I am already grown up, I just get older.

Léon the Professional is my all time favourite movie. The most capivating thing about this film (aside from Gary Oldman's spectacular as always bad guy portrayl)? A 13 year old Natalie Portman's performance as Mathilda. It is flawless. As is little Mathilda's style.

Other things that are making me very happy this weekend:
1. Guylian chocolate shells. All my aunts and uncles have come to Belfast for easter weekend. I now have enough chocolate to last me the rest of the year.
2. Magners (not Bulmers) cider. My dad always makes sure we're in constant supply when I come home now. I've been sat in the garden all day cider and book in hand.
3. Beautiful boys with dreadlocks.
4. Plastic garden flamingos.
5. A young 1991 Eddie Vedder.


  1. I've never seen that film before but you've definitely sold me! x

  2. OH MY GOD. I even like Sting now because of it.

  3. Oh Emy, that song is beautiful, totally captures the mood of the film. I have a soft spot for Sting ;) I "blame" most of my music tastes on my parents.
