So today Ben had a little surprise for me.
He wouldn’t tell me anything what we was doing and sorted our good friends Michelle & Mark to watch the kids so he could treat me.
Well he took me to see one of my favourite childhood films the new live action movie. Beauty and the beast. My excitement was unreal I felt like a child again I couldn’t wait to watch it.
Before the film started we went for some food at TGI Fridays. We ordered.. waited.. waited.. and waited some more. Thinking they must of been out shooting the cow for our burgers we was about to complain when our waiter came over to apologise. They had a technical error and although our order was placed on the system it didn’t go over to the chefs system. Arrrgggghhhh we was starving by this time but was assured our order was now taking priority. We didn’t have to make a complaint the manager came straight over and gave us 25% discount and 5 minutes later our food arrived and it was really nice.
Then it was time for our film. Not only was Ben treating me to a cinema trip but we went to the newest cinema with… wait for it.. recliner chairs!!! It was so awesome I didn’t have dead legs or a bad back from the usual uncomfy cinema seats.
The film… I loved it. Totally lived up to my expectations. Had all the classic songs you love in the original animated movie plus new ones. I couldn’t help but sing along to the ones I knew in my head.
I loved the slight plot changes too (I won’t say unless someone is reading this who hasn’t yet seen it).
It was a great film and I will be buying it on DVD when it’s released.
Ben dozed off during the film. Had to nudge him because he started to snore. Bless him he was so tired from work but still made the time and effort to treat me and give me a break from being mummy for a few hours.
Had a lovely day catching up just the two of us and watching a film I’ve been so eager to see but also couldn’t wait to get home and snuggle with our babies and watch a film of Rileys choice.
All in all a lovely day.
