Blub-A-Rama!

Welcome to the Blub Fest if you've headed here from Nat's blog after weeping your wee peepers out at her vid clip from Truly Madly Deeply.

Yes we're having a Tear Jerker Movie Tribute and combining for a fun contest - you can win our books, some fabby smellies and other treat items. But you have to open that heart to enter by emailing Nat and spilling your alltime fave weepie movie! We want to know why it hurts - emotion, emotion, emotion!

And so to begin...I cry at lots of strange things. Old movies get me going. Some very bad movies make me cry too. It could be a very long list but I'll hold myself back.

Anyway, I could only kick things off with the one that makes me howl the hardest!

THE PIANO. In fact I won't even try to detail why...everything about it makes my lip tremble and my eyes brim. First of all I'm a sucker for costume drama but this one...well it's just in another league. From the amazing Sam Neill, Holly Hunter and Harvey Keitel - to the pathos of the situation, (a non speaking mail order bride), her love for her daughter, the love affair itself and the passion with music, plus don't get me started on the dramatic horrific climax. I'll be in pieces all over again! Enjoy the vid - just make sure you have a packet of Kleenex at the READY!

Tagged

Apologies to Jess who has book-tagged me ages ago. Anyway I’m currently reading a fabby book so I’m using it for my response…
1. Pick up the nearest book.2. Open it to page 123.3. Find the fifth sentence.4. Post the next three sentences.5. Tag five people and post a comment to the person who tagged you once you've posted your three sentences.Kathleen Korbel’s Dangerous Temptation has me utterly gripped so here are the relevant sentences:

Sorcha nodded. “And in all this time, why is it you are the last to know
that you can’t escape the truth in your music?”
“What truth?”


This is actually a pivotal sentence in the book because Fairy Princess Nuala has unwittingly displayed her deep love of a mortal to the whole Fairy Court through her harp playing and singing. It spells danger for the entire fairy realm.

This fabulous Silhouette Nocturne is set in a wonderful faerie world with an anthropologist hero who just has me sighing wistfully and a wonderful fairy heroine whose shoes I’m loving walking in! A much recommended read!Whoever else wants to do it – please go ahead and share your current great read!

Isn't it always the way! You get good news on one project and yet all you do is hanker to hear about the one that's in limbo. But that's typical of me. Always wishing away on 'if onlys'.

But hey just lookie here...isn't it gorgeous! I so love the Nocturne and Nocturne Bites branding it positively makes me salivate!!!!
And makes me want, want, want it even MORE!
