Bones

Sorry it’s been a while. Here’s my review of Bones, a sort-of detective series from America. On Sky One on Thursdays 10pm Starring Emily Dechanel, David Boreanaz (from Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Michaela Conlin, Eric Millegan, TJ Thyne and Jonathan Adams.

Of all the American TV shows trying to fill the shoes of X-Files (Lost and Invasion come to mind), I think Bones is the best. (brought to us by 20th century Fox television). Although it doesn’t involve anything spooky or supernatural, it does feature a female scientist and good-looking male FBI agent made to work together; each having their own techniques to solving crimes. Sound familiar?
I’m really loving it actually – more and more each week. It’s been going while now, but bound to be repeated, so look out for it beginning again soon. I have to admit you do have to get past the, what I can only describe as ‘American-ness’ of this series. There are several corny moments, and predictable happy endings, and this is at its worst in the first few episodes. What gets you through though, is the fantastic story lines each week.
It’s really a murder mystery for each hour long episode, as ‘Bones’, Dr Temperence Brennan is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist working with a brilliant team of scientists at the Jeffersonian Institution, gets drafted in by the FBI to help solve murders of usually unrecognisable victims. She of course reluctantly has to work with Special Agent Seeley Booth and the inevitable friendship and occasional sexual chemistry develops throughout the series. The other interesting characters who work in the team act as perfect back-up.
I really recommend giving this program a good go.

Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..

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….
Bedroom renovating part 1 – Making a reclaimed rustic wooden headboard
October 22, 2016
I watched back the September Favourites You Tube video I made, and I don’t think my tone of voice was sarcastic enough when I said that next time I’d be in the bedroom with a white headboard with fairy-lights and a vase of flowers and candle in the background! (This seems to be the setting of 99% of monthly favourites You Tube videos.) When I made that video we had no headboard at all; flaky plaster; holes in the ceiling and a lot of mess. Last weekend though, we got busy in the bedroom(!)…..
