Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “long.” Use the word “long,” any definition. Enjoy!
A week is a long time in politics so the saying goes and this week feels like we’ve crammed years into it, especially now the long knives have started coming out too. It’s going to be a long time before some sense and stability is resumed.
We are definitely in the middle of a political storm here in the UK and although I long for it to be over as I don’t like it when things are unsettled, it has made me take more notice of what’s going on. I had no idea who several of the leadership contenders for the Conservative party were a few days ago but I’m better informed now. Although of course most of that is from what I could find online or in the newspaper so I could be hopelessly wrong. Time will tell.
We took a long road yesterday to visit our future daughter-in-law to sort out an ill-fitting suit bought for my husband to wear at the forthcoming wedding. The M1 motorway (any motorway come to that) is a boring drive. But necessary. Fortunately sorting out the suit did not take long neither did the purchase of my wedding outfit. I surprised myself at my decisiveness. I hope I’m not a long time regretting it.
