MY FIRST WEEK OF JANUARY

img_5394

These two go back to school in the morning as their school had training days for the staff last week and as it has been raining here, well it feels likes weeks Billie didn’t want to take them to the yard so they came to stay at mine for a couple of days.  As the picture shows we had jama days with lots of story reading, colouring and them asking Alexa to sing, tell them stories and jokes.  Alexa is the Amazon dot and is great fun for me as much as the children. This is what I felt like after they left.

It has taken me all weekend to recover which was good as I have been chilling just reading and doing my journal also planning these blog posts for the coming weeks.

The next couple of weeks are writing weeks so will be busy editing one and writing more of the other book.  I am still motivated but I guess I should be as we are only a week into the new year, for some reason it feels much longer than that. Won’t be long and it will be February and half-term.

BIG BROTHER

When this TV program first started I enjoyed it as it was new to everyone including the people who went in it.  There was also a lot of conflict in the house making many people watch it so you had live streaming most of the day.

After a couple of years it all became the same just with different people so I did not bother with it.  I don’t watch a lot of TV anyway so it has to be good or entertaining.

This year to support the year of the woman the house just has a very good selection of celebrity women.  I have watched it for two nights and I really hope it continues in this way as I found it very entertaining.  The vast opinions of them all sometimes produce conflict but I do wish they would show us all the conversations as today I read that a lot more went on with regarding Ann Widdecombe yesterday.

I was amazed that Amanda Barrie is 82 I sure hope I look that good when I am that age and she ‘came out’ a few years ago and has never been happier.

There are a couple of women that I didn’t know but I am sure we will know them all very well by the end of this series. Let us hope for a good one.

TV DRAMA – LIAR

MV5BYjkxNDU4ZjktNjA2OS00NTc4LWE1YzUtYWM4N2YyNDY4OWJhXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMjExMjk0ODk@._V1_UY268_CR4,0,182,268_AL_

Here in Britain last night we watched the last episode of LIAR a six-week drama made for television. Laura was raped by Andrew who is a surgeon, he used a drug in her drink so she could not fight him off, also it makes it hard to remember what happened.  The police can find no evidence at all so he is let go but then he does it to the detective, they really search everything and everywhere then but still he gets away with it. Very good acting, I think he actually believes all the lies he tells himself.

This has been extremely popular with many taking to social media today to discuss the last episode so thought I would add my thoughts.

In the beginning you are not sure who is telling the truth but it all, well some of it becomes clear half way through the series.

A lot happened last night, I was surprised that his new girl friend was an undercover cop but disappointed that she got found out so quickly by very sloppy work on her part.

Then when Laura found where he was hiding everything it was really let down by the carer letting her into the shed when in a previous episode he had unlocked a padlock with a key he had.  I was expecting the carer to maybe lock her in the shed after she had spoken to him on the phone.  Even when she was looking at the tapes in her car I thought he would turn up.

The police have all the evidence and send out patrols to find him, he has disappeared though and no one knows where he is.

Then at the end you see him with his throat cut, not knowing who killed him but I am guessing that it was either the police constable or the detectives army girl friend.

I feel that they rushed the last episode and could have included more in it that would make it all add up at the end. There is going to be another series and I believe it will be about the past, when he was married and how he killed his wife and made it look like suicide.  He did rape 17 women so I guess you could have shows about all of them in some way.

What did you think about last nights show?

Would you have written it differently and if so how?

 

ONE LOVE MANCHESTER

One-Love-Manchester

If you are not watching this then make sure you take a look on-line when you are free.  What a concert, there are no words to describe how good this is, you can feel the atmosphere and the love that is in Manchester tonight.  The amount of stars that gave up their time to come here for this are amazing, then you also have the tributes from many other stars that wanted to say a few words.

Britain is recovering from last night in London so this really came at a good time as many people needed reminding not to fear or hide away, we will not be beaten.  My heart goes out to the many that have died in the three terror attacks here, many others are still in hospital.  Our thoughts are with the many families that are suffering from these cruel, cowardly attacks.

BIRTHDAYS & FAMILY TIME

The years go by so quickly, before you can blink they have all grown up but will always be in your heart.  It is lovely looking back at the photos that we have so many of now with the smart phones.

Friday Alfie turned 9 it seems like only yesterday I was flying back from Spain for his birth, then today Izzy is 14, definitely makes you feel old.

 

 

A busy weekend with a lovely brunch yesterday prepared by Jodie, so nice for us all to get together.  Then last night there was more partying in the hot tub, I returned home for an evening with a book, lol.

I read about a book called The Durrell’s of Corfu then realised it was a TV program so my Sunday evening is being spent watching the first series on catch-up, I must say it is very good and I think I will read the books as well one day.

I am now on the look out for lots of pretty tea-cups as I saw this on Pinterest and I think it will look great in my garden above a false fire-place.

Have a great evening and week everyone, still hoping for sunshine here but I guess you can’t have everything.

 

SUNDAY LOVE

IMG_0297

I am looking forward to a good week after being ill for nearly four weeks I think I am coming out the other side, I am not saying I am 100% but I can see light at the end of the tunnel.  I also really want to get back into my writing and I have not felt like that for a long time.  The only thing I have been doing is reading and wow have I read some great books lately, check out the reviews on my page.

So, what is the love about?  

Valentines Day, when did it become February full of love month?  I have nothing against love but for all us single girls it does all become a bit much, every magazine, paper, TV station, adverts, advertising boards all full of bloody love.  I really do not think that all the people who wish to buy a card or present need so much reminding about what they can get and where, we are not stupid.  Rant over, have a great day x
