This Christmas has been all about spending time as a family for us and although Matthew has been working most of the festive period we haven’t wasted any of the time that we did spend together. We took Pepper out for walks, we braved the sales (but only once and very briefly as it was madness) and we even tried out some of the boys news toys and computer games. One of the things that I enjoyed the most though was the couple of days we sat and watched DVDs together. We bought lots of yummy goodies to eat and shared some of the chocolate treats that the boys had been bought (they had 20 selection boxes between them). During the day we watched family films and then in the evening we watched something aimed at us adults.
Once the boys had hopped off to bed we decided we would order a take away, have a few cheeky drinks and watch that DVD. Neither of us like the hustle and bustle of going out over the festive period, so being in together enjoying each other company is a perfect night for us.
I was recently sent a DVD called Cheerful Weather for the Wedding from Zavvi. The DVD is rated as a PG and is currently priced at £9.95. It is also available to buy on Bluray too. The film is based on the very popular book by Julia Strachey.
“On a crisp December morning in 1932, bride-to-be Dolly (Felictiy Jones) hides in her bedroom as her many family members arrive for the wedding with all of the cheerfulness, chaos and grievances that go with such occasions. But trouble soon appears with the arrival of Joseph (Luke Treadaway), Dolly’s lover from the previous summer, who, to her mother’s (Elizabeth McGovern – Downton Abbey) exasperation, throws Dolly’s feelings into turmoil.
With lavish costumes and beautiful English countryside, Cheerful Weather for the Wedding is a joy from start to finish in the grand tradition of English period comedy-dramas, filled with light-hearted humour and steamy romance“.
This is the typical film I would choose to buy and watch myself. I love anything that has a romantic story and I have a love for period dramas too. This is something of a new liking as I wasn’t something I would ever consider until watching the likes of Mr Selfridge or Downton Abbey. So if like me you are a huge fan of period dramas you will enjoy this too.
If your looking for a new DVD or two then you should head over to Zavvi. At the minute they have a sale on where you can pick up items with upto 80% off their original prices. So in my opinion they’re well worth a look.
