Not Watching It….

February 2, 2014

As a follow on to the excitement of Not Buying It, January was also my designated month for Not Watching It.


I went for a whole month watching no TV (with the exception of a couple of episodes of Fireman Sam…).

My grand idea was that if I wasn’t watching TV, then I would be reading, and ‘improving myself’ and ‘learning things’. And getting to bed earlier.
I did none of those things.
I had about 2, maybe 3, evenings sat on the sofa reading.
And the rest of the time, I filled the void with….the internet :(
I just seemed to swap one screen for another, and instead of sitting snuggled up on the sofa with lovely hubby staring at a screen together, I spent the evenings sat in the study starting at a computer screen.
Not great.

AND I missed Sherlock. And the celebrity version of Bake Off. And I am sure lots of other stuff.
None of which is life changing, but I think I would have enjoyed them (never fear, we did record them!)

So I am back on with TV.
BUT I have learned that I need to be more organised, and more focussed.
If I have stuff to do on the computer, I need to do this first, and then ‘dick about on Twitter’ if there is time after all the *important things* are done.

Now there is a resolution…. 😉
