It's My Party ... (1)

And I'll Post What I Want To! 

This Wednesday is my birthday, and so I'm having a birthday week! I've had my hair done today, and I'm meeting a friend after school with the kids. She actually shares the same birthday date as me, so we're likely to have celebratory coffees later.

So, this week on my blog, to celebrate on my blog the 20th anniversary of my 18th birthday, I thought I would  post all things that make me particularly happy. And hopefully they will make you happy, too.

Of course, you know what these 'things' will be! Let's go along the theme of if I could invite anyone to my party... who would I invite?

John Thornton
Number 1 for today, with just finishing North and South, recommended to my by Morton Gray, I think my first 'party' blog post should go to Richard Armitage! His broody, reserved character as John Thornton was giving Colin Firth's Mr Darcy a run for his money.

as John Thornton, again!

Guy of Gisborne
I first met Richard as Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood... And must admit I preferred him over Robin (in the looks department) any day. And well, what woman doesn't like a bit of bad boy... medieval bad boy, too.

Unfortunately, being a writer, or at least trying to be, and having to give up TV, I sadly don't get to watch him in Spooks. Plus, I think my husband would get suspicious with all my sighing and whimpering.

I do tend to go for blonds (you'll see as the week progresses) over darker haired men, but Richard has fantastic blue eyes... and that's my weakness. I also love his nose, for some strange, random reason. Won't even talk about his lips. Makes me go wobbly.

Welcome, Richard, to my party! Make yourself comfortable and help yourself to a glass of bubbly, we're going to be here all week! 


  1. Ooh, good choice - I'm doing a little sighing and whimpering of my own right now! Can't wait for the rest of the week.

  2. hmmm, very good choice.

    *clinks glasses with Richard*

    Look forward to the rest of the week. This is a great idea, Teresa :-)

  3. He is rather dreamy isn't he? I've not got to think of four more at least... though, probably won't be that hard when I think about it.

    Hope Richard doesn't get jealous!

  4. I get the feeling this is going to be a good week. :D

  5. Have a wonderful birthday week. Love the first pic of Richard - swoon. Mx

  6. Abso-bloody-lutely, Becky!

    Thank you, Morton. I intend to! Not sure how much writing I'll get done but I'll try. (Too busy swooning over my party guests).


I love reading your comments and I will try to reply when I can. Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to comment.
