Come Dine With… Battle Mum
Every Friday I’ll be posting another dinner guest wish list in my guest series, Come Dine With…
This series asks all sorts of bloggers who their dream dinner guests are, and why. As you’ll find out there is quite an eclectic mix! This weeks dinner guest wish list is from Cath. You can find Cath’s blog over at Battle Mum.
If you are a blogger and would like to take part in Come Dine With…. please contact me here.
So without further ado, let’s Come Dine With… Battle Mum
The first person I’d like to have dinner with is Sean Connery. I am a massive James Bond fan, and although I do love Danial Craig as 007, Sean is my favourite. Perhaps it’s the Scottish accent, I don’t know, but I do love him. I’ve seen him in other films but for me he will always be James Bond. I also once sat about ten feet away from Sean Connery in The Boxwood restaurant in London but didn’t want to disturb him as he was having dinner with his family. So, this would be my chance to say hi and have a chat.
The second person I’d love to have dinner with would be Princess Diana. Although I am Irish, I had a big fondness for Princess Diana and I truly believe it was her influence and charisma, especially with the public, that started bringing the Royal Family into the 20th and 21st centuries. I remember very well where I was and what I was doing the morning the terrible news came through that she had been killed in Paris.
The third person I’d want to share a meal with would be Alexander Skarsgård. I first came across Alexander as Eric the Vampire in True Blood and my love affair with him began. Tall, blonde and very handsome, I thoroughly enjoyed True Blood and the character of Eric. What’s not to like about him?
The next person I’d like to have dinner with would be Steve McQueen. I watched The Great Escape over and over again when I was younger and had a serious crush on him in that film as a result in my teenage years.
I’d also love to have dinner with Madonna. I’ve been a huge Madonna fan since I was very young and managed to see her twice in concert, once in Cardiff and once in London. I’ve always loved her music and admire the fact she can change her music to suit the times. I know she can come across as aloof and big-headed, but you have to admit she’s become one hell of an artist and a successful one at that.
And last but not least, a dinner date with famous people would not be completed without natures greatest advocate, Sir David Attenborough. We absolutely love all programmes which are narrated by this iconic legend. He has a voice that entrances you and a passion for the natural world that is easily conveyed to us, the viewers. We’ve started watching Blue Planet and Planet Earth with our son and he is enjoying them a lot.
