'You have such a way with words,' Mr Grigg tells me.

Doggers on Bluebell Hill, dreams of Gingsters pasties stuck where the sun don't shine, a begonia allergy and a cast of colourful characters as long as Mr Grigg's tongue when Posh Totty trots past, it's all here.

And I think I've lost it.
That's about it.
