You know the news is depressing…

…when you turn off the breakfast coverage on BBC24, and turn over to UK History, which is showing The Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher. Yuppies, the glory of greed, selling off the family silver in the name of privatisation, Jeffrey Archer with his fragrant wife post-allegations (but pre-perjury verdict), “Tell Sid”, the 1987 election, the poll tax, clause 28, and Michael Howard in a position of power – all these things are making me feel less down than today’s news.

In other news (since hasn’t posted on the subject), we’ve put an offer on a house in Southampton which has been accepted, and the cat has started on her old tricks again and has crapped on the dining room floor twice before topping it with her signature piece by pissing on our bed.
