I’M sitting comfortably, I have a glass beside me, glasses on nose I’m ready. I check the clock and switch on the television, one minute to the start of my highlight of the week, yes I’m a Strictly fan. The programme begins with the glitter ball spinning and the music begins. All human life is there; lights creating pictures, beautiful movements, athletic young men, , beautiful women twirling feathers, sequins (briefer than the last series), feet moving with incredible speed, gorgeous colours, lights, make-up, music, what’s not to like? A varied cast of characters , the villein (Craig), the kind thoughtful fairy godmother (Darcy), the serious expert (Len) and the exuberant funny comic ( Bruno). Far be it from me to mention a script in a live programme, shall we say a pantomime with breath-taking elegant movement in place of jokes. I love it.
I have my favourites, there is a certain charisma about some professionals and a boyish charm about others. I’m sure you will have your own favourite.
I have been a teacher and a lecturer for a number of years. I am married with two sons. I'm interested drama, films, TV, books, society in general, poverty and riches and political systems.
