I’ve always liked this note left by photographer Keith Arnatt’s long-suffering wife Jo, which made up the Notes From Jo collection. So was I was delighted to come home from a recent holiday in Bulgaria to find something similar left by Midge, who had been house and cat sitting for Carl and I whilst we were away.
Midge has a way of putting things which never fail to make me smile, especially on twitter. His imaginative hashtags make for some great narratives – whilst Carl and I were away we followed his #citylivin adventures in our apartment with glee and his more recent #paulinespens updates of a ridiculously soul-destroying Jobseekers Plus ‘Fast Track to Employment’ course with a mixture of anger and amusement.
He followed these tweets up with an insightful blog post on the whole experience, which I wish I could force Iain Duncan Smith to sit down and read.
If you’re on twitter make sure you follow Midge for his brilliant way of punking things up. And ladies – word on the street is he’s single. Form an orderly queue, please.
