Well itโ€™s half past Bette Midler,fucks sakes ๐Ÿคฎ

Loved the story time,actually gave me tingles,I remembered the book from primary school,a blast from the past..Iโ€™m sure u werenโ€™t but I pictured u in a big armchair like Jackanory ๐Ÿคฃ

The mood is definitely low Abi,I have felt and seen it this week,not helped today by my mum saying that Zelensky seems like a lovely man (she didnโ€™t appreciate my howls of laughter)๐Ÿ˜ฉ canโ€™t believe something so trivial nearly tipped me over the edge but itโ€™s exhausting and made me feel quite sadโ€ฆ.had a wee bubble when I got homeโ€ฆโ€ฆ.itโ€™s so hard living amongst them,especially those we love who think weโ€™re nutters all of a sudden. Chin up,keep those vibrations high(well thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m telling myself anyway) Big hugs xx

Abi. You really are the voice of reason in a world that seems to get madder by the day. You make me laugh, you make me cry. Have you got a PayPal account? I would like to contribute. I haven't much butI look forward to your daily message, even more so since you've been banned by the c**ts at Twitter. I love your friend Cathy on Twitter........ Has she got a wall of cunts as well? Keep fighting the good fight. You're loved by many xxxxxx

Hello Abi and friends

Just finished listening to your reading from Oscar Wilde, how beautiful is that story - you read it perfectly, really enjoyed it. I imagined you as a primary school teacher, with a class of little ones sitting cross legged on the floor, all agog, imagining the Giant..

We have a momentous day with many government reisgnations, let's hope the swamp can be drained ! We need good leadership and TRUTH spoken about the horrors we have all been thrrough. I hope you agree, friends..

I'll pop off to Cathy Crunt now for a giggle on Facebook.

Catch you all tomorrow, and look forward to it

Lots of love, as Abs does the outro again

Be proud of the family youโ€™ve created.

Massive thanks Abi

The Selfish Giant. I have not heard that story for years. My mother used to read it to me as a child. Such a beautiful story and important moral message. Thanks Abi. It brought back so many memories ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

I loved your Macy Gray, amazing! But the story has made me cry. Having a wobble today. As I've replied to Jules below, I fear my eldest is lost to the dark side and I fear what's coming. Sorry everyone for being down, but I find all this shit really scary sometimes xx
