I am having rl this week; it is rubbish. (Or at least, it was hot and now there is a Thing I have to go to tomorrow; everything will be at least better once the Thing is over and I have recovered, or more or less; it's a multi-part Thing, as so often in life. Stupid Thing.)

And then just now I happened to look and Network are having a 45% sale again!. And guess who still has nearly all her b'day money? Oh, yes, I do. Now I just have to decide what to spend it on, so at least that will be some sort of an antidote.

If you are in R2 or can play R2 discs, you too can snag yourself obscure old British telly! (Mostly ITV, it tends to be other companies that release the BBC stuff.) I have been poking through to see what's on offer from my wishlist (lots! \o/) and can tell you that you can also get Press Gang, Enemy at the Door, Public Eye and Sapphire and Steel at bargainous prices! (Also Manhunt, The Power Game, The Sandbaggers and Mr Palfrey and Undermind and Zodiac). So you should go out and buy them and then write me all the fic, obv.

Anyway, I thought I'd give the heads up and enable my like-minded souls on my flist. ([personal profile] liadtbunny, I am shocked that you did not already tell me this! I rely on you for these things! ;-D)

I probably shouldn't. I still haven't got around to watching half the things I bought in the last one.

Yes indeedy!

(I am wallowing in the bliss of somewhat cooler temps - it got up to 32.6C in my room yesterday and Tues. Today (rn) it's a mere 25.6 - which feels practically cool in comparison!)

(Oh yeah - saw the knee guy again yesterday about my MRI scan - he's referring me to the Pain Clinic to see if they can help me manage my pain since an operation is definitely not an option.)

Well the external temp is way down because of the chilly wind outside - it's just a case of waiting for the temp in my room to drop - all the heat that gets trapped under the very efficient roof insulation has yet to dissipate properly. Once it does, I'll be in clover!

Thank you.

BTW, should've said before (I'm distracted by beta-reading shiny new novel for my author friend, but that's NO excuse), I hope the Thing goes well.

Indeed it does!

Then I shall wish it into real immateriality!

Dammit! Sapphire & Steel at bargainous prices would make me extremely happy, but this machine is not region-free and I am not convinced that I could make it so without breaking it; it never has been, which is why I have only watched my DVDs of Black Books at someone else's house. Region codes are bogus.

I hope the Thing goes as well as it can.

Oh, nice! Good you have that to cheer you up at least :) I hope both the heat and the evil, wretched Thing will go away very soon. ♥

Thanks! I snagged a lot of lovely ones in that style from this batch: http://m-in-wonderland.livejournal.com/26558.html

Network also sell The Bill DVDs. I now own all of the ones I sell. Let's not discuss how few of the episodes I've watched on the ones I've got.

Oops, sorry:S I thought as I have mentioned it often in the past everyone who was interested would have signed up for emails by now (while non-UK old TV lovers throw bricks in envy).

Sorry there's a Thing and humid weather, hopefully Nework's new layout will distract you.

Edit: The sale finishes tomorrow (Friday) if you haven't decided what to choose yet.

I didn't know you had email trouble, I'll remember to pimp the next sale. I don't want to be punished by the master matrix computer turning my internet off again! Network (like last year) have extended their sale until the 30th if there's anything you've regretted not ordering.

I don't like the layout either. I haven't been on the site for ages and I was like why have they made it look like a cheap, free layout design and then the penny dropped, damn mobiles:/ I've got a smartphone and I don't like mobile layouts on it and ebay thinks I'm in America on mobile!

I hope the Thing went well and you're feeling better. *gentle hugs*

I refuse to buy more DVDs until I've watched what I've got. *looks anyway*

OK, which Public Eyes should I buy first? I'll probably get just a couple to begin with and see how I go on with them.

Meanwhile I hope it's cooled down over there and you're more comfortable... send us some of your sun! Here in Australia it's pretty cold. Strange but true.

OK I have ordered Series 4 and 5... fingers crossed!

I hope the rainy weather is more comfortable for you! The sun has gone missing en route between the UK and Aus. I am well rugged up as a consequence!
