Editorial

Welcome to our very special bumper anniversary 10th edition. Now we wanted to do something a little special but couldn’t think what exactly. Well, I was discussing this with Mother, over breakfast. I recall we had kippers, which neither of us has ever liked. I gave mine to our cat, Tiddles. Mother had somehow come to the conclusion that it wasn’t a kipper, but a dead goldfish, and so flushed it down the loo. However, she had thought of the idea of giving every reader a free, knitted, three course lunch, although she flatly refuses to knit soup. I expressed my feelings that it would all be a bit too much, not only all those meals, but she’d also have to knit the plates, the cutlery, the serving plates, and even the condiments. Especially that none of us can knit so won’t be able to help it would be a lot on her plate, so to speak. Then she came up with a brilliant idea. She poured us both a cup of Earl Grey and opened a fresh tin of a M&S biscuit selections, and suggested that we all nominate our favourite pieces from past issues. So that’s exactly what we’ve done. There’s new stuff on page 10. There’s a free MP3 download of Charlotte De’Ath’s ‘Wedlocked’. There’s all our favs from the last nine issues. What more does a 10th anniversary issue need.

Say no more.
