A monthly update on what we're reading, watching and listening to, when we're not making soap that is.
How Will Santa Find Us by Shane O'Brien and Stephen Rogers - When their family loses their home, a little girl and her younger brother are left with nowhere to stay for Christmas. With artwork from some of Ireland’s best-loved illustrators, and all profits going to support Focus Ireland to help with their amazing work fighting homelessness in Ireland.
The Good Place - Can Michael Schur do no wrong? With a career that spans Parks & Recreation, The Office and now The Good Place, Schur has the Midas Touch with TV shows. The Good Place is confirmed to end at a 4 Season run, which is great since there's a definite ending for viewers but also terrible because it's so good, we want it to go on forever.
Colossal - Not sure how this film came onto our radar, it's from 2016. But it is so enjoyable. It's really funny, it's heart warming and it's deep. It's a sci-fi starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. Give it a watch, we'd love to hear what you think!
Crackling - This is a playlist I go back to a lot at this time of year. It's perfect to listen to on a blustery Saturday afternoon while cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
Lo-Fi Christmas - For those who are ready for the gentle lead into the festive period, this is the perfect playlist. It's the kind of Christmas playlist that might slip by unnoticed if you have any humbugs around!
