Aidan was due for a feed just as the movie was starting so as I got set up to feed him a small group of kids, aged about 7-11 sat down right near my little glass booth… and stared. I of course had just lifted my shirt. Perfect timing, I couldn’t do anything but smile and continue on. Thankfully because I didn’t make a big deal out of it they lost interest. That said I don’t want you all to go thinking that I was flashing my boobies about like they had tassels on them, it was all very discret and after 2 minutes the lights went out.
I went to the movies a lot when I was pregnant. Towards the end Wez and I were going once a week, seeing everything from romance, animations, 3D, horror… anything that looked good on the day. I’m sure we’d seen over 15 movies. He was the only one of my local mates who put up with my baby brain, puffy ankles and constant baby talk on a regular basis. I will be forever grateful.Since having Aidan I’ve missed my weekly fantasy fix, not to mention the mandatory Malteasers. So after a week of to and fro in my head I bundled Aidan up and set of to watch Julie & Julia. A movie about cooking (current obsession, more about that later) and blogging… HELLO, my kinda movie! Steve wasn’t “feeling the best” so he stayed home. To be honest I’m glad because he obviously needed some solo chill out time and as weird as it sounds I actually enjoy going to the movies alone… I had Aidan but he can’t talk lol.The Richmond Regent Cinema is so old but in a funky vintage kinda way. I love all the red velvet and brass detailing. Of course I wasn’t sitting out there with the lucky people. I found myself in a tiny little room, enough for 4 adults and some small children but that’s about it. A big pane of glass, the bottom half covered in tiny sticky handprints, let me view the movie in soundproof comfort. Thankfully I had the whole room to myself but that’s not surprising since it was 3pm on a Sunday.
I’m so glad I went to the movies because the movie was like a big warm hug and I related to it much more than I thought I would. I’m also glad because I did something I didn’t think I’d be able to do for a long time and you know what, he was great. He fed, burped, spewed a little, dropped his dummy on the popcorn floor (thank goodness I packed a second) then I popped him in his Woombie and he went to sleep. I then got to watch the rest of the movie uninterupted. I can’t wait to do it again!
