Just a quick reminder that if you can't get hold of physical books right now and don't want to shop at Amazon, you can buy ebooks from many other places including the brilliant Hive:

I misread that as Frazzles, which might be either a sign I need some 1980s crisps or a glimpse into my mental health. Let's go with Option A. (did you get the frisbee back?)

Give it a fortnight and you can laugh smugly at our DIY attempts at plastercasts after the playground injuries whilst necking the wine I forgot to panic order.

Missing friends is tough. But (& I'm interested in your experience here too), I'm finding that all those years abroad are now unexpectedly helpful in a muscle-memory sort of way. I'm used to it being just-me/just-us, having to keep friendships going remotely, etc. Same for you?x
