@Machka9 'Last tutorial of the semester -- and was informed there is no tutorial today. I got up early and walked there for nothing.' That's annoying! I'm sure you had issues you wanted to discuss.

On the subject of television, and entertainment genres in general - does anyone else think that original shows/movies/books/genres have become the exception, rather than the norm? I mean, as opposed to sequels, and prequels and remakes of older movies/stories? It seems that, once a story gets some popularity, the entertainment community just keeps doing the same thing, over and over, beating it to death. As a writer finds out, there is the old mythology that there are only seven stories or plots, or six if you like, but new characters and situations seem in short supply today. Or perhaps I'm just older now and I've seen more.

The tv programmes that punctuate my day are real 'daytime tv' stuff. I love them. They are my comfort blanket. I adore 'Homes Under the Hammer', Bargain Hunt, 'The Repair Shop' and Flog It. For a few weeks we had 'Best House in Town' . I was totally addicted. I write my books in the morning with the tv burbling away very low just to keep my writer's block at bay. The afternoon ones DH and I watch together as a wind down. The lunch one we eat to and talk about together. It's all very bonding for us.So I get very cross when holidays mess up the schedules!
I'm not madly keen on new drama, though I am watching 'Gentleman Jack' as I like the director, a woman. I usually watch all the repeats of the detective series. Vera, Midsomer Murders, etc. Mostly I watch documentaries, especially medical - 24 hours in A&E, Ambulance, Hospital. History docs. Art and architecture. DH likes intellectual quiz programmes, Mastermind, University Challenge. I rarely watch new drama series as I don't like violence or nasty people. I like inspiring stories. Or a really good comedy. We like Not Going Out, or Would I Lie To You. Have I Got News For You. All funny.
Our early mornings are spent listening to the radio while we exercise. Radio 4 BBC. First it's the Today news programme, which we both shout at, and then each day there's an informative or entertaining hour or so. The Life Scientific, Desert Island Discs, Start The Week (books), In Our Time (history) . We really enjoy our radio and learn a lot. It's a real education.

I just wish they would have let me know. I would have worked longer last night and got up at my normal time to straight into work. It made for a long day ... 10 hours from the time I left home till the time I came home.
Didn't help that it was quite chilly all day and although I dressed a bit warmer, I wasn't entirely prepared.
I'm in pyjamas with a blanket on me ... and about to dive into my project.
