Aha David Matthews2, so that is what Nesta in Bridgend was saying to me all those years ago, I thought she was swearing at me when I told her that as an 18 year old soldier I was far too young to marry, the mystery is solved.

Either a little green man singing forty shades of green or a baby shaped guitar, you take your pick David. Our Northern girls have much more decorum, at least they drink pints of Neacastle brown ale with little fingers pointed out sans Craig.

Thank you David and I wish you and all the folk I consider as friends on this board the very best off Christmases, may yours be as lively as mine will be with the grandchildren and family.

Merry Christmas to you all,

It is that Northern thingee David, the retrousee nose, Joanne Clifton has a lovely one plus the girl sure can dance. No basting this year it will all be done for me although no problem to a lad who basted a camel whilst sitting on its back and trying to make it hover over a Benghazi burner, not the most patient animal.

DD forget the foo foo powder to make you look skinny, just get a Northern lad who likes a nice rounded figure with grab handles.

David, OLA that is OLA not Olga. and Lily it is Ola got the ban for saying it is fixed she should be re-instated forthwith. David will be girlcotting it I am boycotting it but that does not mean I will not be watching with one eye the lovely Joanne, watch her in the group dances, a witch indeed. What David did not say is he has a small bedroom and there is a wall right down the middle of the bed, she would need a jackhammer.

KEF, Thursday at Daughter Pam's for sandwich and chat with a very large ham she left with me to cook. Friday with my Grandchildren at Daughter Sandra's then party at Daughter Margaret's. I may wake up Sunday???

"Oh" and David forget the body son it is the feet that count.

David, take the lights and baubles off and you are left with a fir tree, we have thousands around here. Some of the close ups in the training room without the glitz did surprise me.  I am with KEF, methinks Mr Aliona put his foot down. That is OLA, ALIONA and probably KRISTINA she has been a bit out of sight lately, next year could be a whole new line up, do not drown yourself in the toilet without seeing who comes after.

David, to an eleven year old there is only black and white, they have not discovered fifty shades of grey.

I know David, explain it to a dance mad eleven year old on the phone. "G/Dad did you see strictly" yes darling, "why would the worst dance win" wellll not every one sees things from a dance point of view, " but the best dancer lost" I could hear my G/Son saying "not every thing in this world is fair" not bad for a fourteen year old. Daughter comes on, "if that had happened in the dance school exams there would be a riot and that is only the children the parents would wreck the place" listen to your son not every thing in the world is fair. Dear Hannah keep doing what you do well but do not let it take over your life or there will be disappointment ahead.

Yes there were moments of joy moments of toe curling embarrassment and  times of being over the rainbow, pity it ended as it did.

My last word on it David, Frank.
