For that retro gym-teacher look: Patrick nylon sweatshirt, from jumble sale in Laughton, identical to the one worn by Mrs Harvey, netball coach, mid-’80s. From Firle, a very sweet pair of ’60s tasselled loafers (too small, sadly) and some reading matter courtesy of Pat Barker, Jane Smiley and Peter Carey. The latter was the answer to a question in the pub quiz this week (‘Which Australian author…?) – which we won, incidentally. Just thought I’d boast a little.
