Friday night we went to the Beat Route. I got dressed up like a dragon’s dinner in a torn sack skirt, red Crimplene flowered blouse, and matching tights that Mum made out of a chair cover with a black twenties tabard and a big wooden crucifix. My hair ws plaited, covered in ribbons and rags, topped off with a big black fedora. “Blimey” said Jon. “You look great.” I loved turning up at clubs with him. I let people think what they liked – they always did anyway.
