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 Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
What it’s like to be an Introvert
October 20, 2016
Move over anxiety; being an introvert is the new fashionable difficulty! I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
