Strictly is back!

Posted: Yesterday at 13:14

I enjoyed last night's final more than the last few, although to be honest I can't really put my finger on why. There seemed to be a good atmosphere generally and I was glad they all got to do their show dances. I used to hate it when one couple was eliminated early on and we never got to see their show dance - all that effort gone to waste !

You can get gift vouchers from the national dahlia collection for 4 or 8  cuttings if you want something "dahlia related". They also do a very nice calendar.  If the recipient is green fingered you can buy packets of dahlia seeds from them or a garden centre

I see that next Friday Channel 5 are showing 2 programmes about Strictly. One called "SCD before they were stars" about the judges and professionals,  and then "The Strictly story:fake tans, tango and a ten from Len" .

I suspect that it will be really interesting (and perhaps somewhat depressing ) to see how much it has changed.

As far as tonight is concerned, l am hoping that Joe and Gemma do well. I'm one of those who like a "journey"

Ooh Dove, what have you done?  I've  followed the link and got lost on the site. So many beautiful dahlias, and the calendar looks lovely too. And the packet of mixed seeds, I'm off to get my credit card ! 

Music. Tunes that mean lots to YOU.

With the news today of the death of David Cassidy, the song "Could it be forever?" takes me back to being 14 again. Every time I've heard it over the years it takes me right back to that time. My husband reckons I only married him because he had eyes like David's. I couldn't possibly comment!
