What You Waiting For

by Gwen Stefani
I think this woman is fantastic! Never mind the music – she deserves full credit for being able to dance and strut around in those towering high heels.
This debut solo single is a brilliant first track to get everyone’s attention. I hope the rest are going to be so good. It must be difficult to launch yourself as a solo female performer and be original, but Gwen seems to do this effortlessly. Her voice is totally unique and she’s one of the very few people these days who sings live on Top of the Pops, proving that her talent and funny warbling notes aren’t made up in the studio. I also love her performances and the effort she goes to entertain us – the costumes and the set design and the dancing. I saw No Doubt at Glastonbury a few years ago and I’ve never seen so much energy on stage!
The music video is equally interesting, in which Gwen takes on the various characters from Alice in Wonderland – mixed in with scenes of her making up the song at the piano in some sort of studio. Again, it’s lively and interesting and I’m very impressed.

Entertainment, Music,

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….
Review of Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, London
A review of Agatha Christie’s play, Witness for the Prosecution, at County Hall, London
April 28, 2018
It was my birthday last week. And it was a big one. The kind with a zero. The weekend afterwards I celebrated with my family (which was lovely – look out for the vlog coming soon!) and I’m in the process of organising a day my friends are free at the same time to celebrate with them (I am determined to milk this for as long as possible!), but for my actual birthday day, I wanted to do something special. All the time the kids were young, I hardly bothered celebrating my birthday, but although we have had a couple of days out in more recent years, this time I really wanted to make it count. So, I went online to see what theatre productions are on in London at the moment. I’ll be honest, I wavered and nearly didn’t bother with the whole idea because my god, it’s expensive isn’t it? And why can’t they tell you the price of tickets until after you’ve given half your personal details, chosen the date and studied the seating plan?! We were also limited by the type of thing we’d all be interested in. Something we’d all love is of course The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, but at £1160 for the four of us to see both parts that day, we decided our Harry Potter fan-ship can be shown with Primark mugs and slippers (that wear through in 3 weeks) instead! However, something else we all enjoy watching on the telly together is Agatha Christie adaptations, and when I found out that Witness for the Prosecution was being played in an actual courtroom, that tipped the balance over Mousetrap (which I’m pretty hopeful will still be on for my 50th birthday!) and I booked the tickets….
