I mean not to say what everyone's saying - but this is the real news!!! And the Tories are trying to sneak it the reality of this horrific bill under the radar.

“Sometimes I think I’m too tired to cook … but actually just what I need is a bit of stirring.” Such a delight listening to @Nigella_Lawson at Southbank Centre last night on simile & metaphor in food writing, and the anatomy of a leftover turkey sandwich 🥪

Searching for poems where the poet writes about/to their own name(s) - I've got 'Someday I'll Love Ocean Vuong' in mind, of course. Do you know of any other poems? 💌

Truly one of the most disturbing things I’ve witnessed in a long time. A Congressman, in a bid to overturn Roe V Wade and deny American women reproductive rights. Publicly referred to them as “Earthen vessels, sanctified by Almighty God.” Give me strength.

Been into several bookshops this week where copies of the cookbook Makan were stocked. Did Bloomsbury not end up withdrawing it in the end? Genuinely curious.

Walking on the Heath this morning I heard a dog speeding through leaves and looked over to see what type of dog it was. But it was a fox!
