The Up Series

I am obsessed with this documentary!

If you have never heard of it, it involves 14 people in the UK, followed throughout their lives from 7, and then every 7 years thereafter.

I am on 28 Up right now, and it is fascinating to see how people's lives have changed from their ambitions and attitudes at 7, then their awkward teenage phase at 14. The 21 year olds were adorable and still so innocent. It really makes one think about their life, and how much things can change in only 7 years.

My issue is time. It is so hard to steal away for a few minutes to watch a show. I end up watching at night when I should be cleaning or cooking or reading. And I get so obsessed that I watch in bed with headphones until the wee hours of the night, then wake exhausted.

Looking forward to next week - not working! 5 days off! (And don't worry, I'll be taking M to daycare so I'll have plenty of time to myself.)
