Sunday Coffee Share

If we were having coffee today then I would tell you that before Christmas we saw Mary Poppins Returns, and it was such a good film – I would encourage you to go and see it for yourself!

We have since watched The Secret of Mary Poppins on BBC followed by Saving Mr Banks. I now feel like I need to read all the Mary Poppins books!

We also watched the ITV Docudrama about champion ice skaters, Torvill and Dean. It was intense but enjoyable. I remember sitting in front of the TV with my Mum and watching them skate to Bolero at the Olympics.

I like finding out the back story to these things. There were a few tweets complaining about the accents not being authentic, and some of the music not being in sync with history, but hey, it was part fiction, so who cares?

If we talked about Christmas food I would tell you that we bought fresh cranberries from Aldi this year, and that we made our own cranberry sauce – it was delicious!

If you ask me about my plans for 2019, I would tell you that I just want to concentrate on getting my mental health problems sorted.

I’m having a really stressful time with photos right now, so I would be telling you that I have to dash off immediately to finish an important job. I had 5000 or more photos in my Flickr account, and they’ve changed the rules so I can only store 1000 for free. If I don’t start deleting them, Flickr will do the job for me, and I don’t want that. Where’s Mary Poppins when you need her?




I am, have been and will be, different things to different people, but I will always be Marie-Celine.

  1. I was having an inner debate as to whether I wanted to watch the new Mary Poppins or not, but I will give it a go. Will drag Hannah with me, she is on first name terms with the cinema staff by us. She saw BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (why is that in all caps? Weird!) four times! 😁

  2. I really want to go see the new Mary Poppins, I love Emily Blunt and I imagine she played the character really well, although I have seen so many negative reviews on it but sometimes I wish people would stop comparing to old films, it doesn’t mean they’re exact re-makes, they can be different and of course they will seem more modern 🙂
