My kids can't get enough of these. . .

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. The kids enjoyed this one so much we then watched them all. They were giggling and requesting repeat viewings. It was wonderful all around. Plus, I remember laughing at real cats with tape on their paws. . . does that make me a terrible person?

A new love

If you've known me even for a little while you probably know of my appreciation (some might call it an obsession) with BBC Drama. While I would never (ever) want to live during the time periods of the past I love to hear the stories. I like modern stories too, but there is something about the manners and restraint of the characters in these shows that I am just drawn to. And there aren't many things on T.V. that you can watch with with your family and not be worried about violence, language, and sex. 

My sister, Lindsay suggested this series to me. I am really enjoying it. I had to wait a few weeks before my turn came up at the library. I am now watching season 2 and will be waiting 20 more people for season 3. At least my library has a waiting list I can add my name to. I am still waiting on the book . 

So, if you enjoy a good BBC drama once in a while you may want to check it out. 
"But don't take my word for it.... ba dum bum."

And if you like this than you may want to take a gander at this.

What are your favorites?
