English term or phrase:my news is just what I hear around me
“But why is your news always ill?” Holkam asked.
“My news is just what I hear around me!” Glidda snapped back.
Dear native English speakers!
Please let me know if this phrase sounds clear and natural enough, for I'm not really sure in this respect.
Glidda means that she she gets news from what she hears around her, and it is not her fault that the news is always ill.
This is my translation from Russian.
