Bridget Jones 2 The Edge of Reason

Starring Rennee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. From the novel by Helen Fielding. Directed by Beeban Kidron

I haven’t read the book so I can only comment on this as the film itself; which I loved. To do a sequel like this is very brave as they often end up really crap, but this doesn’t and I think actually it’s better than the first.
Although it’s the same relationship problems, and some of the situations are a bit obvious (the inevitable boring lawyers’ dinner; pretending to be able to ski when she can’t really.) the way Rennee Zellweger plays Bridget in a hilarious but completely believable way takes over all that. I used to be a bit annoyed about an American playing a British part – but they have to do that to get the American audience (and money) and she does do it well.
There’s not a lot I can say about it really as you may not have seen it yet. But I would say it’s well worth the trip to the cinema. But perhaps take the girls rather than your boyfriend.

Ps. Did you realise her friend called Jude is the same actress as Moaning Myrtle in Harry Potter?!

Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)

I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
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….
