"...Oh that box. Amy, (He's talking to me, I swear, LOL!!) you'll dream about that box. It'll never leave you. Big and little at the same time. Brand new and ancient and the bluest blue ever..."

Did I dream about that amazing blue box? You bet! LOL. I even crocheted a lovely one for a dear friend for Christmas. (pattern pending...it is hiding around here somewhere!) :D How glad am I that the Doctor is back? Well, it inspired a new design, so that should say quite a bit!!
