Handbags & Gladrags

There was a very short time in my life when I did the Chanel, Armani, Manolo Blahnik thing.

It was expected when we had to meet Princes and Hi’faluting peeps.

Those times are long gone.

Thank goodness.

This song always brings me down to earth. My paternal grandfather was a Tanner. As a kid, I’d walk to the Tannery, not far from Castlerig, and SMELL the works. And the disgusting turgid canal beside it that was brown and dead and stagnant!
