Ah yes - memes are a great aid to procrastination aren't they! I've been tagged with this one by Cally, so will need to give it some thought!

JJ said...

Oh thanks so much Leigh, my head is empty of stuff other than my articles. I was so glad of this.

BUT, I so want my tea party with the men now ... and ... well ... I can't, can I? It's just pretend... *sniffs*

Leigh, Yes, of course you can come to mine ... because I loved your women and I tried really hard not to steal any, but failed, so if I can join you too. I only stole Judi Dench, when really i loved them all. Except I might've made Maggie Smith come as McGonagall, which might embarrass her if no one else was in character!
