I bought myself a new Disney compilation CD a week or so ago. Granted, it was a CD where most of the tracks were in French but listening to it and getting caught up in the music got me thinking about which songs I play the most (French and English) and I could describe as… Continue reading Favourite Disney Songs
Hello! Or bonjour, I should say as I am diving into one of the French-inspired Disney classics for Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books today with The Hunchback of Notre Dame and specifically, God Help The Outcasts, arguably my favourite song from the film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQO4TtmmwNc It's a beautiful track with messages about beating the injustices of everyday society and showing… Continue reading Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books: God Help The Outcasts

I don't shy from that. I'm all for the positivity that Disney brings and… Continue reading WDAS Life Lessons – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
I'm always one to talk about all the books I've read and things I've crocheted over the months but I rarely talk about film and tv, which is silly as I have a whole category on this blog dedicated to film and tv. I think as I rarely bother with the huge programmes or take… Continue reading The Most Recent Films I’ve Watched and Loved!
