Hanging Up
Film, English version

A Turtle's Tale

Holby City
Medical drama, English version
(I was proud of Arthur for yelling at Guy & getting both him and Zosia to do a jigsaw puzzle and figure their father/daughter relationship out.)

Gnomeo and Juliet
REWATCH! - Animated film, English version

(Ki made her idol debut as the Pom Pom Crepe Girl!)

REWATCH! (+ first time watch) - Music idol anime, Japanese version
(Squee! Rewatching is awesome, just as seeing episodes for the first time is - I was horrified then thrilled by the direction the anime takes. Eager to see what happens next!)

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Season 3
REWATCH! - Anime, English version
(These fillies continue to prove that friendship truly is magic!)

Avatar The Last Air Bender: Season 2
REWATCH! - Anime
(I'm having to watch less of this series each week as it is a lot more doomy & gloom, but the humour shines through and makes me smile...)

Winx: Season 2
Magical girl anime, French version
(I adore falling back in love with these fairies-roll on their Charmix power!)

Craft, games and more 
I've been very productive this week. I've started this heart and rose bookmark duo ... well as this bee hive magnet kit...

I've done cross stitch for enough years that counting where I need to sew is second nature, making it easy to do even when super tired. It's in the realm of being able to watch French when I'm tired too.

Crochet wise I'm working on this bright and cheery blanket for a good friend...

I will be making a duplicate for Nayu's Crochet Dreams (new website coming soon!) as the colours are perfect for Starlight Academy's dance uniform in the second and 3rd season of Aikatsu.

I've started making a set of coasters as a thank you gift for someone, which remind me of cherry blossom.

With help stirring from my family I made rice crispy marshmallow squares!!! 

I haven't had them for best part of 18 years, as vegetarian marshmallows are crazy prices. These are from the fish based marshmallows, which don't taste of fish at all. They do make the mixture harder than with other gelatin,  but it still tastes totally delicious. I will be trying some with a bit of chocolate on top, like a few Hershey's Kisses or Reeces cups,with marshmallows on top! Ah, marshmallows are great!

Game has been from my usual 10E/10E games by Gameloft.

I'm super excited by the winter snow scenes in My Little Pony for android, I've got the canary and now saving for the ladybug in Littlest Pet Shop, and waiting for a cute baby T-rex to hatch in my Ice Age Village. It's all go here! 

That's all for this week, since its the holidays I'm hoping to do much more next week!
