Imelda Staunton.... Vera Drake looks everso like my Great Granny Carstairs. Right down to the floral pinny and ever-present cup of tea.

How funny - she looks like my Great Aunt Eva! I recorded the film last night to watch when my husband is out (not his kind of film).

Wasn't she brilliant in it - I was channel hopping last night and caught the start of it, and she was so compelling that I watched it all the way through. And yes, didn't grannies always have those housecoats with safety pins pinned to them (for no apparent reason, just in case someone needed one).

All about me

My photo
Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
