Yes David they do use the paddles a lot as if up a creek full of crocodiles, and yes she as did some of the others who never made it to the final had dance lessons, many people in local colleges have those lessons some train in art and dance schools, it would be very difficult to find all none dancers. Having enjoyed the full session for what it is half show half competition roll on next year.

DD what will we do next Saturday? well it could be "The last Tango in Stockton" I will be bereft until the next series. I do have the joy of watching my young grandchildren dancing ballroom with more exams next month, brings back memory's for me.

Called it from the start, Caroline, the standard was higher than Strictly has ever seen, loved Simon's Tango.

Glorious morning here in Stockton, sun lighting up the garden shrubbery and not a cloud in the sky, decorations are up for the grandchildren and I have a lovely big box of goodies from Betty's Harogate from my Sister, have to admit to trying the dark Hand made Grand Cru Swiss chocolate, a square each day will be nice if I can be disciplined enough.

Last year at this time was the beginning of the problem that ended with a big operation in August, now all well back to normal, my heart goes out to those with problems and the hope that like me they get through it all and back to enjoying Christmas, I will be with my Daughters and Grandchildren with a huge family party.

Merry Christmas to you all, things are speeding up I may go missing a while.


Preposterous question....

Lyn, I cook large Sunday lunches to give my Daughters a break as they have such busy lives, my puny efforts give them a few hours to sit and talk instead of being on the run as they juggle their own children's and husbands lives for them. The forces taught me to cook sew and repair clothes darn socks and wash my own things something I always did at home when possible. Granddaughter Michelle is a graduate engineer in charge of building then running a new oil plant in Canada, when they were extending their house she drove everything mechanical and proved first class on the big excavator.

If the truth were known women and men were always equal as I found on the farm, they could do all the jobs, wartime saw women doing most jobs men had done my Mother being an electrician. We take the micky out of each other yet would be lost on our own what ever sex, have fun, I am off to invent a cup of tea.

Multi tasking???? Easy, sling the bread in the toaster on auto, the beans in the micro wave on auto, the washing up in the machine on auto, the washing in the machine on auto and set off the auto hoover to wander around the carpet. Drop the beans on the toast, get a coffee from the machine and go watch afternoon TV with your feet up. all invented by men. Sexist no that is what my daughters do!!!!!!

I did feel sorry for Len, he was correct in one was a Rumba with no Rumba in it and the other a Cha cha with no dance steps, to his thinking they should both have gone. The professional choreographers went too far so it is not the Celebs to blame, they both did the best with what they trained for. Neither have much chance against Caroline and Frankie, Simon is coming up on the rails, unless those three fall over, drink too much wine or over indulge the mince pies then Mark is out first leaving the real dance competition.

David it works and I love it. Now we wait and see what the GBP say. Big argument at the party yesterday about Dance Competition or show, a lot of good wine had been quaffed, half are now learning Mum and Dad dancing as they call it the other half round the handbag, ask Dad? Matthew 13 and Hannah 10 yesterday chimed in they are both learning Ballroom and have competitions coming up next month, it is a dance competition to them, who am I to disagree.
