‘Emmerdale and EastEnders need to clean up their act – they’re too depressed’ – Val Savage

blank

The news from abroad is scary and bleak and there’s big news at home that affects all of us deeply: a cup of cold tea will soon cost ten bucks. Ten. Board.

The price of cod has skyrocketed 75%, the price of my favorite mushy bean has doubled, and energy prices mean discerning bosses have to step up fees. I remember paying every penny for scraps of paper wrapped in newspaper, it’s still the best way fries have ever been served.

French fries are always a hot, delicious, and inexpensive addition. I wouldn’t pay ten pounds in principle. But when a warm waft of vine makes my stomach rumble, all possible excuses go up in smoke.

When my eye doctor agreed to come see me because my legs are so bad these days, I thought he must be a decent man.

When I asked if I could wear a robe when he visited and he said, “You can wear whatever you like,” my thoughts were confirmed.

Then he asked the question I always dreaded: “Because of your name, I have to ask: is your son Robbie Savage?”

I know our Rob looks like Marmite so my heart sinks when asked in case the conversation goes awry. But the ophthalmologist says he loves our Rob.

It was a relief.

Because I can call our Rob and scream hellfire at him.

But if anyone else says anything about him, they’ll take my walking stick where the sun doesn’t shine.

Help marathon man Paul…he’s a hoodie two pairs of shoes

The cost of being a child is on the roof and we are all scared of rising energy bills, but even when people are struggling, they still contribute to the organization from benevolent.

That is what makes our country so great.

I choked up this week when my eldest son Jonathan told me Paul Pryce, his best friend for decades, was running the Manchester Marathon in April to raise money for a good cause.

Half of the money will go to the Glyndwr section of Wrexham Maelor Hospital in memory of Paul’s late father Cyril. And the other half will go to Alzheimer’s Cymru as a tribute to my late husband Colin.

Paul has run up the mountains and even through Storm Eunice to train, and the thought of him pushing himself to the limit in his first marathon for Cyril and Col means the world.

Seeing him and Jonathan wearing hoodies with their late father’s print filled me, not only with feelings of missing Col but also knowing how proud their dad would be.

I’d be grateful if you’d sponsor Paul by following this cool link: justgiving.com/crowdfunding/our-2-dads

I’m sorry to hear that Oti Mabuse has left the serious program for the dance.

I love how she inspired Bill Bailey in the comics.

But one thing we’ve learned is that the show is so great,
we soon get to know and love the newcomers.

And the good news is that the lovely Amy Dowden is still in it – she’s my all-time favorite.

Industrial History Acknowledgers

My father and his father, my Taid, worked for decades at the Brymbo Steel Mill in Wrexham.

Open from 1796 to 1990, it fueled Britain’s Industrial Revolution and fed countless families in the area.

Dad, who worked at the cram school, worked overtime to help pay for my grammar school uniform.

And sometimes my mother, perhaps out of concern for my father, would walk to the steel works and sit in the early morning.
bank for a few hours just look at it.

When the steel works closed, more than 1,200 jobs were lost and hearts were broken.

So I applaud the Foundation for British History’s commitment to awarding grants to help protect and recognize the nation’s working-class heritage that truly helped make Britain great.

Old steelworks and mines may not be as eye-catching as castles and mansions, but they make more sense to most of us.

We don’t need new houses built on old industrial sites.

We need to remember where our family went before and worked hard to build and maintain the country.

The reality of war is a scary prospect

My parents listened to every news report about the Cuban Missile Crisis in silence.

I realize it’s important, but I’m so absorbed in shopping and dancing that it doesn’t stay in my mind for long.

Now, age and maturity mean I understand their fears. And I feel it when I listen to the latest news from Russia every night.

Although I am almost too scared to hear the news, I am always ready to follow to stay updated on world affairs whenever possible.

In one report, ordinary people in Russia were interviewed about their thoughts on the prospect of war. One woman said: “I worry about how many husbands, fathers and sons will be lost.”

And that is the reality of conflict. Those in big offices threatening war will be behind big desks as our young soldiers are sent out to fight their battles.

No one in their mind really wanted that to happen.

I like soap to clean their act







‘I fell in love with Emmerdale back when the stories revolved around Joe Sudgen and his sheep farm. It’s soothing, calming and addictive’

Emmerdale and EastEnders will both air four times a week at 7:30 p.m.

And I wonder, in the ranking war, do they add more sex and violence to the plots? That’s what turned me off.

I love Emmerdale back when the stories revolved around Joe Sudgen and his sheep farm. It’s gentle, soothing, and addictive.

But now the story has gone too far, depressingly dark and the characters just screaming and shouting at each other.

When you’re at a certain age, TV can be a lifesaver and I see it as a mood lifter.

So while Emmerdale and EastEnders battle it out, I’ll be happy to watch other channels.
