Toy Story 3

Since we moved into our new flat my daughter and I have made a point of having a bit of fun on Saturdays. We decided that Saturday evenings should be a time when we sit down, watched a film, eat takeaway and just enjoy each others company for an hour or two.

As we have no fun-money the only real expense is renting the DVD, takeaway normally consists of a shop bought and home cooked pizza or a chicken box, the sort you can get in Iceland or Farm Foods, but it feels like a takeaway. If we have the latter we normally get some oven chips as a side dish. We also have ice cream to finish off our meal. Obviously we do all this eating whilst watching our chosen film which tonight was Toy Story 3 (hence the title).

Already we have both come to look forward to our Saturday evenings when we end up doing the same thing for once as normally we very rarely watch the same TV programme and she certainly doesn’t enjoy my taste in music! Therefore, although we spend a lot of time in each others company we are rarely doing the same thing at the same time.

We never pre-plan these evenings, instead we just go down the shops around 3 in the afternoon, rent which ever film we fancy, get our food, again mood plays a big part in this, then we go home and look forward to 7 o’clock which has become our film watching time. The lights go off and we couch out, eating, talking and in this evenings case, laughing.

For me these evenings are precious as I know she will not want to spend Saturday evenings with her dad for much longer (she is 14 going on 21). Here’s to next Saturday.


  1. Awwwwwh Dad. ^.^

  2. lovely. time with my Dad when a kid (more of a kid) are memories that i cherish, thanks for the reminder. half a world away and six months from him, this pulled on my heart.

  3. Lovely and precious times…Trevor you are a rich man…in love and laughter..
    I haven’t seen ToyStory3 yet…It’s a must see for me…My kind of film…Have you seen UP? sad but marvellous..xPenx

    • I keep trying to convince my daughter that we should get UP one Saturday but she insists it’s a kids film! I’m the biggest kid in the area so I’ll keep persisting because I’ve wanted to watch it for ages.
