When I was an ’orrible teenager glued to the gogglebox, my dad would warn me ‘too much watching television and you’ll become square-eyed’.
Well with wide-screen TV I must be on the way to becoming oblong-eyed.
I was in full couch potato mode last weekend watching the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The divine double D dumplings bristled with pride to see our Queen stand for hours, waving endlessly – and she’s 86. Fantabuloso.
I did escape for a few hours on Sunday. I was invited to the Cadnum Road street party in Eastney.
Call me old-fashioned dear, but I love to see neighbours get together enjoying themselves.
It reminded me of a bygone age of nipping next door to ‘borrow’ a cup of sugar.
Not the done thing in the new-builds.
