Last night I finally managed to watch this incredible movie. I had it at home for some weeks already but somehow never had the time to watch it - or didn't feel like doing so. I had some high expectations on that one so... I was in a bit of a melancholy mood yesterday and thought this might cheer me up (and at the same time satisfy my need for some drama and tears...)! It's such a feel-good movie. When it's over, actually. And Sandra Bullock was amazing, indeed. I was crying thoughout the first hour... Okay, I'm always crying at movies. (At most of them, anyway. Maybe because I like drama and sad stories without happy endings much better than comedies.) It was just so sad when he was walking around all alone, having nowhere to go and noone to talk to. But I really felt happy after seeing it because it's so nice and warm and touching... Some may think it gets kitschy in the end... I still like it. (And I'm not so into the Happy-Family-Movies at all...)
"Sophie Dahl’s gorgeous new book is a seasonal almanac of moreish yet nutritious recipes, accompanied by her delightfully quirky illustrations. Taking in the Victorian Beeton era and travelling from London to Paris, Sophie’s follow up to the best-selling Voluptuous Delights features nostalgic dishes and food-filled memories."

I finally got it. After the owner of my favourite bookstore told me it's gonna take at least another year until the German version will be published... I just ordered the English one. I was in the mail today. Actually the postman just caught me before leaving the house. The package would have been to big for my mailbox and I just hate having to go to the post office, wait in line for hours... just to pick it up. Anyway... I've been flipping through the pages already and absolutely love it. Gonna try some new recipes from the winter season within the next few weeks. (It's actually winter since noon. Temperature dropped and it started snowing. Not that it's gonna last within the city but hey... Winter has finally arrived!)

That song reminds me of a beautiful winter day (which I'm still waiting for here...). The whole album is just great. Very calm, ballad style. Found it by chance. Love it. Just close your eyes and dream away...
