 After making the bed and hoovering mum took herself to the cinema to see the new Topgun movie.  It was a full house in the biggest theater in the city, and the most people has seen in a cinema in years.  It was interesting people watching with a mixture of ages, family and friend groups.

Mum enjoyed the movie.  It was a bit cheesy, and so similar to the original, but still an entertaining watch and the feel of a big block buster.  Mum would give it a 4/5.  As mum took the bus home the line to the next cinema was down the stairs,  and out on the street and around the block - something mum has never seen.

Now mum is busy yawning and ready for more sleep.  Luckily it is the Queens birthday holiday tomorrow,  so another sleep in.


  1. It sounds like your mum had a fun day, Poppy. The biped hasn't seen a movie in the theatre in so many years that she's lost count!

    Have a lovely day.

  2. What a fun day for your mum, Poppy. We are glad the two of you get to enjoy the Queen's birthday holiday together; we hope you both get some good sleep. :)

  3. I'm like Kim and Derry, not theaters in forever it seems. I remember the original Top Gun. Not sure if I'll
    look for the new one when it makes DVD at the library. But spending the day out sounds fun.

  4. Mum isn't likely to go see this movie, but people are happy that they can get out and about. Mingle and go see shows. Mum took herself to see the new Downton movie last week.

  5. She had a good time and deserves her beauty rest and lots of snuggles!
