One seriously doubts they would. She's one of the world's most well-known and powerful leaders and has reigned for almost 60 years. She's been privy to every major event and decision.
Everyone loves him and wants to meet him and he loves to watch everyone going about their business. How have your dogs helped you cope with anxiety over the years? You definitely have an extra sense of support with a dog by your side. They are. Yes, true. I have three dogs and my youngest, who also happens to be the heaviest, is the most sensitive of them all.
It would be boring if everyone was the same. What do you think of the situation?
One of the suspected deaths linked to 'Love Island' relates to your friend Sophie, who was with you on the show in How big a part does social media play, emotionally? So that was the hard part. No, there was nothing.
They always said the support was there but they never offered it. So that was the hardest thing for a lot of us. I hope things will change. I hope the aftercare will get better. Maybe Cl I had high expectations for this book, and unfortunately they were not quite met.
Maybe Clegg has the same reputation that Americans bestowed upon most of our Vice Presidents and candidates in recent years Cheney, Palin, and even Biden. Unfortunately I read most of the book on the bus without a smartphone, so I couldn't look up every single reference as I came across it.
I did very much enjoy entries about the royal family's shennanigans and world politics or culture. For some reason, references to Camilla smoking- always funny. References to Prince Edward being gay- funny a couple of times but overplayed.
References to Prince Charles and plastic crowns-- always funny. References to Kate knitting- confusing but funny. References to Harry and Pippa- funny. I would be interested to see if the Queen publishes more diaries. I would probably try to check a second edition out of the library. I personally would like to see more coverage of the queen's family and less of politics, but I am probably in the minority, and as a proud citizen of "the colonies", I doubt I get a vote anyway.
Apr 22, BrokenTune rated it liked it Shelves: I came across this one when browsing for ebooks. OK, it's not literary fiction, it won't change your life, and - I am hoping - it is not a true depiction of the Royal family, but it did make me laugh out loud nearly all the way through.
Nov 02, Rickus Bookshelf rated it really liked it Shelves: A fun book that is worth reading. Full review over here: Quite unusual and sometimes funny account of a year and a half in the Quwen's of Twitter life. Witty and in a tone that sometimes made you wonder if it really wasn't the real Queen writing.
Feb 01, Lourdes Cambridge rated it it was amazing. It is Gin O' Clock Rolex Time Aug 29, Simon Taylor rated it really liked it. The book draws on many of the existing caricatures of the Royal Family and prominent politicians in the UK and abroad. The mood and spirit of Britain in is captured well, and there is a great mix of coverage. It captures incidentals that would otherwise have been forgotten. The writing is sharp and witty, though towards the latter part there are huge chunks of months with no entries and my biggest criticism is that the author tweeter?
He or she rushes the end by giving oneself the rest of the month off and generally putting in less effort which is a shame. A little more time and care could have ended the book as strongly as it began. Although many famous figures are lampooned, the humour is never cruel or nasty, but rather an affectionate celebration of British eccentricity.
Review Taken From The Pewter Wolf While sipping her drink of gin and tonic minus the tonic , The Queen [of Twitter] decided to reveal her diaries and shows us how, quietly, she is ruling the world while trying to keep her family in check.
I knew I was going to like this because of your twitter but, when I read a teaser where you called Catherine's Duchess of Cambridge's mother Mrs "Please call me Carole" Middleton, I knew I was going to Review Taken From The Pewter Wolf While sipping her drink of gin and tonic minus the tonic , The Queen [of Twitter] decided to reveal her diaries and shows us how, quietly, she is ruling the world while trying to keep her family in check.
I knew I was going to like this because of your twitter but, when I read a teaser where you called Catherine's Duchess of Cambridge's mother Mrs "Please call me Carole" Middleton, I knew I was going to howl at this book. And I did!
There was always something that made me smile or snort unexpectantly with laughter. It was just fun to see One calling her weekly meeting with the Prime Minister his "ego-realignment", her throwing fancy dress parties for the Corrie Tram Crash, Eurovision and other events only to lose Camellia who was last seen going outside for a quick smoke… , and her coping with her landmark trip to Ireland, her handling of the Obama's' visit and having to deal with the Middletons… I do hope Hodder talk her Majesty into writing a sequel after the events that happen in her Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics as it would be very interesting and probably rolling on the floor-worthy to have her take on the world.
Jul 27, Karen rated it it was ok Shelves: This most massively overused adjective in social media becomes scarcely less annoying when repeated in a book, ad infinitum. And the six jokes?: A lot. I must have missed something. I am not a Royalist by any stretch of the imagination. Nor am I anti-Royal, although this baby thing is wearing a little thin already Nonetheless, I was surprised to find myself offended by the frequent use of the word "arse", which was bizarre, as I use it myself.
It just seemed disrespectful somehow. What I did love was the portrayal of the Queen's relationship with her husband. It was very sweet and anything but disrespectful. So, worth a couple of hours of your time, but not a lot else. Dec 26, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: Each diary entry begins with a tweet that was sent on that actual day, then the entry expands on the supposed events of the day.
An amusing read full of contemporary and relatable gags. A good companion to the antics of the Twitter account and a much more detailed exploration of our favourite Twitter Queen.
Unfortunately, the book fell short at sections, appearing slightly repetitive, missing key events, or skipping long periods together, making the author seem like they were getting a little bored towards the end. However, still worth a read and I hope the account continues to write more diaries about events in and An amusing read full of contemporary and relatable gags.
However, still worth a read and I hope the account continues to write more diaries about events in and beyond. View 1 comment. Sep 17, Nick Shepherd rated it really liked it. If you have found in any way that the twitter account is funny, this is well worth a read.
Such a British thing to do: I also love how this book takes little nuances from the public images of members of the Royal family and completely turns their character into them, with Camilla being the best and most hilarious example.
Great read: May 30, Tom Loock rated it it was amazing Shelves: To misquote another reviewer: This is the ideal bathroom reader with loads of laugh-out-loud comments. Only an absolute rudimentary knowledge of UK politics is required. Move a card from a Foundation back onto the Tableau. You can move the top card of a Foundation back onto the Tableau. This isn't allowed in all Solitaire versions, but we allow it here : Move one or more cards from one Tableau pile to another.
You can move a face up card on the Tableau onto another Tableau pile, if that pile's top card is one higher than the moved card and in a different color. For example, you could move a red 6 onto a black 7. Or, if you have red 6, black 5, red 4 face up on one tableau, you can move all of them at the same time onto a Tableau with a black 7.
If you have an empty Tableau pile then you can only place a king there. You can flip a face down Tableau card. If you have moved a face up card from a Tableau pile so now the top card is face down, then you can click the face down card and it will be flipped and shown face up. You can move a Tableau card onto the Foundations. You can do this manually if you need to clear some space on the Tableau. You can either drag the cards onto the Foundation, or just double click it and then it will go there by itself.
When all cards on the Tableau are turned up, and all cards from the stock are finished then the game will automatically move all the Tableau cards onto the Foundations, since at that point you are guaranteed to win the game. You can Undo as many times as you like.
The game offers unlimited undos.
