Tin Star is back!

The epic thriller featuring English actor Tim Roth has returned for its second series on Sky Atlantic. Same as the year before, you can either download all now to watch as you please, or watch it week by week. Tin Star, if you’re not sure, is a slang term for a sheriff in the United…

I’m just caught up with Luther..here are my thoughts

I’ve just caught up, finally, to Luther season 5. To say I was a little disappointed with it, is an understatement. Previous seasons have always been so deliciously suspenseful, with a gripping storyline, but season 5, I thought it would be just as good, but for me, it was a little drab. I know, I…

Birthday Cake bakerdays Review

Who doesn’t love cake? Marie Antoinette once famously said, “Let them eat cake,” and cake we shall eat. I love cake, it’s cake! I don’t think you need much more convincing than that, but cake is a need, a must really for almost all occasions, not just celebrations and birthdays. A few weeks ago I…

I had to rewatch all seasons of Luther, before I started season 5

I love Luther. I love Idris Elba. He’s brilliant. The part was written for him. Really, no other actor could play the character as well as him, which is no surprise really that the casting team couldn’t find an American actor who could compete with the English actor. If you’ve been on a different planet…

A walk down Government Acre

New Years Eve, we wanted to go on a little walking adventure. Christmas was mostly spent at home, with the occasional visit out, but we hadn’t done much together just the three of us. After a little visit to the park the day before, shop and walk home without the buggy, a huge smile on…

Christmas Lunch at Brewers Fayre

When it comes to Christmas, it’s usually a family affair. Last year Emily was so small, Christmas was hardly an event as she was so ill that a get-together with Sam’s brother and family on Boxing Day was planned around hoping she wouldn’t vomit at the Holden Horse. This year, our Christmas lunch with Sam’s…

Who’s watching The Sinner on BBC Four?

I’ve been watching The Sinner on BBC Four the last few weekends, and I totally understand why it’s been so popular. The American anthology crime drama mystery television series, based on the novel of the same name by German crime writer Petra Hammesfahr, is currently airing on BBC Four. Spread across 8 episodes, featuring Jessica…

I’m having a bit of a clear out before Christmas

How crazy to think that in a few short weeks it will officially be December and then the countdown to Christmas begins. Seriously, where has this year gone? It’s flown by! It’s mad to think that in a few weeks Emily will turn 2 too. As Christmas approaches, to get ready for the first Christmas…

My mum came to visit in September, it always flies by so quickly!

It’s always nice when family come to visit us down here in Ramsgate. It’s also really nice when my mum comes down too. Mum loves Ramsgate, she’s transfixed by the beauty of the Royal harbour and our magnificent golden sandy beach too. Her and her partner Leon love exploring the various towns and areas around…

Im a Celeb is coming back and I’m not happy this year.

It’s the only reality program I show an inch of interest towards. Every year celebs or past-their-sale-date celebs are thrown into the jungle together and put through gross and terrifying tests to see how far they’d go for their pay packet and to be made king or queen of the mighty Australian jungle. It’s not…

We ate at Cafe Rouge for my birthday and I still love it 28 years on.

Cafe Rouge is one of my favourite restaurants, ever. As a child my dad used to take my sister and I to the Richmond restaurant where breakfast, lunch or dinner was a favourite time spent there. The smell of freshly roasted coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, baked croissants, sugar cubes in little white bowls, chic…

Great benefits available at the little bears club at Westwood Cross

Going shopping with children whatever the kind is rarely a fun day out, unless they’re small, like really really small. So when I go to Westwood Cross in Broadstairs, it’s a rarity because Emily isn’t interested in sitting in a pram whilst I browse the aisle in each and every shop, and why should she?…
