Movie Meme+

Thanks to @Katejf for meme, as am totally exhausted and brain not working. Today’s been the first day I’ve felt well, so after a couple loads of washing I weeded the front garden. Then an opportune phone-call from a close friend lead to an afternoon of tennis, followed by lots of gossip. Have to start the dinner soon, and know that after dinner I will not have the sun-burnt energy to blog – a meme is an excellent way to keep up with #blog12daysxmas without expending too much energy or grey cells.

I have seen only 5, which doesn’t surprise me. I don’t get to the movies much. I generally catch up with the movies I wish to see when they hit Foxtel. So the flip side of this meme is the movies I finally saw last year, which were released the year before:
