why I no longer do the occasional non-plotting posts about nature and wildlife TV programmes it’s because I haven’t had a working television since the analogue signal was switched off last April . I used to watch very little so rather than buy a new set then I thought that I’d wait a few months and see if I could do without one.
I’ve not missed it at all and just have watched a few must see programmes on BBC iPlayer. The money that I’ve saving no longer paying for the TV licence or buying the Radio Times will go towards a new PC when this clunky old one needs replacing.
The weather has remained very cold and the forecast for midday tomorrow is heavy snow with a wind chill factor going to make the -2 C temperature feel like -8 C. With that in mind I decided to walk to the library and supermarket this morning. I timed my visit to the former perfectly because as I arrived a member of staff was about to put a couple of books out on the New Books stand. I borrowed both as they were on my must read list and one, Robert Ryan’s Dead Man’s Land, I’m really looking forward to reading as I’ve enjoyed all his previous books. Hopefully this, and some other books that I’ve read recently, I’ll mention and review over on Sofa flying which I took off the shelf again last week.
Have a good weekend!
