I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Fahrenheit 9/11

Produced, Driected and Starring Michael Moore. Shown on Channel 4, 27th January.
Well I had to watch this didn’t I. I watched Bowling for Columbine and I was shocked by it, and I was expecting to be shocked by this film too. But I wasn’t really – probably because the war was heavily covered by the media already, much of it was already known. The most interesting thing was Bush’s business connections and how much that influenced the running of America. The investigation into that was more compelling than the second half of the film.
Some of it was unnecessary – I felt a lot of time was wasted with things like the OAP who had FBI on his doorstep for talking about the war. (Interesting, yes, but not that important) The sort of things that would go on the Extras on a dvd, but not in the actual film.
The coverage of the soldiers serving in Iraq and the grieving family who lost a son made me angry and sad; but again, nothing I didn’t understand already. However this film is likely to be watched by those in power in America, and if they had chosen to ignore scenes like those in the past, it would hopefully get their attention with this.
It showed most profoundly what a complete idiot President George W Bush is, and it really makes you wonder why anyone at all in America could choose to vote for him again.

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….
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
