  • Wednesday

    I watched the first part of a Lewis episode where Hathaway is on holiday leaving Lewis on his own. Only a couple of victims so far so I’ll probably watch the second part this evening. Predictably, I fell asleep watching YouTube. The wind blew through the night so there was a slight reluctance on everyone’s…

  • Tuesday

    I didn’t have a lot of time so watched the episode of Porridge where some purloined pills fall into Fletcher’s mug of tea. Then it was a complicated but interesting YouTube tutorial about graph creating and pivot tables in Google sheets. I went early to bed. There was no wind when I went outside to…

  • Monday

    Heartbeat was my main viewing choice as there was little time before bedtime due to arrivals and catching up with the admin. The storylines were amusing as Greengrass abducted a gelding to service two mares. A little boy at the school was having difficulties concentrating and his father was disappointed because he was not able…

  • Shirtsleeves

    We walked a different route in an attempt to prevent Skinny, Sasha and Isabella from visiting the wild camper. It was earlier too, the sky was clear but it was amazingly warm. Not summer warm but, for the time of the year, quite remarkable. We seem to be having June weather in April! I took…

  • Lucky Find

    With no Internet access, I watched recorded programmes on my hard disk. The first was another triumph for Perry Mason and his team solving a complicated murder. The second was Lieutenant Bosch fighting to keep a man he’s sure committed an offence in jail. The night was warm as was the morning with a warm,…

  • Internet – Again

    The night was a little windy as was the morning. I decided on a hoodie with even a wooly hat underneath although I left the hoodie behind on the second walk. Two motorhomes were parked along the beach track, one from Austria, the other from France. The Austrian one looked very posh. We passed them…

  • Punctures

    A group of French arrived around 20:00 from Elafonissi. They phoned from reception to ask if the camping was open so I quickly showed them to a place by the beach where they could erect their two tents and left them to it as Hercule was waiting as was my supper. Hercule kept me amused…

  • Woden

    I tried Season one, episode one of Trigger Point and it was ok. There were a few twists and turns and the ending was unexpected. I grazed YouTube and actually managed to go to bed before falling asleep. An afternoon nap helps. I had a checkout to attend to at 07:00 so the alarm was…

  • Still Windy

    The main theme of Judge John Deed was that of consent and the ethics of saving lives against the will of the consented. A fifteen-year-old boy with a fatal heart condition was refusing a transplant as he did not wish to spend the rest of his life taking drugs which were tested on animals. There…

  • Very Windy

    Contrary to expectations, it wasn’t very windy but certainly a lot cooler as I was wearing a hoodie and a hat. We walked the usual route and afterwards I took Skinny and the girls. Isabella brought only one ball but the one she brought was falling apart. Even more so after she pulled it to…

  • Hottest Day

    I didn’t realise I’d not posted yesterday’s blog until right now. I was tired so hardly surprising I was losing the will. I watched a video about the various weapons used in the Russia-Ukraine war. It seemed they are all designed to kill as many people as possible one way or another. From a purely…

  • Tired

    I watched the first episode of Vera who was dealing with a serial murderer so it was all quite complicated. I fell asleep watching a YouTube video so went to bed. Maya and Isabella chose to be outside and Sasha joined them later so it was fairly quiet until Skinny decided he’d like to go…

  • Visitor

    The evening was short so I only had time for Spooks and a little YouTube before bedtime. I got up before the alarm and readied the dogs, all of which were inside for a change. I still had to go out to put on my boots and pick up my walking accessories but made them…

  • Thursday

    It was later, so my televiewing consisted of a visit to Yorkshire with Heartbeat. A doctor, who’d accidentally given the wrong medicine to a young girl causing her death, had come to Aidensfield under an assumed name. The dead girl’s father hired a private detective to put the frighteners on the doctor and eventually abduct…

  • Wednesday

    Fletcher and his cronies were trying to spice up Christmas with a little festive cheer in this Christmas Special from Slade Prison. He found himself in the governor’s office with Godber then became embroiled in a hostage situation as one of the other inmates tried to escape. Fletcher came out smelling of roses as it…

  • The second episode of Hidden Assets was as watchable as the first with the relationship between the Belgian anti-terrorist squad and the British police investigative team deepening. There may also be something between the two individuals. The next choice was The World’s Most Epic Railway Construction Projects which has included so far, Tren Maya, Australia’s…

  • Hottest Day

    Hetty was investigating the disappearance of the mayor’s daughter, a simple girl who went off with one of her admirers, an equally simple man who worked as a municipal hygiene operative. They went off in search of a resort hotel but wound up in an old farmhouse. As usual, Hetty did her research and deduction…

  • Spring Forward

    Dangerfield was as busy as ever although he seemed to spend little time in his practice and was having a difficult time with his son too. The main theme was a woman who alleged having been raped but would not allow the police doctor to examine her. Doubtless, all will be revealed in the next…

  • Restful Saturday

    A gripping episode of Line of Duty ended in a knife-edge situation. It would seem that the powers of darkness have their tentacles at all levels and are determined to cover every aspect of their misdeeds. I watched intellectual stuff on YouTube but fell asleep. I woke at three and went for a wander with…

  • Martin Shaw, as Judge John Deed, had to ditch one of his former lovers, Lady Rochester, when he discovers she’s deep into a massive fraud which he’s been too gullible to detect. The main theme is three siblings who are accused of murdering or attempting to murder their parents. They’re all pretty unpleasant especially the…

  • Stupidly Warm

    A bank robbery was the main theme of Endeavour. Thursday received a gunshot wound during a previous episode and some of the bullet remained in his lung. His cough gradually got worse and he finally admitted the doctor had given him three weeks to live. Morse and Thursday’s daughter found themselves participating in the bank…

  • Hottest Day

    I watched the second episode of This Is Going To Hurt but gave up before the end which I’m advised is a shame as it’s worth continuing with. I’ll give it another go. I saw the final episode of season three of Unforgotten when they finally get their man who eventually gives up other information…

  • Tuesday

    The evening was spent on iPlayer watching Hidden Assets which shows potential. Following that was This Is Going To Hurt, a hospital comedy set in a maternity ward with a young doctor. It also shows potential. Lastly, a load of shorts on YouTube and then bed. I went for a wander around three and woke…

  • Independence Day

    I watched Frost who was supposed to be going on holiday. The combination of a car accident which debilitated some senior police officers and the abduction and murder of two young boys meant he was needed. It was only nearer the end that I remembered who the perpetrator was. I watched interesting videos on YouTube…

  • Zondag

    The second part of a multiple murder in Oxford provided my evening entertainment. The culprit was eventually apprehended only after attempting to stab DI Hathaway in the neck with a lethal injection. Fortunately, he was wearing a neck collar following a recent rear-end shunt. I messed around on YouTube until bedtime. The night seemed a…

  • Σάββατο

    My evening entertainment was provided by the operatives of MI5 as they thwarted a potential assassination whilst intercepting some deadly nerve gas intended to cause chaos in Nigeria. Some longer YouTube videos followed of a less intensive nature after the excitement of Spooks. With only a week until the clocks go forward and the lovely…

  • Battery Problems

    Martin Shaw was the baddie and David Suchet his friend and downfall. To be honest, I’d didn’t really find Shaw convincing as Sir Charles, the famous actor. I fell asleep after Poirot and woke up in time to go to bed. Luis and Oskar had a disagreement about something so I told them to shut…

  • jeudi

    The first episode of the second series of Vigil was exciting but I’m not going to binge and consume mindfully. I watched some YouTube before retiring to my boudoir and, as a result, I ordered a replacement for my ailing Apple Watch. This should arrive in the fullness of time via ACS, my go-to carrier.…

  • Mittwoch

    Auntie Hetty was investigating why finalists in a singing contest were being systematically knocked out of the running before even the final began. She was delighted to present a Poirot-style exposé by having the suspects in the same room to disclose the culprit. All good, harmless Yorkshire fun. I checked the weather before leaving my…

  • Wreckage

    The GraceChurch detectives were investigating the cause of death of a young woman who’d ‘fallen’ from the college roof to discover she’d been stabbed before being shoved to her death. There were several candidates with a motive however it was through clever deduction the true culprit was apprehended. I was well ahead of the alarm…

  • Kathara Deftera

    Luther finally managed to catch the serial murder and his accomplice. Additionally polishing off some others including Alice who is now finally and terminally dead. It’s the end of the series so resurrection is not on the cards. Luther has many difficult questions yet to answer as his methods are anything but conventional and there…
