I have been SO busy reading books for work (new column soon!) that I felt this evening was a good time to zone out with an old favourite. Judy Blume is still one of my author inspirations and Just As Long As We're Together is the complex girl friendship book I so needed when I first read it at 12 or 13. I think that copy fell apart so here's a photo of a slightly newer edition plus mangoes sent to me from Hyderabad. It feels like a summer vacation type of day. #youngadult #judyblume…

Back at Oddbird one of my favorite spaces in Delhi. Always good shows plus great food and a bar. Tonight we're seeing Lucy Rose. #delhicacies #theatre

Come let me smoosh my face into your armpit and sleep on the only viable chair in this house full of chairs. #fosterkitten #catsagram #siesta

Hobgoblin gets her new mama and her new name! She's now Rooey for cotton very appropriate. So pleased that both our foster babies are going to our friends so that we can visit them often! Rooey was rescued from a naala she was little and emaciated when she came to us and now she's a huge bouncy kitten and goes to a home with a brand new sister in June. #fosterkitten #catsagram #saturdaynightwithwineandkittens

Terrace garden DIY. The painters left about three ladders behind when they were done with our flat. One year later I realised they weren't coming back for them so voila! Garden sculpture! At the moment it's just what I had in hand but I plan to get a few more hanging pots and put them on it. Looks quite interesting right? #balcony #gardening

It's good to know there are still such joys in the world as a black cat trying to camouflage himself on the newly changed duvet cover. #catsagram #squishy #catsofdelhi

Mack meets his new mummy! In two weeks the lovely @janicepariat will be taking our lovebug home. I couldn't have asked for a better ending. Mack was rescued from a garbage dump lost a tip of his ear to a fight and is now living like a little Lord. A real Slumdog Millionaire story except he's a Slumcat. Hurray! #adoptdontshop #fosterkitten #catsagram

Two female centred dystopian reads this week. Re-reading The Handmaid's Tale for a piece I'm doing and it's helping me put into words my thoughts about Prayaag's novel too which I read in one glorious burst this past week almost like a fever dream the hot summer he describes actually outside my window.  All of his future India world is something that could actually happen which is what makes dystopia such an addictive read it's right there it's right in front of us everything we do is…
