So that’s it for another Strictly Week – only three more to go, which makes me feel a bit sad, but also mildly elated at the prospect of Christmas/getting my weekends back.
Thank you all for joining in and sharing your thoughts and musings, you are very much the icing on my sponge, and it would all be a bit dry and tasteless without you. As if by magic, you can read my review of Ed’s best bits here, otherwise I’ll see you next week! Hx
