Carnaby Street decorations
The place next to where I'm working at the moment makes Christmas decorations for all the big shopping centres and high streets around the country. That's what they do all year and nothing else. I keep trying to peek in and see if they're all wearing little elf hats. It would be pretty ironic seeing as the grimy warehouse in South Bermondsey in which they work couldn't be any less Christmassy (although they have put tinsel on the barbed wire around the site). Anyway, the other night I saw all the Carnaby Street decorations from this Christmas just gone spilling out of a skip. I asked if I could have one of the reindeer wearing a space suit. I wasn't allowed.
