Thought I’d pop in a poll for the New Year, and just to show off that I can:))
More on People’s Friend as I’ve been reading it as there’s not much on t.v. is there? The best day was Friday, as we should have gone back to work, but I’d not been too well so we watched some black and whites. 49 steps, then another spy film with a little old lady like Miss Marple called Miss Froy who went missing from a train. One about white feathers and another spy one. So I’m well into the spy stories now. It’s when the comedy, or lack of it comes on that we miss John Sullivan’s ‘Fools and Horses’ or the Two Ronnies. Miranda was funny as usual, but the Royale Family was cringing to watch, and I normally like Mrs. Brown, but the first episode wasn’t too bad, where Mammy thought there were hidden cameras, and she kept saying things like – ‘Oh I’m now going to cook a nutritional meal for all my family with fresh vegetables, no convenience foods around here.’ That was funny, but the second episode with the nativity play wasn’t funny at all. We laughed more at the old episode of Vicar of Dibley. If anyone writes good comedy scripts, that’s you Suzi, I’d send some in to the BBc please, they need something fresher and funnier. I do still like Miranda though, although the faces to camera go on a bit.
There’s a great seasonal story in P.F. by Suzanne Ross Jones. Here’s another modern story as it’s written in the form of e.mail messages. I like the pages where they show covers from years ago as well. Interesting to see how much it’s changed, yet stayed up to date as well. I’m pleased that there are still the classic stories as written by Ginny Stewart who has been writing stories there for as long as I’ve been reading. Lots of puzzles to do as well, so I’m still enjoying the issue, great value for money. I know I go on a bit, but it’s worth it. (The magazine I mean, not me going on:))0
This is my 100th blog post, so for now I’ll say Happy New Year to my followers. I would have done a book giveaway, but you know me, I love all my books far too much for that.
