I’ve mysteriously knackered my right foot and am supposed to be ‘resting’ it, but I’m a busy person and I got stuff to do, y’know? So I found myself limping around Homebase yesterday among the Christmas decorations. Yes, their Christmas corner is already up and running and normally I would start growling at the earliness of the season and the vile, vile commercialisation of the festivities. But the decorations were pretty and sparkly, and I spent several happy minutes picking things up and going ‘ahhhm’ and sniffing anything cinnamon scented. I should probably just hide away from anything else Christmas-related until the start of December, otherwise this benevolent mood will slip away like so much glühwein down a parched throat.

    You know what I saw in my local CostCutter the other day?
    Some new type of chocolate called ‘Mistletoe Kisses’.
    In October, for fuck’s sake.

    I am very angry at all the chocolate in the Co-op (and the mince pies. People only eat mince pies at Christmas, they are not a year-round pastry treat!). But the decorations held a kind of sparkly innocence… it probably helps that they were tasteful ones. Not Santas dropping their trousers etc.
