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,

Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
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…..
Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
