Why do I continue to believe that drinking loads of wine and staying up too late is, despite all the evidence to the contrary, beneficial to my health? I suppose because I like doing both, but I confess to feeling a tad weary this morning, all told. And what is more, it is raining that kind of thick invisible drizzle that sticks to your person and sinks into your bones. Or your boots, if like mine they have a hole in the sole.
Nothing to be done but shove on some sweet Irma Thomas, as Soul Queen Of New Orleans she knows how it feels to be swampy blue.
Davy's Top Tip - I think you'll find 'Two Winters Long' especially magnificent.
