Robots

Directed by Chris Wedge. Voices by Ewan McGregor, Halle Berry, Mel Brooks, Amanda Bynes, Robin Williams …
I confess, I fell asleep about three quarters of the way in to this film, but I gather from the kids that it has a happy ending. None-the-less, it does show that it wasn’t exactly and interesting film to watch. From the makers of Finding Nemo, I was expecting more of the humour – which I loved in that film – but this obviously had a different script writer, as there were only a few moments where I smiled, let alone laughed. It was far too serious for my liking, and my 6 year old soon got restless. Older boys with an interest in robots or inventing things will like it though.
The story wasn’t exactly original either, and transposing it onto robots didn’t disguise that fact. A boy from a poor family, given hand-me-downs all his life goes off to seek his fortune in the city with an idea of an invention to sell. Things don’t go as expected; riches don’t come easily his way, and you can probably guess the rest.
Although, girls will probably think Robots is ok, this is definitely one for the boys, and that’s good news for parents who have no shortage of choice with all the Barbie and Disney Princess films.
Overall, it’s an average, ok kind of film.

Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
