The Good Old TV Times!

Led on your belly with head on hands, in front of a faux wooden box on top an oak cabinet, eyes as wide as saucers glued awaiting the evening’s entertainment! Four channels is all we had and even so we’d only watch two of them.

Being the youngest, the family hierarchy dictates that you be the remote control. Dad would direct you to the channel to switch as you stodgily walk on knees to the big brown box. After a while you’d try and tempt fate by switching channels whilst dad was sleeping only to hear a muffled but firm “I was watching that”! Then you’d rush back to your spot on the sofa trying whole heartedly to blame your older sister only to get the evil eye off both off them.

Sure we were telly addicts but who wasn’t?

Straight home from school the big brown box would be glowing with luminescent joy and we’d watch, Thundercats, Masters of the Universe, Inspector Gadget, Danger Mouse, Bugs Bunny on Rolf’s Cartoon Club, Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and just before bedtime Only Fools and Horses and Cheers.

The theme music to Poirot and Lovejoy still send shivers down my spine and give me that queasy “I have school tomorrow” feeling and have most likely forgotten any homework I had and do I have P.E?

On the bright side here’s a few T.V. themes to get you through the day so you don’t have to think about school and hey we’re grownups now and we never have to go to school ever again 🙂

Guest Blog Post: TruffleShuffle Sundays

We all need duvet days once in a while, and in my house these tend to happen on a Sunday.  Sometimes, I just love to snuggle down, watch a DVD and just generally relax. However, I still like to inject a little Truffle Shuffle style into my comfort zone, so let me share my favourite products for a Truffle Shuffle Sunday.

I have a little girl, and we start our Sundays with her favourite breakfast – egg and soldiers. A classic, right? My girl loves to eat with this amazing Gruffalo breakfast set.

The Gruffalo Breakfast Set

My daughter just loves eating with The Gruffalo!

The Gruffalo is one of her favourite books, and so it’s a great way to start the day. It also includes a little mug, which is perfect for a nice warm drink.
