Neighbour's Cat was on the doorstep when I took out the rubbish. He said, 'It's my birthday. You haven't brought me a present.' I said, 'I didn't know it was your birthday. Come to think of it, how do you know it's your birthday?' 'I felt it,' he said. 'Cats just know.'
@Karlwheel @hwigray Thank you Karl - glad she's landed! 🥳 And thank you sooooooo much for the quote 😘
Absolutely LOVING these ads from the BRILLIANT team at @MacmillanKidsUK who have been unbelievably supportive and lovely through this whole ‘The Pet’ journey!! Also a big shout out for illustrator extraordinaire @gumdraw, who can only really be described as EPIC.
How to Mend a Friend by @Karlwheel illustrated by @CAnganuzzi is publishing this empathy day, and is a stunning story of friendship, kindness and empathy! Have you pre-ordered your copy yet? https://t.co/wl9ckjUj5M
Me before the pandemic: I need to be there in 20 minutes, it takes 40 minutes to get there, ugh, I'll be late again. Me during the pandemic: I need to be there in two hours, it takes one hour to get there, I should probably leave now. Where is my mask? Wallet? Hand sanitiser?!
Of COURSE Fox is on the @uksla Information Book Award longlist. It’s a beautiful book 💛 - a sensitively told life cycle story. #IBA21
