I think the tv just broke…..

….was the first thing I heard when coming down the stairs from putting Elisabeth to bed. She had gone to bed quite easily, which she hadn’t all week, so I was pretty chuffed and looking forward to a having a beer and watching some tv. But there was my husband looking as if someone had just told him that the world was going to end soon, with the remote tightly gripped in his hand, staring at the black screen. “It just went bang” was all he managed to say before starting to switch it on and off and on and off, in the hope this would magically fix it. It didn’t.

The tv has now been taken to the tv doctor and the living room looks strangely empty and light. It actually looks quite nice and it is certainly lovely and quiet. I feel a bit sorry for my husband though, he is not a reader and with his very busy and physical job he really enjoys just sitting down the evening and being entertained without having to think about anything.

I, on the other hand, don’t really mind. I read a lot, so not having a tv for a bit just means I read a bit more than normal. It is strange though not having a tv, it’s a bit like when there is a power cut and you keep forgetting and thinking of stuff to do which needs electricity, or is that just me and my awful memory?

Anyway, I hope our poor tv gets better soon, but in the mean time…..what shall I read next?

  1. I lived without a TV for many years, and didn’t miss it at all. I found that I did more interesting things, including lots of reading! Even now I’ve got one, I don’t really watch it much at all. It’s mostly for the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I wish we didn’t have a TV. I love a good movie here and there but I’d rather play board games or cards or read together. But my hubby is on his feet most of the day so he too enjoys plopping on the couch at night – I hope your TV comes back from the doctor soon… for your hubbys sake ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I smiled as I read this…because since our move last Wednesday we’ve been without t.v., phone and for the first few days internet till I discovered somehow I was getting an internet connection from somewhere only on my wireless laptop…not my husband’s pc…..We still don’t have the phone or tv ….oh well there’s always more unpacking still to do…Diane

    1. Ah, the move has happened ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope all went well. If I’m honest I would probably rather be without tv then internet, perhaps I shouldn’t have said that, that will probably the next thing that breaks now……
