Come rain or come shine

The BrisStyle Indie Eco Market is on tomorrow, no matter if the heavens have decided to open up or not, so don't let a little rain dampen your spirits.

Let your happy feet tap all the way tomorrow, Saturday 6 November, to St Augustine's, Racecourse Road, Hamilton between 9am-2pm.  You will be guaranteed a spiffing* time.
  • * 1853, of uncertain origin, probably related to spiff "well-dressed man." Spiffing "excellent" was very popular in 1870s slang. Uncertain relationship to spiff (n.) "percentage allowed by drapers to their young men when they effect sale of old fashioned or undesirable stock" (1859), or to spiflicate "confound, overcome completely," a cant word from 1749 preserved in Amer.Eng. slang spiflicated "drunk," first recorded 1906 in O.Henry.

I am not suggesting that you will become drunk!


I'm a little stir-crazy today.  I'm up to my eyeballs in orange rickrack in an effort to complete some goodies for the upcoming BrisStyle Christmas markets.   By the time this evening comes around, I will be well and truly ready for a colour change.  To red.  As in wine.  With pizza.
