We’re not afraid to admit that we are a little bit addicted to Call the Midwife. We watch it religiously when it’s on TV, we miss it painfully during the months when it’s not, and we gobble up any snippets of information we can find about what’s coming up in new episodes.
And if you agree with the following statements, there’s a good chance you’re addicted to Call the Midwife too…
You only travel by bicycle
Obviously. Bumping over cobbles is the only practical way to get yourself around. If it doesn’t fit in your pannier, it’s not an essential.
You do this at the start of each new episode
Because what else is there to do.
You always have a handkerchief on your person
You never know when you might come face to face with your next tragedy. And if Trixie’s taught you anything, it’s that running mascara is a look best avoided.
You only listen to Elvis Presley
You don’t even remember who Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Beyonce are. All you need is Elvis’s swaying hips and seductive tones.
You’ve started drinking Babysham like it’s 1959
Forget G&Ts, fancy cocktails or a nice restorative glass of red. Babysham, eggnog and Cinzano Bianco are your tipples of choice. And you actually enjoy drinking them.
You are strangely protective of cake
Victoria sponges, battenburgs, meringues topped with cherries. Your sweet tweets get a fancier disguise than just being popped in a tin in the cupboard. You never know who might be prompted to go in search of your cake…
You always answer your phone
You know, just in case there’s a woman in labour at the other end. You wouldn’t want to miss that call because…
You’re pretty sure you could help deliver a baby
“Just little pushes now…”
You’ve taken this personality quiz about a thousand times trying to get Trixie
Haven’t taken it yet? You know what to do…
You’ve started flirting with your doctor
Just in case. Nun or not, there is a real chance you could be sitting on your very own Turnadette-style love story…
You regularly use words like tickety-boo and shilly-shally
Because golly gosh, you can’t think of a single good reason not to.
You reel off wise words of wisdom at the end of each day
And you’re 80% sure your friends don’t think it’s weird.
“Sometimes in life, one has to take a chance. Without risk, there’s no possibility. Without potential loss, no prize…”
