Consequently I am obliged to be indoors far more than I ever was, or of course would prefer to be, so I watch TV when there is a programme which appeals to me.

However, certain idiotic adverts have me totally bemused as it’s far from clear what they could possibly be attempting to advertise. And what on earth, too, is the point of the many peculiar adverts where adults take on the voices of children?

And is it necessary for the adverts ‘pushing’ funeral arrangements to be included so often? Surely most people with a modicum of common sense are more than capable of sorting out their funeral arrangements and the finance?

I guess I am not alone in all this.

I also cannot resist the temptation to embark on the subject of so many young people sticking the word “like” into the conversation at every opportunity when absolutely unnecessary. Why?

It seems to be a comparatively recent habit which has taken over somewhat.
