I’m enchanted… with Downton Abbey


I’m enchanted. Or addicted. 
(however you you want to look at it)
To Downton Abbey!

Or, “Down Town Abbey” as I thought it was called, while I successfully ignored anything about it day, after day, after day…  Oh, I heard the talk on facebook. Caught the knowing whispers. I felt the excitement in the cyber-air as others talked about getting their latest fix. I thought; “When I have time, I’ll look into it”.

I only tried it once. 
It’s just like they said though…
I couldn’t stop.
I was hooked.
I needed my British drama. And I needed it bad.
One episode at 11 pm was all I was going to allow… just to see if I liked it.

But I needed just a taste more.
And then a big bite.
… next thing you know it’s 4:44 am and I had completed watching Series One. Up to Episode #6. I had binged. Uh-Oh.

I took every bit of self control I had to stop myself from watching episode #7, and the final show for season one, before stopping for the night. The only thing that saved me is that Jim would get up, and catch me still up, and my new secret addiction would be blown!

Why that mattered. I have no idea?
I’m positively enchanted though!

Turns out, I’m about as bad at having a Netflix series in my face as I am when I have a book. I can’t seem to put either down until I’m done.
(or it’s nearly 5 am – whichever comes first)

So. Are you a little DA junky too, 

or is their something else you’re addicted to?
Another juicy show… Trashy novels…
Do tell!

I found out after this post here, several of my readers are ninjas! I mentally tucked that info away in case I ever need your services. {winks}

Well… I should run.

I don’t have any new “house” stuff to post today, but I have lots in the works to share over the next several weeks. Including some giveaways that I know you will love! It’s been busy here at the hollow. There are new items, waiting for their new homes. Paint out.
 … and ideas spinning in my head.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

    Sounds like a good show! I’ll have to check it out. I just watched an older movie called “Gosford Park”. Was a really good British version of an American “Clue”. Witty and star-studded, I really enjoyed it. So now I am looking forward to starting a new obsession! Thanks for sharing!
