There's nothing on the telly tonight, except for the Eurovision Songcontest, and I stopped watching that event sometime in the early eighties, I think. It's such a waste of license payers' money; and if I did watch it, it'd be a waste of two or three valuable hours of my life, too.

Dad will be moved into the nursing home on Monday. Mum took him for an inspection of the place last Thursday, at the end of which he gave it a cautious thumbs-up. Let's hope that once he's moved, he'll settle into the routine of the home quickly enough, because there won't be any going back to the kind of semi-independent way of life he's led in the care home. I don't think at present he realises how big a change this is going to be, and I just hope he won't have any regrets later on.

I wasted much of the week then I watched the semis too.

Sorry! I should have made it clearer: even though I may think it's a waste of time and money, that doesn't mean other people shouldn't enjoy it.

Oh, I'm not offended. It's a complete waste of time, but I kind of like it anyway (except all the UK songs, they've all been awful).

Hoping that your dad settles well and is happy in his new home
