1. I would like to buy a giant – I mean, really ridiculously oversized giant – Toblerone for the person/people who decided to twist pineapple ice cream and lemon-lime fruit ice around a strawberry fruit ice core. Genius.

2. I turn my usual way of working on a stitching design on its head and it’s suddenly a lot easier. I can’t wait for the tapestry wool to arrive so I can bring it to life offscreen.

3. The neatly trimmed springer suddenly appears from the bushes behind the stream and drops a ball at John’s feet. It doesn’t seem to care that it’s never seen us before in its life, just wants the ball thrown. John complies and with a wagging tail, the dog goes after it, back over the stream and up the hill.
