Everybody Needs Good Neighbours

I'm feeling rather uninspired at the moment. It could be something to with the lurgy that has struck down myself and my baby, forcing me to spend most of the last week on a settee with a sleeping baby on my lap, staring at the TV.

So, the title of this post is about neighbours. We actually have great neighbours. Not the type to pop round and have a coffee with, but the type you could borrow a ladder from if you were short of one.

Anyway, I was not intending to write about real neighbours. I sat down to write about Neighbours, the only soap worth watching (on weekdays on Channel 5 at 5.30, at least). Any Aussies reading this will probably think it's hilarious that some of us sad Brits still watch this guff. And yes, I have visited the real Ramsay Street.

Anyway, Bridget is breastfeeding her new baby (they seem to be giving bottles too, but hey, I don't really expect continuity from a Neighbours scriptwriter). And they even mentioned her leaking. It's so nice to see breastfeeding mentioned as a normal, run-of-the-mill thing in a soap. It gave me a little smile when I watched it yesterday.

Yes, I thought it hilarious when I moved to England and found everyone watching this very sad, sad show. LMAO
6 months later, I found myself watching, just for the nostalgia of what was then still 'home'.

I've been uninspired lately, too :) Maybe it's a blog-bug going around hehe.

PS: I have no idea what Ramsey St. Neighbors is!

leaking breasts in a sitcom...lol...wonderfu reality bit there :-)

I had an uninspired spell a few weeks ago...I'm not sure what was going on, but I seem to have gotten through it alright :-)

I find that most babies born in soap are bottle fed which is a shame.
I haven't watched Neighbours for a long time. My only daytime TV watching consists of children's TV or Deal or No Deal, how sad!
