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 🙂

Paul

The alien comedy drama starring and written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. 2 English guys travelling in a big campervan (RV) across America seeing the alien sights.

If you’re a fan of their cult series Spaced (currently being repeated on Dave), then you will love this film. It was a real hark back to those good old days! Loads of references and quotes to classic films – Jaws, Star wars and Indiana Jones; so with my husband telling us every time these cropped up, and the rest of us shouting “We’ve been there!” at occasional moments; we were’t the quietest of audiences! We drove the Extraterrestrial Highway 2 years ago and stopped for lunch at the Little A’le’ inn in Rachel, Nevada where they actually filmed that scene in the film. We never saw The Black Mail Box though.

(Deviation: If you’re ever at Las Vegas and deciding which way to get to Yosemite or San Francisco; take the route through Death Valley. There is so much more to see (though it may not feel like it at the time) than the ET route. Hours and hours and hours of nothing but a straight road ahead and views of rocks. Though we did have to slow down for a goat once.)

Anyway, the film was fantastic. We laughed all the way through and the kids had tears in their eyes at the sad bit. The character of Paul was genius, right from the blinking cute eyes, to the rudeness and mooning to his acts of kindness. I loved him! There were even unexpected twists to the plot.

Highly recommended film. Worth getting the dvd.

Feather & Black in Bath, Somerset
Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
