Yes, I enjoyed your list and agree that the constant reminders are an insult to what little intelligence I have left. I read a lot at night but watch a reasonable amount of tv (I fit the stereotype - on benefits watching the box, though I usually have something to do eg knitting - grief but I sound even more sad now) and what drives me really insane is when the ad break is as long as the short piece of programme that I saw. I’m most annoyed that they do this on SKY which I pay an arm and a leg to watch!
Michelle I love Call the Midwife too. I trained as a midwife in South Africa in some of the really poor clinics in the middle of nowhere and even though it was the beginning of the nineties the old and outdated equipment and methods were much the same. I remember grating soap and washing funnels to give enemas prior to delivery.
