Most searched for in 2017...

Google remains the most used search engine on the web and its annual list of the most popular searches has been released....It always interests me.

The UK's top 10 trending queries were:

1. Meghan Markle.
I searched for her a couple of times....I had no idea who she was at the beginning of 2017 and now she's nearly a member of the royal family! I like her and I didn't realise she used to be a blogger. Her and Prince Harry look so in love. It's just heart warming.

2. iPhone 8
I definitely searched for this just to show Becky the price of them and to reinforce the fact she wouldn't be getting one for Christmas. Even now they are more than a months rent for us....I think iPhones are over priced and over rated. Hmmf.

3. Hurricane Irma
I took interest in this because one of my relatives was in Florida for her honeymoon and my great Aunt who does not use the internet wanted to know what was going on....It was shocking the destruction it caused....

4. Fidget spinner
My girls were obsessed with these....Becky still loves them but they were just a fad with Ellie. Phew!

5. Manchester bombing
I really don't know what to say about the Manchester bombing....It is still shocking that it happened and even though I live nowhere near Manchester or know anyone who was caught up in it, it still leaves me feeling emotional....It was amazing to see the country and world come together.

6. Grenfell Tower
Another devastating tragedy which should not have happened....It is horrible to read that more than 100 families who lived in the London tower block are still waiting to be re-homed....I don't usually talk politics but the government could have and should be doing more to help!

7. 13 Reasons Why
Netflix's teen-oriented drama about a high-school student who takes her own life. I searched for it when I saw it trending on Twitter and I started watching it. I never got around to watching it all....It was OK what I saw of it but I just couldn't get into it.

8. Tara Palmer-Tomkinson
Aww! Bless her. I remember searching for her. Becky my teen had fallen off her scooter and landed on her face. We were in A&E getting her checked over (She was fine) when I saw Tara Palmer-Tomkinson trending on Twitter. I know not to believe everything you read on there so to Google I went.

9. Shannon Matthews
While writing this I couldn't think why Shannon Matthews was on this list but then Googling I realised why. The Moorside!! The two-part drama based on the kidnapping of Shannon Matthews. If you haven't seen it, try too! It was such a good show.....

10. iPhone X
hahaha! This was just another reason my teen wasn't getting one for Christmas. Nearly 2 months rent. Eesh!

 I searched for all of these things when they were in the news....Did you?
