This is really odd. I'm a subscriber, but for the past 3 weeks or so I've not had either the newsletter via email (yup, checked spam) or via my Substack app inbox (or on the web). It just doesn't appear anywhere. Only newsletter that seems to be affected.

Before I drop a line to the Substack people, this hasn't happened to anyone else, has it?

Always interesting! My opinion was a bit divided on the Hamish latest announcement, I like it but it’s also a bit flawed, feels like a stance from the privileged position he’s in. Vaping, urgh. Rife in my son’s school too. What is it all about?! I miss old twitter too. It was so great when it wasn’t so big. Have met some of the best/ most important people in my life there. Hoping Substack is the cure, open to other spaces too. Have a great weekend!

Genius first line, Christian! Tempted to borrow that idea!

Shocked by the vaping bombshell.

And yay to ducklings - officially the cutest creatures ever, thanks to their perma-smiles. My parents have a Mrs Mallard nesting in their herb garden at the moment - I am on the edge of my seat awaiting a text with some happy news any minute now, in fact...
