“Start it at 19 minutes Dad”

Yep, as promised, we picked up Star Wars at exactly 19 minutes (Luke Skywalker was just sulking about, explaining to Obi Wan Kenobi that he wouldn’t be able to go with him to Alderaan ……).

Sorry, got a bit carried away.

Once again, Joseph watched, almost without blinking, with the odd question about who was who and to remind him of what their names were. We got to where Luke, Han Solo (an incredibly young looking Harrison Ford), Princess Leia and Chewbacca are in a garbage crushing room and only just get saved when C3-PO and R2-D2 shut down the hydraulics to the crusher. I promised to let him watch the rest at a later date as both children were wiped out and it was bath time.

Apparently however, Joseph was awake at 4.30this morning, because he was worried about monsters so I’m not entirely sure Star Wars was such a good idea!

We’ll see.

On a lighter note, we went to San Gennaro’s pizzeria in Battersea, SW London for Mother’s Day. The restaurant holds a special place in my heart as it was where M and I got engaged (as I mentioned last week) and it was thanks to the then manager, that we decided to marry in Italy.

It hasn’t changed, apart from some of the staff, but they were very friendly and the food was just as amazing as it was went it was our regular Friday night destination. The buffalo mozzarella was fantastic and as always, I ordered the Classica pizza with extra olives.


On a less happy note, my mum spent Mother’s Day all on her own. She had set off for the airport as she was spending the weekend with some girlfriends in Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day before flying down to relatives on the West coast.

Mum being Mum however, she forgot to take her passport, which is always a bit of a no-no when you’re supposed to be getting on a plane. Before you ask, I did invite her to lunch with us but she never made it across.

Hopefully when I take the children over in a couple of weeks, it will make up for it.
