I must admit that I'm watching very little television at the moment, which is no bad thing but when I do there are certain programmes that I have been really enjoying of late.
Gardener's World - BBC2 Friday 9.30 pm - I love this programme, it is always a favourite. I am secretly quite happy about it's new later time slot, as I'm often not back from Zumba until 7.30pm on Fridays. I love getting a weekly reminder of all the things that I can and should be doing in the garden. Whoever decided to air it on a Friday night was a genius, as it sets the tone perfectly for the weekend.
The Great British Bake Off - BBC2 Wednesdays 8pm - I couldn't miss this one off the list. I enjoy sitting and watching this with Little Bird, whose favourite contestant this year is Martha. I don't have a favourite, I must admit, I just enjoy the show.
Hotel India - Wednesdays 8pm (Can't remember the channel) - I had to record this programme in order to watch it, on account of it clashing with the programme above. It has been well worth it where I have remembered. Although this series has now finished, I did managed to catch a couple of episodes and loved it. It took a look inside the infamous Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, a favourite haunt when in India, of many famous and influential people. I was fascinated by the insights it gave into this amazing establishment and this beautiful country. I have a very lucky friend who is going to be staying at this hotel later this year, courtesy of the company her husband works for. I'm very envious, but in a nice way.
Strictly Come Dancing - Okay, it's not back on our screens just yet, but coming very soon. I love watching this programme and get really excited around this time of year. I know, I'm incredibly sad. It's just such a pity to hear of so many relationships breaking up after celebrities have taken part.
Don't tell anyone, but I'm a also a secret fan of Come Dine With Me on a Sunday afternoon/evening. Not sure which channel, but there are usually several back to back. It's an entertaining accompaniment to the huge pile of ironing I usually have to do.
I asked OH the other day if we could subscribe to Netflix this winter. I fancy getting my teeth in to the US series Orange is the New Black, which I've heard rave reviews about. We loved watching Breaking Bad last winter when the nights turned dark. I got a lot more quilting done too whilst watching it. I don't seem to be picking it up at all at the moment. I'll let you know how I get on if we ever do subscribe.
