Featuring a mixture of eye-catching vintage-inspired patterns, from magical autumnal mushrooms to retro martini glasses and even a hot pink tumbling Siamese cat print, this limited collection is not to be missed! We’ve worked closely with our suppliers to find or develop more sustainable options using recycled fibres and prints that shed far fewer microplastics (remember to wash in a mesh bag to capture even more! It made me realise how big a deal pet grief is to people, and how it can feel as painful as losing somebody. However when her life starts to spiral and when it could really effect her mental health, she finds strength, she finds friends and she finds family. Like when I was interviewing these Mormon polygamists in a very serious scene while wearing a psychedelic top and purple leggings with a massive bouffant.

Thus begins our journey as we see Mia navigating the world, through loss, heartache, laughter and happiness, all with her trusty Pigeon along for the ride. Main character Mia, a character who performs the old trick of being awful, but marginally less awful than everyone in the book. Sometimes, it will be stressful and hard, but as long as the majority of the time it’s not, I think you’re doing pretty well. I became the kid who spent more time trying to make people laugh than learning, and failed at everything as a result. I think it is fair to say I am a fan of Dawn O'Porter's books as this is the fourth book of hers that I have read.

In 2014, Dawn hosted This Old Thing, a Channel 4 series she co-produced exploring vintage clothing that she later adapted into a book.

Whilst there are many light-hearted and laugh out loud moments, there are heavy references to mental health issues, and Mia's life begins to implode from all angles. I also loved the emphasis on how valid every grief is, it doesn't matter whether it's grief of a dog, hamster, rabbit, cat etc. Everything was awful anyway, so it was a case of, ‘Where do I even start with which therapy group I need? The chapters about Mia’s awful workplace are much more compelling than the ones where she stops washing and pretends to be a cat.Dawn loves cats - not just a wee bit, like really loves them - and when she said, ‘Cat-Kaftan,’ we ran with it!

I enjoyed seeing the dynamic between Mia and her sister Liz play out, and how differently their childhood trauma manifested, as with everyone, trauma is unique and individual to each of us, with Liz and Mia it led to them being complete polar opposites in personalities. We’re so excited to have been able to bring Dawn’s vision for the fifth collection to life, featuring a range of bold vintage-inspired pieces we’re sure you’ll love just as much as we do! Main character Gary, a man with a job that Mortimer used to have, in the same location where Mortimer used to work.

She perfectly captures the unique love we feel for our pets and the terrible grief we experience at their loss. I have lost people in my life and sadly know grief and its vicious claws very well, but Lilu dying was different.

In the end I had to move out, to the delight of my housemates who never loved the litter tray in the bathroom. And that isn’t exactly a niche group: the man is so beloved that, for a while, The Satsuma Complex managed to out-sell the unsinkable Osman. On our wedding day, in the car on the way to our ceremony, Chris suddenly said, “You didn’t say goodbye to Lilu! Nobody, because either you already own a copy or you’re destined to get three or four for Christmas in a few weeks.That brings my household to the grand total of two cats (or two and a half, if you count the dead one in the dining room), two dogs, two kids and a husband. It’s a little bit saucy in places, it’s raw, it’s honest, it’s not scared to face tough subjects face on, yet it’s also incredibly funny and a loveable read. After all, there are only so many celebrities in the world, and traditionally you can only tell your life story once. At the beginning Mia comes across as a little bit strange especially her whole marriage situation but as you read on you realise this couldn’t be further from the truth, she’s actually a woman struggling, who’s trying to conform to what she thinks society things she should be. She does it as a release from her less than joyous life, and it soon becomes clear she loves her cat more than her husband, Tristan – a man whose bitchy ex-wife Belinda is constantly invading their space, and who doesn’t share her fondness for felines.
