As I'm sure any readers in the UK will know, today is Comic Relief (a day to raise funds for charity - particularly for causes in Africa) and I've been thinking just how lucky I am. I sometimes worry about little things when there are people with much bigger problems in the world.
I actually heard a 13 year old say that he was annoyed that Comic Relief was on TV all night and he couldn't watch the programmes he usually viewed on a Friday night. I reminded him that there are children in Africa who have never even seen a TV and what they worry about is not being able to eat or get drinking water - and surely he could survive without TV for one night. I told him to watch Comic Relief to see what I meant, but it was like talking to a brick wall.
Anyways, I usually buy a comic relief t-shirt...this is my William Shakespeare version designed by Vivienne Westwood and I shall be buying The Beatles designed by Stella McCartney one from TKMaxx (here's the link). The money is donated to the charity.
Happy Friday and I'm sure like me, you'll be laughing and crying tonight.
