sally_maria: (Dreamsheep Doctor Who)
Still squeeing...

When I heard that the 50th Anniversary episode was going to be shown in cinemas, I knew it was something I wanted to be part of. Yes, there was a risk of being distracted by bad behaviour, but I wanted to be part of the occasion. After all, when was the last time Doctor Who was in the cinema - Peter Cushing and the Daleks? In reality, my brother and I had a great time, sharing with a varied audience whose only real thing in common was a love of the Doctor - older couples who may have been watching the show from the beginning, families with children and lots of young people.

Cut for spoilers, just in case )

Also a new Doctor Who vid by [personal profile] shinyjenni - Into the Blue a great addition to celebrating 50 years.

It's about love.
sally_maria: Sarah Jane Smith and the Brigadier from classic Doctor Who (Sarah Jane and Brigadier)
Yesterday was a good day.

For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I've been thinking for a little while that it would be nice to get a comfortable chair for my bedroom, so I can sit in there with my laptop. I really wasn't sure where to start, but after seeing lots of expensive and not at all the right sort of chairs online, I decided to look in the various charity second-hand furniture shops in town. I found exactly what I was looking for in the Sue Ryder shop - not just the comfortable armchair I thought it was but actually a La-Z-Boy (think the US pronunciation) recliner, in pretty good condition, for less than £40. :-)

In order to get the chair into my room, I had to do some clearing up of the Piles of Junk(TM) that always accumulate because companies will insist on sending me stuff, and lots of TS paperwork. After a couple of hours, I had a lot of recycling, some rubbish, and some much more organised paperwork - it really felt like I'd achieved something.

Finally, to top off an excellent day I finally managed to finish screen 133 on Candy Crush, which I've been stuck on for weeks. :-) I'm sure I'll be reverting to the mean soon, but in the meantime I'm enjoying it.

Apart from Arthur in a towel. ;-)

Thank you to everyone who replied to my last post. There's no immediate prospect of a sale, but things are moving on, so I hope to have some better news about it soon.

In the meantime, I thought I would resume normal service and talk about the things that make me happy.

Cut for teal deer )
sally_maria: (Rodney - Happy Dance)
I went to the breakfast table this morning and found a package, which I wasn't expecting at all.

There was a card with it, which was sealed, with actual sealing wax, which is so cool - I had to make sure I kept that intact, for posterity. :-) And inside the package was a wonderful necklace from the lovely [personal profile] gayalondiel. :-)

Thank you so much, my dear - you've made my day and sent me to work with a great big grin on my face. I may not be able to avoid Rodney-style happy dances. ;-)
