Dear news coverage, It must be a very difficult job to talk about absolutely nothing for hours on end during the night as the results come in, particularly early on when there were very few results to analyse. I marvelled at some of your ticker tape headlines… ‘Breaking News – Exit polls can sometimes be incorrect’. How can that be breaking news? Also, if they can sometimes be wrong (and spectacularly wrong relatively recently) why do you bother to do them? Here we are in the middle of the morning and there is still lots of speculation going on, charts to be shown and discussed, pie charts in pretty colours, ‘experts’ and pundits discussing the what-ifs, and if onlys, everyone second guessing everything. Watching it is exhausting, so actually producing the content must be even worse!
Dear Barcelona, What a wonderful place you were for a long weekend’s break. Hopefully I will find some time before too long to write a post or two about you.
Dear readers and fellow bloggers, I must apologise for my absence at your blogs. I’ll get round to catching up soon – I am not ignoring you, I promise. My Inbox is bulging with notifications of posts – none of which I want to miss.
Dear ‘no cord’, easy touch window blinds, You are a total mystery. I have read instructions, I have looked at YouTube videos and I can still not get you to ‘open’ with a light touch on the two little plastic handles at the bottom. Closing your slats, or putting you up or down I have mastered quite proficiently, but getting you to be down with the slats open seems to be beyond me. What is the trick?
Dear baby bird, It looked like you were enjoying the bird bath, and taking your instructions from your parent very seriously and having a good splash around.
