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…

Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
