Now autumn is practically upon us and the weather is rapidly deteriorating, I’m loving snuggling up on the sofa at night to watch TV. And by snuggling up, I mean under my 5 year old’s dinosaur blanket once the kids are in bed, because that’s how I roll.
Here’s what I’ve been watching over the last month or so:
The Client List
It follows Riley, a Texas housewife, who finds herself broke after her husband disappears, leaving her with a mortgage and two young kids to support. She takes a job in a spa, but soon finds out that some of her colleagues provide ‘extras’ to top up their wages. Of course you’ll guess Riley ends up doing the same, but she also manages to carve out quite the business for herself when she takes over the spa. But of course leading a double life starts to catch up with her and you see how things start to unravel as Riley struggles to keep on top of things at home and at the spa.
Game of Thrones
It’s funny but I never saw myself getting into it at all. I didn’t even started watching it until everyone else was 4 series in. Dragons, giants, the army of the dead. It all sounded a bit too fantasy land for me. But it turns out it makes an amazing watch. And I can’t get enough of it. I just wish a certain author would hurry up and finish the latest book so I can get my literary fix!
I’m becoming more and more interested in the role of women throughout history. And Victoria is one such woman whose story just fascinates me. This series so far has explored her struggle with her role as Queen, while also trying to be a wife and mother. And we think we have it bad!
