Last night, BBC4 screened two programmes about M&B. Watched both of them and enjoyed them. But there was a really special moment for me in the second one, Consuming Passions. Emilia Fox (as an English lecturer) was showing covers and explaining how they and the heroes changed over the years. DH and I were cuddled up on the sofa. ‘Hmm,’ he says. ‘I wonder if they’ll show one of y–?’
He didn’t get to finish his question. Because, at that precise moment, there on the screen was…
Which made me one very happy bunny indeed. (Especially as today is the day I get my utility room door back. I also lose part of my floor so it’s going to be messy and dusty and decidedly ick around here, but… things are finally moving again after the site meeting.)
Edit: Whoops, almost forgot. As well as being my baby's eighth birthday on Saturday, it was my M&B anniversary. Seventh anniversary of The Call, and sixth anniversary of my first M&B on the shelves. Funny, it still seems like yesterday; yet, at the same time, it feels like such a long time ago.
