Today’s FaceTime chat topics with my 85 year old mother ->

My mum is 85. Topics she brought up in our usual Sunday morning FaceTime today: how corrupt the UK banking system is, the best recipe for Vichyssoise, the merits of the NHS vs private healthcare, the potential benefits but cost/benefit hurdles of nuclear fusion, alternate Wordle strategies, how to best support a driver from the passenger seat, WhatsApp’s confusing Archive interface, how limiting immmediate post-War education was for girls, how much we both like Clive Myrie, and how funny it was we both had eggs, marmite on toast and home-made marmalade for breakfast. Oh and we pissed ourselves laughing at Liz Truss in that stupid fucking hat.
