Before you get to go in my hot red hatchback, I’m to take you to my bedroom. I know it goes the other way round, but doing things in reverse So I’ve got these heavy, curtains in my room. You can never close them completely, there’s always a tiny at the top. A pinhole, you might because on a sunny day my bedroom a giant pinhole camera. It works only for red objects, but on mornings that coincide Jubilee line maintenance I can lie in bed watching perfect but inverted rail replacement buses across my ceiling.

One morning there’s a new inverted red on my ceiling – smaller, less and more desirable than an old dragged out of retirement to compensate for for London’s shortfalls. It’s too; I need to get up and have a Oops, sorry ladies, morning.

It works very but I think a hot hatch should a gear stick, shouldn’t it?

Anyway, it’s way out of my league – £19,000 (for a Polo!) – and I it’s a fling rather anything serious. But it was fun, it lasted. And look, the space is there, right outside my So if the sun is shining tomorrow morning, I can up with it once more.
