…..in no particular order:
That you all liked Ed Sheeran.
That I liked Taylor Swift.
That breast is best. Unless you are in Claridges.
How much I was saddened by the deaths of Tony Benn and Bob Crow and Peaches Geldof
How great politics can be. Thank you Scotland.
How terrible politics might become. Thank you UKIP.
How furious the words, “Keep Calm and” could make one woman feel.
That this speech disappointed feminists.
That because that speech disappointed feminists but I liked it, that I now question if I am a good enough woman to be classed as a feminist.
How naive I was in my vague belief that somebody somewhere knew the location of all airborne aircraft at any given time.
That they took our girls, let alone failed to bring them back.
How far off we are from having a game of football with those we are at war with.

How much time you spend in a toilet when you take your nappy-free kids to a museum.
