Do you ever find yourself longing for some alone time? A bit of time away from work when you can just kick back and relax without worrying about dinners to cook, clothes to wash and without any little people scrapping on the floor over toys and books. Five minutes without having to shout “Please DO NOT snatch from your sister.” or “Will you PLEASE leave your brother alone.”
Well, guess what. I have not one but TWO nights alone coming up in the not so distant future…and even one potential lie-in.
So, what to do with this oh-so-rare moment of freedom?
Catch up with friends?
Hit the town with the girls?
Go watch a movie?
Nope. Not me. I am planning on spending the evening in the company of Piper and her fellow prison inmates whilst snuggled up in bed with my laptop. And I cannot wait.
I am even already planning the supplies I will need.
Seriously. I have become COMPLETELY addicted to Orange is The New Black and the opportunity to grab several uninterrupted hours viewing is just too good to miss. I kinda know that I will be in trouble with Mr B if I finish the series without him but. let’s face it, he tends to fall asleep before the end of most episodes so is already playing catch up.
And I guess he can always keep up on the i-pad whilst he is away too which we are discovering is really the beauty of Netflix more and more. The fact that we can both have our own profiles and log in via different devices simultaneously. Am beginning to wonder how we managed without it.
The danger of Netflix however, for me at least, is when there is an opportunity to watch A WHOLE SERIES in one sitting it is really hard to stop which has made for some very bleary eyed mornings at Casa B. It seemed like it would be ok to watch JUST ONE MORE at midnight. It didn’t seem quite so ok when the baby woke up at 4am.
And the toddler needed a wee at 4:30.
Such is the sheer lack of willpower I possess.
And here I am planning, nay PLOTTING, an entire nights viewing without him knowing that there will be no early morning wake up call. *Makes mental note to disconnect landline and put mobile on silent.*
I might not watch the WHOLE series though.
I am a bad wife.
I definitely won’t start the next season of Breaking Bad though.
Divorce proceedings would almost certainly ensue.
I think I have become a Netflix addict. Perhaps I should start a support group.
