we bought a new 50inch tv screen

simon bought it, not sure how much. it arrived today which was very quick delivery. it is a smart tv, (which means it has its own built in freebox, and that means the one we have may be used to run the old tv in the bedroom , so maybe simon can watch his snooker there. hmm, i might be able to watch more tv on this new screen).

it is sharp brand, i googled it and it gives me one that sells for £330. he tells me it is £360.  hope that is the one simon got.  it is  very big the screen, we had the old one at 40inch, whcih now that i can compare is really very small;  and then it went wrong . simon says it tends to go wrong after 5yrs old.  and we reverted to an old tv with a tv tube protrubing out the back, whcih has a small screen.

i guess we will soon get used to seeing this big screen and will find it indispensable. haha. that is life isn’t it? we dont like the changes, then we get used to it, and prefer it in fact, and then when it goes wrong and we have to change again, we dont like that and so on. i think this size is the one we should stick to, any bigger and i think it will be a strain on the eyes , we will keep trying to lean back . but who knows, we humans are strange creatures and maybe we get to like bigger and bigger screens, until the whole wall is it. i guess the price does get smaller over the years. i can remember these things cost over £1000 when they first came out. of course the £ has got smaller too. so the drop in prices is even more dramatic. now with smart phones costing like £600 , people might say tv is really very cheap. though u have to consider you can get reconditioned smartphones for £20, at least that was what simon says he got his. but he never uses it to surf the internet, so maybe it is not really that suitable for internet work. he uses it like an ordinary phone to make or receive calls.

added. 2pm

simon says the screws were the wrong size, meant to be for the wall mounts, not for the legs to stand on. he contacted the help line and they said there should be both screws supplied, the leg stand ones are silver. well, he just found them, still inside the original plastic pack , it had got stuck in there and he missed seeing it. so now he is fixing the stand  to the bottom of the screen and we will have it free standing. we were using books before and propping it up against the wall. so

      these flat screen tvs first came in about late 90s, so it looks like it took me more than 20yrs to get into them. so i have finally got into the 21st century. it took me 20yrs haha.
