“Let me Entertain You”. So say the words from the Robbie William’s song of the same name. The same phrase is repeated no less than 20 times, but have we become besotted with being entertained rather than entertaining ourselves I wonder?
I must admit to having fallen foul of these words in the past years, coming home from work and sitting down in front of the TV and asking to be entertained. My husband and I have recently watched 20 episodes of The Crown in 1 week on Netflix, how sad is that? I must admit though, I learnt several things about Winston Churchill, government, Suez Crisis & The Royal Family that I did not know before. I never enjoyed history at school, so watching this series was like all the interesting things that they never taught you in history at school. Things such as the stroke that Churchill had, that was kept hidden, with the collusion of Fleet Street, which meant that my country was left ungoverned for a period of time, or at least ungoverned by a fully functioning PM. By I digress from the entertainment issue.
The more I read about the trek up Kilimanjaro, the more I realsie that there will be little time to need to be entertained, but I am so looking forward to the dancing, as shown in my post 2 days ago. My entertainment between now and then is going to be training. Over the next few weeks I will share with you what my training is going to entail, as I go from couch potato to Kili climber.
Meanwhile listen to Robbie entertaining us:
