Just Like Buses!!!

Since Downton Abbey finished there hasn't been anything much I wanted to watch on a Sunday evening and then last night along came two programmes one after the other and I spend two hours sitting on my aspidistra watching tv.
Loved the first episode of The Durrells.......those kids though....what a bunch.........and Home Fires is back at last.
DD has just ordered the first series on dvd and as she is on holiday next week I think a duvet day and a binge watch will be in order.

Thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday.
Jackie.......Marlowe definitely takes after

I am feeling much better this morning as I got a really good night's sleep for a change. It's a good job as you should see the pile of laundry I have to tackle. I don't know where it all comes from.
Tea today.......I haven't the foggiest idea but we have plenty in the freezer and I think we have salad in the fridge. There are always part baked rolls or baguettes in the cupboard so we won't starve.
While the laundry is swishing around I think I will run up the other two cushion covers which will reduce the pile in the corner by two cushion pads and two pieces of fabric. Not sure what I will start on once they are done. I might finish the quilts if I feel like tackling them although one is a Christmas quilt and I may not feel like doing that one.
Laundry sorting and a coffee first though before I get the sewing machine out.
Have a lovely day and thanks for dropping by.



  1. I watched The Durrells too. I was looking forward to it and it didn't disappoint. Glad you're feeling a bit better today. My washing machine is also busy. It's a rare day when it doesn't get used. X

  2. We really enjoyed the Durrells, too. Lots of laughs and the house they moved into was me and hubs' idea of heaven - a bit ramshackle, no electricity and just full of character. Love Keely Hawes. Have to say, though, I thought The Night Manager was simply amazing. Gorgeous scenery, fantastically edge of the seat stuff, Tom Hiddleston was great but Hugh Lawrie was amazing and Tom Hollander is one of my very fav actors.

  3. We enjoyed the Durrels too and taped the Home Front as we went to bed. For some reason both of us were tired and it certainly did us both a bit of good, we both feel better this morning. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

  4. We loved both programmes! Though I wish Home Front had done a quick recap as I tried to remember who was with who etc!
    Perfect Sunday evening viewing for a long time to come!

  5. Yes Rachel.....a quick recap would have been great.
    Many Sunday nights with feet up, homemade cake and a cuppa. You can't beat that-x-

  6. And I missed it all! Never mind, when this darn cottage is finished I'll have oodles of time for to. (Maybe) x


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
