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.

10 ideas to help you get through the day
January 29, 2017
I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
