Have fun looking around 🙂

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.

What it’s like to be an Introvert
October 20, 2016
Move over anxiety; being an introvert is the new fashionable difficulty! I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
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! ….
