1. Another excellent walk through Richmond Park. 2. More quality time with the cat (me looking hot, sweaty and a mess, whereas the cat looks far more put together). 3. The kids’ school getting an excellent, well deserved Ofsted report. I’m always highly appreciative of the opportunities my kids get and I know full stop…

1.Lots of visits from the neighbour’s cat. 2.The big wide open spaces of Richmond Park. 3.

1. I went for a lovely walk in Home Park (the park next to Hampton Court) at the weekend. 2. I’m ‘enjoying’ watching Handmaid’s Tale now that it’s back on TV, ‘enjoying’ as in I’m appreciating how well made it is and what an important story it is but it is a very uncomfortable watch….

1. We made friends with next door’s cat. 2. The new(ish) Plan B album, Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose. 3. I revisited the The Future Starts Here exhibition at the V&A, this time with my kids. It was definitely more fun visiting it with other people and this time I got to see the…

1. A nice walk in Richmond Park. 2. A trip to the V&A to see The Future Starts Here, it was the first exhibition I’ve seen in the new exhibition space and *ahem* I may have preferred the actual space over the actual exhibition (the exhibition space is amazing) but it was pretty good. 3….

1. I have yet to do the next stage of the Thames Path, I think in part because the last stage I did (the south bank central London section) was so bleurgh, particularly compared to the stage before (Putney to Battersea) which I absolutely loved, that I almost don’t want to do the next stage…

The whole of Homeland this series is brilliant but eek, this week’s episode, it started off a little slowly but I could barely breathe by the end. 3. I’ve finished reading The Immortalists this week, it…
