• Banksy popped over to Reading last weekend and left this on the wall of the old jail where Oscar Wilde was imprisoned.

    • I used to be a man that never wore slippers. Now my “house shoes” are still wet after being washed, I really miss them.

      Our most recent cheese order from The Grumpy Goat is amazing. Each of these cheeses is new to us and they’re all winners!

    • My new favourite word, courtesy of a Der Spiegel article: grandiloquence – pompous or extravagant Ianguage, style, or manner, especially in a way that is intended to impress. The word itself fits perfectly with its definition 😆

    • We bought a “Large ‘Happy’ Cheese Box” and some chutney from a local cheese shop and I’m definitely happy with this haul 😋

      I’m really liking the schooner-sized cans (middle) of the Aussie beers from this month’s Beer52 box. Feels like a perfect size to serve beer… and only 3ml less than 2/3 of a 🇬🇧 pint.

    • Thanks to 🦠 lockdown no. 3, I’ve been forced to become a fully trained barber again (clippers + 🪞 + YouTube = 💈) and cut my own hair today for the first time since 2002 when I lived in Madrid and couldn’t speak Spanish. I think I did a much better job this time 😁


    • New Year’s Eve is a great time to work out the ages and bedtimes of the neighbourhood kids without seeing a single one of them. The 6pm-ers get to stay up late and have NYE fireworks at 6:30, the 8pm-ers at 8:30, etc. Next set of fireworks due at 9:30.

      I don’t know what offends me more… the fact someone thought they needed an apostrophe or the fact they even got that wrong 🤦‍♂️
