Last night Youngest and I headed off to the movies (I know, twice in one week!) to see "Snow White and the Huntsman."

It was better than I expected, more the Brothers Grimm than the Disney version.  The effects were fantastic, it was very absorbing.

Youngest is not a great fan of Kristen Stewart (who plays Snow White), didn't rate her at all as Twilight's Bella but she was okay in this movie although a little passive for a character that is ultimately so powerful.

But Charlize Theron, OMG. Fabulous. And the outfits....amazing, so detailed and clever. The crown of spikes and the cloak of raven's wings. Gorgeous and malevolent.

After, we went to a favourite restaurant that has just opened a indoor/outdoor bar area. It was chock-a-block so we grabbed a table in the bar area and despite the cold outside, it was toasty warm. Two guitarists were singing some of my favourite songs (Daryl Braithwaite's Horses, Crowded House, Cold Chisel as ballads).

Youngest was singing along, enjoying herself immensely. It was the perfect start to the weekend.
