I have spent much of the day - most of my gainfuly employed day - in making a tam o'shanter sort of hat (not plaid). Unfortunately, having just tried it on I seem to have spent much of the day making a hat that is too small. All is not lot - I can unpick the seam and insert a bit of fabric to increase the band size - but it is extremely annoying, and rather defeats my sense of having accomplished something. Oh well, I suppose the moral is not to underestimate the size of my skull.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that although you believe you haven't seen an Inspector Morse episode, five minutes in you will be sayin "Oh, it's the one in which X turned out to YTW and S did it."
