Fantasy Football Bedroom (Photo Diary)

Football Bedroom

During the summer of 2008, Mummy and Daddy decorated Daddy's old bedroom from when he was a boy, ready for you so that you had somewhere bigger to play. You had been sleeping in the nursery, which was Auntie Jessica's old room and Mummy and Daddy thought that we may need to keep the nursery for the future in case a brother or sister came along.

Daddy wanted to make you a Gillingham Football Club room, but Mummy was worried that you would grow up and not like football! I said that she was crazy, all boys take after their Daddy's! We had both seen a brilliant football bedroom idea in a book called, Creative Spaces for Kids so decided to model your new bedroom on that, complete with a changing bench and football goal built into the fireplace. Daddy decided to take the idea further and wanted astroturf instead of carpet! Although he did get carried away, he knew when to stop, the floodlight and advertising hoarding ideas he had were sensibly scrapped!!!

Mummy and Daddy took photos all the way through the project so that you would be able to see how your room was made. Daddy was really suprised by the red as he had only ever known the room to be a various shade of blue!

24 : Exile

Film

With the American Screen writers strike hitting at the back end of 2007/ beginning of 2008 many tv shows were unable to film due to lack of scripts. It has had an effect across a lot of television exports, no more so than 24 which was just about to air series 7 when the strike hit.

Not wanting to have a gap inbetween shows the creators of 24 decided to postpone series 7 a full calendar year, much to the annoyance of huge 24 fans like myself.

However, they haven't been sitting there twiddling their thumbs, instead they have been 'making the best series' they can, and as a special treat filming a two hour prequel which will air on Sky One sometime in November.

The following is a teaser trailor of the prequel, named "24 : Exile"



Jack's back, and I for one cannot wait!
