I just watched Who Do You Think You Are with Barbara Windsor tracing her family history. I suddenly want to find more out about my family! Most of her family came from the slums of East end London and I'm wondering if I have any ancestors from the same area.
I know that my Dad's Mum's family comes from London because my Nan had to move out into the countryside during the second world war when she was a little girl. But I think I remember my Nan saying that she came from South London (around Brixton area?).
Family history update:
I just spoke to my Dad and he said that his Dad's Dad (my great-grandad) was a groundsman at Chequers and worked for Winston Churchill! How exciting is that!
So, enough of family history.
You know when you read something that is so thought-provoking that you can't help thinking about it all the next day. Well, I read X volume 16 last night. Maaaaaaaan, did CLAMP write the most tragic love story ever or what? It was so sad! Seishirou and Subaru, part of me really wants them to have a happily ever after and another part of me thinks that they could of done so, if only Seishirou (and his mother) weren't such loonies. Now I really want a happy ending for them in Tsubasa, and it could happen, couldn't it? I don't see how a vampire and a vampire hunter couldn't get on just fine.
They have no chance.
I had to listen to Coldplay all day because I felt too emotional to listen to anything happy. ;___;
