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.

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
Feather & Black in Bath, Somerset
Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
