I'm not and never will be a maven or a taste maker or any of those things, the very thought of it is on the one hand hilarious and on the other weird and unsettling. Which brings me (as if I planned it) to talk about something I have only just seen so I assume everyone else in the known universe has already forgotten about. I know not everyone watches television but have any of the tv watchers here seen the show Search Party? I saw an advert for the the other day and it looked interesting, plus Alia Shawkat plays the main character and of course I love Arrested Development.
Anyway, this comedy-thriller (10 x 20 minutes episodes) follows twenty-something Dory and her three similarly annoying, self-obsessed friends as they attempt to discover what happened to a distant former college mate who has disappeared. We found parts of it to be laugh out loud funny as well as being intrigued. Growing up I was a massive fan of Tales of the Unexpected, if you liked that, you'll probably like this updated version too, it's fresh, looks great, and features a house I would very much like to have as a holiday home in the final episode!
The whole series is available on All4.
Our search for a tea caddy is also over. We've been looking around for one for a while now, yesterday we almost bought one but then I remembered something I bought from the charity shop some time last year. During the summer I used it as a pot for some basil, but it was living under the sink doing nothing. Dan was initially unconvinced (mainly because it was under the sink) but now we have our perfect fit tea caddy!
It was a simple weekend after all.
