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.

Review of Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, London
A review of Agatha Christie’s play, Witness for the Prosecution, at County Hall, London
April 28, 2018
It was my birthday last week. And it was a big one. The kind with a zero. The weekend afterwards I celebrated with my family (which was lovely – look out for the vlog coming soon!) and I’m in the process of organising a day my friends are free at the same time to celebrate with them (I am determined to milk this for as long as possible!), but for my actual birthday day, I wanted to do something special. All the time the kids were young, I hardly bothered celebrating my birthday, but although we have had a couple of days out in more recent years, this time I really wanted to make it count. So, I went online to see what theatre productions are on in London at the moment. I’ll be honest, I wavered and nearly didn’t bother with the whole idea because my god, it’s expensive isn’t it? And why can’t they tell you the price of tickets until after you’ve given half your personal details, chosen the date and studied the seating plan?! We were also limited by the type of thing we’d all be interested in. Something we’d all love is of course The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, but at £1160 for the four of us to see both parts that day, we decided our Harry Potter fan-ship can be shown with Primark mugs and slippers (that wear through in 3 weeks) instead! However, something else we all enjoy watching on the telly together is Agatha Christie adaptations, and when I found out that Witness for the Prosecution was being played in an actual courtroom, that tipped the balance over Mousetrap (which I’m pretty hopeful will still be on for my 50th birthday!) and I booked the tickets….
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
