What do your TV viewing habits say about you?

I love watching TV.....I switch it on when I get up and it is on all day.....I mostly have it on for some background noise but there are a lot of shows I love to watch alone as well as shows we love to watch as a family....

At the moment I am of course loving the soaps, The Walking Dead, The WWE wrestling and I'm hooked on the Oscar Pistorius trial at the moment too....I managed to find an African news channel and I have seen every day so far live....It is so interesting.....Obviously he killed Reeva Steenkamp but they are trying to decide whether it was premeditated or just a tragic accident...I can't decide either way but it's got me well and truly hooked!!

Anyway.....

Have you ever wondered what your TV favourites say about you? TalkTalk has created a fun quiz to help you find out...They questioned families up and down the country to uncover what the nation enjoys most about telly, and see how the likes of catch up, the ability to pause, rewind and record live TV, and instantly watch on demand movies, sport and kids programmes have improved TV.

What was your result? My result was....


That sounds about right....

On a Saturday evening we do sit down as a family and watch tv....Usually You've been framed, Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway then The Voice which I've recorded.....The kids usually have a load of sweets or popcorn and Stu and I a couple of drinks....We make a night of it.....Saturday night is always our night for watching tv as a family.....If it's not Ant & Dec it's Britain's Got Talent, Doctor Who or The X-Factor which we can't wait to return....

When I was thinking about my favourite moments on tv I noticed that a lot have involved the Royal family in one way or another....They are moments that I am so glad that I have witnessed on tv....I've seen part of history happening!!

One of the first memories I have is of Prince Charles and Diana's wedding....I was only a few years old but can vaguely remember it....

Many years later I remember coming in very late from a night out and watching the devastating news about the death of Princess Diana....I watched it all unfold....How they speculated that Diana was just critically injured but it was not to be....Then came funeral.....Very emotional....Who can forget Elton John singing Candle in the wind.....

More recently it's all been about William and Kate there was the big royal wedding....They make such a lovely couple and her dress....Just beautiful!! Ellie wants one just like it when she gets married to a prince....Of course she knows she has to marry a prince to become a princess....While watching I had a million questions from Becky asking who everyone was....Google and Twitter came in very handy!! Then there was the whole waiting for the royal baby to arrive....Sky news was on most of the day.....lol

The Queen had a busy year in 2012 with the The Diamond Jubilee....We watched the concert from start to finish...What a show they put on.....

Who can forget Daniel Craig as James Bond escorting Her Majesty The Queen to the Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics....By the end of the Olympics the girls had stopped asking for their programmes on the TV and just went with it enjoying the Equestrian events, gymnastics, Usain Bolt and the diving....

It's true when they say you can remember where you were and what you were doing when certain events happened....Yes I remember...I was always with my family watching these special moments happen on the tv.....hehehe

This is my entry into the Talk Talk/Tots100 blogging challenge. More details of this challenge can be found on the Tots100 website.

  2. I have no idea what my viewing list would say about me?! I'm pretty addicted to Ice Road Truckers & Scrubs - but don't watch a lot of telly as a rule.
