January 1st, 2016


So, who can believe ...

It's 2016 already?  Where the heck did 2015 go?

It was a funny old year.  From a personal point of view, everything was ticking along happily; from a work point of view, everything went to shit; but from a fandom point of view, I have never before felt so inolved and so blessed as I feel to be a part of this amazing group of people.

I met so many of you in person, and that was special, so very special to be able to finally enjoy real hugs as opposed to virtual hugs!  I also went to three conventions and took part in Reverse Big Bang for the first time (thanks amberdreams, you are totally my enabler!)

So here it is, because everyone else is doing it and if I ever did have an original thought in my head, it would be very lonely, my fandom review of 2015!

And thus were a million fanfics born ...

Mr D and I decided to treat ourselves this morning, so as the coffee shop in our village wasn't open this morning, we headed over to one we knew would be open, which was on a trading estate a few miles away.

After breakfast, we wandered over to browse in a couple of the superstores.  Mr D always heads for Halfords, a chain that sells car and bike peripherals which holds absolutely no interest for me, and I headed to Hobbycraft, a store that sells art and craft supplies which I'm drawn to like a moth to a flame!

I was browsing round some sketch pads when Mr D, obviously done in Halfords, came over to join me, and our conversation went like this ...

Me: All done?

Mr D: Yep

Me: Did you get anything?

Mr D: Yeah, a tin of bike grease and a bottle of wet lube.

Me: O.o


Thus were a million fanfics born.
