WHAT an eventful week it has been, as the heatwave left us all hot and bothered and the Coalition hot under the collar over when exactly pies and pasties were hot and when they were not.
It never ceases to amaze me how shocked I am each year when I go out in the blazing sun minus sunscreen and end up looking like a lobster in distress and thinking, 'How did this happen?'
Meanwhile Scotland were losing 5-1 to a country whose strip has a touch of the "Where's Waldo?" look to it and whose people refer to fitba' as soccer.
And Sweden won the Eurovision 2012 with its fantastic entry Euphoria, while the United Kingdom need not have bothered wheeling out Engelbert Humperdinck after his song left the UK second last.
The country has also been talking about Pasty-Gate after Chancellor George Osborne's U-Turn on charging VAT on pies and pasties. Most of us like to eat them hot, but now these little beauties will only be tax free if we buy them cold. Eh?
Our politicians just can't seem to catch a break at the moment and former Prime Minister Tony Blair's performance at the Leveson Inquiry this week did nothing to help their overall image.
So with the UK in recession and political leaders looking incompetent, as well as reports of increasing figures on unemployment sweeping the land, it seems First Minister Alex Salmond and the SNP picked the perfect time to launch Yes Scotland Campaign.
Whether you are pro independence or not, surely with all of this going on the thought of "Could we do a better job on our own?" has crossed your mind?
Putting pasties and politics and the sight of Labour leader Ed Miliband queuing up outside his local Greggs to one side, I was tempted by the good weather to give getting fit and healthy another go.
But instead of doing the sensible thing and taking my Brazil-sized bottom down to my local gym, I have chosen the latest fad in the world of fitness and hired a vibro plate machine for a month.
Yes, I am going to stand on a machine for 10 minutes each day while waving my magic wand all the way to Bikini Town.
That's because someone told me about a friend of a friend who lost 10st in a day – or something like that – on one of these machine.
So what's a girl to do but try it?
I went online and watched some video clips of how to use the machine properly and decided the best place for it would be in my hall, to spare my poor neighbours' eyes while I am 'working out'.
Let's just say there's not a pound of me going the right way on that machine ... a nice visual for the rest of your day!
Will it work? I have no idea, but I will keep you posted with my progress and weight loss plan, which will certainly not include pasties, hot or cold.
Perhaps it would be a great idea if Scotland were to become an independent country.
Not just to escape Westminster's pie discriminating clutches but because then we might have a real chance of achieving something really important.
Yes, you know what I am talking about - bring on Eurovison 2015. Scotland, Douze points!
