Monday was spent scrolling through “Forest Fr1ends” ‘ Twitter feed and laughing uncontrollably, as the scenes got funnier and darker. It is amazing what you can do with a couple of poseable dolls, and whoever dreams up these images / captions deserves an award of some description.
As I watched last week’s Antiques Roadshow while this week’s was broadcasting, I got to watch last night’s episode tonight, which was a real bonus. I love a bit of Antiques Roadshow, although I’m not really sure why.  I guess it is a bit of a tradition as Summer fades and becomes Autumn, and the pace of the show is relaxed and unhurried. The theme tune hasn’t changed, as far as I can tell, and I still think of the Adam and Joe pastiche every time every week. I think it’s a bit like Ski Sunday, in that a lot of the time people weren’t watching it for the skiing, they wanted to see the spectacular crashes. And part of the attraction of Antiques Roadshow is watching people’s reaction to the valuation of their goods. Sometimes things which have been in the family for generations turn out to be crappy fakes and worthless, and sometimes a carboot sale bargain turns out to be worth thousands. It is interesting as well to appraise the style of the goods, and decide whether you like the minimalist glassware or the ornate china. TW and I tend to disagree on styles some of the time, so it makes for interesting viewing. I had a couple of cans of Kronenbourg while watching telly, there’s nothing like a four-pack to start the week right, and by the time those had been sunk, and the telly was warming down, it was time for bed.
