They Don’t Arf Make Me Larf

It was the Princess’ birthday on Wednesday, so I took a day off to help her celebrate but she went to sleep in the garden – post-lunch. There was no posh lunch in beautiful setting this year or family gathering so I had prepared Prawns sautéed in garlic and chilli, served on a bed of leaves with baby plum tomatoes and garlic bread. It was requested. 😉

So I got to thinking about the present Dominic Cummings situation. If you’re not aware who he is, feel blessed, he’s basically a twat. Anyway, I abolished all political alliance’s in favour of abstention some time ago, so this isn’t a political rant. Roughly 5 weeks ago the general public was hailing Boris Johnson as the new Churchill, when he was ill they wanted to go out onto their doorsteps and ‘Clap for Boris’.

I recall at the time thinking Oh dear. I looked into the future and a scene from a Frankenstein movie-obsessed me. The same general public, outside number 10, pitchforks and scythes in hand, calling for blood.

Yesterday, I was waiting for YouTube to load. Yes, I’m still doing Adrienne and her Yoga. I caught a teensy weensy bit of news. Seventy-one per cent of the British public disagree with Boris over his handling of the Cummings affair.

See, I told you, pitchfork and scythe at the ready! What I find really amazing though, is this seventy-one per cent? Surely to get a percentage they need to ask one hundred per cent of the people? 

No one asked me, nor did they ask anyone I know! Did they ask you?

They don’t arf make me larf! 

Stay safe my friends and be nice to one another xxx

    Prawns on a bed of leaves? Prawns with garlic & chilis sound good but, leaves? What tree are you munching on? LOL!

    I haven’t a clue who Cummings is or what he’s done. I’m still trying to figure out why Boris doesn’t own a comb.

    I have heard of the Neil Ferguson, his rules and his being seen ignoring said rules to see a married lover???

    What is “they don’t arf make me larf?” Arf as in “woof” like a dog? Larf? I’m so confused…

    • Oh, bless… salad leaves (poor people call it lettuce 😂) Cummings is just plain rude, so you’re better off without him. I haven’t heard of Ferguson. He sounds like a bit of a ‘lad’.
      Just for you;
      They Don’t Half Make me Laugh
      I think it’s a Cockney saying?
      Do you think Boris believes his hair makes him look sexy or is he just slovenly? I reckon he does it so women will want to mother him and we know where that leads! 😉😂

        Two countries separated by a common language…*sigh*

        Ah. Yes. Salad. Thank you. I half thought maybe it was a cultural/visual thing where the leaves were just decoration. And to further muddy the waters, there is prawn (shrimp) salad! 🦐🍤

        I vaguely recall that saying. I was scratching my head over ‘arf’ & ‘larf’. I’m thinking “They make him wanna bark & then barf? Is ‘larf’ a Brit term for spewing?” 🤔🤨

        Boris, to me, looks like Trump’s younger brother…both have f***** up hair.

      • I don’t want to sound critical here and I’ve not seen Mr Ferguson’s concubine but it appears from his portrait on Wiki that he could possibly be punching above his weight? 😂 As for Donald and Boris is it possible it’s not only their hair which is f***** up 😉

    Now that made me crave for Prawns too! And also, I recently followed Adrienne — gotta be my opening YT vid since today haha. For how long have you been doing yoga/meditation though?

    • In that case my work here is done 😀 I only started Yoga this year, partly due to an Achilles injury and partly due to the lockdown. I always thought I would find it too ‘slow’ after running/gym most of my life and kickboxing when I was younger. I wished I had started earlier but hey ho. I am now addicted sometimes I do two lessons a day lol. Thank you for your comment. 😀
