Go-to activity = the telly

I had extra time today as I had cancellations at work. Twice I went to see one set of grandparents. The last meant I got to go home early, which meant I had more time this evening to spend with Dave.

With the heat, we’ve been having, doing anything can be a chore. Its been nearly two months with hardly any rain. Once I’ve done a shift at work I’m always in need of a shower to cool down.

I haven’t been wanting to do anything. The telly has been my go-to activity. I was good on my No Telly Tuesday. I did, however, read some of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the illustrated edition. I hope J.K.Rowling all the books like this.


Watched: Happy Death Day > 3.5 out of 5

Life, Writing

My First No Telly Tuesday

It has been the first since setting the goal the other day. I did well. I didn’t watch telly at home. I say at home because I’ve been working. Customers have wanted to watch the telly. This was an exception to the rule.

When I was at home, I spent some time with Dave before he went to work. We started a card game; a DC deck building game. We are trying out a new expansion pack. The first crisis one I believe. It’s been put to one side to finish hopefully tomorrow.

Still no news good or bad about the house. I do think he’s dragging it out to get a better deal elsewhere. I’m gonna ring the estate agents to see if they’ve contacted the vendor directly and see if they can get a real reason out of him.

I feel I’m getting my heart broken with this one.

Goals, Life, Writing

No Telly Tuesdays

One of my goals on my list is to have No Telly Days. Since starting with the goal, I have had no telly days, but I haven’t really got any steps to move towards this goal properly.

I feel instead of a cross-off-able goal, this should be an ongoing/for life goal to have as part of who I am. But I feel I need a bit more to it to have it be a more credible goal.

What I think will help is to select one day each week where I don’t watch telly. I’m drawn to a Tuesday, as I’m writing this. On my goal page, I am going to have a section of ongoing/life goals that I want to be intertwined with my values.

No Telly Tuesdays is going to be one of them.

Seeing as I’m a community care worker, I can’t tell a customer to turn the telly off if that’s what they want to do. As it is them watching the telly and picking the shows etc, I’m going to have an exception to the rule.

No Telly Tuesdays – doesn’t count if I’m in a customer home.

I’ve told Dave about my decision. He felt a little happier about it when I replied to his question that he is allowed to watch telly on a Tuesday if he wishes. I’ll either be not at home or I’ll be in another room.

I’m not going to force him to stop something just cause I am. As of today No Telly Tuesday is gonna come into effect.

Do you have days without watching telly?
