5 things that make me happy

I was tagged by : barbarafromprague (Thanks for tagging me!)

1. Making people laugh

2. Christmastime

3. Receiving post from friends

4.  Singing along loudly (and probably very badly) to a song with friends

5. The lovely combination of my sofa, my cat, and a good TV show

(as usual I’m useless at tagging people, so lets just pretend I’m tagging everyone and whoever fancies doing it can!)




Missing scene in hospital

the continuity improves when Patrick loses it after he has glanced at Shelagh, and as I have said before, the Shelagh reaction in 3.5. (“we both left him to his own devices”) gets some ground…..(not that I felt that Patrick was too emotional in this, but cutting the Shelagh Presence out from the scene was harsh….like she would have run back to the Nonnatus without any contact with him…)

Apologies, I uploaded the bare minimum as I’m in a pub without wifi :)

I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:

Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts…

What I REALLY want though is the layout of the servants quarters, eh
? Which is probably impossible since they move around more than Hogwarts…

A layout of the servants quarters is definitely needed!

Also if anyone is wondering: these plans aren’t particularly accurate now because they were done to promote s3, there’s no boot room or nursery for example. So they have pretty much no relevance to s4 or the upcoming s5 but I thought I’d post them anyway!
