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 🙂

Shown on BBC1, Fridays 9pm. Written and directed by Ben Elton. Starring Ardel O’Hanion (Father Ted) and Mel Giedroyc (as in ‘Mel and Sue’)

This is actually a hilarious comedy from Ben Elton. Some might think that a program about a couple coping with two young children has already been done before; and it probably has, but not properly like this one. Have you ever actually seen a mother carrying a bit of post-pregnancy weight, and with wet patches on her top from leaky nipples? Somehow this series actually manages to be original by dealing with the actual genuine issues that parents have to deal with; like the stress caused when your toddler loses his special teddy/blanket etc.

The only thing that lets it down is the character called Ronnie whose part is seriously overracted and the word ‘tasteful’ is said far too much.

If you haven’t caught this sitcom yet, watch it this Friday as, if you’ve had children, I’m sure you’ll love it. If you haven’t, I expect you’ll be too smug to bother trying to relate to the main characters!

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall

Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
