Haven't really got that much more to say about them to be honest - other than who actually watches this stuff - other than those who've just had major spinal surgery and can't reach the remote of course. I'm sure I have ranted about daytime tv before and to be honest the makeover and relocation programmes get to me too. But today I was struck by just how much food is prepared, cooked, analysed and consumed throughout the average tv schedule. Maybe this is what has spoilt my appetite? I'd an email from a friend today who reliably informed me my pain is not caused by the surgery but by daytime tv and chick-lit. He may have a point but what are the options? I do have a couple of boxed sets but I am incapable of viewing them through a playstation (sorry - I am a dinosaur). Before you suggest it - this netbook has no drive and no software to view dvds. I so have a Macbook but I am not allowed to lift it (for the same reasons I am not allowed to lift the kettle with more than one cup of water in it - very green but not very sociable...)
I could read more intelligent books. Well, in theory I could, but I have tried and miserably failed, I finished a book today - woo hoo! In fact I will recommend it to anyone looking for an easy read for the tube - "Foursome" by Jane Fallon. I became aware of her when I was attracted to (and purchased) her first novel "Getting Rid of Matthew" which had nothing at all to do with how I was feeling about my boss at the time ;-)
I have another book to try and get into tomorrow, but Ian is off so we may do something exciting like walk round the block, wander to the post office, go for a coffee or even a pub lunch! The options open up enormously when you have an arm to lean on...
I've strayed from chopped veg, daytime tv and even the pain I am in. It's almost time for lights out as Ian was up at 5 for an early shift today. That means a long night - perhaps I will try to get into that book now...
As ever thanks for all the emails - and the cards too. I admit to having a "grabber" so I can pick up the post before Ian gets home now - always lovely to see some cards amidst the bills and junk mail - can't believe they are still coming to be honest, thought you would all have forgotten me by now ;-)
