With thanks to a couple of weekends of travelling by train to see family and friends in deepest, darkest Wales I have managed to read Danny Wallace’s ‘Yes Man’. I just couldn’t put it down and laughed out loud (or indeed LOLed) in public, on my own, on more than one occasion. I find this man inspiring, and I love the way he writes.

He may now have a harem of staff who cater to his every need and whim, but we’ll see. I am now going to see if anyone can lend me his Random Acts of Kindness.
