Wimbledon

A tennis romance directed by Richard Loncraine
I’m sure it would’ve been worth saving this film for a release in June. Maybe the dvd will come out then, but it would’ve done so much better I’m sure.
I absolutely love Paul Bettany – ever since his bare bum graced our screens in The Knight’s Tale – and then finding out from the commentary on the dvd that he has a big willy (they had to tape it to his thigh to stop it from showing between his legs ;o) his appeal is even greater. But he’s probably better known for his roles in A Beautiful Mind and Dogville. And here he is joined by Kirsten Dunst (well known in Spiderman) and they make a beautiful couple.
Some of the tennis scenes can drag on a bit – especially the final one, but then with a title such as Wimbledon, you’d have to expect this really, and it’s a necessary part of the suspense. It would be nice to say that even if you don’t like tennis, you’d like this film, but I’m not sure I can. I suppose if you like any sort of romance, then you’d like it anyway. Most girls would enjoy it – even if just to gaze at Paul and imagine his willy!
I’m probably not doing a very professional review here! I’m not actually a very big fan of romantic comedies – especially American ones, but as this is mostly English, and it’s not trying all that hard to be funny; this is definitely one of my favourites. Like I said before – they should’ve released it in June as it would’ve got more people interested in the tournament, and a certain amount of drive and ambition did rub off on me. It made me want to pick up a tennis racquet again. I haven’t played since I was at school – so I think this was a successful film.

Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent

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….
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
