... when you're constantly on the move, few things remain unchanged.

my current craze | BBC

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

right now my obsession isn't a material object at all: right now, with work being out of control busy and me feeling utterly exhausted every night, I can't get enough BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) programs!  I've gone through show after show in the evenings on Netflix, snug under a blanket, glass of wine in hand; starting with my all-time-favourite Keeping Up Appearances, then The Vicar of Dibley, Ripper Street, Merlin, Sherlock Holmes and now Monarch of the Glen!  A.D.D.I.C.T.E.D.

British programs somehow make me feel like I'm home and I'm not sure why.  Growing up in Australia, we mainly watched Aussie shows, very rarely anything by the BBC - although I suppose they were often on in the background.  Now that the majority of my life is being spent at work, time differences matter a whole lot more and that means I'm communicating with friends and fam a whole lot less :(  I feel their loss during the days but once I'm settled down before the TV, it feels like the distance between us no longer exists!  They could be just up the street once more, laughing along.

It's funny, my American husband basically hates BBC programs.  He thinks English humour is lame and I can't count the number of times I've had to pause the screen for laughing so hard, while he's sat starring blankly at me! LOL.  Lucky football season has started so he has something else to preoccupy himself with while I'm immersed in the comfort of the familiar most evenings!


  1. Hi Lena ... we Brits have a distinct sense of humour that's for sure ... subtle too .. but boy can we laugh ..and those are a good selection of golden old viewings! Cheers Hilary
