DVD - something a little different

hey guys, as you know I've recently delved into the massively addictive nail stamping craze, complete with new blog dedicated only to it! Check my blog out here...
So I've been thinking lately about some of the 'craft' blogs that I follow and how they've evolved over the last 12 months or so, with many bloggers sharing more than just their crafts. Now I'm not really into sharing all my personal bits and pieces, that's what Facebook is for and as it should be so that I can choose who can see who/what/when/where and why... God knows who reads this blog-o!

So I'm sharing something different, as my blog title suggests, this is a place for my Free-time Fillings :)
And yesterday I welcomed the New Year with food poisoning, not something I wish to repeat and not a good omen for the year :/

So on the couch I was with bucket handy... watching a DVD I borrowed from my mother.
I have no idea when this movie was released, or when out on DVD, but I think it is 'relatively' new :)

The Sapphires

Being Australian it would be a crime not to eventually watch this movie, and lucky for me I quite enjoyed it. I liked watching the actresses I recognise from their local work (I am a HUGE Offspring FAN!!!), and Jessica Mauboy's voice is incredible.. who knew Deborah Mailman could sing?
And how can anyone resist the cute little Irish (?) bloke from the Bridesmaids movie? Chris O'Dowd.
I thought he was great! Not a bad way to spend a spewy afternoon on the couch on the first day of the month... YEAR!
Have you seen this movie? What did you think?

Hi Loz, sorry to hear you were sick. Yes I've seen the Sapphires. It totally rocks. Loved it, the comedy, the drama the language those girls used just made me smile, the sayings were so Aussie!

Hope you're much recovered.

Cheers,

Sorry you weren't feeling well on the first day of the year but lucky you got to watch this movie. It is on my list to watch one day. Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2013. Trying to catch up in blogland since I have finally packed away Christmas. :-)
