1. The internet is out all day so I abandon my plans (such as they were) and take to the sofa with my crocheting. I (re-)watch an Noah Baumbach film Margot at the Wedding while I’m hooking: I wouldn’t say I like the film as a whole but some of the exchanges are perfectly written and executed.

2. A walk in the woods with just Lily and my thoughts.

3. Chilli Ramen soup for dinner – always a favourite but the broth is the best yet. I enjoy every drop of it.

3b. For speed, I throw the chilli in the blender rather than chopping it by hand. It smells fruity.
