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.

What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
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….
