Sea of Souls

on BBC1 9pm Saturday and Sunday. Starring Bill Paterson, Dawn Steele and Iain Robertson
There were clips all over BBC1 for this series and I thought it looked good and watched the first story last week. I loved it and was really surprised there’d been a previous series that I didn’t know about. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a Clyde University department of parapsychology. A bit like The X-files, but British and with a smaller budget, and no sexual tension between the male and female central characters.
Anyway, the first one was all about a girl attracting a poltergeist drawn to the dark energies of a secret in her family. And running along-side that was a different story about a guy who disappeared from a high flat due to some sort of link with his grandfather. They were both made to seem very plausible and with plenty of drama and excitement, I was really pleased I watched it.
This weekend’s episodes weren’t quite as good. The Saturday one dragged and was boring. It picked up a bit on Sunday, but I was still a little disappointed. The plot involving a soldier who was plagued with visions of his death after receiving a curse from an old woman, was interesting, but all the nifty camera moves were too try-hard and didn’t work to build any suspense. The sub-plot with Justine investigating out of body experiences was dull as it didn’t go anywhere.
I will still definitely watch the last of the trilogy; I just hope it’s back to the standard of the first episodes.

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….

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
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….
Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
