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.

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
