Film, Movie 0r Boxset Night: Tulip Fever

I watched another screen adaptation of a book. This time it was the Tulip Fever, set in Amsterdam during the Tulip madness. It was a slow start, then plenty of unnecessary sex scene - I write romance, and at times, they can be erotic but sex scenes need to advance the plot in some way. Anyway, the actors needed to get off their kits at various stages of the films, probably to show 'how in love' they were. 

Oh the story? An old geezer marries a young woman and commissions her portrait. Soon for no reason at all, the young wife and artist starts to have a torrid affair. You know it's torrid by the number of sex scenes in the film - probably too many. There is the parallel story of the maid and her love affair. Basically the young wife embarks on an elaborate plan to be with her lover, and it goes a bit weird, saying this the plot is very convoluted.

Even though set in Holland, it's mostly an English cast, Cara Delevingne is in it, - hard to miss our Cara especially as she loves to steal the scene, she features in a minor part, and so does Johnny Vegas, and Dame Judy Dench. 

It has it's good moments, but overall a big miss from me.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
