Films, flannel and final phrase.

1. Kino, the cinema and cafe in Hawkhurst because the seats have enough leg room and no-one talks during the film.

2. I ask to borrow a flannel, and The Mother says not to tell anyone that she can only offer me a choice of eleven. I pick the one with a spotty dog on it.

3. My father comes in to say goodnight just as I am reading the last words of the new Harry Potter.

  3. Lauren -- thank you so much! Everyone, check out what Lauren has made at http://llaurenb.blogspot.com/2007/07/have-you-seen-this-website.html

    Laura -- not stupid at all. If you call the small square towel you use to wash your face with something other than a flannel, you call it something other than a flannel. (I can't imagine what, though!)

  4. lovely things to share, though I have never heard of the small towel being called a flannel either. I thought you meant pajamas lol.

    Peace and Blessings!

  6. Hmm. I'm thinking the flannel is a washcloth in the states :).

    And, kudos for adding HP as a beautiful thing, because that book was a solid finish to the series!

  8. If it's made of terrycloth, why is it called a flannel?
