17 Again

I have had a real interesting movie experience recently so decided to share my thoughts with you...


A fantastic movie which I really enjoyed! It's got all the ingredients of a great movie and leaves you with a nice warm fuzzy feeling - which I quite like when leaving the cinema hehe. Definitely something I would buy on DVD and watch again. Eric was a bit reluctant to see it as he thought it was another Freaky Friday sort of movie and said that's been overdone now. But after seeing the movie he did agree with me that it was really good and not another "Freaky Friday" movie. The story in a nutshell, "A former high school basketball star gets a second shot at life when he's miraculously transformed into a teenager and offered the opportunity to redefine his future."


Oh my goodness where do I start... mmm... terrible, horrible, bad, please don't go and see this! I am not exaggerating, it was so bad that I walked out of the cinema after 20 minutes. (Yes you can do that, just because you paid for the ticket doesn't mean you're obliged to ingest filth). The story is about a man who is about to get married and needed to find a best man which resulted in a series of "man dates". Sadly even if there was some sort of story line there it is just too loaded with sexual comments and innuendos, and peppered with strong language. I am usually sensitive to this sort of stuff anyway and prefer not to watch movies like this, but this one was way over the top and not even funny!

After this traumatic experience Eric and I chatted about how useful it would be to read movie reviews from a Christian perspective as we do tend to view what's acceptable differently from the world. In the past we used a movie review website called Rotten Tomatoes. Sadly we found that the movies we considered really good had really low ratings and the movies we thought were horrible had high ratings.

Thankfully we came across a brilliant move review website which reviews movies in great detail! Check out The Dove Foundation. If only we read this review before going to the cinema to see I love you, Man! Oh well, at least we can warm you about it. Have a great weekend and take care what movies you watch - remember rubbish in - rubbish out. Leave a comment about these movies or any other movie that you have seen lately.

What movies have you loved or loathed lately, I would like to share some more reviews.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
