Totally Mental?!…

OK…it’s that time again! The deadline for ‘These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things’ latest challenge is this evening & as usual, I have only just completed my LO at the eleventh hour!! But hey…I’ve only actually ever missed ONE deadline completely, so in my book, I’m doing OK!!!!

This time the challenge was ‘My Favourite TV Show’ so I thought about it & made a list of all my favourites over the years…Friends…Dr Who…Frasier…or maybe go a little further back…The Goodies…Dallas…Fawlty Towers…The Young Ones. The list just kept getting longer & then I thought I’d just go with a current favourite…a toss-up between ‘Larkrise to Candleford’, which has just finished & The Mentalist, which has just started a new series! I went with the latter, just because it is actually on at the moment!!

Simon Baker, an Aussie hunk who plays the title role of Patrick Jane. What is it about Australian men that makes them such great eye candy?  Mel Gibson was another who only had to smile to make me go weak at the knees!!!

But that aside, I love the whole mix of characters & how the plots & subplots are interwoven through each episode & series. This weeks plotline had so many twists & turns I didn’t dare leave the sofa in case I missed something crucial to the plot…perfect TV!!!

So there you have it! I’m off now to pop a chicken in the oven & peel some spuds!  Mum-in-Law arrived this afternoon & we’re having a family roast tonight, followed by apple crumble, which I may or may not be able to resist!!
Ah well, at least it’s fruit based!!!

Thanks for stopping by & hope to ‘see’ you again soon!

Funny, I just can't get the boys in the house interested in this one and they usually end up outvoting me and switching to something else!

Love the doodling on your layout :)

Great LO! I watched "The Mentalist" in Germany and it was one of my favourite show! Haven't watched it in the UK yet, but will soon have a look at it. Hope I understand everything ;-)
