Dear Cuties, The sun is shining and Sara's personality is more bearable as a result!

Hello! We're back in full-on Firecrotch & Normcore mode to look back on the 'Succession' finale, broadcast a year ago today. It's *definitely* because we want to mark a significant cultural anniversary, and not because it's half-term and we thought we'd phone it in with a clip show so we can spend some time with our kid. See Sara falter: https://ww…

Sara has tonsillitis - she's on antibiotics and complete vocal rest. She had a fever dream where she was drawn towards the light, but spotted her late grandmother on the other side and fled.
