No news is good news

I have just got up and Hubby has kindly left the radio on thru his computer whilst he took the dog out. (We had to take the DAB aerial down when we did our secondary glazing and as we were out yesterday, we haven’t got round to putting it back up yet).
I know there isn’t much news these days, but this broadcast proves it.

For the past half hour I have been listening to a sports report about a team playing against Manchester United at the weekend, and coming second last year to Manchester City.
Not following the footie, I have no idea what team he’s talking about, or when.
One phrase caught my ear…..’ pick themselves up now’ and initially I thought the script a little restrictive as the reporter said this of every team he was discussing.

After ten minutes (I’m really awake!), I finally cottoned on that the broadcast was on a ten second loop.
united city

Hurrah!
Hubby has just got back. It’s been 45 minutes and he can now turn the damn thing off because I don’t know how on his computer and it looked like he was in the middle of something so I couldn’t just switch off!

I wonder if ‘they’ won?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
