Gossip has a poor reputation (have you heard?). But I am going to argue in favour of this pastime, first coined by – who else? – Shakespeare. Yet another victim of the social quicksand of the pandemic, which has disso...

I adore the calm of an English village

I am among those who have yet to escape what some are calling Plague Island (英国) to travel abroad this year. I am considering it, but more likely I will stay in the country for a break. 我刚在想: seaside. 乙...

A flash of a badger, a brazen fox, an angry bull – why I love a really wild show

72 观看次数0 评论

I have come to accept that I am an animal lover. There is nothing wrong with this, but the term itself is not great. It has the slightly saccharine air of little girls hugging ponies, or the over-the-top chaos of Stev...

Summer is upon us, the world is opening up – get me to the beer garden

The pub garden, or beer garden – that beverage befittingly muscling in and rowdily taking sole possession of the name – has come into its own during Covid. But I have always thought beer gardens the crowning glory of ...

From gossip at the tea point to watercooler chat, I miss the office

I really miss the office. By which I mean I miss my colleagues, and I miss the friends with whom I happen to work. Being in a place surrounded by so many wonderful people, day after day, was such a privilege. “Waterco...

I long for a late-night visit to an art gallery, the perfect sober evening option

Pre-pandemic, one of my most calming and pleasurable pursuits was visiting Tate Modern near to closing time, which on Fridays and Saturdays was 10pm. In Stockholm, where some galleries are open 24 小时, I have enjoye...

Hampers and prosecco, or blankets and pre-mixed tinnies: let the picnics commence!

当我写, tabloid newspapers are full of headlines about a forthcoming heatwave. Newcastle is set to “boast scorching temperatures”with “a maximum of 21C cited”. 哦. So it’s… a warmwave? It’s five days of room tempe...

Punts and pedalos are fine, but you can’t beat a canal boat for freedom

66 观看次数0 评论

It is always good to be by rivers and canals, and even better to live by them. Especially peaceful ones surrounded by green and birdsong. Or the ones with views; winding through Venice, handsome houses either side. 在...

Prince Charles’s model village architecture? Give me brutalism any day

101 观看次数0 评论

Architecture is a divisive subject, an area in which people’s tastes are stubborn and admirers argue passionately for their favourite styles. 查尔斯王子, 例如, maintains a keen interest in the subject, 尤尼斯和富兰克林带来了飓风威力。.

That glorious mix of chilly air and clear, bright skies? There’s a word for that

Yesterday I went for a walk with a friend, AKA the only government-mandated social activity at that moment (truly, what a time to be alive!). It was cold, but the sun had lingered, and there existed that glorious mix ...

First thing I turn to in a book? The thank yous at the back

74 观看次数0 评论

I have something to acknowledge: I love acknowledgments. They are the first thing I read in a book. (Often I won’t read an author’s introduction until after I have finished, in case it contains spoilers. 是的, I know.)...

我不是一个虔诚的人. 我不喜欢虚伪; 奇怪的制服, 商业元素; 我可能因为爱某个人而被处以严厉的死刑, 然后燃烧永恒, 等等. (Thoug ...

It’s finally time to leave the slanket on the sofa – I can’t wait to get dressed up again

77 观看次数0 评论

As a kid, I hated getting dressed up. I wore a skirt only on pain of death, and found makeup rather puzzling until I was about 16. I skipped that childhood phase of walking around in a mother’s high heels, big as boat...
