Possibly. As you may have noticed, FFS has been rather quiet since the beginning of the year – as quiet as a term at Gaylands School one might say. Yes, Timmy does get into a few scrapes (eating goloshes, being smuggled into George’s dorm etc) but the Kirrins’ adventures are generally confined to the glorious hols. I’m pleased to report that although I have not been doing much else, I have been gallantly cycling in to work most days, well wrapped up and partially waterproofed. As cyclists out there will know, however, cycling in waterproofs can be hot and sticky work and it’s even worse if you’re not fully water-tight. So, I am most tempted by one of these rather lovely Inverness capes:
Rather than the traditional tweed, this one is made from waterproof fabric and is light and airy with lots of coverage (the wet feet issue is still to be resolved – wellies I suppose). And it comes in yellow! (red and blue are both also available). It’s reminiscent of the waterproof outfits donned in Five on Kirrin Island Again and can be bought from Bobbin Bicycles for £51.
