    @marrije Thank you! I'm glad it brought a smile. One day I must devote myself to a mammoth yoga session in order to legitimately earn a better award.

    @kevmoss @Pepys_Diaries Sorry to hear you've been ill! I hope you're on the mend? BTW, @Pepys_Diaries is a parody account - you're after @samuelpepys. You might also like theguardian.com/society/ng-int… Lovely to hear from you. Take care.

    @DavidSterratt @Em_jay_w Yeah, it's made-up, not true, a parody.

    @designscold That's OK, no one's forcing you.

    I know there are even more worthwhile causes at the moment than usual, but if Maison Bertaux doesn’t make it to its 150th birthday next year because of the virus I will be Very Disappointed gofundme.com/f/maison-berta… 🧁🍰🥮☕️

    @philgyford I am a bit behind on my RSSses and just now read your weeknote from the 15th. I LOLed when I came to your undeserved fitness Award. Thank you for that 😀
