doctor whoWell, April is here and with it a month of challenges. This post (A for Allons-y) kicks off the first day of the A-Z blogging challenge, and Camp NaNo also begins today.
Right now I feel vastly unprepared for both, but that’s okay. It will be a rollicking month and we’ll take each day as it comes. I’m down with that.
So, why Allons-y? Well, it starts with A… and, it means ‘Lets go!’ which felt like a great sentiment with which to start the month. But also, because I’m a massive Doctor Who fangirl, even though I came late to it.
In fact, I fell in love with the Doctor in Season 5, when I was up in the wee hours of the morning, feeding my newborn baby. The seasons always come later here in NZ (or at least, back then they used to), so it was fairly early on in Matt Smiths’ time as The Doctor. I was instantly hooked, andΒ set it up to record the series so that any time I was awake in the night the Doctor could keep me company.
It was my thing, my special show. Back then Hubby wasn’t interested in watching it, so once Natalie started sleeping better, and I no longer had that span of time in the night to watch I would take Doctor Who nights as my down time, the kids in bed, Hubby on his PC, and me on the couch in peace, escaping the real world for an hour.
I loved having it to myself, but I also love that now I get to share it. Having watched 7+ series with my husband, and lots of specials with my girls, I can see it’s becoming a family thing. And I couldn’t be happier about it πŸ™‚
