Saturday 1440 – 22nd December 2012
FUN! FUN! FUN!
I know that by now you’re all used to me being terribly serious but you’ll be delighted to know there is a lighter side to me. Phew what a relief I can hear you all say.! To those of you who have just started following my blog ( and thank you) this is a reminder that this blog was started so that I could write about what I was doing on the last 1500 Saturdays I might have left and this IS what I was doing on Saturday 1441 but don’t be concerned I’m sure I’ll be back to my serious self in due course!
I find TV intrusive so I choose not to have it. I do have BBCi on my computer and occasionally watch something on there but I do have ONE TV weakness and that is Strictly Come Dancing !
For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, the show matches sportsmen, actors, TV presenters etc with professional dancers who teach them how to do Latin and Ballroom dances. There are judges and the public get votes too.
Today was the final and I was invited over to lovely daughters to watch the final on her proper TV .. Actually I think I might have invited myself but whatever ! Ain’t she a lovely daughter ( that’s her to the right) .. even better my son, who lives at her house at the moment, made a delicious roast dinner but did not wait around after for the Strictly dancing. Why ever not !
I don’t really do dressing up but I did put on a beaded top and velvet/silk skirt, with a bit of netting in the petticoat, to get into the spirit of the whole thing and so Katy could take a couple of photos to prove I WAS having fun – you can see me kicking up my leg in the photo above ( well as close as I was going to get to it !! ) It’s important when you are a serious-concerned-for-the-world-and-its-people type and a Social Worker to boot to schedule in some fun time and that’s what I was doing.. A glass or 2 of Prosecco and Kir went down a treat.
I love Strictly because the dancers create wonderful routines, it’s exciting,athletic, musical and a huge amount of fun too which is all good in my book. This is no soft thing to do the “celebrities” have to work extremely hard to be any good.
Here’s a few terrible photos stolen from the telly of the last 3 pairings; just to give you an idea . They were all FAB U LOUS darling !
The very deserving winner ( though as they were all Brilliant it could have been anyone) was the Olympic gymnastics Silver medallist Louis Smith with his partner Flavia Cacace; voted for by the public. They were magnificent; powerful, elegant, fun.
One of my daughter’s cats Charlie got in on the act too with a backward head roll. ha !
