Firefly Lane

Ugh.

Netflix released this show called Firefly Lane, which I understand is based on a book. I watched season 1 during the nights of cluster feeding when my second was a newborn.

They released season 2 this week, and let me tell you.. I BINGED that show.

I watched it all the way until 5:30am!

Usually I would never do something so BOLD as pull an all-nighter now that I am a mum of a 3 year old and a 1 year old, but it so happened that both my kids were awake. Wide awake. Some secret demon whispered things into their ears and sewed mischief into their bedclothes, because those two little rugrats played hide and seek and sang songs ALL NIGHT.

No amount of rocking, lullabying, shushing or bottom-patting helped.

They opened their eyes to the witching hour and it bewitched them.

So I let them have at it, truth told. I popped them both into my bed, turned the lights off, and sat next to them watching Firefly Lane on my phone, while they climbed and played and sang. UNTIL 5AM.

By then I had like twenty minutes left of the final episode so I watched that and then went to bed.

I don’t know why I like it so much. It’s so alluring. It tells the story of two girls/women who have been best friends since childhood, and how their friendship expands, blossoms and is challenged into adulthood. So much chemistry though, so much detail, and I really like the colours and costumes.

Anyway.

It’s a good job that happened on Saturday night.

  1. We loved it also! So far, we have watched two episodes of the second season. Will be watching it every night until we’re done. There is something addictive about the story. And I think they do a good job with the characters… They’re endearing.🌺
