The Wind in the Willows

This is what I thought of this new telly production.

BBC1 New Year’s Day (and no doubt repeated a lot in the future)

Starring Matt Lucas, Mark Gatiss, Lee Ingleby, Bob Hoskins…

When I saw the clips for this I couldn’t help wondering if we need another version of Wind in the Willows. There’s currently 15 minutes left to go, and I am no longer wondering – the answer was no we don’t. There’s nothing original or exciting about this one, other than we see Matt Lucas in costume for a character not in Little Britain (though he has on occasion lapsed into a familiar accent).

I wasn’t interested enough to sit and watch the whole hour-and-a-half program; my 11 year-old has done (but then she’d happily gawp at adverts for that length of time before realising no program had started); and my 8 year-old is bored – currently nagging me to pull the last couple of crackers and bouncing a scooby doo on a tennis racquet.

Entertainment, TV,

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!….
