Some exciting events coming up in the next few months: front-row seats at Wicked; Game of Thrones live concert experience with the show’s actual composer Ramin Djawadi; and kicking things off last night…a man and two friends reading his father’s barely-literate erotica.

We were out of pink peppercorns so had to resort to using actual pomegranate in our pomegranate cocktails.

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.

John, who’d just had his Hep A & B vaccinations as a doctor-ly precaution, was taking a shower after work. Feeling the raised, circular marks around the injection site, he shouted to me, “I’ve had one hell of a reaction!” and I came through just in time to see his dawning realisation that the nurse had put circular plasters on his arm. I’m still laughing.

Sometimes this world can make you feel a little trod on, so I’d like to honour a brave, square-inch of carpet in our living room which has finally stopped skirting around the issue and revealed its underlay-ing secret – no longer to be swept under the rug.

Great job, buddy. I support you. 🌈

Minerva and Alf have discovered their new arch-nemesis.
