Blogtember Day 11: Friday Night At Home Plans

Disclaimer: I haven't been paid to promote anything, just my thoughts on what makes a great Friday night in x
Hi Honeys
I hope you're all well and have had a fabulous week so far.  We've been de-cluttering and organizing :) Today is day 11 of the blogtember challenge organized by the lovely Bailley Jean at Brave Blog Love. 

Today's prompt is:  It's a Friday night and you decide to stay in. What do you do?
Blogtember Challenge 2015 Day 11 Friday Night At Home
As you might know honeys I usually work late shift on Fridays so any Friday I'm not working is both rare and precious.  So, what would we do with a rare Friday evening together at home?  Easy, movies!!

Yep, it might not be exciting or glamorous but on a fabulous non working Friday evening, right after dinner I'd be off for a shower with my favourite soapy treats, then into my PJs and onto the sofa to hug Jade and maybe snuggle with Hubby too :)

We'll have nibbles to eat, fruit juice or soda to drink (neither of us drink alcohol) and a handful of DVDs to watch. Bliss!  Viewing might be themed, for instance last weekend we watched the original Star Wars trilogy back to back.   Or maybe a couple of vintage Ealing comedies such as The Lavender Hill Mob (1951)  Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949)  Passport to Pimlico (1949) or Whiskey Galore (1949) - such joy!

A recently re-discovered favourite is the wonderful School for Scoundrels (1960).  It follows the lead character Henry Palfrey, played by Ian Carmichael, as he is generally put upon by members of his club, dodgy car salesmen and even his own employees, until he discovers the College of Lifemanship.  He enrols, completes the course and sets out to redress the balance of his life and win back his true love. 
School for scoundrels 1960

There are no words for how fabulous this movie is, I have literally lost count of how many times I've watched it over the years and I still adore it.  You can see a clip here honeys, it's where he sets out to teach the two crooked car salesmen who sold him a monster of a car, a wee lesson :) If you ever get a chance to watch this joyful wee film I would absolutely recommend it.  There was a truly dreadful remake in 2006 starring the usually wonderful Billy Bob Thornton which, like most re-makes is best forgotten entirely.

Movies, nibbles & hugs on the sofa with Hubby & our furbaby Jade - now that's a perfect evening honeys :)   Can't wait to see what everyone else has written for today's post, till next time dear ones, hugs always xx


  1. Great minds think alike! I am totally going to watch School for Scoundrels! I have never seen it and it does sound like British humour at its best!

    1. Enjoy Paula, you'll love it! I hope you're having a fabulous weekend, our lovely sunshine has gone again to be replaced by rain and chilly winds. Time for scarves, mittens and hot chocolate I think :) hugs always xxx
