Things I have enjoyed this week

Here’s some things that I enjoyed this week.


The Detectorists (BBC4): This comedy is about two friends who share a passion for metal detecting, but it’s also about so much more. Lighthearted, funny, touching and very watchable.

Stranger Things (Netflix): Everyone in our house loved the first series. The sequel has so far met our rather heightened expectations.

Losing my Virginity by Richard Branson: I really enjoyed this. It covers the first forty years or so of Mr Branson’s life, including the founding of Virgin, the sale of Virgin Music to EMI and his famous record breaking adventures. The audiobook is narrated by the author.
