We were amongst the first people in the area to get a television and news of its arrival percolated through the neighbourhood. It was placed on a table to the left of the fireplace. My first attempts at watching it as a young girl were not that pleasant.

I remember having to leave the room because people were being shot. I did not associate violence, blood and gore with the Morning Room. I enthusiastically absorbed the tantalising images of dating and open topped cars, ice cream parlours and dances.
Sunday Morning Memories
On one occasion, when my parents were off shopping in Limerick, I even brought my pony Merrylegs into the room to witness our new mechanical marvel.. A bell on the wall of the Morning Room that had, in grander days, been used to summon servants, was now used to alert other members of the family about some unmissable programme.. We gathered together in awe to witness the Moon Landing. Given the wondrous vistas it offered it seemed only natural that our television required its very own special protective covering when it was resting.
The cloth used for this purpose was multi-coloured and from Africa…both of my parents had spent many years in foreign climes. Much though I loved our telly I did sometimes find it rather brazen. Cowboys galloping through the high chaparral, for example, was fine, but sometimes people kissed right there in front of me and made me squirm with embarrassment. It seemed unhygienic and silly.
What on earth was the point of it? And then I suddenly understood, I got it, I wanted to be kissed myself. I had fallen in love with Davy Jones of The Monkees. The Monkees were fabulous and their songs were great too, but Davy Jones was particularly gorgeous and not that much taller than myself. I raced into the Morning Room for our dates.
Romance had entered our country rectory. I did not want anyone else in the room while I adored him. This was just between Davy and myself. Wimbledon was another high-point of my television viewing. Though the players were in black and white they were very dramatic. Bjorn Borg was the good boy but many of the others threw tantrums and said rude things to umpires.
If they won their faces shone with joy.

I even sat in a seat beside its famous Centre Court and watched one of the matches. It was good to be there…. If you are in the mood for being read to click. Tags: memories Morning nostalgia room tv.
