Hi everyone! Well it’s almost the end of my first week off over the summer (5 more to go!) and I’ve been a very busy bee. I decided a couple of weeks ago that the kitchen was in need of an update, so organised for a decorator to visit and give me some quotes.
That was last Friday, when I rushed home, after waving goodbye to colleagues for the next month, only to sit around waiting for two hours and finally realising she wasn’t going to turn up! Naturally, I was annoyed but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it was a CALL TO ACTION!
I was going to do it all myself…
We all know there’s a LOT of rubbish on screen these days, endless hours of dross that can slowly sap the viewer’s brain juices dry.
Unfortunately, if you can’t live without your Netflix and spend a large part of your week enjoying the gogglebox, chances are at some point in life someone has passed negative judgement on how you spend your free time. ‘They’, these harbingers of TV related doom, will tell all who listen that too much screen time will destroy brain cells, filling those left with useless drivel.
But is it truly useless? Can films and TV teach you anything of note?
