I don't know about you, but these days, once I get in from work, have some dinner and pootle about for a bit, then all I do for the rest of the evening is watch the tele.
I feel that the day is broken up into 'chores' and having been at work for 9 hours my chores are done.
I am not an energetic person.
I am very accomplished at sitting on my backside in a comfy chair in the sitting room with certain objects close to hand that enable me to have a relaxing lovely evening......laptop, cup of tea (or glass of wine), remote control, newspaper, crochet bag, and a view of the Mister across the room who is invariably also on a laptop/ipad...it is the way of the world nowadays.....and suits us just fine...thanks for asking...oh and there is also usually a cat somewhere in the picture moving from here to there to see which of us will give the most fuss to it.
Not for us the going out in the week business that young people get up to - crikey.......Mon to Fri is just for 'head down/go to work/get it done' and then enjoy the weekend.
Last night I decided that eating a snickers bar (a whole one...I Know!) and watching the tele
was the order of the day.
Which is pretty much the way forward for me most days really.
Nurse Kim Wilde returned - Jo Brand in Getting on. Such a funny programme.
This opening episode to Series 3 featured an elderly lady, who is a regular visitor to the hospital, who Nurse Wilde quite rightly decided had nothing wrong with her and needed a Psyche evaluation (an americanism there I think?), who has grey hair, and panic attacks, and is perhaps a hypochondriac.
The writers have clearly met my mum.
