At the risk of it seeming like I'm copying what's written in SA again, (see last post and Darren Stark/Todd Macdonald stuff) bloody hell how good was Neighbours last night??! The final street showdown of the episode was fantastic, not just for a soap, but for telly full stop. And yet another cracker on today's installment. Father Tom declaring his love for Susan!! About bloody time. The twists and turns which always seem to arise in Soapland whenever a Catholic priest is around are amazing. Take the whole Catholic-priest-shags-fiance-of-brother plot in that so-serious and dramatic of soaps, Sunset Beach. Izzy as a character is brill too. They make you hate her but feel for her at the same time. Wish my life was as interesting as those of those Good Neighbours. But no! No Neighbours for two weeks because of the bloody Olympics. Only just recovering from the depravation of the Wimbledon days. As if I'm going to watch the Olympics. Where are the sex scandals there? Actually, if you look hard enough, I'm sure a few could be dug up. Is it wrong of me to say that? Not the sex scandal stuff, but having no intention of watching the Olympics. Does it mean I'm uncultured, or just not interest in sports. Mind you, they play tennis in the Olympics don't they? Maybe if Andy Roddick plays, it might be a different story. We'll have to see.

Back to the real world, I'm sure regular readers (are there actually any of you?If so, stand up, be counted, and post a comment) are aware that I work in a day nursery and its holiday club for older kids. I'm telling you, the trouble and strife that's going on there at the moment. Its always had just the one manager, but a couple of months ago the owner employed her sister as another manager, so there are now two managers. I knew right from the start that it wouldn't work, but as I'm only there in my uni holidays I knew it wouldn't really affect me. But bloody hell, talk about too many chefs spoil the broth. I think it must be something about it being an all female environment, but the bitching thats going on. Its almost like being in my very own soap, but owing to the all female environment thing, there is a distinct lack of sex scandals going on. Probably for the best, considering that its a nursery.

Speaking of nurseries and scandals, that nurseries exposed thing that was on last night was awful. The thought that anyone could treat children like that who are supposed to be employed in childcare is terrible. Awful people.

Lighter note: one week then I'm on holiday! Can't wait!

    Hey, already had a read of your blog, quite fun
    (Not too many people into Welsh History eh?). Funny reading Blogs from people that you know of but never really got to know... get me? As mentioned in my recent post '...Wooden Spoon', a load of Welsh people came into the pub, they were all from Colwyn Bay actually. They'd come over for a wedding in Vancouver and stayed for a while, same as my little self!

    I don't really watch the soaps now (bar Hollyoaks but that's PG porn lol) but Neighbours could always pull things like this off as the actings so much better than H&A.
