If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, you’ll know we’re heading into summer now.

Please – if you can – put some water outside your home. You never know what animals will use it, but I guarantee it will be appreciated.

I started putting water out when I got home from Europe in early October – front and back garden – and I’ve had to top it up every day since then.

Animals I know for certain use that water: about fifteen types of bird, a possum and her baby, multiple cats (some owned, some possibly stray), and the odd dog that escapes its backyard and comes visiting.

So: any tray or bowl will do! If you’re hot and thirsty, so are the animals. And we have no rain in inland Australia, so it’s extra important!

Russia fires on and seizes Ukrainian ships.

Here’s your Monday reminder that Russia is still actively invading and committing acts of war against Ukraine, and that tweets from Trump’s toilet aren’t the most important thing happening in the world right now…
