We’re living in a borrowed flat now. The owner has a TV, so after seven TV-less years we are now sharing a room with a TV set again. (Technically we did have a TV before we moved to England 7 years ago, although we really didn’t use it much.)

Apparently seven years is long enough to totally kill off the habit of watching TV. I haven’t turned it on even once during the past month. Eric has used it for watching DVDs (instead of watching them on the computer), but I don’t think even he has turned it on to watch an actual TV programme.

I have to admit it’s nice to be able to sit in the sofa while watching a movie, instead of a chair in front of the computer. Not nice enough to warrant buying a whole TV, though. I don’t think we’ll be buying one when we finally find a house.
