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.

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!…..
What it’s like to be an Introvert
October 20, 2016
Move over anxiety; being an introvert is the new fashionable difficulty! I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..
