Some days are rubbish. When there's too much work, too much to do, and too many things to worry about, Harry Potter may well be the answer. The first couple of movies, anyway. You know which ones I mean - the cute sweet ones that leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. The perfect option for a Monday night.

I haven't seen the final movie yet (it's on my list...), so watching them in order as they are shown on TV, starting with Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, seemed like a good alternative. Especially on a Monday night when I needed that warm fuzzy cuddle.

By now I'm sure you all know the story...  a young boy finds out his parents were actually a witch and wizard, and from there ends up at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he meets his best friends, Ron and Hermione.

 There's not a lot else to say - just that sometimes you need that big movie cuddle.

Rating: 4 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
