Busy doing nothing

I've never taken it so easy.  And, I'm getting used to it! I'm finding a fair few good things to watch on TV too.  I love the Sunday Midwife program, the chairs at the clinic remind me of my baby clinic at the Miners Welfare Hall in my youth!   Monty Don in France on a Friday night is simply stunning - I need to visit the Hermes roof top garden in Paris.  The David Attenborough Africa series has been amazing as to be expected, and I fell completely in love with him when he was "talking" to the little blind Rhino this week.  I'm hoping the new series Nashville is going to be as good as it looks too.


I've also been planning on decorating my living room too.  The room is looking more shabby than chic, and my new lamp from Achica.com (a very dangerous website!) looks way too grand on my Grandad's sideboard at the moment!

I love that sort of 'eclectic' look

I agree with John, it looks lovely as it is.

I find that being busy doing nothing takes up so much more time than being busy doing something!!! The time just gallops by. Keep warm t'other Diane

I've been enjoying both those television programmes, Diane, especially the Monty Don French Gardens one. I'm looking forward to the one on the south of France and the chance to get some virtual sunshine! Hope the rest is doing you good and the new lamp is lovely.

It sounds like you're taking it easy :D And on KET, which is like a public access channel here in the States, they've been playing that Africa series with David Attenborough. They play alot of old British TV and sitcoms from the 1970s, 1980s and now. I'm beginning to re-like Are You Being Served? I used to watch it when I was younger.

Just don't get entangled in daytime TV like This Morning and Loose Women, Diane - that way madness lies...
Enjoy taking it easy, don't worry about decorating. The lamp is great and looks just fine on your grandad's sideboard! xxxx

I have been enjoying the Africa program too - just what I need to remind myself I am an ant in a vast universe of wondrous things! I like your shabby chic - lamp is pretty too.

Lisa said...

The only programme out of those I have seen is Call the Midwife which is makes such a good Sunday night viewing.

I'm saving the Monty Don garden programme, bound to get all inspired and need to be outside doing things once I watch. We have snow again today so I'll be doing not much too.

Oh I love it when us bloggers start sprucing up rooms - so much unspiration! Hubby has just refitted our wardrobes and then we will sort the bedroom out. Can't wait to buy stuff and yes that website IS dangerous! lol Dunelm Mill had a sale too - wow! I was like a child in a sweetshop - infact so much to choose from I came home with just a duvet cover! lol! (Mind you I bought some curtains on-line! lol!
