on Christmas eve we have family round which is great, if rather hectic. The family help, but tomorrow will be a day of housework and an evening of cooking. I love it but I do find I envy those who snuggle up quietly in front of the telly, to watch a heartwarming story somewhat.
This evening hubby was out and I saw a chance to watch a DVD of my choice. I lit candles.
And got out my crochet to work on, though I didn't actually do much hooking.
As the wind and rain of Storm Barbara raged outside (ok, raged maybe exaggerating thing a little, but it is wet and windy) I sat down to watch a movie which was filmed in the place I grew up. It was fun to location spot beautiful Wycoller on a sunny spring day.
and the track to the Bronte falls (I think)
and the Keighley and worth Valley Railway
It's just such a lovely movie.
With great acting, beautiful costumes, humour and sadness in just the right proportions...oh and great scenery :0)
She watched quiet a lot of the filming, and so as a four year old I guess I may have seen some of it too. Though my memory is not good enough to remember that far back, I do recognise many of the places. This bakers shop was a general store called Southams when I was a child ( It's a gift shop now)
and the butchers you can see here is Haworth Tourist information Centre
the lane up to the Church.
and Haworth Church it's self
I had such a lovely time quietly watching this touching story, which I haven't seen for a few years.
It has a great ending, which , I'm sure lots of you lovelies are familiar with.
And it was the perfect viewing for my early Christmas Eve :0)
