Brolly Good

Another grey morning in Londontown and I'm thinking about how to improve on the forecast. The weather's not going to listen, obviously, but my mood got a lift courtesy of the vintage umbrella department of eBay.

Battenburg lace parasols. Kicky transparent-plastic 60s domes. Victorian bamboo-handled beauties, some a bit tattered, others as fresh as home-squeezed lemonade.

If you like a touch of vintage but don't want to look too costumed, a vintage umbrella is a great halfway house. Shelter under one come the next storm and be a spokesperson for situational advantages.
