Doctor.... no!


...the Doctor David is leaving us for pastures new after 3 more special episodes,
but not until end of 2009 ....
and just when I have come out forom behind the sofa!

Tennant and Ecclestone (Chris not Bernie)
have both been sublime and added new dimensions to the role
only previously dreamt about or glimpsed in the Star Trek canon ....

Matt Smith, 26 from Northampton,
has been seen I hear in 24 hour party people and with Rose in the Ruby and Smoke of????


I await 2010 with unbated breath and palpitation free heart,
as this choice at first impression reminds me of and
I can only describe him from my perspective,
as a boy who looks like a cross between a new romantic punk Duran Duran reject
after a few rounds with Mickey Rourke,
did you catch the nose on the boy?
He will l'm sure grow into his face by his late 30's,
which many will now go on and no doubt describe as an interesting or an edgy look.

His Mum will be so proud, won't she!

  1. My 85-year-old mum commented that Matt Smith reminded her of a fop from Eton or Harrow!

  2. Not a doctor Who fan so remain unmoved. Was very scared of the daleks when I was a kid though

  3. Well, I saw the bit on TV yesterday where they showed him during his first interview for the job, and though he may not be anybody's idea of a pin up, I think his acting talent will let him shine. My personal favourite Who? Why, Tom Baker of course...Dig that scarf!

  4. Was really hacked off it wasn't that guy who was in Peep Show and the Survivors. He looked a real favourite to be the first black doctor Who. But no, they had to have THIS one! Fed-up! xxx

  5. I was also one of the hoards of people getting themselves worked up as the announcement neared. That in itself is quite sad, of course, but not half as sad as the fact that said announcement left me utterly under-whelmed.

    The feedback on my blog and elsewhere seems to suggest that everyone was taken unaware but that the decision has split the viewing public down the middle.

    All we can do, of course, is sit tight and wait and see what they come up with. At worst, of course, it'll give us all an hour of our Saturday nights back again! ;)

  6. THIS is the new Dr Who????? (I'm away, out of the country, so please excuse me)

    I really hope this is like when Daniel Craig was named as James Bond and everyone thought he was going to be pants and then... oh, and then... came THOSE swim trunks... things looked up pretty soon after that!

  7. I'm reading this as I watch a documentary about Swarms...narrated by David Tennant with his never expected Scottish accent...and the new Doctor has a lot to live up to...good luck!

  8. I love Doctor Who. My favourites are David Tennant, Tom Baker and Christopher Ecclestone (in that order).

    I watched Dr Who Confidential to get the low down on this new Doctor. Despite my shock at seeing someone so odd - and a bit kooky looking - I think Matt's going to be great.

    For a start - it's not essential to fancy the Doctor. He IS an alien. Also, I thought I saw some of the edginess in Matt's manner. He'll have a dark side, he'll be slightly mad. And we'll get used to the hair.

    Bring it on!

  9. Oops, meant to say 'young and kooky looking'. It just got typed as 'odd'. Freudian slip.

  10. David Tennant has been the best for me, so far. I'm afraid this new guy id going to drive me mad. 'GET THAT HAIR OUT OF YOU EYES..NOW!

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…

..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
