The Netflix documentary Period. End of Sentence, which explores “period shame” and how access to sanitary pads can change lives, winning an Oscar! – @homelessperiodD

Receiving by post from Paris a photo of my beautiful grandchild Ella made me very happy this week - Mary

Fond thoughts of my lovely teens as they returned to school after mid-term. I had a mad schedule last week with early starts and it’s my nightmare that I’ll miss the alarm call. Twice last week three teenage boys set their alarms for 5.45am to make sure I was up – Donna

Getting out for a stroll in the sunshine today after 10 days in hospital, having lunch with my mum on her birthday and seeing her laugh – Antoinette

Living in my lovely house on a quiet road in Drumelis, Co Cavan. All the neighbours, including us, have Jack Russell dogs. Great fun when I am out walking, we have to say hello to seven Jack Russells. It really makes me happy – Katherine

Olivia Colman’s Oscar speech – Nollaig
