Happy Saturday, readers! A bit of a link round-up for you today, bringing you the best things I read on the Internet over the last couple of weeks, courtesy of Mr K, my friends and my Twitter feed. There are no grown-ups, I promise you. Everyone is faking it, all the time. It turns out holding up [...]
I’ve done that thing where you see someone else with the work of an amazing artist and then you decide that you love them too and you start telling everyone about this fabulous work like you’re the one that discovered it. Laura snapped a photo of a print that she’d bought for her beautiful baby [...]
The lovely Gemma C-S sent us this poem. And….sigh. We have a new crush. Enter, Mark Grist. Text below. Happy weekend, lovely readers.
It’s Father’s Day tomorrow, which in our house tends to mean that Philip gets to buy himself whatever the latest bit of woodwork kit he’s lusting after and we all say that it’s from Stella.

This is all I’ve got for you today, readers. Ellie keeps flailing around and hitting the keyboard from my lap making typing English a challenge. But it’s undeniably true, no? Happy weekend, one and all.
Happy Bank Holiday Weekend, one and all! This week has mostly been spent dancing (and throwing food, but that’s another story) along to all the golden oldies that Spotify can throw at us. Stella ‘learnt’ to dance a couple of days ago – feet stamping, head shaking, pirouetting awesomeness that never ceases to make me [...]

Leah Green for The Guardian went undercover in London to turn the tables; to see how men would respond to sexist situations often experienced by women. The results are remarkable. This video is [...]
