I can’t believe I’m now listing to The Archers omnibus…

Kicking off with Sunday Worship, the BBC News, Sunday, News & Papers and now Tweet of the Day, in the process I’ve learnt about the Dipper:

Tulip lasagna planting:

The Coen brothers:

Democracy (or the increasing lack of) in Hong Kong:

The life of Des O’Connor:

And am now facing Desert Island Discs with Labour leader Kier Starmer… Enough!

I’m accumulating cups of tea:

And my head is going to explode if I have to stay tuned to any more thoroughly-middle-class ‘easy listening’. Sorry, I love the BBC but this is too much.

So why am I doing it?

Because I’m supervising this little bundle on life, who is bringing joy and leaping and pouncing and chewing and chasing into our lives again.

BBC Radio 4 is intended to bring soothing narcolepsy to her new kitchen home.

Happy days!

But it’s like having a baby again; bursts of all-action energy and spells of total inactivity. Still, it’s doing me good.

I read an excellent piece of advice in the week: whatever your faith (or lack of it) everyone should have a Sabbath; a day of rest where you sit, relax and put jobs aside. I’ve not been properly idle forever.

Despite The Archers, it’s good to sit still for a few hours on a Sunday.

      1. John. We are both well if a bit fed up with these mad times. We still haven’t got another dog. Would like to have a whippet bedlington but have decided to wait for a rescue as we expect that rescues will be flooded with unwanted dogs when/if life returns to anything like normal. Would be good to meet up when it is possible to have a non covid lunch. Jim

      2. A whippet bedlington was what we always wanted too! Sadly you’re likely right on folk abandoning all these puppies, which have appeared in the park, post pandemic. Don’t leave it too long though… every day without a hound is the poorer for it. And definitely yes to lunch when it becomes possible again.
