday that we watched a lot more towards the end of the year. However, there are still plenty of films I’m looking forward to in 2019.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day As A Family

Up until recently John and I have never been in a situation where we could go out together on our own without Erin. We don’t speak to the majority of John’s family and my family don’t live near us at all. Fortunately, my sister is living with us at the moment so we have had a bit more opportunity to have some time to ourselves. However, Valentine’s Day is not a thing for a husband and wife alone in our house but it’s a family affair. If you’re quite similar to us then there are plenty of ways that you

5 Favourite Films To Watch This Valentine’s Day

Now, if you’re spending Valentine’s Day with a loved one this year then a great way to do this is to curl up and watch a movie together. Traditionally these should be romantic films but they don’t really have to be if you don’t want them to be. I’m sure me and John have watched horror films in past years. Still, with romance in the air, here are 5 of my favourite films to watch this Valentine’s Day. Pretty Woman I think this was probably one of the first real films that I remember watching. It was certainly the first

You Know Christmas Is Coming When…

Christmas may be on the same date every year but somehow, it seems to come sooner each year as well. I remember when shops wouldn’t dare to have Christmas cards and wrapping paper before December. I remember when it might as well have been a crime to play Christmas music before 1st December. Does anyone else remember this? This year I saw Christmas cards in shops at the end of October! We hadn’t even gotten Halloween out of the way yet. It used to be that you knew Christmas was on it’s way when the Coca Cola advert came on

Here are three classic kids movies with life-changing messages that you should show to your child immediately if you haven’t already.

What We’ve Been Watching: September

Welcome to What We’ve Been Watching! Here I talk about anything on TV, Netflix or films that we have been watching for the past month! Once again, September has been a really busy month. John has been away for work, we went to London for a few days and I also went to Manchester for Blog On! John also managed to break his wrist and we’ve both been exhausted. Some nights I haven’t had the TV on and instead sat at my desk trying to get on with some work. Great British Bake Off This month the GBBO came back
