January….. in a Nutshell

Finally January ended, Do you guys also think that January is the longest month of the year? It just doesnt end….

My year goes abit like this January, January, January, January, February, March, Aprilember, Novemeber, December… and then its all over, and then the dreaded month of January hits us again.

Well back to the blog, before I get carried away, heres whats been happening….in a nutshell.

1. Royal Tea with Jam

My obsession with the Royals. The Queen kicked Harrys ass, and threw him off the Royal Title (You go Girlfriend….eh Your Royal Highness). She did well. Im happy with the outcome. Harry and Meghan are now in Canada trying to live a bittersweet life, whilst suing every media outlet that comes in their way (got to earn a living somehow). A job would be a fine idea Harry? No? What ones of them I hear you say? ….Joking. I love them. And I really cant wait to see them in their new ‘Celebrity lifestyle’ because theirs not too many of them around is their?

2. Australian Fires

Parts of Australia are still burning, and it doesn’t seem to be getting better. The Death Toll sitting at 33, with more than 2000 homes lost and thousands of wildlife. My thoughts and prayers always with you all.

3. Brexit

Is it happening? Yes it is ! Yes it already happened….Yesterday….Brexit is done….. Whats happened? Brexit! Brexit! ….. OK!. So…Urm whats happened? here is a breakdown of a few changes so far,

Nothing. Its going to take a couple of months for all negotiations to be put in place.

4. Kobe Bryant

NBA Superstar Kobe Bryant dies in a helicopter accident at the age of 41 along with his daughter. Tragic news that has affected a lot of people around the world from celebrities to supporters. May your soul rest in Peace and May God make it easy on those left behind

Whilst we are at it, Can we also pray for the people in Palestine, losing their lives daily in an unjust system, the Rohingya’s in Burma, The Uyghur Muslims, The Syrians, Afghanistan, Australia, Somalia…. and so many more.

Every Life Matters!

5. President Trump

Can we get through a day without mentioning this eejits name? Nope. We are stuck for life. The Assasinantion of Qasem Soleimani being the very first thing he ‘assigned’ in the new year, and now he has a new ‘Peace Deal’ which he calls the ‘Deal of the Century’ for the Palestinians living in PALESTINE- which strips them of their rights, their land, their country and even their existence. How is this a Deal? Mr President? Take a note from Harry and Meghan and LEAVE!! Preferably to another Planet!

Here are the details https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-51299145

6. CoronaVirus

Called the Wuhan Corona Virus- because it has originated in the city of Wuhan in China. Although not the first of the Corona Viruses (2002 in China, and 2013 in Saudi Arabia). The difference this time is that this virus is not only passed from animal to human- but it can also be passed from human to human, therefore it’s harder to contain.

Symptoms start off as flu like symptoms and later into severe pneumonia type symptoms.

Treatment- there is none, because we are still in the stages or trying to find out where it’s coming from! Indication is saying ‘bats’ as Chinese eat bats, but yet not fully confirmed.

Severity– UK have now upped the condition from low to moderate indicating that we may have issues. 2 cases have been found in the Uk and they are in isolation at the moment. However we have also had a plane full of passengers come from Wuhan, and All passengers regardless of condition will be held in quarantine for 14 days. So procedures are in place.

Deaths: so far 250 deaths have been confirmed, and 12,000 infected people. though there is suggestions that rates may be higher.

Lived updates can be found on: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/01/world/asia/coronavirus-china.html

7. Katie Hopkins

And now I will end with something abit more light hearted. Watch Katie Hopkins pick up her award for ‘CUNT’ of the year. This women flew all the way to Prague to accept this very ‘Prestigious’ and ‘One of a kind’ award.

Youtuber Josh Pieters probably pulled the best Prank of the year and we are just finished January guys! This is huge.

Since Harrys no longer Prince can I suggest for Josh to take the position? I think I will be starting a petition soon. Watch this space

Watch (and laugh at )Katies Humiliating Awards ceremony here:https://www.dailydot.com/irl/youtube-katie-hopkins-award-prank/

So thats January…. in a nutshell. If anyone asks you ‘Whats new?’ dont say ‘Nothing’ -you have 7 things to talk about. Thank me later.

Now back to my Dubai blog

Hope you guys enjoyed the read

Megxit

So how did 2020 start?

Well we have had to finally accept that Boris Johnson is our Prime minister. (That’s karma for laughing at America when Trump was elected. Karma has a way of kicking you in the balls).

Boris Johnson

Now we will be heading straight into Brexit (although I voted Remain, the way the whole process has gone on, and for so long, its been draining. So its just nice to know that something is happening! Finally, we know where we stand. Kind of. ) and now we will see how much of an impact it’ll have on us.

Also we are coming to terms that our beloved NHS may be sold off in the near future, its all very daunting and scary.

Worldwide 2020 has brought us the Tragic news in Australia with the fires. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this hard time.

The mass ethnic cleansing of the Uyghur muslims in China are finally getting some air time, although mostly on social media, the International stations are still widley ignoring them, as are the national. But its nice to see Celebrities voicing their concerns and raising awareness. (Although they are getting heavily critisised for it! Freedom of speech only applies for some causes!)

Then the dreaded President Trump whilst playing golf decided on the assasination of the Iranian General Qassem Suleimani and now their are talks of possible WW3. (Seriously the amount of netflix series I watch I can so picture this in my head!! talking of netflix and presidents… you guys watched Scandal? Fitz for President next please!… Oh Fitz!)

Back to the UK, Prince Phillip health is in the air, constantly in and out of hospital. Tensions rising,

And whilst we all come to terms with all of this…….. “Megxit”

And we are only on the 2nd week of January.

Right I havent really got political up to date with my posts, because sometimes im afraid to voice my opinion, because politics is very broad and very vast and everyone has an opinion of their own and I dont want to be judged for it. I think as a blogger, you have to be very careful what you say, it can be misinterpreted all too easily.

So I have decided to pick on the things which I believe to be light hearted politics… (I think(biting nails))

So lets get back to ‘Megxit’

I had decided 2020 was MY Year!! I’m ready to make it MY Decade of Decades….. but I guess so many other people have decided the same. All this news, just two weeks in……Its going to be a great year!

But seriously?? I’m not going to say could it get worse? Seriously not going to say it…. But could it?

This whole ‘Megxit’ situation has got me really reeled up. I’m a big fan of Harry and Meghan. Huge fan. I’m a big fan of everything Royal. I love the Royal family. I love William and Kate. I love the Queen. I love Britain. I believe they are mine. They belong to us. They belong to me. And because I watch The Crown on netflix (promise you netflix are not paying me for this post, though it would be nice!) I feel like I know them, they are my family, they are my friends. I laugh when they laugh, I cry for them, I Hurt for them. I Follow them on Social media, in the papers, in everything. I STALK the Royal Family. (There I said it, im obsessed- abit like Joe on YOU (netflix again))

So Im going through an emotional rollercoaster at the moment. Initially the post they sent out stating they are ‘stepping down’ gave me Joy. Who wants to be in an institute like that, its so difficult, ( Ive seen how much the Queen went through on the Crown. Its so tough!) Good on them for wanting out…….But now Im not so sure….

Meghan has been bullied by the media, theres no doubt about that, but then so has every member of the Royal family at one point. They are in the public eye, they will be scrutinised, its been that way for years. In exactly the same way Meghan was scrutinised as an actress. Its a celebrity culture. Its a tabloid culture. Its a press culture. She married a Prince! What was she expecting?

Shes not the first to be bullied, Sarah Ferguson (Prince Andrews ex-wife) because of her weight was named ‘Duchess of Pork’. Kate Middleton was accused of doing nothing more that just having babies on top of babies, and also accused of lavishly spending tax payers money when she first came into the royal family on outfits. And how about Camilla- still to this day she is bullied.

Im not saying its right to be bullied. NOT AT ALL. I just dont think that by running away it will stop the bullying, if anything they probably have made it worse for themselves. They will be more in the press then ever before. (This time without the aide and security of the Royal Family so anything can and will be published) especially if Meghan goes back to her career ( You would think that she’d be use to it by now? though I would love for her to be back on suits! (Netflix again!))

Now something else that troubled me, the fact that they made this statement without the Royal family knowing. (urm…. guys…. what were you thinking!!!???) they already have the media after them, and they throw themselves to the sharks! (Was this like a dumb and dumber moment!). Im not a royal but that hurt me!! Harry (no longer Prince!) knows exactly how the system works, why the hell??? …..Im in disbelief! Is this his first “Im going to be independent” move? because he already failed. Big time.

And now they want to be ‘Financially Independent’ whilst keeping the Royal Sussex name, but stepping down……thats abit like Kylie Jenner stating that she is ‘SELF MADE’. Ugh. to Celebrity Culture.

Wow. reading that back. I can feel my tone change. Im really hurt!

In all honesty if they wanted to be free, they deserve to be, but not the way they did it. The Queen is 93 years old! (same as my granni) Prince Phillip health is all over the place, and they throw this on her! Its such a disrespect on the family and the Monarchy. I am so so so dissapointed. Especially after the amount the Royal Family did to invite Meghan into the family. The grand wedding, Prince Charles stepping in to walk her in, the Queens gift of the ‘Sussex’ title. They went above and beyond -evan though every step of the way they were being traumatised by the media, yet we never heard a complaint off them, not about Meghan or about the media. They took it in their grace and continued, knowing its a phase they will need to overcome. If only Meghan and Harry did the same.

The other thing that troubles me is- they want to be out of the ‘limelight’ as per se. They dont like the media attention, yet Meghan has signed a million pound contract with Disney for a voiceover? Urm …..hyprocricy at its best.

It seems to me that only if the attention is on Meghan, then the attention is valid .

Phew, I got passionate there. Didnt realise I was that protective of the Royal family either.

Well to end I Cant wait for The Crown season 7- I wonder if Meghan will play herself (hehe)

Let me know how you all feel about this, would love to hear your thoughts

Love and Regards
