Am I the only one who thinks that the World, through the eyes of the media, is just generally an awful place? This sort of follows on from yesterday’s post of our media making it sound like Britain was going to disappear from the World because of a slight temperature drop and some snow!!! I do not watch the news as I feel that they present their spin on it, I do read the headlines but very rarely get further to reading a whole article and the best way to get the news is the five minutes on the hour on the radio which gives you the headlines and a quick synopsis which tends to be a statement of facts!
However I do feel that the joy is going out of the World, people don’t seem to be happy unless they are complaining or arguing and I find it very tiring. We all need to read the books or watch the Harry Potter films again or The Wizard of Oz or any number of movies or books which take us away from all this negative and back to our happy places.
Now some may say I am contradicting myself by discussing this but since I have been watching a bit more TV than normal I wanted to share this documentary with you. I don’t know if you have seen it but it is currently showing its third season here in the UK and the first two were fascinating. Based upon the release of government documents in the UK and US after seventy years under the Freedom of Information Acts and the fact that both our Governments felt that Hitler did not actually die in the Fuhrer Bunker at the end of the war and did, in fact, manage to escape to South America.
The investigations have been done in a very thorough and methodical way and what they have found has been fascinating. When I was in school we were just taught that he died by his own hand at the end of the war and that was that and I had not heard of this theory before but apparently a lot of people believe he did survive. It is worth watching and I loved it as I am quite a history nerd especially as my father was in the RAF during the war.
I have had some visitors today, Jayne, Mom of Eldest’s best friend who bought some lovely flowers and chocolates and then Pat & Alan friends from the Village, who came this afternoon with more flowers. It was great to seem them and now the house looks Spring like with my flowers.
Well for all the hysteria yesterday it DID NOT look like this, this morning. In fact the snow we have had during the day has not even covered the garden!!!! A huge disappointment to Treacle as you can imagine.
This was what we expected!!! This was taken in 2010 the last time we really had snow and you can telll how deep it is. These are the steps which go up to the garden and those are my pots on the steps. Now this was snow!!!! There is supposed to be some more later in the week but who knows!
I have ordered some fabric for my table runner I am planning for our friends wedding anniversary so will show you that when it arrives but have not done anything else in the sewing room. I think I will spend tomorrow in there, especially as it is very warm in Eldest’s room as it is smaller than the others and next to our boiler!!!!!
I hope you are having a Terrific Tuesday and if it is cold with you, you are staying warm and toasty.
Hugs, Susie xx
