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!…..
Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
