Seasonal survival tips…#3 Talking therapy
Pick a random topic to introduce to every party conversation between here and New Year. We respectfully suggest the following: loft insulation (unless you’re in the building trade, in which case better make it animals in clothes), stuff you’ve found in skips (unless you’re my husband, in which case it’s going to occur naturally) or rabbits. After a while you’ll become aware of strange looks, at which point you can retreat to the bed covered in coats and lie down quietly with your silk pillow until the taxi comes.
Silk less serious. That’s the spirit!
