This is what I’m seriously digging this week.

Bear necessities

Paddington 2

On Tuesday night after a questionable day at the office, I took myself off to the Odeon to catch Paddington 2, the sequel to the seminal Paddington. Man, I loved it.

And yes, I shed more than one tear before the end credits rolled. I just love that damned bear.

Detectorists

Absolutely without question, this is my new best thing. A handful of people have recommended this and every time I’ve ignored them. I started on it the other evening and now I’m almost two series down. It’s so gentle and lovely – an absolute credit to Mackenzie Crook who writes and stars in it, and the amazing Toby Jones who plays Lance.

My personal favourite character is Becky, Andy’s teacher girlfriend played by Rachael Stirling. Such a babe and funny as all fuck.

The Sinner - Season 1
Still managing to make a prison jumpsuit look cute, damn you Biel

The Sinner

JESUS. This show is crazy involved and gripping af.

Jessica Biel is Cora Tannetti, a woman who one day commits an act of extreme violence on the beach. While there appears to be no connection between her and the victim, Detective Ambrose (Bill Pullman) isn’t about to let Cora just go down for the crime, no questions asked – and does everything in his power to help her unravel the truth, which is lodged somewhere inside that brain of hers. And boy, do they unfurl a story!

This is a very dark series and it was brilliant as far as I’m concerned. Biel really impressed me, while support from both Christopher Abbott (from Girls) and Nadia Alexander was pretty decent. It’s such a sad tale.

I mainlined this in one day and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes their mysteries dirty and deep.

Obsessed.

The Real Pinhead Around Here

I touched lightly upon my love of pins last month.

Since then things have spiraled out of control and I’m about to attend (and possible have to form my own) Pins Anonymous Group. I mean, there are just too many good ones and I’ve gotta catch ’em all.

I thought that this would be a more cost-effective pursuit come payday than sitting on ASOS as soon as my salary hits my account, but I was wrong. Especially when most of the good badges (as us Brits call them) live in America.

Whatever, though. IDEC! These are the ones I am loving right now (all available via Etsy.com):
