In many respects I'm an old fashioned kind of girl and there are a number of traditions that I adhere to from year to year. At the start of daylight saving, for example, I springclean my flat from top to bottom, and on the day after daylight saving ends I get the bus into town and buy a new batch of stockings and socks for winter. Jack laughed when I woke up on 4 April and declared that it was 'hosiery day'. Off I went and when I returned home later that day I had a nice selection of unpilled socks and run-free tights to show for it. I store them in this pretty embroidered linen bag made by a lady long ago who clearly shares the same traditions as me. Her embroidery is just beautiful.
