While watching the news the other day it occured to me that we had entered a different form of "crunch", one where optimism was in as short supply as new jobs in the banking world.
Just the other week on the BBC’s Bad Breakfast Show they had a slot where they were discussing the wonderfully alliteratively named credit crunch and wondering how parents should be discussing this issue with their children. Dear reader, I swore. I used the f-word. And then chucked my crunchy nut cornflakes at the screen. Can I just say milk on LCD – not a good idea? Cleaning aside (two days later. Long story. Don’t ask), it was a cathartic moment.
Now I watch Everybody Loved Raymond in the morning before going to work - while eating porridge. Healthy mind, healthy body. If you haven’t watched ELR, its a gem of a programme. Sends me off to work with a smile on my face.
