Lost

On Channel 4 at 10pm on Wednesdays. Drama about a bunch of people who get stuck on an island after their plane crashes. Amongst others, starring, Mathew Fox, Evangeline Lilliy, Dominic Monaghan, Maggie Grace and Naveen Andrews.

We spent an entire weekend doing little else other than watch back to back episodes of Lost, the program everyone’s talking about. If you’re still not sure whether to start watching it too – then read this..
I sat and watched this till 4am over a weekend after we got back from holiday. My advice is – don’t get the dvd from America – it’s so damn good, I wish now that I’d watched it weekly on the telly so I had something to look forward to each week. This is the best drama I’ve seen on telly for a long time; it’s fantastic! There are episode guides on the channel 4 website, so start watching it now if you haven’t already!!

There is drama enough in the whole set up of this series – a group of strangers who have to try and get rescued and then try and survive – but there’s more mystery to it than that. I was really surprised by this element of things as it wasn’t shown in the clips. There’s excellent suspense running through the series (hence 4am bedtime 3 nights in a row!) and intruiging characters whom we get to know through several clips of flashbacks. Each main character gets their turn and each is very illuminating.

I can’t wait till the second series though – not all questions were answered at the end!

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….
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….
Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
