3:41She wrote over the margin of the card - is that normal?
9:23“Sometimes I wonder whether I’m a boyfriend or a bedroom.”
14:28Wasn’t expecting Celia to turn out to be a trapeze artist!
19:09I worry this is what it’s like living with me. Quiet as a mouse with clogs on.
22:16Trapeze class??
25:27“If anyone knows how to steer a ship, it’s you.”
30:23Mountaineering and crocheting are complete opposites of the hobby spectrum.
31:58Slo-mo icing sugar is always amazing.
34:44“Bake with me.” Is that what they’re calling it these days.
37:49The name is fine but they’ve gone for terrible contrast and a very small font.
41:20They need to decide whether to call it Love Sara or Love Sarahs. The former, obviously.
45:58“Did you love her?” “Pomegranates.”
46:25They’re just eating the market produce… it’s not a buffet, right?
53:15Loving the multicultural celebration!
58:28I just feel like running a bakery and dancing are just not meant to be done together.
1:01:24“Swagger, better than everybody else.”
1:03:54She knows where its at, work first, play later.
1:10:38I mean, I get it, but equally, you can’t give someone a buttload of confidence and then be pissed off when they don’t need you anymore.
1:14:08Don’t be mean to Pascal, he’s just a nice French man.
1:15:16“I like millefeuille the best. Do you make a millefeuille?”
1:15:49Aww, good that he came clean.
1:35:22Wait, that was Candice?? Amazing.

Thoughts

So, we both somehow had really bad days and were looking for a comedy to essentially take the pain away. This was a new & notable in the comedy genre on the Apple store, and I’d have to question that categorisation of it. Firstly, it starts with a really sad ten minutes, and even after that it’s more drama than comedy.

BUT, never mind, because it’s really good. One of those lovely stories with a great cast doing nice things and just trying to make something work against the odds. I love that Celia’s character is so ready to embrace the cultural differences that make London work. And the family dynamic that they’ve created because they’re not really family at all. Heartwarming.
