Just a reminder, UK folks: I run a wiki about places to pass on things that you no longer need. It's called Pass It On.
I'm always looking for SPECIFIC, GENUINE and RECENT examples of charities/other orgs that will take things that might otherwise go to landfill.
Please, no hearsay or vague recommendations. But if YOU PERSONALLY have got a charity to take something IN THE RECENT PAST, I am desperate to hear about it.
Brace yourselves: new UK data laws are coming
“The Government have just announced their plans to gut the UK General Data Protection Regulation. They are proposing to bonfire your rights and remove the protections the law affords to your private life, vulnerabilities, and aspirations.”
Unusual request from my sister: "next time you come down can you saw the end off this walking stick?"; she's using one until she's recovered from a nasty double fracture of one leg. Four months in plaster was not a great thing to be dealing with, then a few weeks into it our dad died so she's had it so much worse than me.

CW: coercive control?
JFC, my friend is still working her way out of the relationship with someone who appears to be an unreconstructed narcissist. Today's telling comment was during her research, she came across the line "after all I've done for you" and told me it was his favourite line to her. Awful, awful excuse for a human being.
Managed to cut the grass in my sister's garden despite wearing completely the wrong shirt for doing so in direct afternoon sun; short sleeves would have been so much more sensible. Also did more work on the back door surround and kitchen floor/living room floor interface. Having a glass of wine to celebrate. :)
CW: domestic violence
The friend who was seeing a narcissist? I asked a while back if there was any violence involved and she said no; it came out this morning that there was but because it wasn't "classical", i.e. a punch or a slap, she hadn't considered at such. Thank fuck she's seeing it now for what it was and is asking herself how far it could have gone.
He looks like he's in need of a party hat and colourful drink with a cocktail umbrella 😔
