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.

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
The Beauty Bargain you need to know about today!
January 7, 2017
I am a fan of Boots No 7 beauty products – on the whole they work very well for my skin, so I was pleased to spot this gift pack in the Boots January sale called the No 7 Beautiful Skin Collection. Originally £14, it’s now half price at £7, which makes this a real bargain. It contains small size tubes and bottles of Radiance Exfoliator; Day Cream; Night Cream and Cleansing Lotion. But the main one to note is the full size bottle of Overnight Revitalising Eye Balm. The same size retails normally at £12, so if this is a product you’re likely to use, then the whole pack is an absolute steal. I’ve just bought two packs! My local Boots had stacks the other day, but only a few today, so get out quick to grab this while you can! Or I’ve just found it online. On a side note, they’re also doing a three for two on Boots No 7 beauty products in their usual price range at the moment and you’ve got one more day to use the £5 off beauty products and £3 off make-up vouchers they’re handing out at the till. (You’d have to work out if the three for two is better value as you can’t use both offers at the same time.) So there you are – just a very quick beauty tip I thought you might like to know about!
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
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….
