The Tweed Pig Break
Exhausted, but happy, the Tweed Pig staff clock-off for their annual break
The wrought-iron gates at Tweed Towers have been brought clanging together and firmly locked. Old Jack, dressed head-to-toe in classic workwear from Old Town and wearing hob-nail (tacketty) Hill Boots in kip butt leather from William Lennon, has been handed the keys and instructed to keep a watchful eye on the old place before the workers return. He'll be rewarded with a stick of rock for his efforts, as long as he doesn't sleep on the job again.
Yes, the picture of the traditional deckchair from Southsea Deckchairs (above) signals that it's time to take a break. That's the Edwardian Deckchair with Stool model, and it looks so comfortable I'm almost snoozing just thinking of reclining on it.
We're off for a dip in the Adriatic - no phones, no computers, no newspapers, but plenty of sun (according to the forecast), wine, cigars and general niceness. Hopefully, something as comfortable as the Edwardian Deckchair to lounge around on too.
Feel free to get in touch for all things classically British or gems that remain hidden. Bye for now.
