So, friends and regular readers may know that, here at the Mixtape, we live in a tiny, very run-down Victorian cottage in the centre of Brighton - a kind of two-up, one-down. Bought about six months ago through a rare stroke of pure good luck, we have set about the - to use the technical phrase - fucking massive job of doing it up.
This has been slow going - through money and time and practicalities and all sorts of other boring things. However, something recently has clicked and progress is still slow, but wildly encouraging.
We need a new sofa, many boring and essential things. But, this week, I bought my first properly big purchase for the new house.
It is called 'You Can't Fuck A Shoe'. It is a limited-edition print by Tracey Emin. Please share in my joy.
