I must confess I'm not a great one for reading but since I collect cups and saucers I might be interested in the pottery book if it is illustrated.

You're right, anything that's not on the Antiques Roadshow I find has little interest. (Don't they do their fingernails marvellous on that as well? You can see where they've filed them.)

Life in the big house, well, what can one say? It's always like this.

We need tilers every morning 7 a.m, corner of Chichele Road and Cricklewood Broadway, cash in hand, no questions asked. Strong, young and healthy only please.

I thought this was another article about the Holy Rotors at first, Local Boy Made God. I was going to say Bishops Avenue is not very local. That's where the Divine Child lives, I believe.

I don't mind doing a bit of tiling but I don't get up till 10 and i'm not Polish or Kosovan. Does that matter?
