The setting up of the new blog has been everything but smooth, I have definitely come across some speed humps along the way but in the end it was very much worth it (so grateful for my generous helper). After a few weeks of hardly leaving my desk, starting at 6am and working until 2.30am I think my kids will be very happy to have their mum back, because after all I am a stay-at-home-mum so I can be there for my children and they have been missing out lately. I myself could do with a relaxing night out and a good drink, I think ‘The Minny’ (inspired by the much-talked-about movie The Help) sounds delicious! And actually I am really hoping to go see the movie in the next couple of weeks.

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny — three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960’s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed — even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.
