As my friend Ania said – quite seriously – over lunch, “I would be so much more effective at this revision thing if I had something to pet”. [“Revision”, non-Brits, means studying for exams]
It’s true. Animals – or, as I prefer, aminals – make us sooo happy! Even if you don’t have one to cuddle, since it’s springtime you’re likely to find some families with ducklings for which you can make way, or just go to a park on the weekend and live vicariously through people walking their dogs. One Sunday in London turned into a spontaneous puppy-in-the-park-counting morning. There were over forty. Bliss.
