So Strictly Come Dancing is over for another year…no more ballroom frolics and latin antics (or should that be ballroom antics and latin frolics?) to fill my Saturday evenings with glamour and wistful longing…and every year there’s a tiny part of me that wonders why I don’t go back to it. Obviously not at the level that these guys dance at…but that all-consuming obsessive passion that from the very first time, filled me with joy.
It makes me wonder what the next year will bring, where I will find the moments of joy and passion that seemed a little thin on the ground this year.
There will be those small things like this week’s ‘snow’ moments or great customer service (had a fab experience with John from Oyster Card this week). And then there are the big changes – life as a single girl and an amazing new job to start in January – which whilst presenting some waters which have not been charted for a while, I have to admit are a little inviting.
In the meantime, there’s a holiday to have and the small matter of a large gent in a red suit that may be popping in to sprinkle a little Christmas cheer. And as life in 2010 has been a tough ride (for many people), a little more magic seems to me to be just ‘the thing’ for 2011.
So as there are only 13 days left in 2010, I’ve decided to look for a little extra sparkle every day to make sure I get plenty of practice for 2011…does welling up during the Strictly Final count?
ps…and on another matter, 1 week people, 1 week…that’s 7 sleeps to go (just in case you missed the widget-thingy on my blog). Hope you’ve been good this year!
pps…and congrats to Strictly winners Kara and Artem – you were my favourite!
