Aloada A-Z Childhood Nostalgia: U,V,W,X,Y,Z is for…

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?

Aloada A-Z Childhood Nostalgia: P,Q,R,S,T is for…

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?

Me again! Hello 🙂

Yes, it’s a double whammy today, seeing as I’m terrible at sticking to a schedule and now need to drop us slap bang in the middle of the alphabet, with the letter M.

This was a hard one to nail down. Not due to lack of entries, but the exact opposite. It seems M was the magic letter when it came to shows I watched in the 80s and 90s.

So which has made the list from the multitude I could have chosen?

LATE!

Yes, I’m two days late with this post. Plus, I’m posting on a day that’s supposed to be a day off. But then I was never one for convention…

I decided to have Friday off instead, being the 13th and all. Best to be safe. But then one day off rolled into two. So here we are, on Sunday with the 12th letter in our A-Z: L.

So, for your enjoyment, I bring you dogs, demons and dancing on hillsides. Shall we see which shows are on the table?
