Planes 2: Fire & Rescue

The winter cold and flu season has hit us with a vengeance, so what better week to receive a copy of Disney’s Planes 2: Fire & Rescue (just released on DVD) to keep us entertained? OK, so we’ve never actually seen the first Planes movie but MJ loves Cars and Cars 2 and the Planes films are basically a spin-off that continues the franchise in a similar vein. Plus, we’ve been exposed to (and by various means have acquired) so much Planes merchandise over the last couple of years that the main character, Dusty Crophopper, was already a household name for us.

Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red – Tower of London

This week we joined the hordes of people visiting the Tower of London to see the flood of ceramic poppies installed to mark the centenary of the First World War.

The poppies will be removed gradually following Armistice Day. Details here
