Out To Lunch

It wasn't the best choice of film yesterday. I wasn't aware of the subject matter of 'The Leisure Seeker' starring Helen Mirren and Donald Southerland and if I had known, I wouldn't have gone to see it. It was well acted, there were plenty of comic moments, but overall it was a very sad story. Although it dealt with a completely different illness, the portrayal of watching the person you know and love disappear as the illness progresses was a bit too close to home for me. I left the cinema feeling very melancholy, a feeling that stayed with me for the rest of the day, and is still with me this morning.

I don't think it's a day for being at home on my own so I've arranged to meet a friend for coffee and probably lunch. I haven't seen L for a few weeks so we'll have plenty to talk about, laughs are guaranteed and I should be able to shake myself out of this mood. A pudding or two will help!

Back tomorrow in a more cheerful frame of mind.

  2. It's always hard when something in a film or book resonates with experience. I don't pretend to know how you feel so I am sending you some cyber cwtches (like hugs but with a Welsh accent) to ease away the melancholy. The grey skies don't help moods much either but when it rains the garden will love it!

  5. I'm sorry the film left you feeling sad, Eileen, but you dealt with your feelings in a very positive way, arranging to spend some time with a friend. Hope you've enjoyed your coffee and lunch and pudding, in addition to some good conversation and laughs. Take care.
