Life on Mars (series 2)

Blip…blip…blip. My review of the second series of Life on Mars.

Starring John Simm, Phillip Glenister, Liz White. Written by Mathew Graham, Directed by Andrew Gunn. On BBC1, 9pm Tuesdays

I think I raved on about how I loved the first series, so I won’t bother doing it again. John Simm is still just as gorgeous. (Did I mention how he smiled at me at Run To the Sun festival in 2001?) (and that’s despite him being with some tall blonde model person) (and despite me being with my husband!) (Oh I did mention it? Sorry!) Where was I? Oh yes, how brilliant Life on Mars is. Truly original (well actually rather similar to the Sweeny and other 70s cop dramas) for our generation and the format works beautifully. If you’ve missed most the series, get the dvd which is out now. I may have to, to find out how it ends.

PS Just seen this week’s episode and the Camberwick Green thing was genius! We want to see a whole series of Life on Mars in Camberwick Green style!

Wow! What a good episode. But then they all have been. This is the best drama series I’ve ever seen on telly ever. Full of action, humour, suspense and a little bit of romance too. Not to mention John Simm to look at…

This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.

Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
Is it time to start making an effort?

Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
