Hex

Sky one Sunday evenings, repeated on Saturday.

Witchcraft at a posh boarding school.

I’ve just caught the first episode of this new drama series, which has apparently been compared to with Buffy the Vampire slayer. Well, I haven’t watched Buffy, so I can’t really comment on that, but I really liked it.
A girl at some sort of posh boarding school, Cassie, played by Christina Cole; discovers she has strange powers, is haunted by people who lived on the estate long ago and who need a sacrifice. Then, whilst having no friends amongst the trendy crowd, she has an argument with her best friend, Thelma (a lesbian), played by Jemima Rooper (recognised as Nicki from ‘As If.’) whom she’d been leading on. Thelma then turns up dead, in a lake after dreaming she was killed by some demon type guy.
I have to admit, I was surprised it was English. I’d be interested to know if the Americans are going to see of it, and what they think.
I’m definitely going to carry on watching this, but the first, feature length episode might have been a bit more engaging. There was a lot of setting the scene, and although there was brief confusion at what was going on with her mind, I would have thought Carrie would be a bit more surprised that she could set things alight and move things around just by looking at them. And from a story-telling point of view, they should have ended this episode with a bit more suspense – perhaps when Thelma went missing. They might have guaranteed a few more viewers in tomorrow’s episode.
I hope this takes off. I’m looking forward to seeing some good performances from Colin Salmon and the other teacher who I know off the telly, but can’t place right now (will edit when I find out- something like Cold Feet). I also love anything witchy. Halloween is well places to launch this series. I liked the portrayal of the school – in an old and mysterious setting, but with the students being cool and modern. I think it’s going to be good.

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
