Bonding with my Brother

So yesterday Mum took most of the younger kids out, and me and Rogan had a master plan. A good plan. A stupendous one, even.
We were going to watch a Hornblower in the middle of the day! Now, if you are from a big family, this idea of watching something in the middle of the day which your younger siblings aren't allowed to watch is a very strange concept. Also it's holidays. :D
But we did it anyway. We sat ourselves in the study and devoted about two hours of our time watching it, and saying which characters we hated, cheering on Horatio and Archie and their men and generally booing the stupid French guy with his guillotine.
Can I just say how much I love his hat? 
But wait! I'm not finished, later on I asked Mum if we could watch the next one after that! And being the awesome person she is, she let us do that as well.
And after that, my mind went working again, and yeah I thought 'Hey maybe we can watch the next one tonight!' And Mum said that was okay as well!
Seriously that was about 5 1/2 hours of watching the story of a British Naval officer. And we loved every minute of it. Rogan and I were the only ones who watched, and I think hes little heart was broken when both Archie (*sob*) and Williard (*sob*) both died. Even so, though they are both some of my favourite characters as well.
And through all three movies Rogan was asking questions and I was answering and we were saying who was irritating, who we liked, and who we absolutely hated, or needed a spine.
Anyway, it was great fun to do that, and today Mum is taking all the little kids with her to do some birthday shopping for Eden. Sadly, Rogan is going as well, so I shall have to find something else to do, I wonder what?

God Bless


  1. Sounds amazing! I love spending time with my big sister. She is showing me Jane Austen mini series!
    P.S can I follow your blog?

    1. Hi Kim! :D Thanks so much for commenting. Spending time with siblings is awesome! I've only really seen P&P '95 but I did start the Manfield Park min series made in the eighties, it was pretty good. :)
      I would love it if you would! :) And enjoy.

      God Bless,

    2. Thanks! I have just made my own blog, here is the link if you are interested:

    3. I checked it out and followed. :D Enjoy blogging!

  2. That's cool! Glad you had a good time together. And just from the picture and the costumes it looks like a cool show!

    1. Glad you think so. Yes, it was great doing it together. :) It is! They are full-length movies and were made in the late 90s but the amount of detail they put into the show was awesome!


Hello, please do comment won't you.? :)
I enjoy reading every single one, though I might not reply to them very quickly, be assured that I read and enjoyed each one.
God Bless! :)
