It is absolutely obscene. Last night there were teeny weeny "copycat" riots, so to speak, in south ruislip, very contained, but the news is saying the big superstores down there were looted- I knew something was happening, as I was lying in bed last night, I heard a million police sirens.
Hayes- where my Grandma lives, has been hit lightly, and I heard of discord in Harrow- all I'm saying is, if they take primark, I will loose it.- Some of us can only afford to spend £4 on shoes.
It's definitely livened up the news this weekend, so far today the news on the grapevine in Ruislip is that there are people trying to incite some sort of riot tonight, but to be honest, I'm not really worried, Dad just had someone in to fix our house alarm after it went off at 3am and scared the bejeesus out of all of us last night- and Ruislip's really quite out of the way.
But it's made for a sort of bank holiday feeling today- shops in the high street have stayed shut and Dad's working from home.
Anyway, enough of the pound land looters, which I suspect to be the raging force behind this whole charade- We had thunder, lightening and a flood of rain this weekend, I love it, it felt just like winter, which in my opinion, is always a good thing.
I abused the knowledge of where Mutti hid the hot chocolate, and brought my quilt down to the sofa to drive my mama crazy for a few hours.
Mama Stimpson and her girlie's really are best friends, sure she won't let me get my nose pierced, the reason I don't go and do it anyway, is because I know it would upset her, and that's just not high on my list of priorities- we enjoy speaking whale to each other and styling each others hair as jedward-esque as possible.
We have fun.
So, consider this my take on the local news- who else had a more interesting weekend?
