The Killing

The television series, but not the cool Danish one, the American one. It’s been burning a hole in my sky + for some time, and now we finally finished watching it. It may seem little point doing a review now, but you may be like me and often catch up on series 1 when series 2 is due out; which is soon…

Well if that’s the case; don’t bother! I looked at Chris at the end of the last episode and he looked at me and just burst out laughing. It was a case of you had to laugh or you’d be angry about it for ages. I’m still angry!

It’s a standard detective drama with the death of a girl reported at the beginning of the first episode. Throughout the series you get to know her family, some teachers at her school, the detective herself and quite a lot about the local political parties vying for the next election. All of it was utterly boring. None of the characters were likeable; even the detective, who, every other episode nearly leaves to meet her fiance, but never does. It’s filmed in such a way that I think is meant to be gritty and cool, but ended up just being grey and dismal, and the characters mumble all the time so you have to have the volume up high to hear what they’re saying. I’ve never known a series to be drawn out as long as this one. And then…(Spoiler alert; but not really…) at the end…

You still don’t find out who f*****g did it! Hours and hours of my life invested into finding out who killed the girl. 13 episodes, all an hour long, and with double length episodes at the beginning and end! I will not be bothering with series 2.

What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
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….
3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
