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,

My Cornwall photo on canvas! Printed by Printerpix
October 6, 2016
Chris and I are very fussy about art for our walls, and we don’t always have the same taste. We compromise by never ending up getting anything! However, when the opportunity came up to have one of my photographs blown up and printed onto canvas, I was really excited by it. I have a massive 60% discount code at Printerpix for you at the end of this post. I chose a picture I took during our recent campervan trip to Cornwall. The old disused mine is easy to find on the North coast road near Morvah. It’s a popular spot for rock-climbers and hundreds passed us on the footpath towards the cliffs, lugging their gear with them. It was fairly early in the morning when we went photo-spotting, and I turned away from the sea and looked back at this ruined mine building….
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
