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.

Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
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!….
