This seems like a really weird thing to recommend but I am recommending Lemsip cold and flu tablets, especially the ones that come with both day and night capsules. I took these for a couple of days and almost instantly felt better and I love the fact that they acknowledge the fact that you don't particularly want to be taking capsules that contain caffeine at night.

|When I walked into the cinema to watch 'What We Did On Our Holiday' I was quite looking forward to it. It looked like a feel-good family film with a quality cast (it stars Billy Connolly, David Tennant and Rosamund Pike) and of course it has to be good, it's directed by the same people who make outnumbered.|
And indeed throughout the film several similarities between the film and outnumbered did appear. Three rowdy kids, two hapless parents with a difficult marriage and a story about coping with what you've got.
The film was great, however not so much the feel-good film I was expecting. There's a shock twist about half way through and the way the kids react to it is unexpected to say the least. I would definitely recommend the film (it is funny after all) although perhaps not to a younger audience as it isn't quite the family film you expect.
None the less 'What We Did On Our Holiday' is a quality British film that entertains and conveys a nice message. Family is family, no matter how annoying they might be.

For some reason I have recently decided to put myself through the torture of reading travel blogs. I have always followed a couple but after discovering some great bloggers (and scrolling through their archives) I now have an intense sense of wanderlust.
Where for? About a thousand places, well okay maybe that's an exaggeration but there is a lot of places I want to go and I don't seem to have the time - or money - to go there.
Russia is a place I want to visit desperately. After reading several books set there and reading numerous blog posts about different destinations I really want to go. I think the historical background of it all and the architecture makes the place special.
I also want to visit New York City, I have visited America before (for Disneyland when I was seven, I'm not sure if it quite counts) and I really want to visit the 'Big Apple' no thanks to Love Taza's New York City Guide.
I also want to visit Mexico. That happens to be a dream both me and my Dad share and so hopefully that one stands a better chance of becoming a reality.
That's just a brief highlight of the places I want to go but I can't help this feeling of wanderlust. Who knows, maybe one day I'll actually be able to satisfy it...
