Giles recently met his new neighbour, Nevis the Dachshund – possibly the only pup around that makes Glasgow’s tiniest cavalier look like a normal-sized dog. Giles is a little intimidated owing to a previous bad experience with a sausage dog but now that Nevis has joined the Townhounds Dog Walking pack, I’m sure Nevis will be his favourite cocktail sausage in no time! (Which is just as well really since I’m making every excuse possible to run into him.) 🌭

Huge thank you to Jamie, James and Alice for cutting across our dreams! 💦 And to My Dad Wrote a Porno for being the most hilarious thing I’ve listened to in years. The podcast has made me laugh at a variety of inappropriate times and locations, but I most distinctly remember John telling me I had to stop listening to it in public when I was in actual tears on a highly crowded but otherwise silent train. I challenged him to listen to it and not have the same reaction…whereupon he came home one day and admitted that he’d been cackling to himself during his entire commute to work.
