life on mars

No Life on Mars

What a disappointment. Last night's episode of Life on Mars was the worst yet. Sam and Gene were sidelined in order to devote an episode to Annie and make her look good: failure. Worse, in a series which has been very accurate in its period detail, someone accused the police of 'institutionalised slackness'. What? In 1973? I don't think so.

Tulips

It may be freezing cold but you can buy a cheerful bunch of a dozen tulips for £3.00. It'll be ages before they're out in the garden, if they survive at all, so spoil yourself, I say. For a wonderful read about the history of tulips, all the gorgeous varieties and how to grow them, try The Tulip, by Dorset's own Anna Pavord. Collapse )
