And another one:
This week we discovered why all of the flowers out the back keep getting demolished! We’ve had petals everywhere for a few weeks!
And all our other birds have started turning up – it’s nearly spring, and they come to the door for snacks. On Wednesday we had magpie visitors for the first time this season.
It is very sunny here every day, and I’m starting to feel the allergies coming, but I can’t wait! 🙂
Because I’m often up really late at night, and because we are nearly a full day ahead of the Americas, I have been watching some of the Olympics live in the middle of the night. I can’t believe how many drug cheats there still are. While the US is at (verbal) war with Russia in the pool, we are being attacked by China (and hacked, and abused in their media) because one of our swimmers called a drug cheat… a drug cheat. Who says sport isn’t political!
“Medals over Morals” was what an official said about the Russian doping program. I like it. 🙂
What has been happening while the world has been watching Rio. X
While everyone is watching the sport, and obsessing over Trump (WHAT a guy), Putin has been moving MASSIVE conveys of tanks and missiles to the Ukrainian border. He invaded Georgia after the Beijing Olympics. He first invaded Ukraine immediately after the Sochi Olympics. And he is about to invade other parts of Ukraine as soon as the Rio Olympics finish.
But – hey – sport!
