Sunday evenings in the Hargreaves house always end with a movie. It’s our thing. Our Little Family tradition. Well it’s Mr H’s thing actually, which he introduced to me some 9-years ago when we first met. The tradition has stayed with us over the years, and I’m glad, it turns out that Lil G is as much a movie buff as we are. Our furry baby is all to happy to get involved on the snuggly action too.
It goes a little something like this … (Q the music!)
We batten down the hatches at 5pm, pj’s on, blankets at the ready, cushions puffed and if we’re lucky a box of popcorn to share.
Lil G calls it Cinema time.
We refuse entry to all door knockers, our family and friends know that we are not to be disturbed, we literally hide away and snuggle under a blanket. As I type this I can’t help but think how ruthless does it sound? We justify it by saying to ourselves that this is our time, just for us. It’s something we look forward to. Truth be told, we’re pretty ruthless with this time. The way we look at it, is that we won’t get this time back. We tailor our plans on a Sunday to fit in with this schedule. It even came up in one of the readings at our wedding. You can see where Lil G gets his Georgeisms from can’t you! That would be Mr H!
As the autumn weather creeps in we’re all too happy to snuggle up under a blanket and savour the last few hours of precious family time. Even more so today as Mr H and I snook off early yesterday for the day and night and morning to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Nothing quite replaces family time does it? Weekends seem to fly by. Movie Night has become one of The Ordinary Moments for Our Little Family.
The biggest questions are…
Which movie will it be?
Sweet or salted?
A question for you … Do you have a thing? I’d love for you to share it with me.
