Got up at 8.15

Sam rang at 8.00
He said he was going into Stafford with Mark
He also said he would phone again but didn't
Watched 'Murder on the Orient Express' on my brothers video
(this was such a novelty having a video player, it was a 'beta max' too, which was to be the future but turned out not to be. The machine was a huge top loading thing. It was also a time when you had to pay a large deposit to hire films from the video shop. No Blockbusters in those days!!)
I am up to the arm holes on my jumper

Last night it was announced who the new and 11th Dr Who is going to be.... Matt Smith
Can't say that I have ever heard of him but I suppose over the years I hadn't heard of others until they became Dr Who.
The most memorable one for me was Tom Baker, maybe because he had such a long run as the Dr (1974 -1981) but he was not a favourite of mine ... I have loved watching Jon Pertwee (Dr 3), Christopher Eccleston (Dr 9) and David Tennant Dr 10).
Look forward to 2010 to see how the Dr regenerates .... gosh it seems such a long time off!!!
