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!

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
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!….

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
