We are off to a great start!
I’ve already accidentally posted a Grey Watches without a proper fucking title. Hello Grey Watches // Christmas Template what are you doing on my blog??? Oh right, I forgot to rename my post about The Princess Switch. Good job Greyson.
This what happens when you’re cat sitting for 12
YES TWELVE cats and they like to keep you awake for hours.
I swear I’m actually enjoying the cat sitting, I could just do without the lack of sleep part.
I’ve also decided that 4 reviews in one month is way too much pressure for someone who doesn’t always like writing reviews and also, no I don’t want to pick up a book and write notes about it when I’m exhausted and have 12 cats wanting my attention, thank you very much. I want to watch a movie with 4 of them on my lap at once instead.
So, mostly all my Christmas reading has happened at work and sometimes on the train but also I have read far more audiobooks than necessary because I’m exhausted and they’re just so much easier sometimes.
Basically I’m telling you all this so I can use it as an excuse for why I’m changing my posting schedule for this month.
Top Ten Tuesday will continue as normal, but sometimes I’l be doing Top 5 Tuesday instead, depending on which topic I prefer.
Grey Watches will still be on Thursdays.
But instead of a review every single Saturday, like I was planning, I’ll be alternating between extra Grey Watches and reviews.
As you can probably tell by the title I actually remembered to change, today you’re getting an extra Grey Watches.
I should be going to sleep because I was woken up by cats at 5:30 this morning, when I didn’t need to get up until 8:30 and the the reason I was getting up at 8:30 on a Sunday was because I was going to go cherry picking but when I called they were closed because of the stupid fucking rain.
IT’S SUMMER WHY IS IT RAINING.
I’ve never been mad about it raining, not ever.
Welcome to my rant before I even start the bloody movie.
Anyway, earlier this week you got to see me get all sappy over The Princess Switch which I enjoyed far more than I thought I would. Now it’s time for The Knight Before Christmas which I’m watching the same night as TPS because why not???

Past Grey Watches
That forest is so pretty. I just want to run through it and carry out some ancient spell.
I added a splash of orange juice to my wine and now I get why mimosa’s are a thing, this shit is delicious.
I wonder what this will taste like with cherry liquor.
Might have to try that next.
I’m just really sad I didn’t get to pick my cherries today and instead nearly fell asleep while doing my food shopping and then got home and passed out for a couple of hours.
Sorry thought I was done complaining about how my plans for the day totally went to shit. Apparently I was not.
Vanessa Hudgens is so pretty
Ah yes, we got a witch in the forest
That’s a bit rude, talking to the woman who just told you that you could become a real knight like that
I love the trope of a person thrusted into a world that isn’t theirs. it’s never not funny to me.
If I knew Christmas romances provided all these tropes I loved I wouldn’t have avoided them for so long!
Ahahaha her niece asks for a non-cheating boyfriend for her.
Vanessa’s Christmas movies love having a girl sidekick
Oh no, she’s gonna hit the knight with her car
And there she goes.
Honestly how fucking crazy would it be being a 14th century knight waking up in 2019, in a different country
Ah gotta have the obligatory shirtless scene
‘Just realised I got a fire to put out.’
what a way to end a phone call.
Wait he was trying to cook a skunk?????
I think she should have let him threaten her cheating ex with the sword, just a little.
Are they playing a Netflix holiday movie in a Netflix holiday movie again???
Of course they fucking are
How can a teacher afford a house with a guest house????
That’s the most unbelievable part of this movie
‘What do you think of these awesome new threads? They’re straight fire!’
Fucking lost it
OMG he put Alexa in the freezer
‘Modern technology is Lit AF’
This is funnier than The Princess Switch
So she’s living in her parents home? That’s why she can afford an expensive house.
I love that Cole keeps referring to Brooke’s ex as The Douche.
Letting him use her car was a TERRIBLE IDEA!!!!
On what planet was that an okay???
Oh, he’s looking for the witch but now she’s not Mrs Claus anymore
So Brooke’s mum and dad got a Christmas decoration from Aldovia, the kingdom from The Christmas Prince, so they exist in the same ‘world’ then.
Imagine a cross over! I’d be down for that.
Better yet, a cross over with The Princess Switch.
Wait, OMG, what if that’s what The Princess Switch 2 will be???
So now he’s fighting the Christmas decorations
‘The scoundrel James did—how would you put it? Really did a number on your self-esteem babe.’
He’s so wholesome, I love him.
This one might be one of my new fave Christmas movies
Nothing will every beat Jim Carry’s Grinch though
OMG, Brooke’s niece is so sweet, giving her friend her gloves.
OH, so Claire’s friend’s family is gonna be part of his quest
Cole really loves the hot chocolate ahahah
Oh no, Cole is taste testing all the bread
Oh no, Claire’s missing
Or I guess his quest is just to fall in love
Aw, Brooke’s sister got Cole mead
I fucking knew it, the quest involves Claire’s friend’s family
OMG, will these two kiss already???
Aw, they treated the family to an early christmas
Okay I’m crying now
Aw, the neighbour who was crushing on Cole gave him the mistletoe for him to save for Brooke
WTF HE’S NOT MEANT TO GOOOOO
His brother is so sweet
HE’S GONNA GO BACK TO HER
Claire got her puppy
That was kind of an anti-climactic ending though
Oh shit the witch is getting to the younger brother
Wait, does that mean we get a sequel???
