The Eurovision Song Contest

Had a grand plan to have a little eurovision party with the youngest…. 

As you know I was a ‘remainer’ re the UK referendum

The youngest had never seen eurovision

I even plied him with a drop of wine in his lemonade

Alas….I fear he is a Brexiteer

The hip hop yodelling combo was the final nail in the coffin….he could take no more 

And yes he ‘got’ the camp kitch of the whole affair….but ….to quote

‘There’s camp kitch and theres camp kitch ….but THAT was not ‘different’…it just didn’t work’

We had a little bet on…..he went for Portugal….which miffed me somewhat as I wanted to 

I toyed with going for Croatia….a rather large gentleman who kept stepping from one side of the stage to the other…switching from bass to soprano like a couple of alter ego’s

…..and lets not even go there with the dance moves 

It must be said tho..when the UK came on…we both decided that was the best pop song thus far….its early days tho….there are 25 songs still to go….TWENTY FIVE….and thats BEFORE the voting starts…
Phew….blimey… an epic act of endurance too far….as far as the youngest is concerned

‘NEVER ask me to watch that AGAIN’ said he 

And he’s now gone to bed despite me trying to persuade him that the voting is the best bit

So that’s that then

Finally got used to the fact of Brexit

Maybe

SOUP

Hmmmm…. what’s it made of?…..lets see…..

Weeeeell…….the best one I make consists of…whizzing some chilli,garlic and ginger in the bottom of a pan…chopping a load of carrots ….chucking those in with some onion and celery….a little water ( just for the stock cube)…. stick the lid on….and just leave it to simmer…stirring occaisionally…not too much water is needed….the veg just does it itself…you know…kind of produces the right amount of fluid

Once the veg is cooked….and before the pan burns out…. 

This is the best bit….

A really BIG whizz with a…. 

With a…. 

Erm….its a THING I have… 

Its electric…

Don’t know what its called… 

I’ve had it a long time 

Anyway….you just whizz it with this thing

Hmmmm….actually you have to be a BIT vareful at this stage….

Well….you do if you whizz it in the pan like I do….there’s a kind of technique whereby you have to whizz with one hand and hold the lid at an angle with the other….otherwise….well you can imagine….and its happened more than once

ANYWAY…. 

It blends everything together….a little more fluid at this stage if you like

Whap it into bowls…a little stir of each bowl with a bit of corriander on top if you like

Hypnotise yourself as you watch it slowly swirl

SOUP!!!!

A mix of ingredients….whizzed around  

It all settles down eventually

And tastes delicious

THERE!!!…..who would have thought ‘Blog On!!!’ would add a recipe post to its eclectic randomness

and why not?

So….today Theresa May met with the queen to disolve parliament….we therefore now have no MP’s but merely candidates untill the brought foreward general election in June.

I don’t know about anyone else but I am in a complete state of flux

Never mind depression….think am experiencing some kind of existential crisis….or mid life crisis….or just a state of more flux than usual…and I’m due back at work tomorrow

Apparantly the ‘transformation’ has occurred…I think…kind of

Am returning in a different role…have no idea who is in the team…which will be much smaller…I think

Phew…blimey

How does one reassure folk in a state of flux when I and everyone else seems to be in one

Hmmmm….dandilions will no longer cut it I feel.  Think we’ll have to try to up the game somehow

Hmmmm… Ok….the blossoms now in full glory….and the world is still revolving just about

I also have a solution to the exorbitant Brexit bill….something I’m sure I will be advised to do tomorrow in my own humble corner when I try to plug in

My theory is that it might work on a grander scale  for the financial institutions also….IT folk always say ‘First turn it off then on again’….maybe if all the financial imstitutions went down for 24 hours…. then

Bingo

Annual payments to all adults of say….hmmm….lets not be greedy….say 30 grand a year….we’d all be ok and it would be far cheaper than the current Brexit bill

Oh…and I’ve resigned from the labour party….well….although I am in the minority and LIKE Corbyn…I’m disappointed that the party is not getting behind him AND wish they were offering an alternative by backing remain

Its felt like cutting off a limb…have no idea how I will vote at this stage….have no idea how long I will survive in my job… or even how much longer the NHS and public sector will survive

Have no idea about the future at all…does anyone?

Yep…..living in the moment….literally

May the fourth be with you….or me….or whoever…..tomorrow that is
