Miss Happiness and Miss Flower

I seem to be having a bit of a Rummer Godden week, first I find
the Black Narcissus DVD then whilst browsing for vintage
Not a vintage copy unfortunately but I bought it anyway.
I started reading it as soon as I got home and was instantly enchanted.
It was magical
and now I wish I had a Miss Happiness and Miss Flower of my very own.

Black Narcissus

Popping into Tesco this morning I noticed piles of DVD's of the 1940's film

Black Narcissus

being given away with the Daily Mail.

It was one of my Grandmother's favourite films and at the cost of 50p for a paper I'll be induging in nostalgic film viewing later today.
