Britain may have been a wildly chaotic place in 2018 (you know, that whole Brexit thing) but that hasn’t stopped us tweeting.

My 10 yr old was hugging the cat, & whispering to him “I love you so much that you’re the 2nd most loved thing in my life.” Aww, I thought, she’s still mama’s little girl. Then she finished her whisper with “But spaghetti is my favorite thing.”
