    1. That is lovely, although I must admit I've never seen the original series, I was probably too young to catch it and it never aired here.

      Xmas decor ain't coming any time soon :) Maybe a week ahead of the holiday or something. Glad you are looking forward to it, we've only recently took down our Halloween decor :)

    1. I love the saga, although I haven't seen the fourth one yet. CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK was my absolute fave, one of the best sf movies ever, so carefully made and with lots of love
