Romantic fairytale endings....

I am awash with romance and sequins, music flows through my veins and my feet dance to the passion of the music....

Ah, twas the night of the Strictly Come Dancing final and a televisual feast. I am drunk on the romance of the winners Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev. I may have to wear a floaty dress and high heels for at least a week for jeans and trainers would somehow dampen the feathery quality of my heart. I want to float around a dancefloor in the arms of a handsome man...

My dreams lately seem to be taking on my televisual watching. There's been one two many zombies lurching their way around my subconscious lately but I'm hoping they will be banished for good and replaced with the magic of sequins and the ballroom. I can't believe it is over for another year. My favourites won; they are so romantic and beautiful together, I have come over all soft and tearful.

It was a joy to watch every contestant ... and special mentions should also go to my second and third favourties - the delightful SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSScoTT and the inspirational Pamela Stephenson, who made it to the final, scored a perfect 40 on, I think, three occasions and is older than the other two finalists put together. Pamela, we salute you!

I delayed posting this because I wanted to paint something, but time is not on my side so we'll just 'borrow' a picture from the BBC.


  1. I have never seen this show, but I love to watch dancing in all it's forms.

  2. I agree with you it was a fabulous nights viewing. Next will be Dancing on Ice which I also love. Annette x

  3. Awe....loved your post!!
    I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!! Here's to being creative in 2011!! xo

  4. Hi Lisa, Fun! Wonderful description of how watching the dance made you feel. I imagine the dancers would be touched to know they move you. Excellent writing!

  5. Ah, the romance of ballroom dancing! Thanks to you Brits, we have several good dancing programs here now. My favorite is So You Think You Can Dance because it's young people working so hard to develop their talents. I get involved in their stories and struggles. But the art form is wonderful! Happy Holidays!

  6. I missed all of this!!!! I have read a bit about this on a dance blog and I can't believe I never ever watched one of these shows....oh boy!!! thank heavens for the internet!!!

    Happy Holidays!!!!!

  7. Great post - your imaginative writing had me grinning. It sounds as if you're a little like me and occasionally get a tad over involved in tv land and carried away with romantic & pretty things :-)
