Oh dear. The world really is conspiring against me. I woke this morning to the news that Boris Johnson has hired Tony Abbott as a Brexit trade advisor. This is … Continue reading The end is near!
One thing I will forever remember from this pandemic is our capacity for humour at a time of adversity. Every day brings new laugh-out-loud moments. The tweet below from the … Continue reading Humour in adversity

I just watched an interesting program on Australia’s tardiness in addressing the climate emergency. It was published in April this year along with an article outlining Australia’s efforts. There’s positive … Continue reading Australia worst country for electric car charging points
We finally got some snow today. The first snow of the year and winter. It was beautiful but will probably be all gone by tomorrow. Daniel told me that he … Continue reading Snow and Brexit chaos
Elizabeth had her Highland Dance exam today and it went very well. Here she is before the exam. Her kilt was too long so I got some braces and hitched … Continue reading Highland dancing and trees
I’m delving into the depths of the gossip columnists by writing this but it’s too dreadfully hypocritical not to share. Who needs fiction when there’s real life? You may have … Continue reading Anti-gay-marriage campaigner has affair and leaves wife and kids

Wars are not necessarily won by the army with the biggest guns, although I don’t doubt it helps. They are won by the side that makes clever decisions and has … Continue reading The pen is mightier than the sword
John Crace from The Guardian calls Theresa May the Maybot. I think it’s very apt because she has come across as stilted and robotic in this election campaign, repeating memes … Continue reading The Maybot
I’ll likely be voting for Labour or SNP on Thursday. I haven’t yet decided which party but I’m leaning towards Labour because I really like Jeremy Corbyn and I want … Continue reading Liar, Liar!
It’s hard to see how the Donald Tump presidency will survive four years given the amount of lunacy and chaos he has unleashed in just three weeks. Sometimes I feel … Continue reading The dumbest of the dumb
