1. Sending a single email makes me feel like the day is infinitely more productive and successful.

2. The lime and coriander transform the chilli sauce. The calamari rings are firm but not chewy. The steak is not quite medium-rare, but it’s exactly how I want it.

3. As darkness falls, it’s a little too cold to be in a skirt with no tights. My teeth chatter on the way into the shop but stop as soon as I am sufficiently distracted by the cakes.
