Oh what an end to Our Girl ( I always type My Girl, greedy eh?) She's not mine she's our's well until she got under the covers with James, woah steamy stuff, definitely Jame's Girl now. It was a sensational finish to the series I thought and what an ending. Oh I hope they all make that jump, probably be a big splash but hey thanks to Special Forces for nipping off on their hols and leaving them with their boats hundreds of feet below a big cliff. They weren't to know I suppose but it certainly made a very entertaining and tense finale. Can't wait for it to return again.
I'm a bit obsessed with Eat Well For Less, it's just fabulous to see lives turned around just by the food they buy. If you haven't seen it Gregg Wallace and Chris Bavin get hold of a family (not literally) and seek out their shopping habits and tot up their budget. We at home firstly gasp at how much these people spend then congratulate them when they cut their weekly shopping budget down by quite a considerable amount. There are families buying zillion bottles of cola to takeaway meals most nights and the savings are unbelievable.
I noticed a difference when I started doing my bulk shop at Aldi as it's just amazing how much the prices vary. It's also surprising how much rubbish we chuck in our trolley's, things we really don't need. I hate throwing food out so I take a lot of tips from this on how to buy well and it is so much healthier to cook nutritional meals from scratch. Yes convenience meals are quick and easy but it really doesn't take much effort to cook a nice meal. A slow cooker is the best thing for having a cheap healthy meal ready at the end of the day......wouldn't be without mine. Love this programme, good educational, tip grabbing telly..
I've had a pretty free weekend this weekend. I did have lots of plans to get some paperwork done, some other writing projects but guess what I did in the end? Well I procrastinated in a big way but I binge watched a load of Sex And The City. Now I've seen the whole lot of this over and over before so it's not as if I haven't seen it and I'm not sure what made me start. Oh that's it I caught a re run of one episode on tv and thought it may be good to watch some more. So I have totally wasted this weekend with four girls from New York and their dating antics.
I kept asking myself, are you happy though Sue from the Brew? and I can honestly say I was. It's been a long time since I've just relaxed and not done anything. A while since I had time to chill by myself so I think I will catch up with the other stuff this week but hurray to a bit of relaxation. The thing is I almost feel guilty for it, but why? Stuff it.......I'm not gonna feel bad. It rained anyway so my gardening wasn't happening and that's my excuse as if I need one.
This week we see the last in the series of Poldark and a new drama starting on Tuesday called Age Before Beauty which looks good. I will also be reviewing Nadiya's Family Favourites next week which is fabulous. If you've not seen it it's on Monday BBC2 8pm. Very funny and be prepared for very tasty recipes.
So my conclusion this week is that binge watching box sets does have a lot to answer for but sometimes you just have to do it, recharge the old body batteries ready for more mayhem that life brings us. Thank you so much for reading today. Please pop back tomorrow fro Music Monday but for now..........
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
