My random ramblings

Hello all my names Tracy and I hail from sunny West Bromwich. I mad about football and I support my local team West Bromwich Albion (and yes I did cry when we were relegated from the Premiership last season) I'm also a huge fan of Green Wing.

Well tonight's the night, it is the second leg of West Bromwich Albions play off semi final against the old enemy Wolverhampton Wanderer's. We go into this game 1 goal in the lead on aggregate (we managed a very slender win at the custard bowl on Sunday 3-2 to the Baggies) Now all we need to progress to a play off final against Derby and Wembley on the 28th May is a draw tonight. So I'm pleading for everyone to send there good luck and best wishes to the Baggies, and to me as from 7.45 tonight I will be just sooo nervous (in fact it's already started to build) I have my ticket and I will be there, but I really don't think I can watch, this is not an experience I am looking forward to. I am beginning to wish I hadn't bought a ticket and could hibernate under by duvet tonight, and only check the score when I was feeling brave !

P.S.....ooh a football blog from a girl, never mind I'm sure I can think of some needlework or childcare related topics to blog on ......well maybe not

Well I have had a rather packed couple of weeks. I have been down to London 3 times since the 24th April, I think I may move down here it would certainly save time and money!

I came down to London last week to see the new Joe Penhall play Landscape With Weapon at the national Cottesloe theatre. The play was brilliant, well written and superbly acted. Tom Hollander's performance was flawless as was those of the supporting cast. Considering I went to an afternoon matinee it was very well attended. The audience even boasted a Hollywood star....Jack (Pirates of the Carribean) Davenport, who was there with his wife Michelle Gomez and his fellow This Lifer Andrew Lincoln.

The big news is that I was interviewed for and Channel 4 DVD. This meant that I spent a Saturday afternoon sitting in a comedy writers back garden somewhere in London, drinking beer and generally having a bit of a giggle whilst some very strange a silly filiming took place some of which included me! I'm not sure when the DVD will be out but it is going to be the new box set of Green Wing DVD's, which should include both series of the programme along with the Special that was aired in Jan this year. Although to tell the truth i'm a little anxious about this as I was properly rubbish....I don't think I have a carreer in TV beckoning

Also to those who are lurking out there, the quiz is still running as there are still a few answers to get do please have a go you never know you may just like it
