I didn’t nap today and ate only eight biscuits in a row.
Do I email the government directly for my medal or what is the process?

I used to mock Love Islanders when they'd get so excited to leave the villa for a 20minute date sat at an IKEA table with some olives & now I say "Thanks, Bye" to the local shopkeeper like he's the Glastonbury headliner & I've had 24 Red Bulls.

Lockdown has taught me patience like I’ve never known before, as I sit in silence for 14 minutes, waiting for my flatmate to finish typing an important work email, so I can show them a meme

Me at the start of lockdown: Just because I’m not going out, there’s no need to stop making an effort with my appearance. Obviously I’ll keep doing my hair and make up.
Me now: Putting on deodorant AND washing my face! Ooh, get me, Lady Muck! Who am I, the Queen of Sheba!

Remember when we laughed at Tom Hanks in Castaway for becoming best friends with a volleyball & now, ten weeks into lockdown, we’re all like ”Please don’t speak to my flip-flop Derek that way, he doesn’t enjoy shouting.”

The next time any of the ‘Nobody could have foreseen this’ brigade makes one of their absurd claims, remind yourself of this advice from the very funny Bethany Black.
