Really You Challenge

I am taking part in this challenge from A Guy called Bloke

How much Television [alternatively, films through the PC/DVD’s or Streamed TV] do you watch per week, month or year?

I’m not sure I can put an accurate number to this question.  I watch television/Netflix almost every evening but for how long varies.  I seldom watch during the day.  At the moment though, I am staying with my kids and the TV is on all day long whether or not anybody is watching.  The volume is only turned up when someone is watching.  Averaging things out I would say two and a half to three hours per day.


How do you keep yourself entertained?

I have no problem keeping myself entertained.  There is always something to do.   I don’t follow a strict routine now that I am retired but I do try to do all the necessary household and gardening chores early in the day.

I admit it.  I spend a lot of time on my computer.  My journal is always needing updating, I edit my photographs – I never leave home without my camera so there is a lot of editing that needs to be done – and of course, I Blog.

How do you prevent yourself from becoming bored and do you suffer from boredom a lot?

When we were still looking after the family, bored did not have a place in my vocabulary.  I am still not bored.  Life is fun and exciting and there is always something to do even if it is only a Sudoku or Crossword puzzle. I am lucky enough to travel frequently and when we are at home base we explore our local area by taking spur of the moment days out.

I am making the most of the South African Lifestyle and hope with my blog to share some of the adventures my husband and I are having in our retirement. We live at the Southern Tip of Africa in the small coastal town of Struisbaai. Earl and I have a Gecko off-road caravan and we travel around South Africa frequently. We are bird and wild life enthusiasts so are often in game reserves.

  1. I love this, cause so much the same. I am seldom bored, and often when I have been it’s because I’ve been left in a dr’s waiting room, or waiting for the kids to get out of practice, or some situation like that — when I’ve caught up on my phone and have been dumb enough to think I wouldn’t need a book.

  2. Before the Covid, our TV broke and we didn’t replace it until last week. We didn’t miss it that much except for the news. We want to be up to date mostly but you’re right, we should find other “occupations”! 🙂
