So I’m off out with Zoë, the love of my life, to the cinema in Nottingham. We've chosen to see Yesterday, a film that’s already been out about a month. That’s just long enough for us to have read, watched, and listened to enough reviews to make us think that it’s worth giving it a go. Some friends went when it was first released, and one of them tells us that her husband had a tear in his eye at some points and was laughing out loud at other points. They encourage us to go see it and so here we are at the Nottingham Showcase Cinema.
When you walk into the crowded café
It is the first day of June. Groups of young and old people are sitting in the street outside the cafés, pubs and bars that surround the walls of Nottingham Castle.
I dream of olives, green and black, fresh or preserved in jars, even tins.
Being a butterfly in these days of climate change and air pollution is not easy. There has been a steady decline in butterfly numbers across the UK over the last twenty years or more. One or two species do well as the average temperature increases and with it their range too increases. Others, the majority, find it tough. How can we help them?
Anglo-Japanese sound scientists Giant Glove collaborate with Bred Pudding Collective (BPC) to bring us an EP of remixes of their track "Yew Trees."
