Strictly Come Dancing Live Show was fab - u - lous. It's a modern day reinvention of pantomime. Jolly good family fun - if you like that sort of thing. Those who watched the TV version will be amazed to hear that Simon Webb won this time - his Argentine Tango was amazing.
FC6 spent the day with OH yesterday and apparently all went well. OH is now out trying to think of presents for her 16th. I've suggested they go out shopping together on her birthday so she can choose for herself and it will give them something to do!
Watched Wolf Hall last night - read the books and it's interesting to see how it is being adapted for telly. I can't see it living up to the likes of Criminal Minds etc Coco. Now I don't want to offer any spoilers, but I suspect heads will roll.
I appear to be on a residential - not due home until Thursday night. Joy to the world. I have to make a run for it on Thursday evening as we go to see Striclty Come Dancing Live Show in Nottingham, but I'll be back to the hotel by late bedtime so they won't send out a search party.
Just popping in during a quick break to say hello, yay the running, cycling, swimbling and gardening!? ((((((lurgified, cold, miserable))))
It has been confirmed. FC6 will join us on Monday. It's the week of her 16th birthday. That'll be interesting then.
Read back a while ago and have forgotten much. There was a Ralph, an interview, some romance, a lot of swimming, an ickle back cat hostage, a birthday, some cake baking and some lurgy.
What you may not have noticed in your busy lives, is, that at approximately 7.20 am a minor miracle took place in the midlands. Run 3 survived - that's not just 3 runs in one year but also in one week. You can call me Paula.
Also met possible FC6 today. Things looking positive, we are happy to accept, just need her and her social workers to consider a couple of things such as her desire to discover more about Islam and get more involved and the fact that we don't run a Halal household and will never be fully able to. That and she wants a puppy. ..... don't we all, apart from the cats, and the OH
((((Daffers)))) Hope today is a better one. Last time I went to the dentist I was diagnosed with 'cracked tooth syndrome'. The advice don't ever eat one that side of my mouth again. Don't you just love dentists!
Yay for rhino babies
(((((Penny))))) hope the MRI is positive and that she'll soon mend.
FP - obviously good trainers to save your foot from impalement
Happy anniversary Chuggy - sounds like an 'interesting' present.
Well, my well travelled running kit, which has been to many a destination but never been out of the case got to see some scenery. Managed to get out for half an hour in the freezing temperatures. Someone chose a mostly uphill route and wasn't a happy bunny.
Also potential FC6 is visiting on Friday. 15 nearly 16 year old girl. If it works out she will be coming to stay with us as a long term placement.
Happy Thursday - I wonder what the weather will bring today
