'Makes Me Happy Monday"

Hello and a Happy Monday to you.

I recently won  a double pass to the movie The Help and a copy of the book.

So yesterday Ian and I went on a date, a day out by ourselves. There is no movie cinema in town so a trip to the City and the suburb of Warwick was on the cards. The movie was fantastic,lots of laughs too. Let me say here and now I don't think I will ever eat chocolate pie without remembering this movie. If anyone has a recipe for Chocolate Pie I would love to have it. I can't wait to read the book to see if they are similar.

Other things Making Me Happy this Monday are;

Some Cosmos seeds I was given are starting to bloom.
A bright yellow Dutch Iris is in bloom too.
Lots of interesting books on loan from the library.
Perfect Spring days.

Let me know what is Making you Happy this Monday.

On a blogging note I have noticed I and lots of other people  have been having a lot of trouble leaving comments on some blogs. I think it all comes down to how comments are set up on blogs. I leave comments and they completely disappear and I don't know if they appear later on. I worked out it only happens on blogs that have the comment setting at "Embedded below post" You can check on your comment settings by going to "Settings" then choose "Comments" there you have three choices:

Full Page
Pop-up Window
Embedded below post

If you have ticked "Embedded below post" this means a box will appear for your comment settings and this is where a lot of people are having trouble leaving comments. If you tick Full Page or Pop-up Window you don't have problems leaving comments. I don't know why this is happening something to do with Blogger I presume.

Happy days.

Missed out on seeing this movie. They don't seem to stay at the movies as long as they used to! I may need to suss out the book...
Sounds like you had a lovely day.
Thanks for the tip about commenting.

I have the book, but still have to read it. It might be my next!
Many things that make you happy.
What made me happy early this morning was the warm breeze in my face, even though it looks very cold.

I'm so jealous, that was the best book I've read in years and I'm busting to see the film. It's way too hard to get to the movies from here. Would you like to adopt me and take me nice places.

Karen said...

I have read the book but not seen the film yet, so it's good to hear you enjoyed the movie. I hope to see it soon.

Sounds like a perfect day out! A good movie with even better company! :)

A real happy Monday post Bev! Your Monday is coming to an end while here it is not even noon. Our start was not that happy with waterwork problems and strange men running throug the house all morning.
Have a lovely evening.

Lucky you. I really want to see this movie but was told to read the book first....guess I will have to wait for the DVD. Thanks for the heads up on the comments dilemma.

Christine M said...

I've been having comment problems lately too! It's very frustrating to leave a comment and then it disappears. This has only started happening in the last couple of days.

I saw the movie too and thought it to be one of the best I've seen in a long while. I am reading the book as well.

And I don't like chocolate pie and I am glad :)

Terriaw said...

This book is on my list to read and the movie is on my list to see. I hear they are both fabulous! I think cosmos would make me happy today too. They are such charming flowers, similar to daisies. Happy Monday to you!

Must catch up with this book soon. Sounds like a wonderful story. I had noticed it was only the embedded comment forms that were giving me trouble too. Went to Blogger help and there was a report of a fault with embedded posts for people running IE 8 or 9, and they were looking into it. Hope they fix it soon!
