Here is a box

My sister got me the complete Camberwick Green DVD for my birthday – it arrived kinda late, but it’s a brilliant present so she just about gets away with it.

I’d forgotten quite what lovely picturesque stories they are – it’s like a model of how this country ought to be. But I can’t help finding the music box at the beginning and end a bit frightening; maybe it’s the fact that you spend each episode getting to know a character then suddenly they’re whisked away into the depths of a music box which closes over them in a sinister way.

I’m a tiny bit worried that real life’s like that too. Could it be that one day I’ll be going about my business when Brian Cant’s voice will say “what a busy man you are, Mr Lark!” and suddenly I’ll find myself turning around and around and disappearing inside a music box?
