Hackney livin' n lovin'. Sarky frosty knickers always gobby, and perpetually pissed off for good reasons. Wind up merchant extraordinaire, but a nice old fashioned unusually unusual gal... Writing lots of wrongs.

Happy Independence Day y’all


This is just an excuse for me to post this superb performance by his awesomeness, Marvin Gaye.  Quite possibly the sexiest man who was once alive.

Notice how he hit’s those notes so effortlessly, something so many over the decades have failed to do, when singing unaccompanied at the Super Bowl or championship games. Most massacre it in the process.

Anyway, to all the yanks and ex-pats and especially my good friend Claudette in Los Angeles (Marvin’s biggest fan) – Happy 4th of July.

And it’s not just America’s special day. In the UK, it is Independents Day, a day to recognise independent local retailers.

Go do some local shopping on your high streets today.
