Heroes & Villains: Week 4
My Villain this week is the snow we’ve endured lately. As much as I love formations of icicles, making snowmen and following my cat’s paw prints to see where he spends his time during the day you can have too much of a good thing and after 2 weeks enough is enough. It’s time to pack up your belongings Jack Frost and find another country to nip the nose and toes of.
Terrestrial television is pretty dire at the moment and is summed up with the dreary reality show, Splash! where z-celebrities compete in a diving competition led by Olympian, Tom Daley. However, a glimmer of hope (my choice of Hero this week) appears at 9pm on Sunday with BBC’s drama series, ‘Ripper Street’ where the Whitechapel police fight to bring law to the lawless. Recommended weekend viewing.
Unfortunately my Villain this week is Chelski’s Eden Hazard. The incident in this week’s Capital One Cup, has over shone Swansea City immense effort and left Chelsea without a Hazard. Bad day to be a blues fan.
The snow this week has caused utter chaos. If it hadn’t been for my trustee side-kick, my poor clio would have been left in the wilderness… So my Hero this week is my snow shovel. Journeying into the unknown it was ready for action when called upon. Until next year… Adios amigo!
My Hero this week is the snow we’ve been having. Yes it’s a pain. Yes it means you can’t do everything you want to do. Does it really matter? No. We don’t get much snow, so we should enjoy it whilst we can. Get the sledge out, have some fun and enjoy a break from the rain.
My Villain this week isn’t the snow, but it is snow related. I hate the way this country overreacts to the smallest flurry of snow. Supermarkets experience shoppers panic buying bread, milk and horse burgers, fearing that we may all be cut off from the world for weeks on end. The reality is that we just have to wrap up warm and walk to our local shop. No big fuss.
