Finally, my birthday present from Jimmy has arrived. It is lovely. It smells of brand new Startrite shoes, 1976 (that’s good), it is made in Britain and it is red – I know I’m not 5 anymore, but hey, I’m so happy!
The Guardian told thousands of people they should get one not that long ago – but I have always wanted one and so I don’t care that lots of other people have one too. I keep looking at it and in a minute I’m going to put my purse and sunglasses in it for work tomorrow. Then, I will sit it by my bed so I can look at it before I go to sleep tonight … sad? moi?
The Cambridge Satchel Company came up trumps in the end (Jimmy had to chase them a bit), if you don’t mind waiting a month then I promise you won’t be disappointed … All is forgiven!
