The Snow Queen

a BBC television film of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale

We recorded this as we knew there was no way we we’d be watching the telly on Christmas Day morning; and to be honest, I really shouldn’t have bothered! I feel guilty in saying it, because I can imagine how long and hard the makers of this worked, but the actualy film didn’t match how exciting the trailers on telly made it look.

It wasn’t that it was bad. It was actually good, but so incredibly boring! Even the most cultured of upper class children would not have been amused by it! As an exercise in layering cumputer generated images with real actors, it was a success; although the effect took a little getting used to; I would have got used to it had it interested me. It was basically classical music, with the odd song telling us what was going on, and the occasional snippit of dialogue which was even dubbed over by Juliet Stevenson and Patrick Stewar instead of having the voices of the real children who had the struggle of acting almost entirely with a green screen behind them. I was looking forward to watching this, but I’m afraid to say I found it dull and uninteresting.

Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….

Cath Kidston gift ideas for Mothers’ Day
February 28, 2018
I was given this beautiful set of Cath Kidston hand creams and some beautiful Gift Baskets for Women for my birthday last year, and it occurred to me what a lovely gift anything by Cath Kidston would be for Mothering Sunday. Now, oddly enough, this gift also has been listed as one of the best gifts for tattoo artists, which quite left me flummoxed. Either way, her products combine the two things that make the perfect present – something pretty and something practical….
