Mother rarely watches ITV 10 o’clock news. But when she does, a very strange thing happens.
Tom Bradby always gets his words in a muddle.
How can one take global news seriously when the person reading it can’t read the script properly?
Reginald Bosanquet, Kenneth Kendal and Sir Gordon of Crunchie (aka Honeycombe) are spinning in their graves. A newsreader who talks complete shite. Who’d a thunk it???
Thank God George Alagiah’s back. There is hope for the future of glorified Town Crying yet………
Mother is saddened to hear the news of the death of Alan Rickman. The chap who made up for the dodgy, mid Atlantic, not at all Nottinghamshire accent of Kevin Costner in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Cue Brian Adams……..
The idea of cancelling Christmas and scooping out somebody’s heart with a spoon when they upset you has always appealed to Mother. Not that she’s at all violent…..
Rickman’s best film, in Mother’s humble opinion, is Truly, Madly, Deeply, which, although it deals with devastating grief, is also quite uplifting. Imagine ghosts having a party in your living room. Anybody would be prepared to move on after that racket.
Although, things might be happening the other way round if our current neighbours don’t shut up…
It’s either them or us. Have locked away the cutlery……….
Today we have the sad news that David Bowie has died having suffered from cancer for 18 months.
Mother is sure that people will soon be suggesting their favourite Bowie songs. Very serious discussions will emerge analysing if Life on Mars is more creatively worthy than Starman or Modern Love.
Mother, heathen that she is, likes the Laughing Gnome.
RIP Bowie, off on a never ending train to Eastbourne……
Happy New Year to all my loyal fans.
Mother says that 2016 is going to be good. Because this is the year she retires. The advance notice has gone in and all the appropriate forms have been sent for. In just over 4 months time she will be under my feet all day. Bugger….
I think 2016 will be the year that we disappear under a mountain of wool. Yes folks, Woolly Bob is still popular. It would appear that a Bob is for life, not just for Christmas………
