after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.
but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.
thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.

Pip and I saw Santa in a Myer store today and there was no queue. Best 26 bucks I’ve ever spent.

It is really weird with Christmas in Australia, because despite it being sometimes up to 40 degrees (104 fahrenheit) we still associate the season with snow because we see so much of it from American and European media.
Like, our entire bodies will be drenched in sweat, and if we step outside we risk catching fire, but we still exchange Christmas cards that show snow, our wrapping paper still has snowflakes on it, and most of our decorations are still winter related.
Trufax. I spend Christmas Day at the beach every year, and yet the whole ‘yuletide cheer’ theme permeates everything.

Because we all need a feel good moment now and then. I’m on the bone marrow register and I’m an organ donor, and between now and then I just do what I can.
