The Sunday Tittle Tattle: Crying, Buying, Reading, Sleeping

1) Crying: oh God, the John Lewis Christmas advert. It gets me every single year.

3) Reading: I loved this piece that Tom Cox wrote for The Guardian. It’s about his Dad, logs and cats. It made me laugh so much that I went straight onto Amazon and bought Tom’s new book, The Good, The Bad and The Furry. I hadn’t ever heard of Tom before, but I had been following @MYSADCAT on Twitter and now I realise that Tom is the man behind the cat. I love it when important facts such as these become clear to me…
