Friday letters – the school summer holidays edition


Dear time,  You clearly ignored my last letter to you as you are flying past very quickly as usual.  Please, pretty please, could we have a little bit of a slow down?  If slowing down is not an option, an extra hour in the day would be a good start,  but the perfect solution would be an extra day in the week (a non-work day naturally).  Any chance?

Dear local people,  Batten down those hatches, stock up on plenty of supplies, abandon all hope of a quiet afternoon sitting in the garden with only the sound of birdsong for company…  The school holidays begin today and the little blighters will be everywhere. 

Dear airports,  I have heard that today will be the busiest day of the year for travel.  I hope it all goes well for you.

Dear TV drama The Loch,  Well, that was six hours I won’t be getting back.  I stuck with you because I kept hoping you would improve, but sadly you didn’t, although perhaps the last episode was actually quite dramatic in some places.    I had high hopes for you, being set in the dramatic Scottish countryside, but sadly I was bitterly disappointed.  The writing was poor, the characters were unbelievable, there were shoals of  red herrings rather than just the odd one, the logic of the tale had huge holes in it and the story was just too preposterous.  If there is a second series (surely not) I won’t be watching, even if the scenery is beautiful.

Dear foxes,  I haven’t seen you in the garden for ages – what’s happened?

Dear all,  Have a good day.

  1. If that show comes to Australian TV, I’ll know to avoid it. I also like to avoid the shops during school holidays because of all the little people everywhere. Happy Friday, Elaine and have a great weekend.

  2. Now you mention it, what on earth is going on with time? On speed-enhancing stimulants one opines. As ever, thanks for the Friday smiles.

  3. Time never listens to me either. The further we get into this year, the more it seems to speed up. How is it summer holidays time already? (Today is my godson’s last day of nursery – come September he’ll be in Reception. Talk about time going to fast… I don’t feel like he’s old enough for proper school!)

  4. The Loch. Like you, I stuck with it through thin and thin (story line that was) and waited for it to eventually go deeper and behave like it should have. It didn’t. It behaved like some cheap afternoon TV drama, made to fill an hour between the lunch-time news and collecting the little darlings from school.

    Something on the TV …. but nothing which will stress your brain, because you’re going to need your brain for something worthy.

    I too was totally disappointed and found myself doing something I’ve never done before: shouting at the TV like it would make a difference.

    I could have written a better drama if my bottom had brushed past a keyboard, daily, for a few minutes each day.
    I’m glad it finally ended, and now hoping that it will be replaced with something worthy.

    GREAT post Elaine. ~ Cobs. xxx

  5. Aw, cute Snoopy. I could do with a deck chair like that, but I am afraid that once in I’d never get out again!

  6. Jude made me chuckle. 🙂 No use for a deckchair up here, Elaine. Just a bit more rain. 🙂 🙂 Happy weekend!

  8. Hahah, I watched The Loch too. Fortunately, my subconscious obviously realised it was rubbish long before I did, as I fell asleep during most episodes! What a load of poorly written dross. What’s next to watch??!

  9. I watched The Loch and found the ending was poor. There was such promise, and I can’t for the life of me understand how the psychologist guy fathomed who the killer was from the comment made by the killer.

Now it's your turn
