Ugly Betty

But they don’t know the colours that go!

Channel 4, Fridays 9:30pm. Starring America Ferrera, Eric Mabius, Vanessa Williams, Rebecca Romijn, Alan Dale (aka Jim Robinson), Ashley Jenson
Oh I love love love this programme!!! I can’t believe it’s the last episode of the series on Friday – it’s come too soon. To begin with I was worried that they were trying to make more of this show than it really was. They saw the success of Desperate Housewives with the underlying mystery keeping the suspence going, and they copied that idea with seeing the bandaged woman the whole way through the first series. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the Alex/Alexis Meade twist when the bandages finally came off. And it’s got better and better ever since.

The balance with comedy and serious famliy emotions is just right; and the fact that Americans seem to be able to make fun of themselves is worth applauding. The only thing that annoys me is the obvious fact that Betty is pretty and not ugly in the slightest! Actually it pisses me off that STILL Americans think that glasses make someone ugly; though I admit those braces aren’t the most flattering in the world.

Oh actually there’s something else that winds me up, though not the fault of the programme, but the Dulux advert make me shout at the telly every week. Half of the colours they say don’t go; DO go. And half the colours they say do go; DON’T go!!!! It makes me mad! And I won’t be buying Dulux paint because of it. Mind you, if you’ve read my paint review, you’ll know I wouldn’t anyway.

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….
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
Bedroom renovating part 1 – Making a reclaimed rustic wooden headboard
October 22, 2016
I watched back the September Favourites You Tube video I made, and I don’t think my tone of voice was sarcastic enough when I said that next time I’d be in the bedroom with a white headboard with fairy-lights and a vase of flowers and candle in the background! (This seems to be the setting of 99% of monthly favourites You Tube videos.) When I made that video we had no headboard at all; flaky plaster; holes in the ceiling and a lot of mess. Last weekend though, we got busy in the bedroom(!)…..
