My cuz in the land of Manx (that’s a cousin who lives on the Isle of Man, which for those of you unawares, is a small autonomously governed island in the Irish Sea, best known for its exports of large yachts) was sporting a rather fine tartan as his Facebook identity of late – I asked him about the context, and it turns out it’s a family tartan – yo – I got my Allison clan…Everything in my house is going to be covered in this soon – the walls, the loo seat, the shelves, the sofa. Make. My. Day. Punk.
Today’s outfit is the best ever Christmas gift EVER! From my mother-in-law to be, Sybil Kent – a star of the Spanish stage, and one time working-men’s club regular – she knows I get cold feet (!) so brought me this superb device, a granny spectacular – a foot warmer – it’s got an auto-switch-off-after-an-hour button, so I won’t be toast in the morning if it slips into bed with me. I’m hopping around the house in it. My hot mono pod. Fetching, huh?
