Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
I keep saying this and I’ll say it some more. April went by soooooooooooooooo fast. That last week of April I managed to finish three books and I am really happy with myself.
But apart from that I have been watching a lot of films. Especially on Disney+.
They’re the sort of films that I used to have on video (VHS) when I was younger but haven’t watched in years because I never bought them on DVD. And I found them on Disney+.
I think I may have squealed like a little girl when I saw that Three Men and a Baby was on there. I haven’t watched that film in so long and it was so good to find it and watched it again. I also found that the sequel is on there as well, Three Men and a Little Lady, and I can’t wait to watch that next.
I also found Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit on Disney and I watched them back to back.
Who doesn’t love a good film marathon?
I suspect most of you, even if you haven’t watched Sister Act 1 or 2 (why on earth haven’t you?), you’ve at least heard of the films, but I doubt many of you will have watched, or heard of, Three Men and a Baby. Your parents may know it. It was made in the late 80s and it’s about three men, bachelors, who all live together and have reasonably successful careers and a revolving door of women in their lives.
One day one of them comes home to find a baby left on their doorstep. It belongs to Jack, who happens to be out of the country, and the mother said she’s had enough of looking after her. She needs a break. These men know nothing about having a baby but they learn quickly. The film follows their antics with their baby and a few other adventures.
As an adult, looking at the film through my adult eyes, I don’t love the way it portrays women, but I do love watching three men trying to work out how to look after a baby. That is hilarious.
On a side note, for any friends fans … the film stars Tom Selleck of Friends fame.
I have also started watching Never Have I Ever on Netflix. As I’m writing this I haven’t finished the first series but I expect that I will have by the time that this has gone up. I’ll talk all about it next week. So far I’m not sure what to think of it. I’m loving the … I’m honestly not sure what the right word to use … minority of it all. So many different faiths, ethnicities, sexualities that are shown in the show.
What else have I done this week? Lots of sudokus. I am really loving a sudoku app that I downloaded which is by the cracking the cryptic on YouTube. I am spending a lot of time on the app getting through the puzzles. My average time is about thirty minutes and I’m getting better. These are some pretty hard sudokus but my brain is loving the challenge.
I’m not sure what else I can say to you. My weeks are pretty boring mostly despite how busy I am keeping myself. But it is mostly busy on here. I am also restricted on my walking outside in an afternoon, especially when I twisted my ankle.
When I was in university, my first year I twisted my ankle pretty severely in a dance competition I couldn’t dance for nearly ten weeks. I was pretty lucky it was the last comp of the year. But the damage I did to my tendon … when I do any damage to it now, it really … well … it really hurts. I had to rest up for a couple of days … not that I had anywhere to go. I’m back up on it now, luckily.
And that’s it.
Stay home. Stay safe.
And until next time, happy reading.
