[forever twenty past two]
You're probably diving head first for the comment box to tell me that the clock is all wrong. I realise that it's the done thing to have a large vintage clock face in faded chalky colours with a Thos J. Smythe & Fils logo, but I can't bring myself to do it. I regret that this has to come between us.
OK then, it's not that big a deal. I'll take down the clock. Here's a photograph that will look fine above the shelf instead.
Courtesy of my lovely friend Annie's visit to Brighton, it represents the majesty of the ocean and commemorates former President Coca-Cola of America. A more timeless look, you think?
