Some Christmas Lists from me.
Films I have seen recently
- Thor Ragnock (Possibly – can’t remember actual name of it) Very funny. Didn’t know who anyone was.
- Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool. Not so funny. Very good but sad though. Julie Walters = genius.
- Paddington 2. Extremely funny. Laughed a lot but also sobbed like baby.
- Murder on the Orient Express. Look – you know what you are going to get. Stop moaning.
Telly I have liked
- Howard’s End. Yummy. Bit weird but yummy.
- Nigella’s Kitchen Table. Would never actually cook anything. Just like looking at it all.
- (Struggling a bit)
- BT Sport Champion’s League Coverage. Does that count?
HOH would like to include Peaky Blinders and a French thing about lots of dead people on a bus. Am vetoing because it is my list and because we all know what happens in these things and it ‘s not pleasant.
Books next to my bed
- Agatha Christie. Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Guessed it in second chapter. Boom! (V good though)
- CP Snow. The Affair. Like wading through treacle. In a good way.
- Alan Bennett. Keeping on Keeping on. He’s not really very cheerful.
- Tom Wright. Advent for Everyone. Keep having to re-read. Deceptive depth.
Aged Parent’s Dilemmas
- When AP popped her head unannounced round someone’s flat door – was it likely that they thought she was on the rob? Answer. No.
- Is it her position to tell her friend that her hat with floppy bits that tie under her chin makes her look like Deputy Dawg? Answer. Completely no.
- Is The Christmas Wish with Rob Lowe the greatest film ever made? This is taking into account the amount of times AP has watched it? Answer. Still no.
- Is a film about Jews dying horrible deaths after hiding under floorboards during the Holocaust an acceptable Christmas present if she really wants to see it? Answer. No because I ain’t asking for it in HMV
- Is it acceptable to chat with your granddaughter about bowel movements, Laxido or wind? Answer. No! No! (You’ll have to take my word for it but that was a stereo answer.
People who are really annoying me at the present time
Have been advised to scrap this because it is not very Christian and some of it could end up in court. Pah! Am looking up Christian curses instead. It’s also quite a long list.
Things I am panicking about (in a non Philippian faith/prayer type way)
- Donald Trump (Really America? No. Seriously. I mean, it wouldn’t be my business unless he wasn’t TRYING TO BLOW THE WHOLE WORLD UP)
- Brexit. Who has any actual idea what is happening. What is going to happen? These people seem to be idiots. All of ’em.
- Christmas. Have you seen the date? Have I bought anything? What do you think?
Philippians 4 v 6
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the centre of your life.
