25th May is the anniversary of the short-lived People’s Republic of Treacle Mine Road. I would wear the lavender, but the smell makes me feel sick, so I’ll make do with this picture instead!
If you have never read Terry Pratchett’s Night Watch, I thoroughly recommend it. It’s the best of the Watch novels, despite the majority of the Watch not featuring in it that much. You get to see the history of Ankh Morpork before the series started, and you understand how Sam Vimes found himself in the gutter, literally, at the start of Guards, Guards! A little bit of retconning happens, but it’s a wonderful read.
