Strictly is back!

S/V, deleted them all as mine will be a glass of port (got it given) and the lovely feeling as I watch of warm chocolate flowing over me, better take the TV in the greenhouse otherwise it makes a mess of the carpet, do not want Joanne playing war with me on Tuesday.

I am with you this is the best series yet and I have seen them all, also heard Len come out with far worse jokes and nothing said about it. Waiting for the foot work and posture to improve with some of them although one or two are not doing so badly in that department. No favourites though do look forward to what Ed will do next.

The boy left for his own reasons and so be it. Joanne worked some bits of the film into the Choreography which you would expect, I thought it cleverly touched the edges of the film and the whole brilliant.

We move on and I for one have no favourite dancers as yet, cannot even guess at who will be out this week. I am unexpectedly enjoying the show from the beginning something that has not happened other years, Saturday I will sit back in my chair and let it flow over me like warm chocolate, lovely.


"Oops" giving secrets away there.

What is your weather like? (2)

Traveled in early years through historic lands

Found in reality they were not so grand

Landed back in Elysian fields of green

Not arid and dangerous as where I had been

Had thoughts of going to southern continents

Green England won where I am surely content

This Nation Sun Rain Seasons and balmy clime

Is where I wish to end my time.

That Joyce is something you learn after spending years abroad as against a couple of weeks holiday, there's no place like home, they should write a song about it.


PS is still hissing it down.

Stockton imagine me as Ko-Ko singing.

"The flowers that bloom in the spring tra la, have nothing to do with the case.

The rain is a tangible thing tra la,

and falling at quite a fast pace, tra la

And falling at quite a fast pace,

That's what I mean when I say and I sing

Oh bring on the flowers that bloom in the spring,

Tra la la la la

Tra la la la la

Bring on the flowers that bloom in the spring.

With apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan.


Nice gesture but maybe more?

"I see rain drops falling from the sky, B@@@@@ one hit me right in the eye, why can't they just go on passing me by, I wonder why I wonder why.

The North wind blows across the cold North Sea, bringing all this rain to me, I think I'll move to sunny Italy and nice blue sky I wonder why".

Stockton back to normal and apologies to the song writer.

Joyce, no we are sitting whilst granny Smith does her how to peel an apple dance on the pole. Imagine one of those magic apple pealing machines buzzing round at high speed, you end up with the core or should that be "Caw", the hard part is trying to stuff the old white fivers down past her Stays, those Whale bones hurt your fingers. The do serve very strong Bovril to keep us awake till Dawns early light when we race off on our pension mobiles flat out at 8MPH rousing the sleeping neighbours. When you stop having fun book your ticket for Switzerland.

Some of today's so called "Celebs" seem very fragile compared with the old style "Stars" who had steel backbones. The papers are saying (guessing) it was the fracas with Len, it did rather surprise me when he opened up and Len did give him that look. Most of us know you take it on the chin and come back with a better performance, there is no gain arguing with judges. In two years of dancing my granddaughter came up against one judge who marked her well down as against her normal markings, my Daughter was not happy we told her go with it, that judge would have her own opinions and as it happened she never came back and the markings went back to normal for her. What ever the reason we are all allowed our own opinions and I would not questions others opinions as I hope they would not question mine. I was rather glad he went.

Sorry for the misprint "M&B" it should have been "M&V" meat and vegetables although it normally got called "M&D" meat and Diarrhea, looked and tasted like it. Bacon and egg in a tin was called "B&BP" because cooking it by opening the tin and warming it in hot water it looked exactly like bacon and baby poo. Water was rationed so when I was dedicated section cook for the day (quite often because I could cook) I opened the tins rescued the bacon and fried it in olive oil heating the egg with some of my magic spice box separately, the result was instead of cooking for 25 it would end up as most of the unit, well there would always be some eat the food cold straight from the tin. The mistake was it being late and I was rushing out for the all night pensioners Pole Dancing club, believe that if you will.

I am with Obelixx, he knew what he signed up for, will he hand back the £50,000 of our money he got. I got the impression he did not like the training, long sessions of hard work, nor the comments from the Judges. Karen must be gutted.
