Bonjour mes amis, I'm excitingly off to the Cannes Film Festival for a long weekend away and I simply cannot wait.
So we'd not attended a film premiere for a while (hard life huh) and then two come along at once! I know!!! We attended the glittering world premiere of Paddington last week at the Odeon Leicester Square and before even hitting the publish button on the post about it, I'd received an invite for the Get Santa premiere, the following Sunday!
Yesterday was a rather special day for this family as along with my husband Peter, our child Oliver, 4 and my friend Sharmin who was visiting from Amsterdam, I attended the world premiere of Paddington.
Tuesday night saw invited to attend the opening night of the Northern Ballet's Cinderella at the Palace Theatre in Manchester.
I've tried to write this post a couple of times before now but in all honesty I've only just about recovered from what can only be described as an absolutely epic time at the Cannes Film Festival, 5 days on from returning home on Saturday... One of the most famous film festivals in the world, this is the third time I've had the pleasure of attending this iconic celebration of film and it did not disappoint, let me tell you.
Please don't judge me... As much as I love experimental European films and conceptual art (I do), I need to wind down watching mind numbing escapist crap sometimes. What? No judgement remember.
