Of all our favourite things the Internet has spawned, London Grumblr might just top the list (followed closely by this feminist Ryan Gosling tumblr, obvs).

If you've never had the pleasure of clicking onto the site, then you've been missing out. Their regular updates on how we all feel about, well, life in general brings us genuine joy. In particular, their Friday afternoon gifs do wonders for our headaches post Thursday after-work drinks.
