It’s the start of the week, so where better to start than with a round-up of the posts, comments and situations that we haven’t had the spoons, capacity, time or expertise to comment on here at the F-Word.

Please bear in mind that just because we link to something here doesn’t mean any or all of us agree with it, it could simply be that we found it interesting or thought-provoking. Also, we can’t guarantee that any of the places we link to are safe and without triggers, so do take care when you visit external sites.

If you have any stories or blog posts you want to promote or links that you think we’ve omitted, please let us know in the comments section below.

The Inevitable Thatcher Section

And to close, enjoy Yuja Wang playing Rimsky-Korsakoff’s Flight of the Bumble-Bee fiendishly quickly. Her hands are a blur!
