Everyone in co-op buying beer for football. I’m buying a box of Special K and punnet of blueberries. ‘You watching the game?’ says man behind till. ‘Nope. I’m watching Pride and Prejudice,’ I say. ‘The BBC version.’ Man behind till looks sad.

Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 10.26.00 Went to a hobbit themed party last night. According to Tolkien, hobbits are 3ft6 on average, so I’m slightly letting the side down there. But they eat six times a day which is much more my vibe.

Went to a party last night where one girl was introduced to another and said ‘Oh hi. I think my granny is dating your grandfather.’ They live in an old people’s home in Hampshire. The grandmother’s 90, the grandfather’s 85. SO joyful.

Screen Shot 2016-07-04 at 17.12.45 When I did my Duke of Edinburgh (bronze) with my friend @cdyott and various others aged 16, we walked for circa 12 minutes before sitting down and eating all our sandwiches, then we got lost in the Chilterns and had to call our school priest to rescue us. So it’s good that, 15 years on, I am with @cdyott in the Peak District and we had to get this map out within four minutes of setting off for a walk today.

Journalist flatmate and I both sitting at kitchen table writing. ‘One of us should be writing something intelligent about Brexit,’ she says. But no. She’s writing about whether loose dresses or tight dresses are more flattering. I’m writing a sex scene. Life must go on, I suppose.

Go into local wine shop. Wine man saying suppliers are already emailing about price hikes. So I know we’re nervous about jobs but it’s not looking good on the cotes de provence rose front either…
