I was very, very tired today. It’s been a week of late nights culminating in the trip to Peckham last night and the lonely train ride home. Suffice it to say, I didn’t get up at 6:30am to go to the gym.
I did go into town to shop and then back home for housework…which was a major effort in keeping my eyes open. It was so bad late on that I was forced to keep turning the Dyson on so the noise would jolt me awake.
I did have a bit of a lay down in the afternoon and listened to the radio (mainly to hear an interview with Joanna Trollope about her new book) but I didn’t have a nap. I’m not quite at the granny stage yet.
After lunch we had a lovely walk in the park. The sun was out, the sky was blue, it was all very glorious. The temperature has also climbed a bit (double figures today) making everything happy and mild.
Of course the Avenue was still muddy though the grass seems to be not so soft as it was earlier in the week. And, actually, I don’t feel we’ve had as much rain as we normally do this time of year. There’s more sun this February than I remember in years gone by. This could just be perception, I guess.
Another glorious spring Herald are these little bad boys…
Just before Mirinda came home I listened to most of the latest Trump press conference. Hilarious for the most part. In particular his diatribe about uranium in which he said:
“We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country. You know what uranium is, right? It’s a thing called nuclear weapons and other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things…”
Now, apart from the fact that Hillary Clinton did NOT give Russia 20% of the uranium in the US, this stuff is just moronic. I’m thinking that stupid people might get something out of his explanation about what uranium is and what it’s used for but, really, how thick do you have to be to think the above quote is coherent?
Okay I realise he’s using the sorts of words that scare the people who voted for him. All they would hear would be ‘uranium’ and ‘bad things’ however, life would be a hell of a lot different without uranium. For a clue as to what uranium is actually used for, I suggest looking at this website, Donald.
Also, it would appear that Russia actually produces more uranium than the US so why would Hillary have sold 20% of it to them? And why on earth would they have bought it? She must be one hell of a saleswoman. Coals to Newcastle, springs to mind.
