No Strictly Blog

I'm very sorry there will be no Strictly bloggage this week as my youngest currently looks like this: So I haven't even had a chance to WATCH the damn thing yet. Hopefully all systems will be resumed as soon as her head stops spinning round. Anyone wants to offer their version I am happy to post it here!

Strictly Shorter

Reet then me darlings, it's that time of the week again, this is going to be short, sweet and with minimal perving (hahahahhah - you don't really believe that do you?) Anyhoo Keeeeeeeeeeep reading: Sophie and Brendan - Foxtrot Lovely, she managed to look really relaxed and elegant and old Hollywood to perfection all the way through this. Fabulous frock dahlinks! Scores - Me - 9 Judges 8,9,9,9 Fiona and Anton - Rumba (?) OH NOES it's return to the Dell'Olio's/Hall/Widdecombe state of affairs. Howay man bonny lass, that poor boy has been through enough. Yeah, I honestly think her biggest problem is her nerves, can they not like, sedate her or summick? Or a couple of G&T's usually sorts me out. They're going to be in trouble fairly quickly if things don't improve Me - 5 Judges 4,6.6.6 Mark and Iveta -Cha Cha Cha   (for some reason in my notes at this point I have written "urgh Brucie I could VOM !" I have managed to block out of my

Strictly Late

Ok my fellow Strictly devotees here is the shit: Opening dance was as dull as bloody ditchwater and Bruce is back...still dull dancing is one hundred per cent better then nay dancing so who am I to whinge. Also, in some hideous DNA malfunctioning error my 6 year old has decided she really loves "that funny man who does the funny dance" so she's not allowed to watch it anymore! Abby and Aljaz - Jive Stompy and a bit slow but a week 3 jive is never going to be that outstanding (mind I said that about a week 2 charleston and look what Sophie did!). Anyway not bad enough to mock not good enough to rave over. She did look beautiful though, another fantastic costume week! Scores: Me - 6 Judges 6,7,8,7 (Len is deluded!) Patrick and Anya - Foxtrot Perfectly pleasant, quite stylish actually if a tiny bit slow. Scores: Me - 7 Judges - 6,7,7,7 Dave and Karen - Paso Doble Telly - give up and go home now because you will never, ever beat that! Horrific and compelling

Strictly - It's BACK!

I'm shocked really how many of you nutters have asked for the return of The Strictly Blog! I love youse for it so it is back, but I can't do all the pics and shiz as it's just too much work and I'm ill. So just the words people I hope that's ok! So here we go - Strictly Week 2 and anyone who has ever read my blog before will know I did a flipping HAPPY dance around the living room when I heard there was no Bloody Brucie this week - WINKLEMAN all the way! I wonder if she'll marry me, I love her sooo much!  On with the dances: 1) Susanna and Kevin - Tango Man she looked AMAZING, the hair, the dress, her already gorgeous face almost Drag Raced up. Stunning. A bit spaghetti armed and hesitant but lovely job, not sure about the choreography, he's  a new boy eh...he has a way to go I think, still we're off to a flying start! Scores - Me= 7.  Judges = 7,8,8,8 2) Tony and Aliona - Charleston (apparently!) Oh dear, and ahhhhh bless. It was blatantly ru
