Afterlife

ITV Saturdays 9:05pm Written by Charlie Fletcher. Starring Lesley Sharp and Andrew Lincoln (Teachers)

This series is unfortunately disappointing. I watched the first episode four weeks ago and thought it looked good, but I missed the next couple of weeks, and watched it again on Saturday.

It is about a psychic woman who moved house for a new start and to try and escape the voices from the dead. Sadly for her, they don’t go away, and she comes accross Robert, a pschology teacher and writer, and the ghost of his dead son. Each week there’s a different story and different characters get involved.

I feel there is a certain mis-casting – sorry to say Lesley Sharp seems far too miserable as Alison. Granted, she would be miserable with screaming dead babies waking her up all the time; but even when she’s angry she seems to have the same expression. There needs to be something more likeable about the main character really, but perhaps it’s not clear whether it’s the fault of the actress or the director.

This is a series with a great idea, but I couldn’t help thinking, this is one rare case where the Americans would have done it better.

Radio Times mentioned last week’s episode that I missed, was terrifying, so I may give it another go, but I may not.

Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
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….
