I’m currently living in a half empty flat with no TV. It’s really rather lovely actually, you don’t realise how much television is depended on for entertainment when’s there’s so much more going on in life. Conversation and literature for example. Oh and there’s something really cosy about sitting in bed, radio on quietly in the background, cup of Horlicks on the bedside table and getting very annoyed indeed with the book of logic puzzles. I’ve also bought a book which is the main reason for writing today as I heartily recommend it. Monty Don’s My Roots is rather wonderful. It’s bite sized chunks of gardening thoughts and stories and makes me wish I could write like him. He really is rather good. Beats Titchmarch any day.
So I’m rather enjoying my TV free week. But I know what I’m like and as soon as I move I’ll be back watching the box, especially as it’s Sky+. Hmmm. How does that Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy song go again?
