I was supposed to have a guest blogger but they seem to have vanished into the ether. So today, I thought it'd be interesting to present a snapshot of telly time! I might be the only one, but I always find adverts from around the world really interesting. It's like a sneak pick into a different culture.
So please bear with me while I snap on the telly and wait for the next commercial break. Oh, while I'm waiting, I'll announce the winners of Catherine Ryan Howard's Self-Printed.
Hard copy goes to... India Drummond! Whee!
Ebook goes to... Janice Horton!
Another ebook copy goes to... Lani Wendt Young!
Right, here we go with the adverts (yes, this is what my blog has come to today).
Jonathon Ross hosts Penn and Teller: Fool Us! I admit I did like Jonathan Ross until he got together with Russel Brand and started behaving like a five-year-old. Think I'll take a miss on this one.
Butlins Happy Days. I'm not quite sure how to explain the concept of a holiday camp. It's a uniquely British thing where loads of parents bring their kids and eat fried food in the rain. Butlins has a chain of holiday camps and I can't help but snigger at the name!
DFS Sofa Half-Price Sale. Ever since I moved to the UK seven years ago, DFS has been having half-price sales. It's a wonder they're still in business.
Homebase. This is a DIY store that I'm quite fond of after they gave me and Mr TR a water-heater timer for free when they couldn't find the price. Score!
Evian, the official water of Wimbledon. I reckon Wimbledon doesn't need any more water this week after all the rain!
There you have it. Welcome to my advert world! Have a great weekend, everyone.
