Have A Very Snowy Christmas!
This year, the usual festive Christmas hamper at Fowler Towers is being replaced by a Turkey Meal-For-One, after which Admin will retire to his room with a copy of ‘Bleak House’ (cf. Hancock’s Half Hour: ‘Christmas will be just like any other day in this house – dead miserable.’)
I had been wondering what more could go wrong this year when the lift to our sixth floor apartment broke down and remained unprepared for two weeks. But that was just the start. The husband has now caught Covid, the Christmas dinner is cancelled, the company delivering all our food just went bust and the Royal Mail lost my Christmas presents.Â
But all was not lost. Our regular commenter, the charmingly esoteric and frequently peculiar (love that word) ‘Snowy’ periodically gets mad ideas and puts them into practice, manufacturing all kinds of Christmas novelties. Snowy fully understands the concept of obsequiously flattering vain and silly authors, and so this Superannuated Detectives Kit arrived in the post this year to do our tree proud…a Merry Christmas to all!
