Yesterday news was confirmed that many EastEnders fans have been hoping for-Kate Oates is to join as the new producer! This is exciting news for fans of the soap who may feel that the BBC’s flagship soap has been lacking these last couple of years in some department or another.
Oates has a big soap reputation behind her, having changed up both Corrie and Emmerdale, making some strong changes, that while not all soap fans may have enjoyed, a lot of her work was met with much acclaim. She was certainly able to create a strong vision for the soaps and stuck to her direction throughout her runs. Kate is known for bringing a bit more of a ‘twist and turns’ feel to Corrie, and far more gritter storylines then the soap is used too. Which was always the style of EastEnders more, but aside from the odd moments here and there, such as the recent stabbing storyline and the excellent funeral of Shaki, the show has departed from and seemed like it was afraid to take as many risks and wanted an overall lighter tone. Could Kate reinstate the show back to its former self?
When a new producer is announced for a soap, a few areas of media usually like to do ’10 things we’d like to see’ type thing’ and as a fan of the show, I thought I’d do one myself, in a YouTube video which I’ll upload shortly. I’ll give a little on my current thoughts on EastEnders too if you are interested!
Kate Oates joins in October, and her storylines will likely largely begin in the new year. So the question many are asking- Is 2019 going to be the year EastEnders gets back on top?
Most importantly is it a year for the show to offer quality, gripping drama acted and told well, with the edge the show was always known for? Can it do this in a way we know the soap is capable of but does not always show it!
More on this soon, for now, take care!
Before I was back. Now I’m Back Back. As in not going out. Going Out Out.
Oh yes, i mentioned I’d be gone from updating this website for a bit, and just doing my posts on my social media channels why I sorted a few bits out. Then I had to repeat that same process, and now I’m back again! I did not attend it to be quite so long, but here I am, this time you will find a continues stream of new content most days.
I look forward to sharing what I have instore for you, and hopefully getting some much-appreciated feedback from your lovely selfs.
Until very soon,
Take care, and treat everyone like you have the hots for them. Or something like that.
Hi all. I am sorry if this post is a little rushed, the Wifi set up in my new flat (Talk Talk) is currently very poor and keeps dropping out completely (phoned to complain as it was slow and they made it even worse!) so I have had to write this in a matter of minutes before I loose the connection again!
Anyway, I went with a good friend to see the new adaptation of Rope at the Queen’s Theatre.
Rope is a 1929 British play by Patrick Hamilton. There is a good chamce you may be familiar with the 1948 Hitchcock film adaptation.
The story follows two well off, young university students Wyndham Brandon (George Kemp) and Charles Granillo (James Sutton) and is set entirely on the first floor of their London house.
The men have murdered a fellow student Ronald Kentley, with no motive, rather as an expression of their believed intellectual superiority. The corspe has been hidden in a locked chest, which is center to the room where they invite friends and family around for drinks and a buffet. The buffet is served on that very chest! Can the two get away with their murder, even with the body in the same room as the guests? And what happens when a guest in particular starts to get suspicious?
I enjoyed this production of Rope directed by Douglas Rintoul. I felt it was tightly mapped out, keeping you guessing untill the end, with enough time spent on character development and plot advancement, for a well balanced unraveling thriller. The lighting helped evoke a film noir style which was very effective. Also the story still managed a nice line in humour too.
The whole cast did a great job from an acting point of view, nicely judged performances in both the more subtle moments and the more tense and dramatic ones, with beliveable chemistry and friction rubbing against the characters. They all played off each other very well. The play also explores interesting moral dynamics.
All in all, this story of a daring cat and mouse game is well worth catching at the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch.
These days many reports published in the news suggest a food to be a ‘Wonder-food’ due to its high count of essential nutrients. Often a week later, they will then be telling us how bad that same product could be for us!
But the buzz around dark chocolate and its health benefits seems to of stayed consistant. Researchers in general seem to agree that dark chocolate could provide these benefits:
- Protection from Disease-Causing Free Radicals
- Potential Cancer Prevention
- Improve Heart Health
- Good for Overall Cholesterol
- Improve Cognitive Function
- Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Aid
- And that dark chocolate is an Antioxidant-Rich Superfood!
Now I really love me some dark chocolate and I’m always on the hunt for new brands. I heard about a 99% bar from Lindt but haven’t been able to track it down, however in my local Sainsbury’s I found a 100% bar which you can see a taste test for below!
What’s your favourite dark chocolate brand, perhaps you can give me some recommendations?
One of my favourite artists at the moment, who I eagerly await her latest cover on YouTube, is a young lady called Davina Michelle.
Davina can definitely sing, there is no doubt about that. All of her performances have been great, she hits both high and low notes beautifully, has great delivery, with a lovely smokey, sultry tone to her voice, giving her own trademark to her covers.
I feel she adds a lot of personality and style to her songs, which is perhaps sometimes an underrated consideration in a performance.
Davina only joined YouTube and began sharing her music in February of 2017, but rightly she has already received millions of views and thousands of followers. Her cover of a Pink song was even featured when Pink was commenting on peoples covers-and lovely that you could tell she genuinely loved it too! Have a look at the video below, Davina is the first featured artist. This is amazing also for Davina who is a big Pink fan (as may I add, am I).
She really does do an incredible cover, but it is not all about covers. She has also been putting her own tracks out as well, with her Relove. I really like the concept and vibe of this, which was interestingly an inspired reaction to Pink’s What About Us.
As Pink said, this lady needs to be signed.
Have a look at Davina Michelle’s Content For Yourself:
Hi all. Why not join me and my sister Chelsey-Ann who will be discussing our favourite tracks of 2017. We both agree that 2017 had some good hits and here we will be taking it in turns to pick our top 10. Let us know what would have been your picks!

Thanks for your time,
I’m about to take a Christmas break, so expect less new content on this site until just after Christmas. When I return, I’ll be more then doubling the content amounts that 2017 saw, as I expand on what 2017 brought to Stuffhere Projects!
Please note, the Stuffhere Projects store Thrifty P will of course continue to operate as normal, and if you order before the 19th December delivery is still guaranteed to reach you in time for Christmas Day!
All other services offered by Stuffhere Projects still remain active.
When I do return with more content, a fair amount will be focused on plans for 2018, including from a business perspective but also from a more personal one.
I’m not just thinking about literal plans here; plans for holidays, plans of what to buy, project plans etc. But plans from an inner place, if you catch my drift. How I am going to try and develop myself and apply that through all the more literal things I hope to be doing such as the various projects.
But for now, I want to thank you so much for you company and support in 2017 and wish you all A Very Merry Christmas and the Best New Year Yet!
The book I am currently reading is Personal a Jack Reacher novel. I have in particular been looking forward to reading this Lee Child’s book as a large part of it is set in Romford. If you do not know, I have spent most of my life in and around this famous town.
The reason why I mention the above is because I was looking forward to seeing what M.r Reacher would make of our ‘humble’ town and how Lee Child would describe it. Now I am only just a few chapters in, but so far the descriptions of the town are accurate. Lee Child was born in the UK, and likely may of visited good old Romford at some point, and even if he had not, he always does top notch research for his books.
I recently got to a part where Reacher and partner are hungry (‘always eat when you can’) and the food places available in Romford were described as being full of fast food places such as pizza and of course chicken. That is of course very accurate. We can not move without bumping in to a chicken shop in Romford. There are I think even more chicken and chip shops in Romford then Fish and Chip shops. Reacher and partner decide to opt for the pizza option. They do, in another part of the book spend sometime in a cafe, and in my imagination it was one down the high street, a small turning by Maplin. That was just in my imagination and the name was not specified.
Now Reacher fans will know, he loves a good cafe. As an American he likes what they would call a Diner, or perhaps in particular a Greasy Spoon. Now why it is true Romford is full of fast food outlets, it would be a dis-service to the town to just think of it in that way-we have an abundance of great cafes. And, I do hope as the book progresses Reacher explores more of them, as we really have some gems here.
And that is what I thought I’d do. I’ll be featuring content based around the cafes of Romford every so often. Starting with Poppins!
