Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple

4:50 From Paddington. Starring Geraldine McEwan, Jenny Agutter, Tasha Bertham, Rob Brydon, Pam Ferris, John Hanna, Amanda Holden, Griff Rhys Jones

Oh I’m so cross that I missed the first 2 episodes of this series of 4. I’m becoming a bigger and bigger fan of murder mysteries! But I especially love the old fashioned ones like Miss Marple, with the good old steam trains and massive posh houses. The whole seeing the murder from the train alongside thing, and the victim calling out the name of the killer when everyone thinks they’re calling that person for help, has been done a bit too often, and I was disappointed that I guessed whodoneit right from the start. However, it didn’t spoil the enjoyment as to why, and there were enough twists and turns to get me lost, and then back on track again.
Amanda Holden did a great posh accent and I loved her character – shame she chose the boring policeman over the dishy American though! And it was great to see all the other brilliant British actors and as it was set at Christmas, I hope this will be one repeated in the holidays again in a couple of years when I’ve forgotten what happens.

Ps Is there any murder mystery series that hasn’t been filmed at that house? I’ve definitely seen it in Morse and Waking the Dead.

PPS God the ITV website is terrible! In trying to find out where the house is and whether it’s National Trust or not, I do a search for Agatha Christie and Miss Marple and nothing comes up – not even in their TV guide when there’s another episode on next Sunday! And it was really slow.

Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
Is it time to start making an effort?
November 23, 2016
Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
