Getting Through The First Day
In the end, I went out to see the late afternoon showing of "The King's Speech", starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter. It was a welcome distraction and incredibly well done. All of the actors are brilliant. I was most amused to see the actor Timothy Spall, who played the villainous Nathaniel in "Enchanted", as Winston Churchill in this movie (he did an amazing job) and I enjoyed the irony of Anthony Andrews playing the British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin at the time of Kind Edward VIII's abdication, when he himself had played Edward in the 1988 movie, The Woman He Loved, with Jane Seymour as Wallis Simpson.
But now I am home again and missing my boy.
