Too depressing.

I want a glass of wine and watch stranger things. (How apt )

I was initially pro Brexit - then I did my research. How can people be so dim?
I was fed up of the impasse but STILL Couldn't vote bojo.

Happy to binge watch stranger things for next week or so . Sad

That's a really healthy thing to do.

Binge watching Mad Men; the blatant sexism and racism isn’t as bad as what goes on in BoJo’s head, and every so often spills out.

I haven’t seen Stranger Things

I used my Netflix free trial mostly because I wanted to see The Haunting of Hill House, which was brilliant.

I'm not American, but I was DEVASTATED when Trump won. I went offline for a while and during my down time I came up with a plan to support other women in my field, including mentoring and making myself available for coffee with newbies. It helped keep me going.

Also Netflix.

Nope. I am now planning at least 5 years of watching pink and fluffy programmes like When Calls the Heart, Anne of Green Gables, Virgin River and Little Women and reading lots and lots and lots of M.C. Beaton and Harlequin romances (formerly Mills & Boon) and Pocket Novels. I may even have a go at writing one or two. Along with several not-so-cosy crime novels that may or may not be wish-fulfilment based on real individuals and situations.

That's if I have any time in between growing our own potatoes and beetroot and looking after the goat and chickens we are likely to need to start keeping in the back garden in order to survive. We may also have to contemplate eating the cats, or at least sending them into the shed to catch their own supper from now on. They've brought us an assortment of frogs, caterpillars, birds of varying sizes and baby rats this year so I'm sure they can do it.
