Driving home from church today I had a great conversation with my teenage daughter about writing and we got to talking about Cecelia Ahern who had her first book, 'P.S. I Love You', published at age 21 and how it went on to become a movie. (The movie was great, but nowhere near as good as the book - but that's another story!)  My daughter had yet to see the movie and asked if we could watch it. Well, it was a cold drizzly kind of day - perfect for a mushy movie.

After lunch we searched through our stash of DVDs, only to come up empty handed. I was so sure I had a copy. A little disappointed, we settled for 'Kate and Leopold'. Time-travel, romance and Hugh Jackman, what more could you want on a rainy Sunday afternoon?

A few hours later we were checking if there was anything worth watching on the telly tonight and bingo!  'P.S. I Love You' was on!

So we've had a great day watching two of my favourite chick flicks. My other favourites would have to be Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. What are yours?


  1. "You've Got Mail" is a wonderful, fun movie! Have you ever seen "The Matchmaker" with Janeane Garofalo and David O'Hara? One of my FAVORITE chick flicks!

  2. I've never seen 'The Matchmaker'. It looks really good. Definitely one to watch out for - I can feel a trip to the video shop coming on. Oh, in New Zealand when we say 'the video shop' we really mean the DVD hire place. :)

  3. Hi Sue,

    I enjoyed Kate and Leopold. How nice to spend time with your daughter especially when it comes to movies and books.

    Weather up here is still lovely, a little cooler in the mornings though.

    1. Hi Joanne,
      My daughter and I like a lot of the same books and movies which is nice. Mornings are definitely cooler here too. The end of daylight saving will ease that a bit.

      I hope your writing is going well.

  4. I don't watch a lot of chick flicks but I do have a few favourites. I like North and South and Jane Austen films.
