So there’s this conversation about Christmas presents with my Mum.
Mum Do you know that Call the Midwife?
Mum Have you seen it?
Me Now and again.
I’m sorry, I cannot be doing with Call The Midwife. I know a lot of people love it so I am probably wrong but it does my head in. It’s like Downton Abbey with mucus. A monkey, a typewriter and as many stereotypes as you can fit into a brown paper bag and you are away.
A mad nun
A serene nun
A salt of the earth slightly sweary nun
A good looking young doctor
A tart with a heart midwife
A beautiful midwife with a dark secret/ broken heart or both. (Don’t worry – she will love again)
A slightly dowdy midwife/nun who will come into her own later.
Miranda Hart who gets to fall off her bike a lot.
And Sunday night TV is your oyster.
Mum Well, I got the DVD you for Christmas. Series 2
Me Er Ok.
Mum You’ll love it
Me Do you like it?
Mum Never watched it. Don’t think I would like it.
I am thinking bad thoughts. I am a bad person.
