My dears, I am disturbed by the return of the 80's. I have seen far too many gelato-coloured shoes, white vinyl miniskirts and new-wave haircuts in my recent travels. As the frontrunner for "worst-dressed pre-teen of the 1980's" I beseech thee, fashion designers - don't revive it.
One of the great things about holidays is that one can marinate in lucious prose and have mental space to consider the ideas it raises.
I'll start that novel one day.
