For some reason I’m totally out of things to say.
This is strange because I’m sure I have a list of subjects somewhere. I also have 15 part written drafts. All they need is a blogger with a work ethic to finish them off.
I say “finish them off” but in at least two cases all I have is a title. Two of the others are just pictures.
Pondering, Polishing and Plagiarising, for instance, has been waiting for 300 finely crafted words since 4th April 2016. Unfortunately, as I like the title so much, I haven’t felt any of my attempts have been good enough.
Cooking with Harissa has only been ready since June this year. I wrote it after using harissa for the first time. I used it as a marinade for chicken and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos and I haven’t made it again (I found an easier recipe I preferred). This is a shame, as I was going to pretend that Harissa was a celebrity chef from North Africa.
There are also several I’ve decided are too contentious.
British Values is one of them. There are, it seems, four core values that we should be ramming down the throats of school children. This becomes five when they put them on a poster depicting a hand, thus illustrating another core British value – messing about with education. Don’t get me started.
There are others, but they are too contentious even to blog about why I won’t blog about them.
That’s just the highlights – others are in limbo because they are boring – I have saved you from them.
Go for it, Simon! I like a bit of contentiousness.
The British values post sounds very interesting to me as I have lately been wondering what the heck has happened to American values. Quercus, it has been a long two years.
Is it only two? It seems longer.
See what you can do when you try
I have several drafts that I haven’t finished, too. Like you, even some with just a title…
It’s an occupational hazard of blogging I suppose. 🙂
There are no such things as British values of course. There are just values to which decent human beings subscribe and we can only hope that enough British are to be found among that category to make our country worth living in.
If you are going to be contentious about education, lay on Macduff!
It would be nice to think there were plenty of decent people about.
