One of my tick boxes on the move front was a good internet streaming speed..
I never had TV before and the last 6 months has been awful after having one installed . There isn't any aerial coverage to speak of and it's pretty much the 5 channels and radio. Can't wait to kick the tv into touch again .
I refuse to watch reality tv and soaps just aren't my thing, although as said before I do seem to find Judge Rinder a bit addictive
I have no mobile phone coverage either which can be a hassle . The new system at new house will be used for calls as well so landline will be of no use either .
I am a reader which I think helps so having no TV isn't much of a problem.
I might just treat myself to a nice shiny iMac depending on the fencing budget

Did the Hawes - Ingleton road today, slowly. What a great road - apart from the very steep turn in Hawes onto the road itself, which was scary.
Went to meet a couple of friends for lunch, both in their 70s, both apparently typical grandmas. One was very interested in my bike. And she said, over lunch, 'I used to have a Sunbeam, great heavy 500cc thing it was. Used to ride it from Cambridge to Scotland'. I love that, you'd never guess to look at her that she was roaring about the country on a Sunbeam in her 20s.
