Ended up taking them to the cinema today to see the Pirates movie – thought it would be great because its from the creators of the fantastic Wallace & Gromit but sadly, its not that good. It was funny in parts and the animation is excellent but the story lags a bit and the kids got bored. They wanted to go home before it was over and so did some of the other kids in the cinema, it was not as captivating as I had hoped!!
Also, cost me 4 euro more than the last time we were at the cinema in Drogheda in February and I asked the girl why it had gone up from 17 to 20.40 cent and she said it was the VAT hike – er, that was in December, I was there in Feb and it was only 17. Rip off Ireland everywhere you go….
