Lazy Days & TV!

Hi everyone,I am taking a few days off,well I say that but I will be scheduling some posts so that will keep me busy in preparation for my kiddies coming home.Although I have enjoyed the break I am missing them like mad so I will be so happy when they are home.

So what I thought I would leave you with this weekend is my favorite TV shows,I have been asked a few times what soaps I watch so I thought I'd share.I will do this every once in a while like I do with the music and share the different shows I am watching.

For those of you that are not in the UK I will add a few clips of the soaps so you can check them out.




Eastenders, 


EastEnders is a British soap opera; the first broadcast was in the United Kingdom on BBC 1 on 19 February 1985. EastEnders storylines examine the domestic and professional lives of the people who live and work in the fictional London Borough of Walford in the East End of London. The series primarily centres on the residents of Albert Square.

This is my favorite out of all the soaps on most nights of the week.



Hollyoaks 



Hollyoaks is a British soap opera, first broadcast on  23 October 1995
The programme is set in a fictional suburb of Chester called Hollyoaks, and features a large cast of characters primarily aged between 16 and 35. Another of my favorites and it is on every week night.

I will save some more till the next time.

  1. I don't watch soaps, but then again, here in the US I think all but 2 or 3 have either been canceled or moved to show on the internet only.

  3. It has been a long time since I have watched soaps. I used to spend a lot of time with my favorite shows. I think the internet has taken my time away from TV.

  4. Enjoy the time before the kids get home! (Glad they'll be home soon.)

    We don't have very many soaps now (so many have been canceled in the past couple of years!) I'm patiently waiting for September when all of my television shows begin again!

  13. I'm one of those that are guilty of DVR'ing a daytime soap. I started watching it during bed rest with one of my pregnancies and got hooked. I don't watch it daily but I try to catch up ever so often.

  14. With a lot of family and friends on the other side of the world I think I watch a lot more British shows than I do American sometimes.

  17. I don't think I've ever seen a "soap opera". But I think some of the night shows I like (like Grey's Anatomy) are close enough LOL

  28. I haven't watched soaps since the early 90's I think. My mom is super addicted as much as my SIL I think. I don't think these ones are in the US though but they sound like something they would both watch.

  29. I'm going to look these shows up. My favorite soaps are off the air. All My Children and One Life To Live. I think they are on hulu now but they have changed so many of the characters but its just not the same.

  32. I miss my old soaps, I remember when my oldest was an infant and I became a stay at home mom, I used to shut my brain off during nap time and watch all my children, now I cant find the time during the day anymore so I watch the Brazilian soaps late at night.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Most of our soaps are gone now. I don't really watch them anymore. Yours looks interesting though.

  39. I know EastEnders is super popular in the UK. I am more of a TOWIE kind of girl (that's how I know of EastEnders b/c of Mark Wright's fiance!) Reality trash TV is my guilty pleasure.
