7 Of The Best British TV Series To Binge Watch

I am the perfect example of a binge watcher. I barely ever watch anything on terrestrial TV, and when I do it is usually on catch up to avoid all of those pesky adverts.

The Typing Nook…

I’ve sat in my usual spot for the past few night thinking what I should write as my first blog post of 2016.

Curled up the left hand nook of our big, brown leather sofa poised to type at an angle that although comfortable to me, won’t do anything for my back in my later years I’m sure.
