Hmmm: so apparently there is a bit of a Thing going on in Birmingham city centre at the moment. Police received 'intelligence', evacuated a few areas, found a suspect package on a bus, evacuated more areas, carried out a controlled explosion, and now everyone has been sent out of the city centre and no vehicles are allowed to move around within the inner ring road.

It's probably a lot of panic about nothing, and sitting here in Selly Park, we only knew about it because one of my cousins phoned to check my aunt (who is staying here this evening) was OK. Presumably all will be back to normal by tomorrow morning, but if not, it could be pretty tedious for guests trying to get to our party.

It's certainly already wrecked a lot of nights out - according to the editor of the Sunday Mercury, who was interviewed about it on BBC News 24, there were 30,000 people evacuated, which is quite normal for B'ham city centre on a Saturday night. One lots of wedding guests apparently congaed out of the evacuation zone, but the bride and groom themselves were, understandably, in tears.

Anyway, let's hope it is all just a storm in a tea-cup, and that it won't have any impact on tomorrow.

    Ciao caro.
    Ho ascoltato la canzone Domine Salvum Fac su youtube. Ripete la parola Domine due volte dopo che segue Salvum Fac e non capisco oltre. Ma mi sembra che il testo non corrisponda del tutto…

    I think just 'not being Trump' proved to be enough!

    Yes, that's it. Just having someone in charge who isn't actively making things worse for the world is a big relief.

    There are many, many doubts and worries. But still, there is an enormous rock of anguish that has been weighting on my soul since the first days after that monster's election which has now lifted.
