Let’s have a meme

It has been ages since we had a meme. Let’s do this one – it has a knitterly aspect, after all 😉

Meme snagged from K425

Empire Magazine has revealed its list of the 50 Greatest TV Shows ever:
1. Bold the shows you watch/used to watch.
2. Italic the shows you’ve seen at least one episode of.
3. Post your answers.

50. Quantum Leap
49. Prison Break
48. Veronica Mars
47. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – my excuse being that men in my life have been slightly trekkie, otherwise it would have passed me by
46. Sex & The City
45. Farscape
44. Cracker – wanted to see some of this but never got around to it

41. Band of Brothers
40. Life on Mars
39. Monty Python’s Flying Circus

04. The West Wing – courtesy of hooloovoo_42
03. The Sopranos
02. Buffy the Vampire Slayer – can’t recall why, maybe on between two things we actively watched.
01. The Simpsons

So, what show do you do your knitting in front of?

I confess to missing the TV since I took up knitting again. It was always when I got my knitting done. I find it hard to believe that I multi-tasked to the extent of reading a book on my lap, while knitting, and keeping half an eye on the goggle box, and another half on the kids and the dinner 🙂

I am sure I’d get through more knitting if we had a TV set. Not that it’s a reason to get one… but I would. I’d knit more. For certain.

Hot, hot, hot

I really am a poor blogger these days, aren’t I? Sorry. The notion that I would keep a Nature Diary here soon fell by the wayside. A pity, that. Perhaps I will try again next year, The thing is, we packed ourselves up and wandered off in the van again and when we came back we were, for various reasons, at a low ebb. Energy has been lacking and especially the mental variety. I amContinue readingHot, hot, hot



Having chosen to live in France, I try hard to live French. I really do not want to be that Brit – the one that moans how they can’t get such-and such in France or that some-other from the UK is better… Certainly, in my humble Brit opinion, there is so much here that is better than back in Blighty. Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…
