The film is rated 12A which means that the film censor crew advise that you are 12 to watch it but with an accompanying adult you can see it at any age. I see a future involving the path to adult hood lengthening in England, already the school leaving age has been increased to 18 as has the age to start driving lessons. It seems so contradictory that our culture is simultaneous promoting early sexuality whilst raising the bar on entry to adult life. I have come to understand that the attitudes we have will be important in the not to distant future. I can see temptations all the way to lie about age. It is free on the train under age 5, free to enter certain amusement parks under age 3 and so on but is lying about your age the right approach? When it comes to pubs, night clubs, porn films and having sex? At this stage it becomes a bigger deal. There are those that believe that any legislation at all is inappropriate in this area.
Anyway, that was last night, this morning I whizzed up to the butchers first thing and shortly after I returned my in-laws, the children's paternal grandparents, arrived, just after 9am. We had a while at home then headed to Sea Lane Cafe in Goring for a gorgeous lunch inside and ice cream outside in the wind!
This afternoon I helped S & E with their Halloween match box swaps, drank tea and chatted. I have been sensible this time and filed away the photos, as last time I thoughtlessly uploaded them before our swap partners little package had arrived in the post so you'll have to wait to see them.
