Almost Perfect

The head is a little fuzzy this morning seeing as I had my very own awards after show party last night consisting of a bottle of Wolf Blass accompanied by ham, egg and chips (not just any old ham though - it was Waitrose free range, hand carved)!  Whilst the nice lady on the deli counter was carving away and telling me all about it my prospective purchase, I stood with images of little packets of ham roaming free amongst the straw bales before an evil farmer rounded them up to take them to the place where all packets of ham don't want to be! And that was before the Wolf Blass!

I'm liking this new organised home life we are experiencing since the change in working routine! The house is clean, the fridge is stocked and the three of us have the weekend stretching out in front of us - bliss! The ironing pile is still threatening to breech the spare room door but I've decided that I refuse to be a total Stepford Wife! Besides... Stepford Wife would not be typing away in her PJ's whilst Small Child was glued to an up to date version of Magic Roundabout! 
I must say I don't like this new version of the old classic... it looks like a computer game with its clever animation. Where is the stoned looking Dylan and the slightly un-hinged Zebedee of my childhood? MM told me once that I used to cry every time it finished! Mind you it's the same now with Grey's Anatomy!

My son has just discovered Dangermouse and I'm chuffed to bits. Now if I could just get him into Count Duckula my dreams will be answered!

I remember crying during the school summer holidays when a programme called White Horses finished.
From what I remember is what black and white and a badly dubbed Eastern European version. For some inexplicable reason I loved it.

WtW, I loved White Horses aswell! I can even still sing the theme song, that's how sad I am...as I recall the main horse was called Boris.

Tara.. I once worked with a man who loked like Penfold from Dangermouse - it was most off putting!

WTW and NSM - I don't remember this White Horses program but it sounds like it had a lasting effect on you both! I do remember Black Beauty tho!

Confused TTF - I persuaded Other Half that it was OK to pre-order the next series of Greys on DVD when it is released! Pals are already sweating in anticipation!
