It has been a wee while since I released one of these, apologies. It has been a rather busy start to my year so far, to name a few things, covid knocking me out for a couple of weeks, family commitments and work, I do feel like the months are flying by though, is it just me?
As usual I will share my stats with you but I'm keeping some close to my chest for now, because I am celebrating my one year Blog-versary next month and as much I like boasting, I'm sure you readers and supporters don't want to know about it twice.
With 763 followers now on Twitter, it is definitely working for me and I have no intention of leaving this site whatsoever.
I have had over 3,500 page views on the blog. This is huge to me. It's the number when a visitor reads an individual page, I'm pleased because it also means my readers are viewing several pages upon their visits, which is exactly what I need.
And now my Word of the week is:
Facetious. The dictionary meaning; not serious about a serious subject, an attempt to be funny or appear clever. I just love this word, I quite often use this one it just rolls off the tongue for me.
Now time for some gossip:
Will Smith at the Oscars
Well, talk about giving everyone something to talk about, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon too. I put out a tweet asking for thoughts on it the day after and it was a mixed feedback, somewhere between 'he should hand back his Oscar' to 'he was defending his wife'.
Personally I don't think Chris Rock should have stooped that low and I don't think Will Smith should have made a show like he did. Both were very silly in my eyes.
I think Will was rather ott (over the top) with the swearing part, I think the huge slap on stage said plenty enough. But well done to Chris who while shocked, carried on professionally.
Was anyone in the right here?
I had to mention it because it still feels wrong to me, in every way. I don't know about you but watching it unfold in front of my eyes every evening is quite soul destroying, my heart pours for them. The Ukrainian people are just like me and you, they work hard, they go to church, but above all they love their Country.
I was just wondering though, can we believe everything the media are telling us? Or how do we decide between reliable facts or fake news?
We are told the Russian soldiers had been given orders but didn't exactly know what for until they arrived at the Ukraine borders. True? Or are they really clued up on what's happening?
We are told Putin is lying to the people of Russia, is he? Are they innocent? They must have some idea of what their Leader is really up to.
Cadbury chocolate bars
Is it just me, Cadbury have actually shrunk their family bars. I thought I would do some research into this to find out if it was true.
To my amazement, it seems I was indeed correct, they have shrunk them down 10% to reduce the calories to less than 200. They announced last year they wish to play their part in tackling obesity however prices have pretty much stayed the same. Do you think this is ok?
I don't know about you, but I need to go to a huge wedding celebration right now. A church ceremony followed by a dance all night kind of celebration. I went through four years where I attended a wedding every year, I made it my thing and I was gutted when covid kicked our butt's and put a stop to my annual tradition, now I don't have one invitation.
I do love a good wedding though, they're emotional, fun and exciting all at the same time. I buy a new outfit for a different wedding and love accessorising too. They're a feel-good occasion. I am just pretty desperate for the next one. When was the last wedding you attended?
Do you have great news to share this week?
If you could change two things about the world right now, what would they be?
