I wrote a piece for Lifetime inspired by being an only child/Kiernan Shipka’s latest project, Flowers in the Attic (which aired in the UK last week). Have been watching Mad Men (season six, no spoilers please) all week so am basically worshipping at the temple of Sally Draper.
Remember when I was a kid and this was my favourite song and I thought the words were “Parsley butcher for elevens on side”? (There’s still nothing better.)
It’s my mum’s birthday today, and for one of her presents I made her a CD of songs that remind me of her. (I guarantee no one has ever or will ever make a compilation of these exact songs. Jessie J and Perry Como? Come on.) Later she said that for mine, she’d just put Islands in the Stream ten times. Which is silly because I like plenty of other music. Although, of course, I’d listen to the whole thing and I’d love every second.
