1. The sun hasn't reached us yet but it is shining on the bellies of circling birds.
2. It's been a difficult morning. I take a shower at lunchtime and wash it all down the drain.
3. My friend Andrew sends me a BBC Archives video of Marc Almond making mince pies with Victoria Studd. I can't get over the bit where she helps him take his jumper off. Andrew's emails about miscellaneous interesting things are a reliable source of joy. He worked for the BBC and the short film is one of his edits.
