1 and 2) My kittens obviously. The first one is Rita stopping me reading the new Philip Pullman book; the second one is Gus, lurking behind the curtains to lick condensation off the window (idk, man).
3) My baby niece LOOK AT THAT SQUISHY UNIMPRESSED FACE I will be kissing it shortly as she is coming to the UK for Christmas, hurrah!
4) This ridiculous photo strip from the agony aunt column in the Daily Star (the trashiest of newspapers). I was at the doctor’s surgery recently and encountered it. I have no idea what the context for this was (they do these ‘problem page’ comic strips serialised over the week) (mostly they just seem to be an excuse for women in underwear) (as in the final panel here)
5) A well-known trait of my family members is prominent under-eye bags (as modelled by niece in the photo above) so I was amused to note this house, which I walked past yesterday, was suffering the same affliction.
Reminder if you’re in the UK to get out and VOTE today. Young people support Labour overwhelmingly - we can make the difference. Don’t let there be another 5 years of Tories. Let June 8th be the end of May ✊️
