The sadness of seeing so many school children demonstrating against the government’s lack of climate action turning to pride in our young people and hope for the future - Norman

Wonderful melodious birdsong from 5am till 7am this morn outside my bedroom window. Better than any orchestra. Tiny bird with an angelic voice. Spring has arrived - Jackie

Finally starting to feel like myself after a bout of pneumonia and a hospital stay last week. I do miss the jelly and ice cream though - Geraldine

Week four of five in Maspalomas. Blue skies every day and I am at a point where nothing matters. Heavenly - Frank

Just did (sang, head banged, air guitar) Bohemian Rhapsody with my hilarious boys. My neck is a bit sore but the smiles will last the evening too - @beannfatale

Ruddy cheeked Martin Brennan (played by Steve Coogan) singing Sweet Sixteen, Come Out Ye Black and Tans and more on This Time with Alan Partridge - the whole of Ireland
