A new weekly magazine
Well it’s about time someone came along and filled this gap in the market. This magazine is the one I’ve been looking for for ages! The only thing that I don’t like about it is the ‘True Life’ stories such as ‘My Mum made me a drug addict’ etc; but there aren’t many, so it’s forgiven!
I am mildly interested in celebrities – I like to have some clue as to who’s who; so I started buying Heat magazine about 8 years ago when it was actually a decent magazine and did the best coverage of Glastonbury; but when it went over the top with endless shock horror pictures of celeb cellulite that was no where near as bad as mine, I switched my pennies to OK! But it wasn’t long before I got fed up of Jordan and the pictures in there got more and more like Heat. So, for the last 2 or 3 years I’ve become completely out of touch with the media world, with no magazines that I’m willing to put in my trolley. When I last picked up OK at a friend’s house I discovered that we’re meant to be on first name terms with everyone and I didn’t have a clue who half of them were.
Look magazine is obliging enough to provide us with celebrity surnames most of the time, but the best thing about it is the fashion. Loads and loads of fashion! Much more important than famous people! (Though a lot of the fashion is on them). Not only that; but it’s affordable fashion. Most of the clothes are from New Look or Top Shop and if most people like it, most people can go out and get it. As the magazine is weekly, it even tells you when the best items are coming into the shops. It plain and simply tells us what’s around, what’s trendy and where to get it. No pretentiousness and so far no obvious agreement with any brands to push their products at us. I like it a lot. Usually a sure-fire sign that it won’t last long due to lack of advertising. Nice for us that we don’t have to flick through pages of adverts before we reach the contents page; but I gather that’s not so good for them.

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
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….
