Why this should be, I’m not sure. Post holiday depression perhaps, although we’ve been back for over a month, or maybe it’s just the cold and bleak weather that is getting me down. Or is life just not funny any more?
I look around and it seems that the world has gone beyond parody. To give an example, a neighbouring council is putting on the usual Christmas pantomime with local kids providing the cute chorus.
These productions used to rely on their mums to work backstage to make sure the youngsters got into the right costume on time, but apparently this isn’t allowed now because the mums haven’t been CRB checked. But it is okay for a complete stranger with the right bit of paper to do the job. Madness.
But it did make me wonder if professional footballers have had their records checked by the police to be allowed to hold the hands of the little boy and girl mascots. I bet they don’t.
Anyway, I will attempt to shake off this lethargy and as you can see above, I’m taking my All-Blog to make me more regular.
