One for all and all for one, muskehounds are always ready…

I can’t get the theme tune to Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds out of my head now – and that rather dates my childhood doesn’t it. Most of you won’t know what I’m going on about. Anyway, this is my review of the latest The Three Musketeers film…

I absolutely loved it! This will no doubt be my favourite film of 2012 (until The Hobbit right at the end.) If you like Pirates of the Caribbean, then you’ll probably like this too as I’m pretty sure it was heavily influenced by it. It’s a fast-paced action adventure with a smattering of humour and romance thrown in; not to mention fabulous costumes. I want to own every single one of Milla Jovovich – playing Milady – ‘s costumes. They are amazing and Milla did what she does best, adding a touch of glamour and a heavy dose of kick-ass-ness. The three musketeers were rather enjoyable to look at too!

Apart from D’Artagnan and Milady, the cast was largely British with many familiar faces including James Corden playing a hard-done-by servant and Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham. The sets were lavish, the special effects were outlandish and the fight scenes were Pirates of the Caribbean-ish. With airships and clockwork gadgets, it was quite steampunk too. I can’t wait to watch it again!

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! ….
Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
