- I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

U Dear Rocky - Up
When I was sick, a friend bought me the DVD of Up. I didn't watch it for the longest time - maybe a year. I was well long before I picked it up and when I sat down to watch it for the first time, I had no expectations.
The film began and I thought the relationship between Carl and Ellie was cute.
When they found out they couldn't have babies, my heart broke and I sobbed. I'd just had a hysterectomy. I wondered why on earth my friend had given me such a film - something so close to home - and then I watched the rest of it.
I cannot put into words the positive impact this little cartoon movie has had on me.
I give it a 10/10.
