Kids, Photos and Quiz's....
In my little mind there has been one or two posts wandering around. Tonight, after a day at the museum, well half day, the mind is dead. Lots of kids full of energy, some more than enough for a top level football team, and mum's looking forward to next week when the schools reopen and the kids are locked in. I mentioned this to one, rather well proportioned mum who has a child who possibly has AHHD, or is it RSPCA I canny mind, and she began to dance! I suspect next week, around about Wednesday in these parts, many mum's and dad's will be rejoicing in the quiet as the little darlings have been locked up. Pray for the teachers who may see things differently!
The weather has become normal in recent days, you can tell this by the way I am wearing two pullovers, a jacket and my overcoat as I write. I suspect it will be hot again tomorrow. This I have combined with laziness and ventured out only when required and in the mood, so I have not gone out. This means no photos and indeed nothing to show. Even today in between the kids, mum's and other distractions (I will hide that phone one day) I usually look for photos round about but nothing attracted and the weather was gray most of the day. Next week, if energy allows, I will go out as places will be empty with kids and parents no longer on the streets. Where is that bus pass?
Being slow of mind these past few days meant I have become obsessed with quiz shows. Even drivel like 'Tipping Point' has filled the screen, followed immediately by 'The Chase.' This features individuals competing against the clock and then against a clever quiz professional and is very well compared by Bradley Walsh who adds a touch of humour and keeps the show rolling. These offer questions almost low enough to enable me to answer them. Many refer to TV and media of the day which leave me cold but others are answerable. However sitting here full of pizza makes it easy to answer questions but had I to answer them within seconds in front of a camera I may go the way one lass did recently and fail to get one right and leave with nothing, nerves played a part here.
However that is finished and now I am off to watch 'Eggheads' another version of quizzing that I like, though if Jeremy Vine was replaced it would not be a loss, and here we have both individual and team offerings. We also get time to consider our answers, now that I like.
