It’s no great secret about how much I love my sleep. Those around me will know just how cranky I am if I have had a bad night with one of the children. I can always remember one of my friends telling me that you get used to the sleep deprivation once you have children. Well, they were wrong – some ten years later and I’m still as irritable and awful to be around if I am tired. This is the same for the other advice I received whilst pregnant to sleep when the baby sleeps… Oh, how I wish I could enjoy a nana nap when Piglet goes down for her mid-morning nap.

James Cameron’s “Titanic” is an epic, action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic; the pride and joy of the White Star Line and, at the time, the largest moving object ever built. She was the most luxurious liner of her era — the “ship of dreams” — which ultimately carried over 1,500 people to their death in the ice cold waters of the North Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912.
When mysterious Vianne and her child arrive in a tranquil French town in the winter of 1959, no one could have imagined the impact that she and her spirited daughter would have on the community stubbornly rooted in tradition. Within days, she opens an unusual chocolate shop, across the square from the church. Her ability to perceive her customers’ desires and satisfy them with just the right confection, coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation — just as Lent begins.
