Watching…

It’s about to be officially Spring but it really hasn’t sprung yet. It’s still cold and damp and just generally very grey so here’s some great telly to get stuck into whilst we all wait for it to warm up. This Country (BBC) This award winning mockumentary follows the lives of young people in rural…

Big dreams…

Currently watching the BBC show Big Dreams, Small Spaces with gardening guru Monty Don. My husband routinely makes fun out of me for loving Monty Don but I have now converted him and we are now both Monty super fans! ūüėÜ Isn’t he just dreamy? Big Dreams, Small Spaces features people wanting to transform their…

I‚Äôve been watching…

I’m not sure why anybody would care what I’ve been watching but it’s an excuse to talk about some of my favourite programmes and with the Winter nights drawing in what could be better than snuggling on the sofa to watch something brilliant. Nigella Regular readers of my blog will already know about my frankly…

Strike

Ah! After I published my Must See TV post I realised I’d left out the very brilliant Strike.  Based on the novels by Robert Galbraith (a pseudonym for Harry Potter author J K Rowling) Strike follows the life of private investigator Cormoran Strike (Tom Burke) and his assistant Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger).  So far the current series has featured…

Must See TV 

Yesterday I had a migraine. I wouldn’t say I suffer from migraines. I know people who do and they’re delibilitaring and awful. I get probably two, maybe three, a year. Not entirely sure what triggered this one but there you go. Today I am left with that awful post migraine fog. The sore head and stiff…

TV Picks

For reasons too absurd and long to go into we currently have access to Virgin, SKY, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Due to this televisual abundance I have become rather choosy about what I watch. Why watch yet another Top Gear repeat on Dave when THERE’S SO MUCH GOOD TELLY ON! So with that in mind here…

Big Little Lies

If you haven’t seen it already then you simply must watch Big Little Lies.  Based on the book by Liane Moriarty it follows the lives of some school mums (I refuse to say moms) in Monterey, California.  Yes it’s about mothers and their kids and school gate politics but it’s also about relationships and what…

Euro2016

So the football is back. It’s on all the time. I was texting my friend Jo last night in despair “He’s watching football!” I wailed “It’s the THIRD MATCH OF THE DAY”. And today has been much of the same. But I tell myself we’re having a rare quiet weekend and the European Championships are…

Versailles 

Just a quick note to remind you all to set your boxes to record the new raunchy French drama Versailles that starts this week (9:30pm Wed, BBC2).  It’s the most expensive French TV series ever made. It’s also the first French series to have a second season commissioned before the first had aired. Written by two…

Infomercials 

One of my daughter’s favourite things in LIFE is watching awful infomercials. Recently she’s found some corkers! The Better Marriage Blanket¬†– a blanket that improves your marriage by¬†trapping farts. Go Go Pillow¬†– a bean bag. Seriously that’s all it is. Comfort Wipe¬†– a stick for wiping your bum. Kush¬†– I just can’t even… Not only…
