I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Big Fish


The story is about a son trying to learn more about his dying father by reliving stories and myths his father told him about himself.

Directed by Tim Burton; Writing credits (WGA) Daniel Wallace (novel) John August (screenplay)
Starring Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lange, Helena Bonham Carter

It is so refreshing to watch an original and entertaining story. A proper story, where it doesn’t matter if it makes sense or not, and then that very concept woven into a clever, funny, and sad plot.
If you’ve seen the clips, then you may be expecting something a bit more extraordinary, and perhaps even, more funny, but I’d forgotten the clips until the moments cropped up in the films, so this didn’t bother me at all. My advice is; watch the film no matter what. And make all boring parents and old farts and head-teachers and accountants watch it; it might bring them just a little bit of spirit.

On the more mundane side; Ewan McGregor’s American accent was just fine, and luckily he didn’t’ smile too much (cringe at memories of Moulin Rouge). And Helena Bonham Carter dressed at a witch was great and the family scenes were effective without being sloppy-sentimental.

Entertainment, Films,

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
