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.

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….
Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
