I did so much work on the computer this week I think I’ve gone blind and developed a couple of long-term wrist injuries! I boasted a couple of weeks ago about typing 36 000 words from Monday to Friday. This week – Monday to Friday – I typed 41 000 words! I feel like bragging about it!

This week my late-grandmother’s house was listed for sale, and real estate agents are… Lord, real estate agents really have no idea.

So Beijing was awarded the 2022 Winter Olympics. However, almost all the other contenders had to drop out! It was a foregone conclusion. Ukraine was a top contender for 2022 until Russia invaded, and they had to pull their bid. A pity, because I’ve been to the ski resort in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains where it would have been – a number of times. It breaks my heart Russia got their Games, and then stole Ukraine’s chance the week after Sochi finished, when they invaded Crimea.

The part of Ukraine the Olympics would have been:

Got this from Dear Author, but in London they were supposed to be building a women’s history museum, and instead turned it into a Jack the Ripper museum – so, instead of a museum about women’s rights, it’s now a museum about murdering women:

“Residents claim that council planners had been “hoodwinked” when they approved two planning applications submitted last year.

A document sent by Mr Palmer-Edgecumbe’s architects, Waugh Thistleton, last August to support the building’s conversion from a disused Victorian shop and flats into a museum included pictures of suffragettes and equal pay campaigners and designs for a museum called the Museum of Women’s History.”

I usually hate it when silly, pointless news stories take all the attention away from important stuff, but this one had me laughing for half an hour, so I’m going to mention it:
