I never watched the first series of Downton Abbey. I caught glimpses of it, and intended to catch up with it at some point, but I never managed it. When the new series started last month, I decided to watch it. It is really my type of program.
It is on at an inconvenient time for me, so I have recorded it. I watched the first episode in the week after it was transmitted, and I LOVED IT. It is great. Super. I thoroughly enjoyed that first episode, and could happily have sat for twice as long watching it. I have recorded the next two episodes, but I haven’t watched them yet. I suspect I will not get round to watching them.
The problem is that there are so many things I love doing. And there are so many things I don’t love doing, but should be doing. And there are many more things that (and these are the best) that I both love AND should be doing. Watching Downton Abbey, or any other program, might not make it to the top of my must do list today or any other day, and my life is richer rather than poorer for it.
Well done to everyone involved in its production, and thank you, but I have a million and one other things to do, and I’m happy about that.
