» Listings for January 2014

  1. Has reality TV died a slow and painful death? Remember back in 2000 when Craig won the first ever Big Brother and now he sells painting tools on shopping channels! Do ya!!? Weren't those the days (I was a wispy size 10 then) then the producers got savvy and realised there was money in this here random people talking cheese! And the flood gates opened ...

    • Pop Idol
    • Fame Academy
    • The Apprentice 
    • shipwrecked 
    • Love Island 
    • X Factor
    • Britain's Got Talent 
    • Come Dine with Me
    • Dinner Date

    Seriously the list goes on ... now we have more upper class shows like Made in Chelsea however we like to balance this out with The Only Way is Essex where everyone says "Shu up" and has a spray tan.  

    But then we viewing public got a bit bored and the producers twiddled their over large thumbs and come up with the mother of all ideas ..... sticking celebrities in the jungle and ask them to eat kangaroo balls! Way to go!  Celebrities seem to sell so I know lets teach them to dance (Strictly Come Dancing) no let's make it more dangerous. Teach them to Dance on Ice! 

     Im a Celebrity

    So what do you think? Has reality TV died? Or is it still limping on through our TV Guides? Or do you think it's still new, current and exciting? 

    I can't be the only person not to have seen Big Brother since that boy from the Welsh Valley's won!? Go Glan Glen Wales! What happened to you? 2013 saw the year that I didn't even watch The Apprentice or X Factor! I KNOW!! I filled my nights with crime thrillers and Casualty and guess what! I survived!  The formats don't change and with the ever growing need to # everything you can read on Facebook and Twitter the whole show without seeing one second. 

    So I ask again - is reality TV dead?!

  2. After what seems like the whole of January in rain there was a break and some sunshine yesterday. So in epic ninja stylee we had the moo's dressed, in coats and in the car before you could say "raindrops"!  We took their scooters (Olive got one for Christmas and Megan's has been having a make over - but I'll blog about that later) parked at Potterne Park and made our way to Moors Valley - we decided to do a round circuit there and back rather than stopping at Moors Valley itself. 

    skate park

    The girls had a quick go on a ramp at the skate park - Moo didn't as he is chicken too cool!


    and they're off .....

    log bench

    We stopped for a rest on a log bench. 

    splash mud

    Olive found a muddy puddle of course! 

    scooter pulling

    Olive got a bit tired so Daddy Moo gave her a pull along - which reminds me we may need to invest in a Scoot N Pull. Do you like Olive's ribbons? They are from Sarah Lovell Art. 

    dirty bottom

    And somebody wasn't steering properly and fell backwards into a muddy bog.  Wonder who?! 

    We had a lovely couple of hours out and no sooner had we kicked off our muddy boots and filled the washing machine with muddy clothes and coats, the heavens opened and the rain continued .... and still is now. *sigh*
