Hex

On Sky One on Sundays at 9pm starring Christina Cole, Jemima Rooper and Laura Piper

I marked this in my diary as soon as I got the date for the second series of Hex and I’m so pleased this time it’s got a decent thirteen episodes. The budget must have increased as the effects were better too.

If you haven’t seen it before, you can catch up from the dvd of the first series (£24.99 in Sainsburys; or Amazon) and actually I think you would need to watch it to understand what’s going on; but I’m sure you’ll get into it even if you haven’t.

The first episode wasn’t a disappointment and continued the story about the mysterious pregnancy. I like the fact that Cassie’s teacher, played Anna Wilson-Jones, is now involved too. I love that there is more interraction with Thelma now that this new character has come along; though no one quite knows what she is yet. I wonder if the other ghost that appeared briefly at the end of last series will return?

I do have a few critisisms though. Mainly – I was hugely disappointed with Thelma’s change of costume. I fully understand that she wants to be wearing something different (though I still want that dress) ; but honestly – a leaperd print camisole type top and skinny cropped jeans???? Thelma’s character would never wear something as mainstream fashionable as that, and I really hope she finds another dead person to exchange clothes with soon.

Also, the makers of Hex have got to understand that although we love it, and are willing to go along with the fantasy of it – some things have really got to be explained. Some really obvious things like although we know other people can’t see Thelma, but can they hear her? She made a pretty big noise with the dustbin outside the church in this episode, so did Jo hear her? And (really overdue for an answer on this one) Why don’t people notice Cassie talking to thin air (When she’s talking to Thelma)? Is it really some kind of telepathy speaking?

And they mentioned that Cassie’s boyfriend didn’t come back, but didn’t say why. And is the new blonde girl a different actress but the same character, or a different character in that group of friends? We can accept lesbian ghosts and ancient devil things, but we need some basic explanations please.

Still, a highlight in my television week, and Sky 1 are on to a winner here.

Entertainment, TV,

mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
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….
Facial piercings
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….
