HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

My hubby & I got engaged on Valentine's Day many moons ago so it's always been quite a special day for us. And he has already had his card so I haven't missed him out!! Last year this day was special to me for a different reason - it was our second day spent on the set of 'The Oxford Murders' in Harrow. Can't believe it's been one whole year since that wonderful time!! I can see him now - you know of whom I speak - sitting engrossed in his crossword, belting up and down those steps, whistling as he went - hugging Alex - chatting and laughing with the crew - standing there illuminated by a sunbeam as he spoke his lines. So near - and yet so far.

If anyone would like to read my original post about that time, here's the link:

Awwww! Thank you, and belated Happy Valentine's Day to you too! :-)

Yes, I've been feeling incredibly nostalgic over the past couple of days, too *sigh* That Speech Room was such a wonderful setting! I had to laugh a bit though, when one movie reviewer (American, I think) said that the movie really epitomised the way people think of Oxford University, such as old-looking, hazy lecture theatres. I very much doubt that any of the lecture theatre scenes were actually filmed in Oxford (Harrow's in London of course), and I wonder what they'd say if they knew that the haze was caused by cooking oil!! ;-D

Oh god yes, Valentine's Day last year will always be special to me too!! I never thought I'd spend that day with Elijah... well, close to Elijah... ;-) And I got a Valentine's hug from him, what more could I want?? :)

I love that you and your hubby got engaged on Valentine's Day! I hope you celebrated! :)

I had no idea you had met Elijah so many time and had the incredible chance de be in Oxford Murders ! (If I understood your post correctly....lol).
Anyway your tale of this wonderful day made me remember of the day I met Elijah and Alex de la Iglesia last January (I think you read it on Elijah Finds)and made me feel so nostalgic... It was one of the best day of my life. Your tale was so moving, thank you for sharing it with us !

I hope you're allright and I can't wait to see you back for the following of Frodo's Journey ! :)
Thank you again for everything !

Just catching up with some posts which I missed while I was away:)

Yes, I have been incredibly lucky to meet Elijah so many times. The very first time was at Collectormania here in the UK in Oct 2003 - that was a crazy time, so many thousands of fans were there!! He and Dom & Sean were there for 3 days. The next time was at ORC in California in Jan 05, that's where my icon pic was taken - best photo op ever because we could sit down next to him:) Then I saw him at ELF in Orlando, Florida at the end of August 2005. The next time was in London at the London Film & Comicon - 1st and 2nd July 2006. I was also hoping to see him at Orc in New York and Ringcon, Germany that same year but sadly he cancelled. Then, of course, it was Feb 2007 when my hubbie & I had that unforgettable experience on the OM set for two days. Such wonderful memories:) I know I'm greedy, but I just hope there are more to come!! And yes, I well remember reading your report of meeting Elijah and Alex, I was so very happy for you. I really hope that, for you also, there will be many other opportunities:)

I am slowly getting back to normal now and have even managed to do a bit of work on 'Journey' so I hope to post the next chapter before too long:)
