Day 12- A song that reminds you of your best friend

It was hard to decide what piece of music reminded me of Toni ... we have listened to a lot, and shared a lot over the last 12 years.  However in the end I chose the Christmans Carol "While Shepherds Watched" .... Toni used to go to Church as a kid, and like many it has put her off going!  When we met I managed to persuade her to go to a carol service (and in actual fact she has been to one most years since).

When she got the hymn sheet she was pleased that the list finished with her favourite ... one she had learnt from her Gran.  However .... this is the tune they had ... and she has never forgotten, or forgiven them!


If you want to have an un-seasonal sing-song, to what most consider the right tune -

Oooops - I only have a Wise Men icon, not a Shepherds!

A James song that reminds me of Toni would have to be Angel.  For the same reason James wrote it for his then girlfriend ... she is an Angel and she just doesn't know it.

Which Dr Who Companion Am I?

Snagged from lilachigh 

Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator. 

You're Susan!

For a fugitive from your own people, you're one of the most innocent of the companions, probably because your grandfather is so protective of you. You bring out the tenderness behind the Doctor's bluster and occasional coldness. You are implicitly trusting of the Doctor, no matter what he gets you and the others into, and your confidence in him helps others rally around him, too. Your sweetness and fondness for humans is the legacy you leave him even after you move on.

She was the first ever companion - of the first ever doctor! But, as a teen, I think that might be a bit wrong! 

As you can see by my icon I do think Jiffy is a bit like K9

I Have A Question To Ask .... Don't Cheat

 A couple of weeks ago, I had to drive to North Devon, and went via this village, just to take this sign ... I wonder how you would pronounce it ... no, don't cheat and Google it ... just guess -


Most towns in Britain have the town they are twinned with listed ... and the 30 is because it is going into the village, hense the speed limit changes.
