Blue Peter


We have known for a while our Granddaughter was going to be one among many of a choir visiting the BBC Blue Peter studio today. Here they are singing away on T.V. this afternoon.


We watched out for Kiann as they all filed into the studio.
Nana was shouting.... wave, wave... as if Kiann could hear me...

Where is she ?
Haven't a clue... but I do know I have to wipe away orange juice from the T.V.


I was putting cloves into oranges at the time. Maybe fingering the T.V. wasn't the best idea I've ever had.... oranges and cloves smell good though....

As for kids T.V. and Blue Peter, not the same Blue Peter programme I remember...... I think Kiann must have got a Blue Peter badge. Though I've never seen one... the height of my childhood was to have a Blue Peter badge... well, actually, it wasn't, I wanted a hamster slightly more.
Well done Kiann...

How special for Kiann and for you! Even if you can't find her, you know she must have been the prettiest one there and the one with the sweetest voice, right, Grandma?

Even having a photograph didn't help me spot her. Oh well, never mind, it sounded just wonderful! :-)

How brilliant I bet she was excited. BP has changed over the years. Not a bit like I remember it!

How lovely - hope you taped it!
I wanted a Blue Peter badge but wasn't prepared to do anything for it...a hamster would probably have been more fun for me too!

Ha! Reminds me of my husband yelling at the hockey players. However, he keeps his mitts off the TV screen. We haven't a clue as to who Blue Peter is/was.
Truly exciting being on the telly. Good for her 0 even if you couldn't see her. It is something she will remember.

Oh you must have been so proud of her! We can just imagine the excitement that you must have felt... knowing she was there!
And orange smelling tv's are not such a bad thing,,, its a memory, and everytime you smell oranges and cloves, you will remember this happy time!

I'm married to a Blue Peter badge holder. I will have to bathe in the reflected glory because no way was I that good as a child. LOL

What a memorable Christmas for your grandaughter.

OOO Elizabethan pomanders! Love making them the real smell of Christmas!
