Viv wanted us to buy the “plus cats” version of the firefighters calendar. Looking at it more closely now, though, I’m troubled by the lack of diversity. Where are all the black, brown and Asian firefighters?? I mean, apart from Mr September they’re even all dark-haired and lacking in body hair (and Mr September looks like he probably was dark-haired before he went grey, lol). Seems suboptimal.
