My Addiction…

I have a secret to admit…

 

I’m a box-set addict…Not the worst addiction in the world, I agree, but an addiction all the same

 

Now, I am not the most up-to-date on box-sets, oh no.  I have only just found (& finished) the amazing (& gorgeous!) Luther.  I am only currently half way through series 3 of Breaking Bad (OMG how did I miss this when it was on tv?!?!).  I have only seen the first series of 24, even though I have the next couple on DVD waiting to be viewed…

 

But I am an addict.  Every night, as soon as my boys have settled in bed, the hubby & I sit down on the sofa…breathe & relax…& turn on the next episode of our latest must-watch!  No discussion, no hesitation, just straight on; picking up where we left off the night before!  Sometimes even forgetting to go via the fridge for that well-needed, well-deserved glass of wine that I was promising myself an hour earlier (when dealing with two fractous nearly 3 year olds!).  Once my bum is in position on the sofa & the box-set is playing, there’s no moving me!

 

Over the past few months alone we have been horrified & enchanted by the history of  The Tudors, sat on the edge of our seats thoughout the first & second series of Homeland (not so keen on series 3), lapped up the excesses of Rome, & are both gripped with excitement & have cleared our diaries for 17 February when our pre-ordered Blu-ray of Game of Thrones season 3 will land on our doormat!

 

I’m lucky that my husband shares my obsession – infact he may be worse than me, he even signed up to Netflix just so that we could watch Orange Is The New Black…

 

So if you bump into me on 18 February & my eyes look bleary & red, it is not because I’m ill or have had a bad night with my children; it is because we have tried to watch the whole Game of Thrones Blu-ray in one go…!!!
