I love going the through the previous one, transferring all birthday dates and other essential annual details before writing a word about the new year. This particular diary also contains inspirational or motivational homilies and pages in which to record submissions and their outcome. It also contains lots of blank pages at the end and I've never really made proper use of these. But now that I have my new diary, I'm determined to fill those blank pages with some of the writing exercises mentioned at the beginning of each month. The excitement at filling its pristine pages has begun!
I don't know how many of you watch Sherlock, starring the mesmerising Benedict Cumberbatch. I love it and really enjoyed these latest three episodes, particularly the hilarious and moving wedding one from last week. Martin Freeman is excellent in any part and makes a wonderful Watson. I also love Mark Gatiss as Mycroft - as well as his many writing talents, along with writer Steven Moffat. Last night's final episode in this series also had the great addition of Lars Mikkelson, the actor I adored in the first series of The Killing, although he played an exceptionally dark character in Sherlock and was almost unrecognisable.
Hopefully, there's another series in the pipeline, especially after that last image of the supposedly dead Moriarty's face and chilling words: 'Did you miss me?' Yes!
