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.

The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
Facial piercings
Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
