What Was the Question?

One year on, just in case you were wondering, Nearest Village – or at least the tree outside it – still says No (or ‘nothanksImallright’ as people say when you try and hand them a flyer inviting them to a free bike breakfast. Honestly, some people don’t know what they’re missing in their eagerness to show that they’re too shrewd to be taken in by anything)

Apologies for the quality of the photo, by the way. The sun was setting and the light was dying. At 7:30 in the evening. What is the world coming to?

Chestnuts and venison in stews, Jerusalem artichokes, good heavy new world reds…get a grip the possibilities are endless. I agree that being in the dark is boring, so get drunk early, go to bed early rise at 7am and enjoy the day. Obviously for younger viewers the advise to get drunk was merely a quip ( no it was not).

    ‘nothanksImallright’
    I prefer the Northern English ‘nothanksyoureallright’, which carries the implicit accusation that whatever you are offering it is for your own sake, not altruistic at all !
