3rd October

The calamities of the world ferment around us, we are once more into political conference time as well, Theresa May talking on Today this morning, she is a sensible voice for capitalism but I'm a socialist and as she walked her words round awkward subjects such as 'austerity' and Grenfell Tower I despaired.  She fronts some of the most stupid conservatives on record and I have absolutely no faith in their party whatsoever.  Well that's off my chest ;)
And talking of chests I am sporting a 24 hour ECG monitor for a heart that won't keep a rhythmical rhyme, which it has done for a great deal of my life along with high blood pressure.  Which all goes to show we should not go to the doctors with other ailments!  Knitting and walking has always been my cure.
I cannot understand the world I live in, a man so arrogant has to take many guns and fire upon innocent people, killing them with such brutality.  The quiet normal life of our village seems a haven from such violence.  Is it better not to talk about it and accept it or as I have found in my first blog this morning to accept and open one's heart to it.  Anyway conservatives are small fry on the world stage.
Going into Kirkby this morning we met C as we halted on a road junction and a quick chat produced the information that J would make the wooden boxes for flowers either side of the village which had been put forward at the last event meeting.  Funnily enough Paul had been to a meeting the night before of our sister village and been overwhelmed by the 15 members that sat on the committee.
They want to run our events leaflet with theres, but I think we should remain independent.  They are a scary lot, got rid of the previous committee, not by brute force I hasten to add, but definitely strong verbal argument, causing one of our village members to throw in the towel..... politics doesn't have to be big but sometimes it is better to keep a cool distance!

  1. Not thinking this man was arrogant. Lost, desperate, angry, or lonely. A really sad soul as this is not something anyone with any soul would do.

    1. I am not sure I can feel pity for him Tabor, at some point during the killing an inkling of what he was doing should have come to the fore.

  2. I agree with that last bit Thelma - I had my fill a few years ago.
    Interesting to read about your heart and other problems. I have just been diagnosed with T I A's and have not been presented with a battery of tests to undergo and visits to T I A clinics. I begin to wonder would it have been better to keep quiet.

    1. Well don't worry Pat about it, had to look it up by the way, just continue to be yourself. I bought a BP monitor last week taking it in hand my self, and have established the pattern of what is happening. But do take the move carefully, and watch what you eat ;).

  3. I can't watch it on TV; it is too heartbreaking. The news is more and more terrible every day.

    1. Take courage from the fact that there are a lot of brave people in the world, the bad few just make more news than the good....
