A New Find.

Just by chance I happened upon a new to me podcast from the UK, The Knitter Next Door. I have only watched the first one so far but have had the SO set up a small TV (found hiding, all forlorn and forgotten, in a cupboard) with the Amazon Firestick from Fran's room (only a borrow, it will go back when she is here) in my sewing room. I now plan on a binge watch while I am pin basting, and generally pottering around. The SO will be free to watch all his favourite rubbish  programs about building rat rods (?) extreme buildings (!) and Zombie/horror movies (!?) without me sighing, huffing and puffing. I don't do it that much as I switch my ears off and look at what I am doing, or read.

I just hope that I don't end up staring at the screen, motionless. 

I started this post yesterday only to suddenly lose the cursor, lots of looking up stuff via phone and tablet. Lots of puttering and tutting and not a few choice staccato words.

This morning I have borrowed a plug in mouse and all is now working. I am not going to try anything else but will be off to pick up a new one later.

I was not well pleased with the Strictly results last night, but who am I to judge, I haven't graced the dance floor for many years.

Anybody remember the Court School Ballroom Dancing in Leamington Spa?

I will leave you all till the morrow while I go in search of a mouse.

  1. I can't get my head around how these stick things that you plug into the TV work. Could you explain it to me in very simple technophobe
    Enjoy your podcasts.

  2. Have been over and looked at 'The knitter next door' will be watching that, thanks.

  3. It's great being able to indulge in programs and hobbies via a tv. We have Chromecast and I love it.

  4. I gave up using a wireless mouse...too many times losing the batteries in the midst of something necessary. I use the corded one till it expires and then replace it.
    In my house the errant spouse watches some sports, alien discovery shows, science shows and once in a while the redemption of a dead house into something spectacular. I tend to watch the news, binge watch starz and netflix. Waiting patienting for series 4 of Outlander to drop.

  5. That pod cast sounds interesting.

    God bless.

  6. Hope you found your mouse! 😀
