New Year, new Cha-Cha-Cha


Cheers!

Happy New Hangover, peeps!

We hosted a marvellous party to usher in 2018, (hopefully) blasted the upstairs neighbours into submission until the wee small hours, and, having had a good lie-in (thank heavens for earplugs as the Demon Spawn were crashing around early again), we're having a hearty breakfast of gin...

Start as you mean to go on, I say.

Speaking of which - it may be New Year's Day, but it also happens to be a Tacky Music Monday. It's also mambo maestro Xavier Cugat's birthday, so what better to wake us up than with a faboo Latin medley featuring his sassy ex-wife Abbe Lane..?


A good note on which to enter 2018, methinks!

  2. The Cha Cha Cha never looked like that picture on Strictly, rather disappointingly. Perhaps you're right in your scorn and derision?

    * wonders if Gorka the Corker will strike a pose like that in this year's Strictly *

    * yes - it's only eight-and-a-half months away! *

    3. From the Independent: "The strained efforts of Mark Ramprakash or Gabby Logan cannot compare with the Terpsichorean genius of the Peggy Spencer Latin Formation Team." Indeed. Jx

  3. Fab video but I was expecting her to say ' You call me tacky drag, I kill you', at any moment.
