more mad marvy confessions of Georgia Nicolson. By Louise Rennison

As expected this is another completely and utterly funny book in the Georgia Nicolson series with many laugh out loud moments and I loved it. I actually wonder if adults love these books even more than the teenagers they are intended for, just because it really makes us feel young again and reminds us how lovely and carefree life was, way back when…

Anyway, if you pick up this book, (and I think I said this in my review of Dancing in my Nuddy Pants) you must persevere past the first 20 pages or so because in all this book’s fabulosity, I was full of exhaustiosity (that one was on the first page!) with all the vair vair annoying osities and other variations of words that seemed to be in every sentence. I was beginning to think that it would be full of miraculosity (p9) if I got past page 19. “Ointmosity” (p10) for god’s sake!!

It felt far too forced at the beginning and if it hadn’t been for the fact that I knew I enjoyed a previous Rennison book, I would have given up and not bothered with it. So you are warned, but she does calm down a lot and the osities start to go in places where they seem natural. And it’s just so worth reading, because it’s such a happy, funny book. Don’t expect a plot though; as usual!

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
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…..
Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
