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.

Entertainment, Films,

Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
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…..
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
