I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. 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.

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….
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
