Me on Monday | 30 May

It was a week of mixed weather, admin, horrific news and preparing for a road trip.

  • I went to see Chelsea in Bloom (more on that soon)
  • We had a virtual meeting with a mental health professional
  • I was left visibly shaken and distressed after learning about the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas. See here for a measured commentary
  • I went to the salon to have my eyebrows done
  • I was pinged for a possible Covid contact – I tested negative twice
  • I went for a pedicure
  • The Brainy One and The Boy went for haircuts
  • I booked tickets for Top Gun: Maverick
  • We left London for a road trip
  • I celebrated my birthday

  1. I have seen many photos on Insta of Chelsea in Bloom – OM goodness, people are so creative. You have had a busy week.

    I read the linked Cup of Jo … there is so much to say, (& most of it not very nice), I’ve already cried it, shouted it because nothing will change there.

  2. Belated happy birthday! Hope you are having a lovely week of celebrations on your road trip.
    The news from America is absolutely heartbreakingly tragic. It is impossible for us to comprehend the anguish of those parents. I do not understand their reasoning regarding guns, nor their easy access into schools. Locally to me gates are shut after registration and the only way someone can get into the school is by requesting access via an intercom. And this security is an area where we do not have gun crime! The onus should not be on the children to know what to do to save themselves, they should not be in a position of vulnerability in the first place.
    Looking forward to seeing your holiday pictures very soon – enjoy your Jubilee celebrations!

  3. I was saddened to read in the paper that some of those wonderful Chelsea flower displays were vandalised by a mob of idiots – why? What is the point of doing that? I despair sometimes that the world is being taken over by mindless fools.
    The situation in the USA is so frightening, I cannot fathom what those parents are going through. I read Cup of Jo and ended up so upset and angry.

    1. It’s hard to know how to feel and what to think after the tragedy in Texas. All we can do is to keep going and hope (pray) that law makers in the US come to their senses.
