The price of Harry and Meghan’s new home is obscene. Especially when we are facing political uncertainty at the moment. Had this £2.4m been spent on other royals, such as William and Kate, it wouldn’t seem quite so appalling because we the public – like it or not – are essentially paying their wages.
The week that Trump came to Portsmouth. Never has a person in recent times so divided opinion. Personally I find it astonishing that a man who has piped up with the stuff he has now finds himself in such a position of power.
Oh Madonna. Once upon a time you were the ultimate queen of pop and ruler of raunchy. Then you brought out the Sex book and proceeded to slide down the slippery slope known as Totally Embarrassing Yourself So Please Stop.
The Jeremy Kyle Show may have now been axed but it’s only one of many television shows that take advantage of the people appearing on it. I do not mean that it takes advantage of all the people who willingly choose to go on it, but certainly the vulnerable and disadvantaged.
This week I went to the swimming pool. I have noticed that an increasing number of folk have taken to just walking in said pool which, I know, is a legitimate form of exercise, especially if you are injured or elderly.
I have been thinking this week about the wasteful years in which we live. It is far too easy for many of us to read or hear the word ‘environment’ and start muttering about patchouli-wreathed hippies and people currently causing a nuisance to others by protesting on the streets of London.
With the recent uplifting weather, my husband and I have been on our first trail runs of the year together. This requires his running slower and my panting more, but the views more than make up for it.
The government has come under criticism (I could probably just stop writing there) for suggesting schools should be held accountable for not spotting the warning signs of knife and violent crime among young people.
In times of political chaos, it is often wise to take a moment to think instead of all the very simple things that make life really rather wonderful. In the face of political muppetry, it’s too easy to forget how great the tiny stuff can make us feel.
