I don't have a clue, unfortunately. My first thought was Cranberries, but they aren't so popular to get this achievement.

I never liked her, I listened to some of her speeches when she was German defence minister. She was promoting NATO as a democratic alliance. As far as I remember one person in the room told her «excuse me, NATO is a military alliance».

I don't think she is a right choice for EU Commission President at all.

I was always wondering why they put a remainder in charge of Brexit instead of Boris.

Why would she want to make her mom nervous? To make sure her mom missed her and loves her? Or just to get some attention? In any way, it is normal behaviour. To be honest — if kids ain't a bit cheeky — then there is somewhat wrong with them. Kids have cheeky personalities, that is to be expected.

Cranberries were much more popular around the world than this band, which is called Snow Patrol. Besides, Cranberries is not the 21st Century, their popularity falls more at the end of the 20th Century.

This is the song that officially has been played the most around the world in the 21st Century — Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. I bet you have heard it a few times, just don't know whose track it is.

We were celebrating my birthday again today, as a customer brought a pack of lovely Crispy Crème Doughnuts and wished me Happy Birthday. How very sweet. I shared them with my colleagues — I had the one with Nuttella filling in it and chocolate icing. Here they are — it is me in the background.

I got to go as well. Have to get up early tomorrow, it was supposed to be my youngest two's sports day today, but they rescheduled it for tomorrow due to heavy downpour in the morning. So — have to be up at the crack of dawn.

Just was looking through the forum, look at this thread https://www.politforums.net/internal/1563475886_... — noticed on the second picture of Putin in the start post — he is wearing Patek 5095 model Grand Complications. He has a good taste. That particular watch — the model has changed, and this particular model, which is from the beginning of 00s — well, it is gaining value — it is about £150,000 now second hand. https://www.chrono24.com/patekphilippe/grand-com...

Speak later).

Look, what is happening at the moment — no wonder the EU is clinging on to us for their dear life:

Britain's EU contribution rises by 20 per cent in year, as UK's booming economy props up Brussels' budget

Britain’s contribution to the EU has shot up by £2.6 billion per cent in the past 12 months, new Treasury figures show, as the UK’s growing economy was used to prop up Brussels' budget.
An «eye-popping» £15.5 billion was sent across the Channel in the year ending March 31, compared with £12.9 billion the year before — an increase of 20 per cent.
The extra money would be enough to put 50,000 more police officers on the streets or fund 81,000 social care beds.
Brexiteers said the increase was yet more evidence that Britain must leave the EU as soon as possible to stop taxpayers' money «pouring into bottomless EU coffers».

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/07/19/...

A lot of the times — I site this table here — well, it is out of date, we are a number one contributor to the EU budget now. It is f*cking crazy — these figures are well out of date:

Net contribution (or spend) by Country

Donor countries — billion Euros:
Страны доноры
Germany + € 14.31 bn
UK +€ 11.52 bn
France +€ 5.52 bn
Netherlands +€ 3.70 bn
Italy +€ 2.6 bn
Sweden +€ 2.2bn
Belgium +€ 1.39bn
Luxembourg +€ 0.94bn
Austria +€ 0.85bn
Denmark +€ 0.79bn
Finland +€ 0.49bn
Cypress +€ 0.02bn

Countries where the EU money is spent
Страны которые датируются из бюджета ЕС и наскол ько

Poland -€ 9.48bn
Czech Republic -€ 5.7bn
Romania -€ 5.16bn
Greece -€ 4.93bn
Hungary -€ 4.64bn
Spain -€ 4.53bn
Slovakia -€ 3.1bn
Bulgaria -€ 2.28bn
Portugal -€ 0.98bn
Latvia -€ 0.76bn
Slovenia -€ 0.58bn
Lithuania -€ 0.54bn
Ireland -€ 0.35bn
Malta -€ 0.32bn
Estonia -€ 0.24bn
Croatia -€ 0.23bn

NATO is a much more democratic arrangement than the EU. But — the EU members enjoy the protection of NATO without adequate contributions to the NATO's budget. Cause they want their own army.

How are you? Are you allright?


We had a sports day today at school. It was supposed to be yesterday, but was cancelled due to shitty weather. The sports day is on Wimbledon Common, Wimbledon Common is beautiful . I didn't take pics, as I was taking an active part in it, parents who look after groups of kids aren't allowed to take pics or even have their phones on. There was also Dads' race and Moms' race - I won Moms' race obviously. Daniel was dead proud of me. I said to him "Not so dumb now, am I? And also, keep in mind I was clever enough to marry your Dad." He said "Yeah, Mom - you got a point there." So funny.

I feel very nostalgic today, as next year will be my daughter's final year in primary and Daniel's 4th year and Alex's second year in secondary (secondary is also 6 years). There are 6 years of primary school here. This is the pic of my husband and Daniel at Daniel's first sports day - my husband is putting suntan lotion on him here. This was also on Wimbledon Common


Vicky was in year 3 then - the same age as Daniel now


I got lots of fantastic pics from this year's Alex's sports day - but can't post them - cause the uniform they wear - well, it will be clear what school he is at and I don't want to disclose that.


Sports day here happens in every school once a year - schools normally rent spaces on public stadiums or Commons - we are lucky to be near Wimbledon - right next to the famous tennis courts and athletic tracks. And they have all sorts of races, competitions, parents do too. And then there is this huge barbecue.

I'm fine, thanks. I don't know why I just slept all day long yesterday. I thought I'll just rest on the sofa for 30 minutes but woke up late in the evening. Probably, it's because I was tired after busy week.
