Desperate Housewives

On Channel 4:10pm Wednesdays and the next week’s episode on E4 at 11pm. Starring Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria, Nicolette Sheridan, Brenda Strong, James Denton…
Well you’ve got to watch it haven’t you! We’re all desperate for something new and exciting, but it doesn’t entirely live up to the comparisons to Sex in the City, which really was new and exciting. The first episode I loved – I couldn’t believe it – are Americans really taking the piss out of themselves? There was also the rude bits and the funny bits and the touch of suspense because something mysterious was going on. And I recommended it to everyone I know who hadn’t seen it. (My sister-in-law).
But the 2nd episode was a bit disappointing. But it picked up again this week and I am actually looking forward to the next one.
If you haven’t seen it yet, then it’s in Neighbours Style – all set in one lovely shiny new set, which looks like a street, but too shiny. The woman – all desperate housewives (all desperate for various reasons) – get together every now and then to chat, but it doesn’t get anywhere near as rude as the SATC girls. But then it couldn’t anyway as that would be too copy-cat-ish. It is narrated and told by one of the wives, who killed herself, and gradually the mystery as to why is being unravelled.
In the side-lines, one of them fancies the new guy who moved in opposite (who has a gun and a map with info on all of them taped inside his cupboard); one of them can’t cope with her energetic kids, one of them is in marriage guidance counselling because she’s turned into an obsessed perfect housewife, and one of them is shagging her gardener.
Not as much sex as we were led to believe, but never-the-less, a very good fun program to watch in the evening.

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….
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….
