What Ever Happened To The Likely Lads..
"Oooh what happened to you? Ooohh whatever happened to me? What became of the people we used to be?"
Remember these chaps? It wasn't an overly rip roaring funny show but it is great to watch if you're just looking for a 1970's period piece. I love watching shows like this to see the clothes, the furniture, glass milk bottles, teapots and pub life and the like.
You can see from the opening credits the North East was hardly glamorous (nor was the South let me tell you!) and for many the 70's were bleak but it was a much more simpler way of life. It has a charm and nostalgic feel to it don't you think? Or if you were born post 1985 you'll probably thinking what are you on woman?!
Onto normal chit chat matters which normally take place on a Saturday but today feels like one. Well I haven't been stuffing myself with chocolate following on from my what's it all about post. I have been slacking with the writing of my food diary with the kids being off and all so will try to get that sorted out. Exercise wise nothing structured like my Wii dance and The Biggest Loser - I have just about managed to shake this cold off and buddy cried it out again last night for nearly 2 hours with occasional visits from me and the hubster - so mighty tired today. I'm going to crack the sleep if it kills me which it probably will do.
I am planning on doing a jog with my step-daughter today I have informed St John's ambulance and they are on stand by.
I am currently waiting for the "cable guy, oh cable guy" - remember that film with Jim Carey? He plays the psychotic cable guy who wants to be Matthew Broderick's best friend. This is his second visit and when I see the Sky man my head is saying "oh Cable Guy" - does that make me nuts? The Sky man isn't quite as intense and I don't think he's going to give me free cable (and I'm not about to do anyting untoward to get it!) but he needs to change our dish as Cbeebies in the kids playroom keeps playing up. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't go out but I do have SKY with all the trimmings and multiview - its one of my luxury items and it needs to be working. Give me that people. Give me that.
