Sometimes the heart desires very simple things. The heart holds within it all that is most precious, all that we must protect. But it is also braver and bolder, more resilient than we realise. If we wound it, it will heal. And if it breaks, it learns to beat again.
Looks™ : Appreciation for Beatrix “Trixie” Franklin’s wardrobe in Call the Midwife - Series 4 || 1960 👠😍👗💁🏼✨
We’ve entered a new decade! We all know Trixie’s wardrobe has been a dream from the start, but from here on out she’s serving the best looks of her life & *I’m so jealous* (past looks™:series 1 | series 2| series 3)
“I think people are drastically overreacting to Patsy’s leave of absence. It’s likely only for a few months. It’ll be hard without Delia but they can write and even occasionally call. It is not tragic. The end of series 4 is tragic.”
“6.4 showed adoption in such a negative light and I think it was horrible that she took the baby back. I know we were meant to see it as a beautiful moment but I had no sympathy for her and was so devastating for Dot.”
Last time I chose series 4 and although I still love it and of course series 2, I really liked series 6.
Series 6 seemed to me more current than previous series, maybe because its getting closer to my own era, closer but not yet! It tackled issues that are still ongoing today, such as thalidomide, domestic violence, racism, FGM, mental health and disability rights.
On a more specific level, it had amazing moments for the Turners, with an entire series storyline for them. Sister Mary Cynthia’s story was heartbreaking but beautifully portrayed and I am hopeful for her recovery at Northfield. The return of the Mullucks family including the adorable Susan and the story of the beginning of the fight for answers and justice for the families. It ended with a wedding and a ride on a carousel in the snow giving us a happier ending than CtM has seen for a few years.
I also love the new look title sequence with the colours and the new photos reflecting the changing face of the East End. In homage to this amazing series, I have tweaked the colours on the photos I have used. I hope you like them :)
Angela kept squeezing Timothy’s hand with such force that her nails left
little half-moons of white that quickly became red on his skin.
“Calm down, Ange,” Timothy said, uncurling her fingers and rubbing the
back of his hand.
“Don’t hurt your brother, Angela dearest,” her mother said from the
front seat. She kissed Teddy’s chubby cheeks and smiled at him. The baby
gurgled happily, a little bubble of drool forming at the corner of his mouth.
“I am so excited!” Angela almost screamed, clasping her hands and
flopping down with a huge grin on her face.
“It is just a picnic,” Timothy said, placing his hands under her armpits
and hoisting her up so she sat straight.
