Who hogs the TV remote in your house?

it is either the children or hubbie! I
rarely have a look in, I do stomp my feet when it comes to Downton Abbey, that
show is non negotiable! If hubbie even
steps within 10 yards of the remote I am giving him dirty looks. When the show is on I want complete radio
silence, there is no way I would allow any channel hopping during that precious
hour of me time!

usually wedges the remote deep into the side of the sofa, so usually only he can
find it and prise it out! I think then
he feels its safely going to stay on his channel and his channel only! The poor boys lately have had to watch Come Dine With Me, mummy is the softer touch I let them stay on their channel and I
end up making the most of yet another episode of the Smurfs on Pop.

habits is quite interesting; I was shocked 2% of pets control the
remote! I cannot see my hamster taking
any notice, although I guess the dog could carry it off in her mouth and hide
it somewhere!!! It comes as no surprise
the main hogger of the control is the males, it’s certainly the case here anyway!

reading through it maybe I should be hiding the remote, I am missing a trick! I am not that devious but I would certainly
use that tactic if anyone including the dog tried to switch channels during my
Downton Abbey timeā€¦

looks like the dog is getting closer to the remote by the minute!

Maybe that is a 2% statistic I need to keep
an eye on. Between hubbie, the kids and
the dog, I have no chance really. 
Luckily most of the time I am more than happy to watch the Smurfs or
Come Dine With Me. Although last night
hubbie was watching football on the telly, I admit if ever a time came to think
about hiding the remote it was then!
