Whilst I've been away from blogging I've watched a lot of tv, so I'm getting on my soap box to let off some totally pointless steam!
The first gripe is the so called 'kirsties homemade home'. I had high hopes for this program, but oh no was I sadly misled!! I'm sorry to say Kirstie I don't think you have a creative bone in your body, sorry that was harsh. I liked the whole ethos she was trying to create, just not the patronising way she tells us that all our houses are dull carbon copies.
The rooms got progressively worse as she went along, the worst being the awful wallpaper she 'had' put up in the wc. hideous!
By far the saddest moment was when she ripped out the lovely original fireplace and replaced it with a horribly grubby looking stone thing.
All I can say is that Ms Allsopp should do some research next time and focus on some of the lovely 'normal' homes as seen in blogland!!
ps. I did like the fact that she spent £250 on a not very nice quilt!! HAHA!!
My second, this time a well deserved moan, is alas, about my ex favourite program
Gardeners World. Where do I begin? The new concept to this beloved program is so awful I'm considering switching off. Its extremely patronising, smug and fake. The new patch of mud is uninspiring and leaves me wondering whats going on at Berryfields?
I realise they have to attract new gardeners, but what about us non-virgins!!
Please don't show Carol taking cuttings ever again!
I wasn't a big fan of Montys, but after catching an old gw on the gardening channel, I would welcome him back any day!!
Whats hot and whats not gardeners world!
