Swashbuckling and Cantering into Spring

There’s a new hero in our house and his name is Puss in Boots.

The kids are obsessed with him and the great thing is that he appeals to all of them, from age 3 to 5 and right through to 7. I've also been known to sit through an episode myself with them - and enjoy it too.

He’s cool, he’s fast, he’s strong and he’s a better swordsman than Zorro. On top of that, he’s funny and cute – well he is a cat after all – and he wears cool little boots and a rather fetching hat. What’s not to like?!

We heart him.

So we were delighted when Netflix released the first five episodes of the new series of The Adventures of Puss in Boots last month, which the kids have watched ad nauseum ever since.

But Netflix is teasing us a little...

Apparently there are 26 episodes in the first season, each 22-minutes long, but we don't know when the next batch of 5 will be released. Whatever happened to the much-loved Netflix strategy of bulk release every episode all at once for binge-TV obsessive fun?

For us grown-ups, February is a huge month on Netflix, with two big TV hitters: Better Call Saul and House of Cards: Season 3. We can’t wait until the dastardly exploits of Francis and Claire Underwood come back onto our TV later this month. What else could they possibly do to shock us?

Along with the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, it’s going to make the cold, dark nights far more enjoyable until we hit summer.

In the meantime, Spring (yes February is classed as spring in Ireland!) is seeing us all going a bit swashbuckling in our house. And our youngest doesn't walk anywhere anymore, he canters around like a cute baby horse. I've started copying him as it's so much more fun than walking. Cantering is the new cool!

And Puss in Boots too, of course.
