Today was the first in what feels like forever that neither my husband nor I had the news on. It’s Bank Holiday Monday, neither of us are working and we’re both thoroughly sick fed up with nothing but Brexit, Trump, violent weather storms and violent mass shootings on the news. So we decided to switch off from it all, and spent a relaxing morning and much of the afternoon completely out of the media loop, enjoying the break from all that sickening stressy stuff.

Anyway, not too long ago I picked up my laptop to surf a little bit before making dinner, only to find out – from a blogger in America, would you believe – that Harry and Meghan have had their baby boy today and the news has been full of excitement and happiness instead of endless negativity and heartache. And I completely missed it!

The birth of a new baby is always lovely to hear about, so it’s been so nice to have something good happen in the news at last. Sending huge congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of their beautiful son, and thank you both so much for giving me something positively perfect to smile about today 🙂

  1. Yeah, but the last I checked the lead article on the BBC web site was bad news with the royal baby story #2 (I hate to say it, but I’m serious…). I do try to have news free days, and I tend to stay away from the TV when ever possible, which in my house is blaring news all day, but I often hit the news on the Internet. Yeah, too much depressing happening in the world. We do need good news like babies being born, to brighten our days. It is funny that you stayed away from the news on a day when there was good news at the top of the headline, at least for a little while.


  2. The negativity in the media can be so contagious, even if it’s just left on as background noise. I try to avoid it, but it’s tough because it’s also important to be informed. Congrats to the Duke and Duchess!!
