Comment - Eastenders Live Week - Who Killed Lucy

Well I didn't see that one coming, Kathy Beale alive and well and back on the square - nice one Eastenders, although even as a regular viewer I can't quite remember how her exit/supposed death played out, maybe time for another flashback.

Anyway while that may have shocked many, all the hype was around the long awaited announcement of who killed Lucy Beale - at last. To be honest I'd almost forgotten it was due, but not in a bad, this storyline is being dragged out too long kind of way.

I have been watching all week and I just want to say well played Eastenders. Normally with a big storyline I have a pretty firm idea of what's going on, or who has the big secret, and am normally complaining at it being dragged out or wondering when the characters will cotton on. Not so this time - although many people had Jane pegged as Lucy's killer, I wasn't at all sure, and the scenes with several of the other subjects were well played and kept me guessing.

As the week wore on I could count several people out, although only going by my theory that their guilty/revealing scenes came a bit too early on and it would have then been obvious. Yep I felt the drama. I'm not really sure what having live excerpts slotted in episodes did for me as a viewer, although it must have been a good experience for the cast, but other than that I think as a Soap Opera storyline it did confuse, send me on several different paths for just long enough to have me doubt, and then surprise a bit with the end result.

Good one BBC Drama. Let's see what tonight's fully live episode has in store!

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
