Today is Sunday 16th August

The day has not started well, and to be honest, I wish I’d stayed in bed.
The weather is pretty grotty again, but I don’t really care about that.
Hubby’s had a bad night, Maggie has been pacing all morning, and I’ve got horrendous cramp in my stomach as well as my back.
I got on the scales this morning and they didn’t stop spinning, so that has really got me down and I’m obviously going wrong somewhere.
Hubby’s looking through the news headlines and the wondrous Diva and Prince once again lead the way with their current mansion, expenses, staffing and ‘I feel sorry for me’ attitude.
I cannot get my head around the sums of money quoted, the more she has, the more she’s dissatisfied, and I reckon in a couple of months they’ll be on the move yet again. Already they’ve had three, or is it four, residences since leaving the Royal Hub in April for a quiet (not) private (don’t understand the meaning of the word) life (I’m unhappy and nobody cares).

The government is lying through their teeth about Coronavirus, having reduced the number of deaths by over five and a half thousand last week because it ‘looked better’, and not reporting for two days any new cases, when in the headlines the UK has had a daily increase of over 1000 new cases for the past five consecutive days. They have gone ahead with plans to re-open other business lines, and in the next breath say that the figures will begin (???? have they not already??? ) to increase again. It’s like being on a rollercoaster gaining momentum and no way of getting off.

Hubby has just read out a headline:
“I have a credit card – now I can spend £750,000 on a photo of a potato’
(source)

Come here Pal! You can take pics of all the potatoes you like and I’ll just take £1000 for each!
Note: they are running out of news as this article was written in January 2016!!!!

If I needed confirmation, that was it. The world has gone mad.
Maybe going back to bed isn’t such a bad idea afterall!
Take care everyone and keep safe.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    Interesting, so far our media has no covered the latest instalment of megan chronicles, which is highly unusual. Maybe our media are as fed up with them as we are. So sorry you all didn’t have a good night. I hope everyone feels better today. As for the world, I’ve been saying it’s gone mad for a long tine. We had an opportunity to learn from the coronavirus and change our ways. Some people have but from what I’m seeing and reading, we’re more messed up than before.

    With everything that’s going on with me and the idiots not learning from coronavirus or giving a dam following, I feel I need to hibernate and not leave the comfort of my home, to feel tolerable, when I am intolerant.

  4. You’re so right!!!! ….Yes, the world has gone crazy!!!! Enjoyed reading your post! Hope you have a peaceful day! 💙

  5. I feel England is handling the COVID-19 better us. Our news so depressing now Trump is going after the so he can the election tainted and refuse to give up the power. Megan’s chronicles are nothing but a soap affair. It is amusing to read some of them of the articles about them. Looking for good news, I am happy we can get our balance okay so our giver can continue. Stay safe.

    • Hi Bettylouise. I’m afraid you are likely to be in a minority in thinking the UK has handled the virus better than the US. Our government is tweaking figures depending on who is reporting them and where. They reduced the number of deaths having already excluded those that had died in care homes. and today’s figures show over 1000 new cases again yet BoJo is still intent on opening up business and relaxing restrictions. I appreciate the need for business to thrive, but the way it is being encouraged is contradictory. One minute it’s work at home, the next get back in the office. use public transport, but keep your social distance. On the tube that is a farce.
      Troubling times everywhere and IMO, TPTB are compounding an already delicate issue with their dithering, about turns on decisions and one set of rules for them and another set for the rest of us. It does not bode well for confidence.
      MM is a headline grabber and no-one would give her the time of day before her marriage. I gave her the benefit of the doubt in the beginning, but that was very much misplaced. IMO he has made a huge mistake and it is costing him dearly in more ways than financial.
      Hope you are keeping OK. Take care.

    The governmental shenanigans continue. I’m very worried politically speaking. I’m terrified when I think about coronavirus. Our family is at DEFCON 2 so we are taking all sorts of precautions and limiting our exposure. This is important since I’m back working on a couple projects and Sparky is back at the library. He is afraid that if the library patronage doesn’t increase he will be laid-off.

    • I hope things settle down for you. It’s worrying times, especially for those in the work place. We too aren’t mixing with anyone unless we have to. No major shopping due this week and next week sees us having our boiler serviced and the car going in for MOT. Our gas engineer is an independent and we are being given a courtesy car so I shall be wearing my gloves and mask and wiping everything down before I get in it.
