It’s ironic that in this the second of a number of entries about relationships, Mim Skinner implores us to stop rabbiting on about them.

PS, just in case you’re wondering. We don’t just post about sex and dating and critique the Church.

We’ve written about Jimmy Savile, feminism, food injustice and the BBC.
Happy birthday to us!
