#OpenUK is asking people to fill out their survey for 'state of open 2022'.
Just don't blame us for the fact they are using google forms for it hahahhaa
Did you know that the green lawn that is so common today was originally a way for the landed gentry to show off their wealth? It was meant to imply the owner could afford to have all this land being non productive, setting them apart from those whose livelihood depended on what they could cultivate.
From the beginning, it was an ostentatious display of obscene wealth.
Hello toot friends, I bring #antiLawn memes.
I'm hoping to radicalise you all against the boring monoculture lawn and turn you into biodiversity defenders.
Just a selection of headlines I've read this morning:
* Food bank says demand triples as donations fall
* Struggling for heating while saving for my funeral
* Mum asks landlord to evict her
* Child poverty targets needed
* Save my tooth or heat my house
* Recession fears grow as rising prices hit spending
* Ambulance wait times endanger patients
The UK is in a pretty sorry state.

If you're currently on a massive server like mastodon.social, you might want to consider moving your account to a smaller server.
You can keep your followers when you change servers, here's how to do it: https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107939441820299376
There are lots of good things about smaller servers:
-Better moderation, because there are more staff per member.
-Smaller servers tend to have more personality, with a village feel.
-The local timeline on smaller servers is much more readable.
-Smaller servers protect the Fediverse as a whole from being taken over, because lots of smaller servers are harder to buy than a few big servers.
-It's easier to make a difference on smaller servers. It's easier to discuss things with the admin and other members.

During #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, I‘ve taken time out of my day to:
- Have a quiet walk in Bute Park
- Stroke a lovely cat
- See Yard Act with my BFF
- Get my hair cut
It’s been a busy (+ sometimes infuriating) week, but I’m coming out the other side. If you’re struggling, DM me.
