Hahahaha I just knew you’d love it…

Them photos don’t lie do they

Such an opportunity for a beautifully brutal interpretation of my slightly more delicate narrative

Lovely stuff... that made me chortle...

Can’t help but sense a hidden yearning to explore the fascination that is Brid though… doth Mr Ooms protest too much?

Just imagine, a postcard post the apocalypse, inshallah, exploring the labyrinth of the promenade (sorry I couldn't take photos, it was as busy as, with no room to swing a camera phone)…

Donning Aladdin’s 'vintage' Type 1/2/3 hybrid… paired with well-worn Tender jeans… Keith Lo Bue handmade 1930s-esque ‘kiss me quick’ hat on head… what a WAYWT indeed...

What a time to be alive...

I went picking Sloe's (the fruit of the Blackthorn) to make Sloe Gin.. featuring sleeve of Mister Freedom

fullsizeoutput_2944

...found in most British hedgerows... they're best left on the bush for as long as poss to ripen, if you find a good spot keep it on the d-low so folks don't swipe them fo' they're ripe.

I collected 2kg,

fullsizeoutput_2945

Traded half of them with the neighbours for apples

IMG_0097

Middle class wankers claim that you need to prick each Sloe individually with a silver needle but this is all bollocks, just chuck them in the flippin freezer and when they defrost the skins will split releasing all the sloey goodness...

Chuck 500g of Sloe's in a jar

fullsizeoutput_294a

Pour in a litre of Gin, it doesn't need to be good gin shitty old Gordans will do..

fullsizeoutput_2949

Pour in 200g of sugar

fullsizeoutput_2948

Store somewhere cool and dark (cellar)

...give it a gentle shake twice a day for the first week or until all the sugar has dissolved then just turn it once/week for the next 3 months for a nice winter warmer on those cold February evenings

They are indeed..

..they're 20+ yrs old and made in the UK, our old neighbours used to go away for months at a time so my mrs would look after their cats, water the plants and such... one year they bought her those wellies to say thanks, which was really kind of them.

That’s a real nice touch. And far too elaborate a story to make up as an excuse for owning middle-class wares! I vote for man of the people.

Near where we used to live were two cafe's, one was a wooden hut on the allotments where you could go buy their excess produce.. you could get a decent cup of tea or coffee for 70p, chipped cups, wash your own pots type of establishment, the other is a stately home, afternoon tea type of affair for moneyed pensioners in pastel trousers. The boy liked to swing by here for a small tub of their exorbitantly priced ice-cream, it was served on a china plate with a really nice spoon, he prefered the plastic spoon you got free under the lid so when he wasn't looking my mrs would sneak the posh spoons into her bag.

When she called at the allotments for a cup of tea she woulkd sneak them out of her bag 'incognito like' and into their cutlery tray, and vise-versa she did the old 'spoon-switcheroo' for the tea-stained 'allotment' spoons when she went for ice-cream (hopefully neither establishment realised what was occuring) She liked to think she was making the world a nicer place, one spoon at a time... guerilla-equality :)

Haha! Square grand pianos. They're about as much use as a chocolate teapot.

Cool spot though.

Finally paid a visit to Middle Child sandwich shop in Philadelphia for my birthday lunch. If youre ever in the area, cant recommend it enough. Eating the "So Long Sal!" here (Salami, prosciutto cotto, onion, sharp provolone, house dressing, artichoke spread, arugula, on a hoagie roll).
