Time for a Confession

I need an intervention.

I’ve watched so many British TV shows that I called somebody a wanker (under my breath) and actually started to get in my car on the OTHER side.

Sometimes I use the word “whilst” and stop myself from adding a “u” to color, honor, favorite. I actually think they look better with the addition, but that’s a personal issue.

I think it all started years ago with Absolutely Fabulous and all the British baking shows, Downton of course, Broadchurch, Vera, Scott & Bailey, Call the Midwife, Endeavour, Sherlock, The Crown, Unforgotten, Grantchester, now All Creatures Great and Small…soooo many!

Honestly, I don’t watch a lot of American TV unless it’s reruns of The Nanny or Bewitched or Emergency and it’s turned me into a bloody fool, but I should stop whinging. I’m cheeky like that. No worries, it’s all brill.

My DIL thinks I’m so funny because she likes to watch American shows and I don’t think they are nearly as well acted or written. Oh, we love to watch trashy Dynasty, but that’s a one off for me.

One of my favorite sayings is “needs must”. I reckon those two words speak volumes.

Cheers! Off you go then.

  1. You have me giggling. I love Call the Midwife and All Creatures Great and Small. I wish Anne of Green Gables was on. You should have Brit Box if you don’t – don’t ask me what it is, but it’s lots of British TV. (I’ve seen a few clips on YouTube). I’m a big fan of PBS and have been my entire life. But I know what you mean about a letter u wanting to slip into some words and a British swear popping out every now and then. I love that you watch Emergency. Growing up I had the BIGGEST crush on Kevin Tighe. And when I was older I had a crush on Randolph Mantooth – swoon!

    • It really IS funny. DIL thinks it’s funny too. She was the one who first showed me AbFab and I bought every single season. I know about Britbox, lol, DIL asked me if I wanted it. I SO love Emergency but you can really see how smoggy it was in LA back then. I crushed hard on both of those guys too and it seems as if they are just as nice and authentic in real life as they were on the show and that’s so heartwarming! There isn’t another word in American that works as good as “whilst” so I plan to keep using it!

Now it's your turn to share your pearls with me. Cheers!
