While I’ve been away, we’ve had the sad news about Victoria Wood’s death. The woman who gave us a whole new way to look at women’s periodicals, male voice choirs, pipe lagging and grouting the bathroom.
Not to mention red cabbage, the sartorial attributes of Building Societies and the humorous use of the long vowel (have you seen my friend Kimberley? She’s really, really taaal).
The real genius of the woman was her ability to find funny stuff in mundane, everyday things. And manipulate the language in a very clever way.
It would have been her birthday yesterday. Treat God to a raspberry yoghurt….
