I don’t know about you, but in the raging heat of the European heatwave, the Muppet Show of UK politics, and the reveal of how much profit oil companies make in a day; there was only one question on my mind. What if the bloke in the loo next to me, used to be a woman? I mean, he might be butcher and more manly for a start! 😁 Talk about getting your priorities in a mix. 😋

So snarkiness aside, I’m very glad to report I’m not ill, knackered, or in a state. I have been waiting to write that for too long. It was about midweek that whatever had been weighing on me, drifted away.

Perhaps, and if there’s a take away from today’s waffle, it’s to remember to breathe, and not get stuck into the What If. To accept that some things, I can’t fix and I can’t guarantee will always be available. Plus, if they are not, sure it may miff a few folk, but no one is going to die. Not like with unchecked carbon emissions… 😋

So, like the ongoing Muppet show (Disaster of Muppets for you metalheads and Eddie fans 😉), the bigotry reported, and the climate; maybe all I can do, and perhaps you as well, is do our bit locally. Avoid flying, cut down on meat, buy sustainably, and not be a dick to LGBTQ+ folk. Maybe if enough of us do what we can, maybe it’ll make a difference.

  1. Translation

    1. I am feeling fine(great)
    2. I am ignoring the of the antics of the dunderheads from the Westminster village(if only we could gett the news organs to do the same)

    1. Thanks for providing the TL/DR summary 😉

      I you want less dunderheadedness in your news, is a grand alternative to doom scrolling, IMO

  2. Welcome back to the land of the living. Good to have you back.
    Also Susie’s rules.
    Eat more fruit.
    Treat yourself at least once a week.
    Treat others more often.
    Spend no more than 10 minutes a day on Facebook/Twitter before it starts to upset/annoy you.
    Don’t accept ‘friend’ requests from anyone you don’t already know.
    Read more. Use your library often.
    Stop worrying about what other people might think of you. They probably aren’t anyway.
    Commit random acts of kindness.
    Avoid anything with the word ‘Celebrity’ or ‘Reality’ in the title.
    Look after your knees.

    1. Wise words. Thank you, Susie.

      “Commit random acts of kindness.” – very much those, yes.

      The comment about knees made me chuckle. Does moisturisering them count? 🙂

  3. Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’99…

    Not a dud in it.

    Glad you are feeling better and able to write so! In the end, we can only tidy our own corners and hope that others do the same – inspired, one would hope, by our actions (or we inspired by theirs, either way).

    1. Choon, innit! 😉 Absolutely not a dud.

      I’m afraid I’m off an age where when I see the number 99, I’m reminded of the KLF. “Make mine a ninety nine!” 🙂

      Let’s hope small acts of kindness and action build up into something larger than us.

  4. I’m glad things are better, Lynn. It’s taken a while, for which I’m sending hugs.

    When things will get better on the social and political front I do not know. But all I can say is that the real Muppets at least managed to bring joy, despite the zany chaos (or because of it), whereas the world at the moment isn’t very funny.

    Have a good weekend.

    1. Thank you, Sue. It’s taken a while longer than I would’ve liked. 🙂 Still, sets you up for old age eh? 😉

      I am hoping that folk will start to see through the lies and distraction techniques employed. Then, maybe, we can return to dull and boring, rather than the soap opera that’s currently playing out. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns.

    1. Thank you Lotte – so am I 😁 I was listening to some folk talk about their experiences with COVID, and it seems I got away quite lightly. Some have been really affected by it.
