Today I almost nominated myself as the Friday Fuckwit for having an awesomely annoying worry attack when someone I normally hear from every day was conspicuously absent. Helped not by the fact that I was rather RUDE to him last night and thought he'd had a tanty and blacklisted me from his phone and email when in fact, while I was madly emailing and messaging sycophantic apologies, he was sunning himself and visiting friends/family and had left his phone at home to charge. Felt like a total nagging neuropus when he finally called and just told me to 'Relax Helen! Its all good!"
Anyhoo . .you've probably heard of this but the phrase "What posessed them?" comes to mind:
Beachgoers got a shock when they saw a donkey soaring in the blue skies over the balmy beaches on the Sea of Azov in southern Russia last week.
Attached to a parachute, the animal screamed in fear as it circled over holidaymakers who were sunbathing on a beach in the Cossack village of Golubitskaya in the Krasnodar region.
A regional police spokeswoman says the donkey ended up in the skies as a result of an impromptu advertising campaign by several Russian entrepreneurs to attract beachgoers to their private beach.
Instead they attracted the attention of regional police who learned of the flying donkey earlier this week and launched a probe.
"The donkey screamed and children cried," regional police spokeswoman Larisa Tuchkova said.
"No-one had the brains to call police."
Instead people reached for their cameras and bombarded a local newspaper with phone calls.
"It was put up so high into the sky that the children on the beach cried and asked their parents: 'Why did they tie a doggy to a parachute?'" the newspaper Taman wrote this week.
"The donkey landed in an atrocious manner: it was dragged several metres along the water, after which the animal was pulled out half-alive onto the shore."
After a vet check, the donkey was deemed healthy if not a little traumatised.
It's the weekend down under and I've finally got over my elevated blood pressure, teary outburst and annoying worrying, (yes I'm a total fretter) and arrived home tonight to a gorgeous gift from Mim . . thank you so much. You and kj are so good to me, I really don't deserve it. And sorry 'Keanu', I'm a worry wort, you were right, I was wrong and I'm glad you forgave me. I'm a git. I should have had more faith in our friendship.
Have a great weekend everybody.
