I’m dreaming of a BBC Christmas

My husband sang to me last night in his sleep. Ten years ago, I would have been afraid, but ten years ago he would have probably sang in spanish and that is just downright frightening at 2 am.

It feels like summer here instead of Christmas which is abnormally normal for Southern California. Wake up to ice on your plants and grass, and by afternoon it’s about 80 degrees. So, I find the best method for getting dressed is layering a tank top, then sweater, then jacket with jeans. That way you can peel the onion and then layer it back on. But who are we kidding, the past few weeks I’ve just stayed in my pajamas until 11 am, then changed into a tank top, then changed back into my pajamas by dinner time. It’s flu season, so it’s really not worth leaving the house anyway, right? Right.

Aside for the obvious exciting upcoming holidays, I have a few other things to look forward in the coming weeks. Mainly centered around my BBC obsession (I told you before, it’s one of those if-it’s-wrong-I-don’t-wanna-be-right kinda things.)

Midwives. Sighhhhh, I love this show and now that we are past the book it was based off of, I have no idea how this next season will go, but you can be sure I will be watching to find out!

Then, there is the Downton Abbey Christmas special. This will be my Christmas gift this year. If you think I’m exaggerating, then you obviously haven’t seen Season 4 yet, nor do you know that Will and Kate watch this show too, because it’s clearly that respectable and amazing and fit for royalty. Get ready.. I won’t spoil it but I will tell you that if you know who Andrew was from Foyle’s War, then you understand how incredibly perfect it is that Andrew is now a Downton Character. Except he isn’t Andrew, he’s Charles Blake and he is even more darling then Andrew.

And last, but definitely not least (possible one of the best ever if you are as big of a Benedict Cumberpatch fan as I am) is Sherlock. There are just no words to even tell you how much I love John and Sherlock’s dynamic. Or how insane, literally, both their characters are. I have watched nearly every sherlock movie, show, book, you name it, ever made. (When you are homeschooled, and become obsessed with a subject, or in this case a fascination with a character, you have special privileges to do all the “research” you need to do. Thanks Mom.)


I’ve almost run out of BBC’s to watch. Actually, I may have already run out, don’t tell!  So if one of my british friends reading this could inform your people to start filming at triple speed I would be grateful. xxoo
