DEAR SUMMER

Dear Summer

Yesterday I went into the Old Man Umbrella shop with friend to buy an umbrella. There was an exquisite selection of lady’s brollies in the corner with chocolate brown fabrics and mauve tassles. But the air was crisp and the sun was shining and I didn’t feel like I needed a new umbrella yesterday. I thought that soon Spring would bounce into my life and Summer would be on the doorstep.

But urgh. No. I didn’t even need to open my eyes today to know that it was grey and miserable and raining. Winter – you are not very popular with me.

Apart from the smell of newsprint on the back seat of a car on a hot Summer’s day in the 80’s, the opression in the tube carriages in the 00’s and inflated travel prices online there is not a lot I dislike about you Summer. I don’t need to wear all my clothes at once, in fact I can wear very few. Tights good bye! Sunglasses hello! Mango, barbeque, smiles and lobster. Good looking men appear in Summer – all the dark woolly hats and grey scarves matching the “non beard beard” on their face dissapears. Finally we can see you.

Summer, please come soon. I know you are still working in Australia and a Summer there is far better than any Summer could be here in Britain, but there is something quaint and pretty about British people pinking themselves up in Soho parks. And I have a friend who could use some Summer in his life too. Please come soon.

Thanks you for taking the time to listen to me,

Your friend

LADY GANG


Here is my first picture from the Lady Gang Dinner round at Sarah’s house that Pippa cooked and Jasmine, Alex, Bev and I all ate. I don’t know why it is, but whenever I post tights and stocking pictures to my Flickr, the views for these pics TOTALLY BLOW UP. There are always these different Sock and Tight groups wanting me to add my picture to their group etc etc. I’ve checked some of them and I don’t think they are for people with fetishes other than being into socks, tights and stockings but you never know.

I think the green spot on Sarah’s cashmere tights comes from when she and I were falling on the floor together in the kitchen. I can’t really remember the joke now but it involved throwing amaretto biscuits directly into the mouth and Sarah striking a weird pose and talking so I couldn’t understand her.

What I do remember clearly was wiping tears from my eyes asking “What the fuck are you doing?”


Pippa and Alex


Jasmine. Her face says a lot about Sarah’s iPod. German choral music, hymns, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Big Boi. ED DMX used to say I had the worst record collection in the world, but fast forward to the year 2007 and if I had an iPod I now know that isn’t true.


Bev and I
Bev was telling Alex and I about a big photography fair in Paris in November. I’m tempted to go. Any excuse to go to Paris is a good one.
