Hello and how are we all on this first day of June?
Since posting every day in April (*cough, cough) to accomplish the A-Z challenge, I’ve taken a month off from the blog to catch up on
sleep other activities.
‘Where have you been?’ I hear you ask. Well, I’ve been to Africa to feed lions.
Out of the two options, feeding lions probably seems the less likely but that is exactly what I had the marvellous opportunity to do!
The last stretch in this gargantuan, never-let-me-do-it-again, failed A-Z challenge! If you didn’t read yesterday’s post, you’ll not be aware that I’ve squashed most of the second half of the alphabet into two posts. Because I can. And also because I was really bad at a daily blog!
Shall we move on?
Let’s get real – I’ve royally failed at this April A-Z daily challenge. What can I say? I could explain that when I got to P, I went out partying instead (kind of…I went to see Derren Brown), or that work has been very stressful or that I had been under the weather.
But whilst all those
reasons excuses are true, the reality is: daily blogging is damn hard! And clearly not for me, as a self-confessed faddist!
However, on this penultimate day of April, I’m going against the grain once more on a ‘day of rest’ to amalgamate entries from P through to T. The intention being that the remaining letters will be covered on April 30th.
So which delights from the nostalgic depths of TV and cinema have earned a place?
I can’t belieeeeeve it! We’re already at the letter O.
And we’re heading back into British comedy history for today’s shows. I’m sure you may have already worked out one of them!
Nothing. Nil. Nada.
N is throwing out few nostalgic memories in the TV variety. In fact, there’s just one. But it was an institution in the world of teatime TV back in the day, and still holds its own now – although I no longer watch it.
I do have another N though, resorting once again to a film of my youth, so all is not lost.
Let’s get on with this tale then…so that it doesn’t go on forever 😉
