Spooktacular Strictly Come Dancing: Week 6

Helloooooo, and welcome to a spooky, scary, spectacular of a Halloween special. As things hot up at Hellstree, the costumes come out, the wacky make-up is at it’s best, and fun personalities dance across the ballroom in the most entertaining night of the series. Week 6 is always the turning points, where the worst guys start to to linger at the bottom, the guys in the middle take off, and the guys at the top really get into their stride. There is an extra pro dance, there is a lots of awesome outfits, and we get to see Count Dave Arch in all his finery.

Bruno is back (which I’m not actually sure I am happy about) as Beetlejuice, Craig has dressed as the Joker, Darcey channelling Red Riding Hood, and Shirley absolutely killing it as Cruella De Vil. There are spiders and ghouls, witches and the Mother of Dragons, what more could you want?

Claudia looks pretty in her flapper style dress, it must be hard for her to get into the Halloween mood after everything with her daughter a couple of years ago, and Tess looks fierce in her deep red velvet  SYMMETRICAL dress.

Top Ten Tuesday: Spooktacular Halloween Freebie

tttGuys, I am still sick. My daily blogging has flown miles out of the window as I just don’t have the energy, we had Emma’s birthday, so shopping and calzone had to take a precedence, and it’s been a weekend that was partially full of reading (due to the 24hr readathon). Tonight is the leaving do for the lovely girls in the office that are going travelling for the next few months/years, and I was looking forward to it. Sadly a week of early starts, overtime, and sickness have stopped my plans to see them off, and so instead, I’m remembering to write this post, beginning my NanoWriMo plans, and (re) watching The Proposal.

Anyway, enough with the whiny moping about my life, and on wards with this spooky themed Top Ten Tuesday post.  For all you lovely people who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved. click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic.
