Tuesday Thoughts!

We managed to get into the garden at the weekend to do some tidying and there is still more to do but we made a start.

Above is how it looked before we started.  It was plants which had died down from last year which we had not trimmed at the end of the summer.

Here it is now trimmed and cleared.

We also tidyed the other side and swept the patio.  Treacle off up the garden to look for squirrels. 

You can see the primroses out after the bit of sunshine at the weekend. 

Treacle has found her football.

Treacle waiting for the squirrels to appear.

We will get some more done the next nice day but there are signs of Spring starting with spring shoots appearing. 


Normally I don’t, on my blog, voice opinions regarding every day things, the old adage being don’t talk about politics or religion!  However over the last few days our news has been full of the interview that the Duke & Duchess of Sussex have given to Oprah Winfrey.  There has been two clips released to advertise the interview and in one the Duchess has said “that her experiences in Britain had been “almost unsurvivable””.  Now I know that certain things were said by some people regarding the Duchess and should not have been, but the majority of the British people welcomed her and were happy for her and the Duke. 

Personally I hate the fact that these two are sitting in California portraying Britain to the World as a bigoted nation who hated the Duchess and wanted them out of the country!  They profess to hate the media and the intrustion into their lives but then give endless interviews, make podcasts and take money telling us how we should and should not be living!  So they want the media when it is good for them but want to send it away when it is not!  Currently the Duke of Edinburgh is in hospital and has had to move to a specialist unit for further treatment and yet these vain, vacuous pair are sitting there bleating on about how bad their life was in the UK and have a “woe is me” attitude.  I, for one, will not be watching this interview and hope that they are happy where they are but stop all this trying to be relevant.  They have decided not to work as full time Royals, so therefore get on with your lives without the endless how badly we are treated by everyone story because it is getting old! 


I hope you lovely lot are having a thrilling Tuesday.  It is grey and dull here again but it is hopefully going to be sunny later in the week.  Treacle will be here tomorrow with The Wednesday Wag.   

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    Not being British and not reading/watching British news about them, I can tell you I have been heartily sick of seeing their “we want privacy” faces all over the place. I don’t believe the Brits gave them the hard time they are bleating about. If she is that weak a person, then she has more issues then I think!! If they really wanted out of the spotlight, they would have moved to somewhere in Africa, where they could help the continent they “love” without media attention, instead of moving to Hollywood!! You are right, they want to control the narrative with the media and pout like children when they can’t. I still think she was not even close to the best choice for a wife for Harry, but he neglected to get my opinion on the matter!! Love the way the garden is looking and with the nice weather, Treacle could find her football!!

    Your garden looks so beautiful and ship-shape. We have brutal temps here today with winds gusting and zero windchills. Our spring flowers that are trying to emerge from the soil are not going to be happy today. I think Prince Harry made a huge and life-changing mistake but that’s my opinion. I hope he doesn’t live to regret it one day.

    I totally agree with your take on that couple. I will not be watching the interview either as I am not a big fan of any of the people involved. Prince Harry made a big mistake in giving in to her and coming to live in this country. He is the one that had to give up everything including his military titles which meant so much to him. I don’t see this ending well for anyone. Besides many foundations like they want to set up are done so to funnel money into the pockets of the people setting them up and they have made no effort to disguise the fact that they want to become independently wealthy. They wanted the perks and not the work and I thoght the Queen handled it perfectly.. As far as I ca see the British welcomed her and she basically slapped them in the face, They are two spoiled, entitled people.
