Worse than most things is a single TV household on a night where the couple in residence both have shows the must watch and only a cheap digital TV thingy without the ability to record. For real. The last thing this couple had that could record is their VCR. We are this couple. We are a single TV household. Once we had a TV in our bedroom. But I got rid of it. For our relationships sake.

So now, instead we improve our relationship by sharing a couch and bickering over who’s turn it is to watch their show. There’s a side order of your show is crap as well. For those playing at home. A constant battle of I’ll trade you one episode of The Voice for half an hour of Swamp People. I’ll give you 2 hours of Pickers for the same time. It’s all fun and games until someone misses Team Joel & Team Keith on The Voice!

Negotiations, that’s marriage for you. Especially in a single TV household. Give a little, take a little, watch Swamp People and have your poor heart breeeeeak a little. I do the cooking, he does the dishes. He does the washing, I do the folding. Neither of us make the bed. It’s a constant pull and push of being smug marrieds.

But sharing is caring right?

    Clearly as a lot of your blogging involves you being interactive on social media. WHICH is what you do during such shows as The Voice and Offspring. You are technically live tweeting with and to your readers. THAT there should give your priority, or permission to have a little telly or get a tv adaptor thingy (GOD I’m awesome at tech telk) for the computer. Its totally vital. As a devoted reader I was thoroughly disappointed that your live tweets dropped off.

    Oh Natalie Dahl you hit the nail on the head there!!!! Tell hubby that if he doesnt let you watch the voice he will have all #thevoicegroupies to deal with, and we be fierce women! Or just let him read these comments and im sure he’ll understand what he is up against instantly hahahahaha. 🙂 xx

      Ha. Sounds like a plan, for sure! I didn’t realise we had a nickname… But I LIKE it. 😀

    We are a two TV family, but we only use two if the kids want to watch something different to us big people… So the Husband and I “discuss” who’s show we will watch or record…
    I usually win 😉
