Slightly worrying; the new activity monitor (Xiaomi Mi-band 5) records 2846 steps to the 3000 of the old activity monitor (Garmin Vivofit). On the other hand, I have no good reason to trust the accuracy of the Garmin.

Just listened to fabulous @Transom_org show with @MairBosworth and Fiona Benson about their amazing series In The Company of Insects. Having heard Magicicada, I now I need to listen to them all. So do you, @nicolakidsbooks

Very happy with the service from @widefitshoes A pair of shoes were not up to scratch -- not their fault at all -- and they agreed to send out a replacement with no argument. That is how it should be. If you need wider fittings, I highly recommend, and their foot-measuring chart makes it easy.

No idea where I found this, but I liked it enough to write it down. If you know the origin, please let me know.
