|Valentine's Flowers from Mr B|
This post was meant for Valentine's Day but every time I went to the computer yesterday there was a small boy attached to it, must contact the Computer Help Desk about this..*
Dahlings, I think we have known each other long enough for me to open up to you about my innermost feelings and emotions. Normally I am very private person ....(falls off chair laughing).
I would like to share with you my love for Mr B.
For yes, I love him, he is adorable.
And let me count the reasons why:
I love his blue blue eyes
I love his Northern roots and the way he says "sing-ging"
I love his sense of humour
I love that he is losing his hair just a little bit
I love his terrible dancing
I love his voice
I love his skill with words and composition
I love that he has won a number of Ivor Novello awards for his song writing
I love that he is a multi-millionaire performer, recording artist and record producer....
WHAT? WHAT AM I GOING ON ABOUT?
Oh, you thought I was talking about Mr Blighty? Noooooo.
I am rambling about Mr Gary Barlow, lead singer of Take That, former X factor judge and national treasure in the making..
I missed the whole Take That phenomenon first time round but now I am in just the demographic for Gary and the boys Take That Two. There are loads of middle aged ladies very partial to Gary and the boys, many of them will have been fans first time round - there is a tremendous amount of goodwill for the band. I had a lovely chat with one of the older lady librarians the other day and she had been to see Take That in concert last summer.
My nearest and dearest find my crush on Gary hilarious but really Mr B (my Mr B) only has himself to blame as he gave me this for Christmas, which I found fascinating.
And then I read this. Also very interesting. And funny.
And Mr B got me these too.
Mr B (my Mr B) also tried to get me tickets for a charity concert Gary did in the Albert Hall just before Christmas but it was all sold out (drat those librarians....)
Boys 1 and 2 find Gary and his sing-ging totally uncool so I have the added benefit of being able to threaten to play Gary in the car if they misbehave - "Nooooo, Mummy, please not Gary....nooooo!"
Also the risk of humiliation if their school mates hear Gary blaring out of the car at drop off "Want you back, want chu back, want chu back for good .."
I leave you with Mr B (the other Mr B) doing some dance moves at the Albert Hall concert..he is not afraid to make fun of himself and his boy band days..
