Campus

On channel 4 on Wednesday evenings. A comedy series by the same writer and creator as Green Wing, Victoria Pile.

I loved Green Wing, but I’m sitting here watching the second episode of Campus feeling rather underwhelmed. I’m really hoping that the more I watch it, the more the characters will grow on me, but at the moment, I’m not sure they will. Even the horrible characters in Green Wing were funny or likeable in some weird way, but there are too many people in Campus that I simply find annoying. The main character, Jonty de Wolfe being the worst of the lot – it especially grates on me when he shouts at people through the megaphone. I just don’t find it funny. No doubt this’ll be the very untrendy thing to admit to – I am reminded of all those celebrity The Office fans condescendingly telling the others that ‘you just don’t get it.’ (Incidentally I did like The Office, but I didn’t say that to those who didn’t!)

The whole thing feels a bit forced, like it’s trying too hard to be weird. I like Lydia Tennant, Flat pack, Imogen Moffat and Matt Beer, but not the others really. There are some funny moments, and it’s fine to have on whilst I’m updating this site or checking Etsy, so I’ll keep going, and as I get more used to it, hopefully I’ll enjoy it more.

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(!)…..
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
