Even though I had access to 26 channels and a choice of more than 60 movies during my short stay in hospital, I spent most of the time watching the BBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics from Sochi.
No matter how much I surprised myself by getting into the Summer Olympics the other year, when it comes to these big sporting occasions my heart belongs to the Winter games.
Obviously the ever-present element of danger in all of the events is a big plus (even figure skating - which is basically ballroom dancing on ice - employs razor sharp blades, and whoever dreamed up the louge and skeleton was clearly a sadist), complemented by the beauty of the snow-laden landscapes.
As much as I enjoy the brutality of the ice hockey, the sport I enjoy most is the curling. Every Olympics I appreciate it a bit more, as I grasp the terminology, elegant strategy and subtle rules a bit more.
I've tuned in to the curling every games since we won the gold in 2002 - here's hoping Eve Muirhead and her gals can bring the medal home for us again this year.
Since coming home on Wednesday evening, most of my TV time has been devoted to catching up on the shows I missed while I was away, which included Rachel and I catching up with the premier episode of season two of Nashville (More 4).
Picking up in the aftermath of the car crash involving Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) and Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), with Rayna in a coma and Deacon in prison, the saga of country music machinations continued apace.
Young pop-country star Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) was on particularly top form, cynically using Rayna's tragedy to boost her own popularity.
Next week, we have the return of Modern Family (Sky 1) to look forward to, for its fifth season, with a double-bill of episodes on Monday. This is another show that Rachel and I both enjoy immensely.
But, of course, the adrenalin-fuelled highlight of the week will probably be the resumption of the second season of Arrow (Sky 1) on Thursday, which has really come into its own for me.
I'd still prefer less flashbacks to the island and more about the goings-on in Starling City, but that's a minor gripe.
