Up at 6am - just waiting for it to get light so I can dog walk. The weather has been terrible - very cold, wet and gales - sudden squalls setting off all the car alarms and things falling from the sky thatsound like half bricks.
I watched the final of Masterchef - I wish I hadn't. It's the only 'reality' show worth watching ( the professional one, not the amateur one ) and is all about talent - and not silly stunts like cooking for the army or the cast of Eastenders - I've enjoyed it so far - but really can't get my head around the concept of 'winning' - it seems pointless at the end.
Worked really hard yesterday and managed to get loads done - but still have one project left to do - planning on trying to break the back of it tomorrow and then completing Monday - have quite a lot on next week so I'm going to have to knuckle down.
Today will mostly be cleaning and house stuff. The weather may have been rubbish ( although I'm sure that we had heavy snow at this time last year ) but things are still growing in the garden - mostly trees - my cherry is also budding and I have seen several in flower.
The school shootings in America don't require any comment from me - but as I was reading about them one one site - another offered me the chance to buy an exclusive 'designer' umbrella with a handle shaped like a rifle butt - in the same vein as 'ironic' ceramic vases shaped like revolvers. Sort of thing really pisses me off. You can get all sorts - combs and lighters shaped like handguns that you can carry in the same way ( people have been shot dead by the police in America without warning for carrying them ), pastry cutters, door handles - even pans that fry eggs in the shape of guns - and soft cushions. Tossers.
On the news this morning - it seems there have been a number of remembrance services and mass's for the nurse who killed herself last week - including one later today at Westminster Cathedral - so one can assume she was a catholic, a bit confusing - as I seem to remember that catholics are taught that, as someone who has committed a mortal sin, she is now in hell.
