We’ve had guests for the last two weekends, which is always lovely, but generally means more work for me and my husband, so a chilled out film night was very much needed by us all, especially Z who is exhausted from all the hopping around on his good leg.
I popped to Morrisons which is our nearest supermarket. It is quite a small branch, but always well stocked and usually has some great special offers. The first thing I noticed today was that they had a of lot plants and garden items for sale, which instantly cheered me up, and gave me a bit of garden inspiration. On impulse I picked up a little pepper plant for the kids to add to their ever growing vegetable garden.
In the soft drinks aisle I was pleased to see an offer on both large and small bottles of Coca Cola. I chose the 4 pack 500ml bottles as they are handy for taking out and about. For snacks I chose Pom Bears, Celebrations and some sweets.
The kids were delighted to see the treats when I got home, and couldn’t wait to start.
Finding a movie everyone wanted to watch was harder than I anticipated. Z wanted to watch ‘Wreck it Ralph’, S wanted ‘The Incredibles’ and H wanted ‘Peter Pan’. Eventually, we compromised on ‘Ice Age’. We watched Ice Age 4 in the cinema recently and are trying to catch up on the earlier movies.
My husband made some fresh popcorn, which we seasoned with a bit of cinnamon butter and then we all snuggled up on the sofa after getting ready for bed. It was so lovely to all be together watching a film instead of the kids watching TV alone whilst we tidy or cook.
The children loved snuggling up with us and adored the snacks. The popcorn was a big favourite, especially the cinnamon bits.
They giggled all the way through the film, as did I. It was a really lovely evening, and something we will definitely do more frequently.
Daddy was so relaxed he fell asleep.

What a great family night! Good old Daddy doing what Daddies do best!!
Love the sound of the cinnamon popcorn, I will have to give that a try!
It was delicious 🙂
