About 10 years ago, myself and my eldest were all alone here for weeks as everyone else was in the Middle East doing the boots on the ground thing.

I’ve spent so many birthdays alone and my boy knew this. So that late November morning I woke up to a HUGE box on the kitchen table.

The boy had gone through my Amazon Wishlist and bought me my wishes. One of which was the entire box set of all Lovejoy episodes.

I cried.

It’s taken this long for anyone else in the house to actually sit down and watch this much loved programme of mine.

This morning I was treated to three whole episodes on the Drama Channel without a single side comment. Yay. Progress.

Not including the episode below, though. Which “stars” the man who played Cliff Barnes in Dallas. OMG. I’m THAT old ?
