Wellness Wednesday: Out with the old, in with the new



we decided not to go on holiday this year - my lack of mobility just makes it too complicated - plus the weather's been awful in england this summer!
so, while the kids were at grandpa's for the last week of the hols, nick and i decided to surprise them :o)
our old TV died over a year ago, and a friend kindly lent one of his (top pic) - we're one of these strange families who only have one TV - imagine that!! - which worked just fine... but the kids kept saying it was too small and the digibox kept cutting in and out, so we decided it was time to enter the 21st century in TV technology!
the new telly is 32" - still not that big - it is high definition and digital - so no external digibox needed - and it's gorgeous to watch!! football matches look awesome - even when england are playing! playing a movie on the new DVD player looks like a mini cinema! the regular TV programmes aren't cut at the top and the bottom - since it's widescreen, they fill the whole screen...
so we have two happy kids - most of the time! - and all is well in the sauer household :o)

We recently got a similar TV, and I must admit that it was easy to get used to. I love watching animal programs in high definition... so beautiful.
