Granny's Got Talent

A 75 year British granny who lives in Southern Spain along with a partner forty years her junior, has won Spain's got Talent with her acrobatic salsa. Streuth!!!!!!!!!!!!

So this is what you're supposed to do when you retire! Just goes to show you're never too old. I think I'll stick to blogging though.

Here's the link to the winning dance which unfortunately I can't find on Youtube, just on the Sun's horrible website. Think they've withheld the copyright.

I'm fiddling around at the moment killing time. We're in the middle of replacing all our windows and doors with double glazed units. My husband is convinced it will save us money on our heating bills. I'm convinced the real reason is getting UPVC units means he doesn't have to paint them.

The cats have been hiding under the bed since first thing when the workmen arrived. Probably won't see them for another couple of hours. I'm desperate for the loo but they're all over the house so nowhere is sacred. Might have to go to my daughter's house when I collect Lauren from school.

Meanwhile I'm lucky that it's a beautiful sunny day and it's not too cold or I'd be perished!

I Got Peter Kaye Tickets!

After missing out on seeing Cliff and the Shadows I decided I wanted to see Peter Kaye when he comes to our area. He hasn't toured for seven years since his children were born so I thought I needed to take the opportunity when it came along.

This morning my daughter rang from work and said the tickets were going on sale this morning at eleven o'clock. Trust her to be at work and pass the responsibility to me! Anyway after a lot of phoning and no success I gave up and gritted my teeth to order online and pay the extra charges.

The performances are not until next November so we have a long wait. Never mind something to look forward to.

In the meantime here's a couple of You Tube clips. Apologies for a little bit of bad language but not too much. He gets inot trouble from his Mam and Nanna when he uses it.

I love this one about family weddings. So true!

My Singer 338!

Well here it is my very first sewing machine, the one I got for my 21st birthday in 1966! I know it cost my Mam  a lot to buy it for me...
