When I go into a care home to provide reminiscence shows or sessions….. it is often the case that the TV has to be turned off !! When it is a programme about decorating the house or such like….. I don’t feel too bad ! But when it is Wimbledon I feel very aware that turning it off in the middle of a set point just might be REALLY annoying ! So it was with care that I did so today – and when one lady asked if she could carry on watching – I asked if there were other televisions – yes – in her room – well – that’s ok – would she like to go back to her room to carry on watching – yes – I will ask the carer to help………. I did…….. because if that was me and the programme was – um – ‘Mad Men’ or ‘ The Apprentice’ ….. I think I would be a tad annoyed !! We are after all – individuals – one persons Wimbledon is another persons ‘Alan Sugar’ and another persons…… ?
Wimbledon lover or not?
