TV To Wind Down To

My line of work sees me trudge homeward late at night or in the early hours of the morning. When I arrive home, I perform a ritual that those of you who work, or have worked similar late shifts might be familiar with: No matter how late it is, or how busy I've been, I cannot go straight to bed - I must unwind for about half an hour, usually with a cup of (decaf) tea and a couple of biscuits. As I chill out, I like to watch something light-hearted as my body and mind wind down for sleep. Years ago The Odd Couple filled this role (I have some on DVD), and creaking black and white episodes of Hancock's Half Hour have set me up for slumber many a time. But lately my favourite late-night entertainment has been Seinfeld. I used to watch it years ago, and so I picked up a couple of box sets on DVD from a charity shop. The antics of Jerry, George, Elaine and, of course, Kramer are the perfect prelude to slipping into the arms of Morpheus (although that irritating slapping bass sometimes wakes me up again). These shows do not have to be rip-roaringly funny; rather they gently wash over me like warm water. How do you unwind before bed?

As we're retired we rarely need to wind down. If we wound down any more we'd be comatose! However, my son is a bass musician and he always needs to unwind when he comes home from a gig.

Pretty much the same way. Strange, that. ;)

I usually read or watch some TV. Right now I'm watching a movie and having a Mike's Hard. Totally relaxed.

I usually complete my chores before making to bed.
