I Am Obsessed With Killing Eve.

Is Villanelle a modern day heroine?

About two weekends ago I was down right bored I really fancied watching something new,  I looked through Netflix nothing there, I looked through Amazon Prime just the usual cheap films I had seen before, Then I came across this little gem called Killing Eve, on BBC i player, not my usual thing but I'll give it a a go, within the first two minutes from the opening scene when Villanelle tipped the ice cream in the spoilt little girls lap and the music started I was hooked, I love the way it looks, it has the most delicious location's around Europe, and the fact that the main character is not a goody but a glamours, intelligent and funny  young women who happens to kill people for a living, I ask myself is she the baddy a modern day monster or a a modern day heroine?
        Never have I rooted for the bad guy before, you are not supposed to laugh when she runs over her former lover, but I did because it was clever, how can you inject humor into a murderous spy, but it works it really does. Villanelle has style class taste, speaks lots of languages has lots of money, is pretty, and yet she kills people in the most brutal way even torture  them for her own pleasure, she feels no remorse, guilt or sympathy and I think she enjoys it, but I love her anyway why,  because even though she is the worst kind of human, she is what every women wants to be except for the murder and torture bit, when you find out about her childhood and her unhappy past, you start to feel sorry for her because like us all she is floored and even has insecurities, we start to feel sympathy and she starts to look vulnerable, does this women really have a yearning to be really loved, I think she does but would you trust her she might kill you, but man or women would quiet quickly fall under her spell.  You couldn't help it. Even myself a heterosexual female can't help smile "Oh Yeah" when she comes out with her witty and dry one liners.
              I have always loved strong women, when I was a child I wanted to be Cleopatra or Suzi Quatro what a combination but both strong women in a Man's world, maybe  it comes down to my family having such strong women in it.
           Villanelle is I think a modern day heroine even if she is a psychopath. Killing Eve  the series is a TV Program  like no other, the good start for the #metoo generation for as long as it lasts. Me I am off to re watch the series all over again in case I missed any good bits the first time round. If you haven't watched it yet it's so good I would highly recommend it.

Help, I Got Lost In A Maze.

Its been so cold the last few days, all I wanted to do stay indoors and keep warm, but No I decided with my loved one to go out for the day, "Lets go to a Maze" I said "What the F......." was the reply "Why?" was the next reply.  I found a stately home I wanted to go and see I love seeing them, makes me feel like I am in Downton Abbey, another time, another world.
   So we packed up the car put on two jumpers my big coat hat scarf and gloves, and off we went. It was freezing cold, what the hell were thinking, I have been to one maze before but but it was little and yes, you could see over the top what is the point of that, but this one there is no way you could see over the top, I was actually nervous and a excited, then I thought what if we can't get out, how embarrassing, would that be. We went around the gardens first which were stunning even on a cold January day.  But the hour had finally come the dreaded maze, with fear and treperdation we st…

 From about the age of 27 I started to workout to keep fit DVD's and they worked they really did, and I actually enjoyed it, I became pretty fit and had a nice little figure too,  but alas time has gone on and the years have gone by and by the time I was 35 I started to realize I couldn't do the DVD's that I was doing a few years back and was struggling to do any more that 20 mins each time, and eventually  I started …

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …
