Kirstie has the last laugh

I have been outwitted by a friend who has given me a hand-made tie for Christmas, and a book by Kirstie Allsop for my girlfriend.
The tie is of knitted green yarn, and reminds me of some of the ties that my late father, who wore a tie every day, even for digging in the garden, wore. It does not look home made, and I will wear it gladly.
My favourite present is a Dymo label printer. I have begun to label everything in the house. Chair. Table. Knife. Fork. Spoon. Salt. Pepper. Cat1, Cat2, Cat3, Cat4. Boy. Woman.
Next week: verbs. Instructions. Admonitions. Pleas. The possibilities are endless. This is only the beginning. I wonder if any-one has ever written an entire short story on a Dymo.
