Not a lot of them - 516 to be precise - but they're there. Typed by me. For the first time in over a year.

Oh, boys, how I've missed you!!

I'm really rubbish at keeping track of things at the moment, so I've managed to miss the birthdays of two people who are very important to me. zinfic and bluespirit_star, I hope you both had wonderful days complete with lots of presents and cake!

So, with little Miss F tucked up safely in bed, a load of chores out of the way, and O out for the evening, I've spent the last hour or so curled up on the couch with a cup of tea and my *beautiful* birthday gift. It came in the post this morning and I can't even begin to tell you how delighted I am. It is a gorgeous book containing a wonderful collection of photos, birthday wishes, quotes, stories and pictures from some of you wonderful people.

I am truly in awe of vida_boheme. Not only is she one of the strongest people I know, but she is also one of the most generous and definitely one of the most talented. The love and care that has gone into making this beautiful book is obvious from the detail on every hand-crafted page. As someone who has basically no artistic talent whatsoever, I am utterly stunned by it.

Inside, there are loads of photos of our boys ♥, lots of really touching comments and wishes, a couple of *wonderful* stories by zinfic and sgamadison, and some beautiful artwork and photos by bluespirit_star, tarlanx, neevebrody, and tangotabby.

Once again, thank you all so much; I will treasure it forever.

I also have to say a big thank you to goddess47 for the v-gift! :)

♥ ♥ ♥

I've just unwrapped the most beautiful birthday present. I'm sitting here all teary and completely overwhelmed. I'll post properly when I'm a bit more coherent, but for the moment: vida_boheme, you are absolutely amazing. ♥ sgamadison, zinfic bluespirit_star, neevebrody, lysambre, lavvyan, d_odyssey, tangotabby, melagan, gyri, tarlanx - thank you all so very much. I can't tell you how touched I am.

♥ ♥ ♥

I've just arrived back home from a lovely holiday in Corfu! We had a fabulous time & little Miss F got her first dip in the sea. Pictures to follow when we've unpacked and got them uploaded...

I just wanted to post quickly to say thank you so much to everyone for their birthday wishes and presents. zinfic wrote me a gorgeous ficlet set in her wonderful Entangled Particles 'verse. Her boys are absolutely perfect and I love them, and her, to bits. bluespirit_star made me a fantastic picture of our favourite boys as penguins, complete with a little baby penguin in a captain's uniform... much like the one she sent Miss F... or should I say, Captain F! You must all also check out vida_boheme's very pretty birthday wishes - yum!! Thank you so much to you all - your kindness means so much to me. ♥

I've not been on LJ much at all recently & feel rather removed from fandom at the moment. I really miss the stories, the boys and all the lovely people here, but there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day recently. I've had some story ideas circulating for some time now and I'm hoping to be able to get some of them down on paper before too much longer... In the meantime, love to you all! *hugs*

... the tip of the first little tooth has appeared!

Sorry that I've not been around much recently. I do check in from time to time & love to catch up with you all. I owe lots of people comments and emails, which I will get around to, I promise. I hope life is going well for everyone!

*hugs f-list*

the BBC's new Sherlock Holmes series is chock full of glee! :)

Right, now back to making baby mush for the freezer...

Unsurprisingly, having a new baby does not leave you with much spare time... I've not had the energy to write anything of late and I've not been on LJ for what feels like forever. Many apologies to everyone for going AWOL - I've missed you and hope to make it back online more often in the future!

Anyway, this recent article got me thinking and tonight, over dinner, O and I were talking about our own personal favourite characters of the last 20 years. Many initially spring to mind and picking my personal top 10 was tricky. I should probably add that we limited ourselves to just one character per show and it is only the last 20 years (thereby discounting many of the great British sitcom characters such as Edmund Blackadder and George Mainwaring).

My 10Collapse )

So, I'm curious, who would be in your top 10?
