The sun never sets on the British Empire ....... Much.
There is an old saying ‘The sun never sets on the
British Empire’, this is not the
original saying it was changed a long time ago for very good reasons but to no
avail. As we all know today is the 4th July or Independence day in
the USA, the day us British thought to ourselves you can have just too many McDonald's
and KFC’s; OK then, off you go but no victimizing those nice Red Indians or
Buffalo. And no shooting rockets at the
Up to that point the British Empire had been huge almost every country in the world, ok not really Canada they were always a bit French and not Tibet, their leader was a Llama and they say Mmmmmmmmm a lot so us British thought we would leave them alone.
Then with time every country left saying “YAH SUSKS BOO we don’t like YOU” leaving just Britain and Australia, and the Australians only stay so they can beat us at cricket and because they know the Queen is too old now to go there.
This brings us back to today and that old saying ‘The sun never sets on the British Empire’ you see the original saying was ‘The rain never stops in the
Empire’. But you see that saying is as valid today as it was way
back; only the British Empire really only consists of Britain so it now means that somewhere in
is always wet. So to commemorate Independence Day, the 4th July it has rained
almost all day here, so all I can say is….. Happy Birthday America, but would
you like some rain we have loads. Changing
the saying to ‘The sun never sets on the British Empire’ was a foolish attempt
to improve the weather in Britain
by the powers that be… Britain
On a different subject I have sawn some wood, drilled some holes and painted some wall, I had thought I was doing a great job of DIY until the headmaster said he did not want his desk cut in half, a three foot hole in the wall and what wall was left painted bright pink. I did explain that a man and a woman outside his office told me that it needed doing, but apparently they were George’s parents (from class 13TA) who was eaten by the goat the other day. Still it is almost the summer holidays so the headmaster can get a man in to paint his office grey again if he wants but I have told him the Ghost Writer will not approve.
Ooooooo and we picked our first raspberries today despite the rain.
There may be a few errors in my history of events but they are minor and have no overall effect on the outcome (it is still raining).....
