Jo and I were unsure who we wanted to win the Strictly Come Dancing Final on Saturday Night. Kara Tointon and Pamela Stephenson have both danced so well and considering Pamela is the same age as me I think she is unbelievably good. In the end Pamela was knocked out half way through the programme - while leading on the judges points scoring - and the final two dances were between Matt Baker and Kara so I was pleased when Kara and Artem lifted the glitter ball (or rather he did - she had injured her hand badly in the show dance).
Their romance - or proespective romance - probably played a part in the voting but they do make a lovely couple and though her performance in the Final was not as good as it could have been she has danced well throughout the series.
The right three ended up in the final but I would have preferred the judges' scores to have had more say throughout the weeks. Anne Widdicombe managing to last ten weeks was a bit of a travesty when it pushed folk like Jimi Mistri out. Nevertheless it has been an excellent series with only the Hallowe'en weekend letting it down.
Who would ever have believed that I could get so involved in a reality show??? And yet I look forward to it every year now. I wonder who will be in next year's. Barbara Windsor perhaps?

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
