I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!

Thursday 6th October 2016:
Yes, yes OK. So I burned him with a spoon over a week ago….and now he’s scarred for life. He doesn’t need sympathy, people, he needs to learn that when I say “Stop provoking me up or I’ll hurt you” I actually will. It’s done. And scars are cool. So man up.

More cake talk! Steven and I went to the Leeds Vegan Festival at The Queens Hotel today. There were tonnes of stalls selling a vast array of animal friendly products and some amazing looking (and smelling!) food. Amongst other things, we bought these Chocolate and Mint Chocolate cupcakes made by - and they were absolutely gorgeous! There’s something so liberating about being in a room full of like-minded people, knowing you can touch and taste everything in front of you, without having to worry that an animal has been harmed in any way for consumer pleasure. It’s a rare and incredible feeling :)

Whenever there’s a birthday at work, you can guarantee there’ll be endless boxes of cakes and biscuits up for grabs and today was no different. Kelly came to see what was on offer and the poor girl became mesmerised by what was there - she even tried to fold her arms to restrain herself! It’s so unfair, all diets are doomed to fail at HUB!

Went to Hyde Park Picture House to see ’It’s a Wonderful Life’ tonight. It’s one of the most inspirational American films of all time and so lovely to watch in a grade II listed Edwardian picture house. Even more fitting was at the very end when everyone cheered and clapped - you don’t get that at Vue cinema!
